A Ghoul Cartoon

Spelling out what political cartoonists
really mean
Observe the amazingly clever use of the backwards ampersand, subtly conjuring the image of all those ubiquitous demi-literate idiot children running lemonade stands with quaintly dyslexic signage in countless “You didn’t build that” cartoons. Here Branco ostensibly mocks Obama, but the hidden message is excoriation of the entrenched, subsidized oil-gas conglomerates and their child-like ignorance of morals and ethics. Our future? They aren’t building that. A Masterful Cartoon.
