    Whoa…Never mind the politics, artistically speaking, Oliphant hit it outta the part with this one. That’s one incredible use of light and shadow in this drawing.

    You might try looking off shore.

    Yeah, and why don’t we? They’re the ones who should be out, but they get the billions.

    Simon: Absolutely right. Everyone else is a hack compared to Oliphant when it comes to sheer artistic ability. No other editorial cartoonist even comes close.

    Read an article yesterday that stated that 9 out of 10 bank executives that were inplace in 2006 are still employed in their same capacity. The boards defend this fact by asserting they cannot find replacements with such vast experience.

    Here again is the “experience” vs “change” theme…

    Hmmm … after the experience with W & crew, think I’ll go with the change.

    Pretty sure there are a number of out-of-work bank employees.

    cartwrights: Not only is Oliphant one of the best (I hesitate to say “the best”, because there are other fine draughtsmen working in other styles) artistically, but he’s mean to EVERYBODY. So far he’s been reasonably kind to Obama, but it won’t be long… The Pulitzer for Editorial Cartooning should just be renamed the Oly.

    cartwrights: Up to a point I agree with you, but for sheer artistic talent, Pat Oliphant’s got nothing on Ben Sargent. Did you see Sargent’s ‘Oliver Twist’ cartoon from a last week?

    Another amazing piece of work.

    TXMYSTIC - Don’t you mean “half-vast” experience?

    Looks like a slippery slope to the soup kitchen.
