I will say anything by Ted Rall is by definition idiotic, and that certainly qualifies.
I would note that many on the left agree his work is awful and that is why on March 15, 2004 his work stopped appearing on the website of the NYtimes, it was never in the paper that I am aware of, and was all deleted from the archives. LINK
The work you show seems to be from July of that year, so this never had the NY times imprint.
Do you have any examples that the person making the racist comments about Condeleeza Rice did not suffer consequences? Do you have any examples from someone who wasn't already marginalized because of their prior terrible views?
