By the Comics Curmudgeon

Say, have you heard that all boundaries between high and low art have been blurred? It's true, supposedly! That's why comic books written for socially maladjusted children are now being turned into critic-friendly movies, and famous paintings are being transformed into dopey kitsch. Is there any kind of art that it's still legitimate to mock and deride? Why, political cartoons, of course! Join in the hate, after the jump.


Hey, everyone, have you heard of the Batman movie? It is a very popular movie that is in the theaters right now, and it has a scary villain called the Joker! This villain is exactly like Al Gore, because Al Gore is an evil, psychotic clown who wants to kill us all. Also, Al Gore died of an accidental overdose of prescription medication earlier this year, and everyone was very sad.

Hey, everyone, have you heard of Salvador Dali's "Persistence Of Memory"? It portrays melting clocks in a surrealistic hellscape! This painting is exactly like Iraq, because just like the clocks in the painting, the time for our withdrawal bends according to the whim of some unseen God! And those melty clocks make for excellent blankets. Sleep soundly, Mr. President! Soundly and surreally!

Hey, everyone, have you heard of the Batman movie? It is a very popular movie that is in the theaters right now, and it has a scary villain called the Joker! This villain is exactly like John McCain, because John McCain is an evil, psychotic clown who wants to kill us all. Also, he was in a funny movie about jousting that had rock and roll music in it! John McCain was actually a semi-professional jouster when he was in the Naval Academy, in medieval France.

Hey, everyone, have you heard of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie? It was a very popular movie, several years ago! It features a number of easily recognizable movie stars that are apparently far too much trouble to draw when you could just draw a boat and write "Refugee Smuggling" across the side. The Pirates of the Caribbean movie was exactly like refugee smuggling, in that both are very lucrative but are probably a crime against humanity.

Hey, everyone, have you heard of the Batman movie? It is a very popular movie that is in the theaters right now, and it has a scary villain called the Joker! This villain is exactly like Joe Lieberman, because Joe Lieberman is an evil, psychotic clown who wants to kill us all. Also, Joe Lieberman had buttsex with Jake Gyllenhaal once, but it was all arty and tasteful and ultimately very sad.

Hey, everyone, have you heard about the Jeopardy? It is a very popular game show where your Comics Curmudgeon could have won some money, except that he blew a "World Leaders" Final Jeopardy clue and said Alexander Dubcek when he should have said Golda Meir. These two people are not the same person, it turns out! He was kicked out of the International Jewish Conspiracy in disgrace and forced to give up his silly French clip art to John McCain, the end.
