Hunting Wiberals

By 2012 the Toons had assimilated into everyday life.  With few exceptions it appeared that the newest members of our society blended in beautifully.   Some of the problems were obvious.

Foghorn Leghorn’s crusade against the eating of eggs, “Look it here son, I say son, do you not see that eating the egg is Chicken abortion.”

Who could forget Mickey Mouse’s reaction when he realized that he had to clean up after Goofy and Pluto?

Probably the worst reaction came when Wile E. Coyote, was sued for trademark infringement by Acme supermarkets.

But the Toons found success too.  Bugs Bunny became a famous baseball announcer.  Here’s a sample of Bugs announcing with Tim McCarver during the game of the week.

        Bugs: What up Doc?
        McCarver: You mean What’s on Second.
        Bugs: I don’t know.

The ratings on Elmer Fudd’s and Porky Pig's new radio shows would soon eclipse that of Rush Limbaugh’s show.  Fudd was ecstatic.  “Wush Wimbaugh was the king of wadio, until I came awong.”

Limbaugh didn’t sit still for this indignation, “My friends, this Fudd character, an illegal alien, is obvious faking his speech impediment, just for the ratings, or as he would say the watings.”

Regardless of Limbaugh’s claims his ratings continued to fall, while Fudd’s rose.  Fudd had found an audience.  “I bwame the wiberals for our economic diwema.  Our fiwst cawwer is an old friend, Daffy Duck.”

“I can’t believe that I was such a sthucker for that Ponzi stheme of Madoff.” Said the Duck

“Be vewwy, vewwy quiet.  I’m hunting wiberals.  Look theres a wiberal twack.”

Would Limbaugh take this lying down?  He was recently seen with Snidely Whiplash and Boris Badenov.  Could a plot to get rid of Porky and all of the legislation that it’s attached to, be grilling?

The political cartoon is not a news story and not an oil portrait.

The political cartoon is not a news story and not an oil portrait. It's essentially a means for poking fun, for puncturing pomposity. ~ Herb Block

You are bringing the Political cartoon to a new level. Cartoons have always, been used to reflect the impressions of the public, by using illustration that draw attention to important social and political issues. Most use visual metaphors--symbols like Uncle Sam, the Democratic donkey and Republican elephant --to explain complicated political situations, and thus sum up a current event with a humorous or emotional picture. ln thls piece as well as the earlier ones, are uslng verbal metaphors attached to Looney tunes cartoon characters to do the same thlng. You may have lnvented a new style of journalism. Bravo. Great job.

Thank you. But I don't put that much thought into these. It's just making fun of the absurd with characters that I've always adored. Beep Beep.
