I had to comment.

Will we ever see a cartoon depicting the pope exorcising a donkey? I doubt it, even though the donkey represents the American political party most directly opposed to the Catholic church’s official doctrinal positions on several essential issues, not just on a particular pope’s political preferences. Predictably, though, this truth goes almost completely ignored by the people who create and propagate things like this. Could it be that the main purpose here is the ridicule and demonization (quite literally in this case) of an opposing political philosophy instead of being honest?
