In case you're wondering why the cartoons in the Atlanta Journal Constitution are so slanted, one need only look at this interview with Pulleftist Prize-winning cartoonist Mike Luckovich.

You've satirized numerous presidents. How's this presidency different?
Previously, whether I was dealing with a Republican or a Democratic president, I always felt that they were kind of up to the job, basically. And this president, to me, doesn't seem that way at all. It's very scary to me that he occupies the office.

That doesn't sound so impartial. Are you a Democrat?
I am...

Some of your cartoons are kind of dark.
We're in a dark time in history now. The country is needlessly divided.

Yes, needlessly divided. All we have to do to be undivided is convert to liberalism. Just like we're needlessly at war with militant Muslims and all we have to do to stop it is convert to Islam.
