I love political cartoons. They’re funny, sly and subversive. They question authority, draw attention to corruption and highlight social ills. A good cartoon cuts through all of the bullshit straight to the heart of an issue. The right image can be more effective than the wordiest rant so it's an ideal form for our attention deficit age. These cartoons are irreverent and poke fun at our rulers, of course, but our political system is pretty much surreal comedy anyway. I don't own any of the images but I enjoy them. I hope you do too.
