Anti-Muslim Cartoon Scratched (R-rated for Dennis Miller adult language...)

Over two dozen US newspapers including the Washington Post last weekend decided against publishing a cartoon depicting a couple where the girlfriend just converted to Islam. Apparently the cartoon, prior to the decision, was shown to several Muslims working there who may have expressed their concern, after which the decision not to publish was made.
Was this the right decision? What about the first amendment to the constitution providing for freedom of speech? Are we "running scared" of Muslims, but Jews and Christians are fair game? Is this the ultimate in political correctness?
Here is the video on MSNBC. Click on or copy and paste the address in a new browser, go to "Editor's Picks," and search the pages for "Is Islam Off-Limits in Comic Strips."

And here is Michael Smerconish as he appreared on the television show The View, speaking about his book against political correctness, called Muzzled:





When you finish viewing those, here is my all time favorite anti-political-correctness-guy Dennis Miller - swoon - I'd marry him just to hear him rant!

So, what do you think?
