Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Arizona newspaper blasted for cartoon showing Dem Sinema shooting down GOP ‘McSally’ plane”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Arizona Republic news outlet was blasted on social media for running an illustration that shows U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) using a rocket launcher to shoot down a plane named after her U.S. Senate opponent, Republican Rep. Martha McSally.

The cartoon depicts Sinema, a former anti-war activist, giving the thumbs up sign as she holds a rocket launcher with the word “substance” written on it. The cartoon also shows a plane followed by a plume of black smoke with the words “shallow attacks.” The side of the plane is labeled “McSally.” The Republican was the first woman in U.S. history to fly a fighter jet in combat and also was the first to command a fighter squadron.

“Arizona Republic editorial cartoonist Steve Benson on the McSally vs. Sinema #AZSEN race,” Arizona Republic national politics editor Dan Nowicki wrote in a tweet accompanied by the image.

Various Twitter users said the cartoon was “tone deaf,” in poor taste and an insult to veterans.
