To be clear- Ms. Telnaes has every right to publish whatever she wants to. That is her sacred right under the First Amendment, and none may deny her the same.
She does not have the right to be shielded from criticism when she does something stupid, though. And this was egregiously stupid.
It's not a perfect response, no matter what others might have you believe. Those dogs look altogether too serious and not stupid enough- and of course, if it was trying to be realistic, the New York Times dog should be a poodle bending over trying to blow itself, while the Washington Post dog should be a chihuahua frantically trying to hump Mrs. Clinton's leg.

(Sorry about that, folks. Got a little carried away.)
