PMs and Cartoons

The Dominion Post editorial notes that defending cartoons of fornicating dingoes and Indonesian presidents indulging in sexual congress is thankless work, but that those who value the freedom of the press should be grateful that it is work Australia’s leaders are willing to do.

They specifically praise the attitude of Johm Howard who says exactly the right thing (despite being a target) with “I don’t approve of the taste but I’ll defend to the death the cartoonist’s right to be tasteless.”
One can contrast that to our PM who repeatedly attacked editors whom made the decision to publish the Muhammed cartoons.
