Jerry Falwell Almost Too Easy

Jerry Falwell: Almost Too Easy

Tuesday was a sad day for the religious right, but a busy one for cartoonists: evangelical pastor and longtime critic of homosexuals, feminists and the Civil Rights Movement, Jerry Falwell died of heart failure. The right and left immediately squared off to editorialize on his legacy post-mortem, while cartoonists instead sifted through Falwell's rich backlog of absurd quotes and personal missions for fodder. For the most part, these obituaries steered clear of the traditional candles-and-flowers tributes, though they were rather respectful given Falwell's track record of venomous attacks. There was nary a cold-hearted take down in sight--but more than a few Tinky Winkies at the Pearly Gates.
