Is it just me, or does Obama's head look kinda phallic?

At least, I think that's supposed to be Obama. With how little he looks like a human being, he could be a conehead for all I know.

Ha.

(context: The Finnish social services and health care reform, the Finnish abbreviation of which is Sote. The people in the cartoon are the leaders of the three government parties.)

Quote from: William Lyon Mackenzie King
There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.

No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Time for Garrison cartoon - interestingly this is the first time he has portrayed Trump looking at all weak. Bad signs:

Trump looks like he's thinking, "how the hell am I gonna get my 2:00am tweetstorm on with all this going on?"

Interestingly it does imagine that Saint Trump has absolutely no agency or opinions of his own.

The harsh reality of being a politician. Not getting anything you want and giving up your soul.

Let's throw in a historical one for a change. This one was made after the treaty of Versailles: the world leaders are walking away satisfied after signing the treaty but a child representing the "1940 class" is crying in despair. Hauntingly prophetical.
