How can this be Offensive?
Apple has rejected an app that list contact information of every senator and representative in congress that has an artist drawn caricature of each person along side the information.
How can something be offensive that is done daily in practically every newspaper across the country? All political cartoons have caricatures of some kind.
What's the matter, did Apple's liberal feelings get hurt?

Just because it's done in practically every newspaper doesn't mean that it's not considered offensive to some. Perhaps there are some politicians out there that don't care to have their likeness displayed as a caricature, in an App, newspaper or any other form of media.
By the way, I personally don't have an opinion one way or the other on this. I'm just trying to look at it objectively.

Apple's rejection letter for Griggs' app states: "Thank you for submitting Bobble Rep 111th Congress Edition to the App Store. Weve reviewed Bobble Rep 111th Congress Edition and determined that we cannot post this version of your iPhone application to the App Store because it contains content that ridicules public figures."
The e-mail was signed by the "iPhone Developer Program" no name was given and it included an image of Pelosi that it deemed "offensive."
