Mashable executive editor Jim Roberts seems pretty irritated about Ted Cruz. No, not so much about the fact that Washington Post cartoonist Ann Telnaes depicted Cruz’s daughters as trained monkeys, but more about the fact that Cruz decided to turn around and stick it to the kind of people who think his daughters are “fair game”:

Here’s a screenshot of the fundraising email, via Mashable:

Yeah? And? What’s your point, exactly?

Fundraising email or no fundraising email, that doesn’t make Telnaes’ cartoon or her justification for it any less repugnant.

Did Roberts kick up any fuss when Hillary fundraised off of making herself look bad?

Or when Planned Parenthood fundraised off a deadly shooting?

Seems to us that Cruz’s fundraising effort is relatively reasonable.
