Political Cartoons: Are Obama supporters too thin skinned?

Obama supporters are up in arms over the hard-hitting cartoon which has appeared in the New Yorker. Welcome to the cut and thrust of American politics. No quarter is given or taken. Cartoonists have savaged George W Bush and Condoleezza Rice. They just roll with the punches. Obama has benefited from a high degree of favourable media coverage so far from the Liberal media.In contrast John McCain, Hillary Clinton, George Bush, Condoleezza Rice and John Edwards have been subjected to very harsh treatment by elements in the media. I don't recall any of them crawling into a glass case. Me thinks Obama supporters doth protest too much. The first two cartoons are anti Obama cartoons. The remaining four are anti GOP cartoons. Liberals must realise what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Democrats are quite good at dishing it out. What are they complaining about?
