Hmm...Maybe they were right, Mr. Stantis?

Scott Stantis is a conservative cartoonist for the Birmingham (AL) News. While I disagree with most of his cartoons, they rarely tick me off like some of the other knuckle-draggers out there (Chuck Asay, Henry Payne, Michael Ramirez, for example). But it's interesting to compare his cartoon from January 2001, when not enough Democrats were putting up resistance to John Ashcroft's nomination as Attorney General, with his latest cartoon:

I guess I could accuse Stantis of being a "flip-flopper," but I prefer to congratulate him on finally seeing the light about Ashcroft. I hope the hoods are finally coming off the heads of some other Republicans, and they're finally seeing exactly what sort of sadistic morons are actually running this country.

BTW, Paul Krugman has a good column today about Ashcroft. The first sentence?
John Ashcroft is the worst attorney general in history.
It's good, but still pretty mild compared to the in-his-ugly-face tongue-lashing that Senator Leahy gave Ashcrotch last week.
