update with John Stewart’s take on this which HAS to be the last word ( a video is included at the link)

here’s Jon’s proposedΒ  statement for B0:

Barack Obama is in no way upset about the cartoon that depicts him as a Muslim extremist. Because you know who gets upset about cartoons? Muslim extremists! Of which Barack Obama is not. It’s just a fucking cartoon!

Update

yes, I did say Stewart was the ultimate – but this only confirms it:

the cartoonist was on Charlie Rose last night all defensive. Charlie played Jon’s clip and the guy lit up and said “I just sent him a keg of beer”
