Political Cartoon 4

This wonderful cartoon is directed towards the lack of intelligence that Sarah Palin radiates. The cartoon shows us a shower scene in which Sarah Palin is staring at her hand with simple directions needed to cleanse herself properly.The words  “Lather,Rinse,Repeat” was drawn on her hand to illustrate Palin’s horrible memory and/or her ignorance towards simple routines. This cartoon was created because of an incident where Palin was giving a speech and was spotted looking at her hand, in which she wrote tax cuts and energy on.

I don’t think that the shower itself is relevant to Anderson’s claim. He could have drawn a completely different cartoon with the same message by supplying any type instructions on Palin’s hand. The only thing I can think of is that the idea of Sarah Palin in the shower makes me happy. Anderson is trying to expose Palin’s weakness, common sense. The lady doesn’t even read the newspaper, how can she be worthy of Presidency? This cartoon did not offend me and Anderson is right for depicting the image in this manner. If i drew it up, I probably would have shown some more skin; just to make up for the lacking of her other physical properties, such as a brain.
