Political Cartoons

I'm a big fan of political cartoons - both drawn and written. The art of lampooning politics and politicians goes way, way back in time. I so admire how the artists can depict a politician and their beliefs with a few slashes of their drawing pens and make a big statement at the same time, and the editorial writers do the same thing with their words.

Having said that, 2016 and now 2017 have brought about an avalanche of political opportunities for lampooning. I often save to my Facebook page what I think are really funny jabs at Canadian, USA and Russian politics. No doubt I have offended some people.

But I am here today to say that I personally do not want to offend anybody. Politics are politics.
