New Cartoons: "Condi Looks at the... Brighter Side of Middle East Violence" and ">"Car Confessions (Mitt Romney Makes Like Mel Gibson"
Plus: Masheka has Bush's tips for dealing with black people
I drew two cartoons this week, something I'm trying to do more often. The first was inspired by a strong desire to shake or slap Condi Rice after watching her smirk and smarm about the wonderful progress and conversations she'd been having in Lebanon and Israel--meanwhile, missiles continued to be fired all over the damn place. But hey, I guess if they claim to see wonderful progress in Iraq (100+ civilian deaths per day and counting), they can claim to see it anywhere. (For something more focused on civilian deaths, see Big Fat Whale's "The Price of Life".)
It's been pretty obvious for about, I don't know, FOREVER, that Mel Gibson is a hateful right-wing anti-Jewish Holocaust denier, but I guess for some people it took him letting his true colors show in a drunk driving incident to make it totally clear. So I thought... what if all kinds of other politicians ruined their careers by revealing their all-too-obvious-but-apparently-not-obvious-enough bigotry in drunk driving incidents?
Also, Masheka has Dubya's Tips for Dealing With Black People, inpsired by Bush's sad little appearance at the NAACP a bit back:
