By the Comics Curmudgeon Remember when we elected a young, handsome president? This was a whole 23 months ago, so obviously the sweet blush of youth is long gone from the man's face, replaced by a sort of tired, ashy pallor. The presidency is a killer -- never doubt this! But in a way, Barack Obama's premature aging is a metaphor for America, which is also getting old and worn-out. And if there's one medium that's good at expressing these sorts of metaphors of aging, it's cartooning. (Political cartoonists are all old, because all young cartoonists are drawing tentacle rape hentai on the Internet.)
I feel sorry for a person who chose to be a cartoonist, as a professional career no less, who draws fat cats in his cartoons and then labels them as such <i> in italics.</i> There&#039;s something very sad about that.
And I just noticed the &#039;elect me&#039; button on the politician, because with two men in the cartoon I wasn&#039;t sure which was which. It&#039;s like the cartoonist is saying to us &quot;here ya go, retards.&quot;
The &quot;cartoonist&quot; (note the sarcastiquotes) is apparently 12 yrs old, since he clearly believes he&#039;s the FIRST to ever think of this idea, and thus doesn&#039;t need anything else, not even a hint as to which congresscritter he&#039;s attacking.
Or Scholastic&#039;s Weekly Reader?
(Is that still published?)
I reside with several fat cats and they have no concept of money or success, only of cat food and naps.
