For help on how to follow a comic title,
Mask or no mask, where did I say that “the only way” to avoid voter fraud was to engage in in-person balloting?
I was simply drawing a voter utilizing a typical polling-place method of casting their ballot.
I have been a poll worker where the available voting stations at the precinct sites were small individual platforms with cardboard walls on three sides. Those platforms continue to be used.
I didn’t show the voter wearing a mask because I wanted to show the voter shouting. (Please note that I did not show the voter being in close proximity to anybody else).
I also depicted a vulture perched on a polling station even though vultures in real life do no such thing.
The use of metaphoric images in the cartoons is a common and familiar one. If you interpret cartoons literally, then they are not cartoons.
The bird depicted is a vulture for a reason—to show an invasive, unwanted and dangerous winged creature.
I didn’t use a double-headed Russian eagle because it is likely that most readers wouldn’t recognize it as such.
Hoffer’s “True Believer” is an amazingly insightful and accurate work on why people join mass movements. Highly recommended.
Let’s see what you can do, Rembrandt.
Point #1: “democracy” IS a word derived from the French term “democratie” by way of 16th-century late Latin from the Greek “demokratia.” The word “demos” means “the people,” while “kratla” means “power” or “rule.” Combined, it means “power or rule by the people.” In modern parlance. the word “democracy” refers to “a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.”
Point #2: The cartoon was not meant to be humorous.
Point #3: Before engaging in debate here, please first do your homework; otherwise, you come across as, well, “pathetic.” No more ignorant excuses on your part. Get to work.
Yes, the debacle of the Trump residency is not funny at all, as the cartoon indicates. Ya with how political cartoons work? No? If you stick around, you may learn.
“a sh*tty posting?” Wow. We have Shakespeare amongst us.
Those not familiar with editorial cartoons often demand that they always be ‘funny." Sorry, but such critics don’t dictate the ground rules.
@William WorkmanYou are not the ultimate arbiter of what is or is not poor taste, which is always in the subjective eye of the beholder. This matter was legally settled in 1981 in a unanimous decision by the U.S. Surpeme Court, Falwell v. Flynt. What is the prime example of poor taste is the poor taste, poor judgment and poor leadership of DJ Trump.
