Nailing the networks
Political cartoonists are in a tough, very competitive business, having to be many more things than just gifted artistically. They must be politically intuitive in an absolutely up to the minute manner so that their creative gifts can evoke at least a chuckle and more hopefully a gleeful belly laugh from a far more sophisticated audience than those artists who draw for the funny papers.
One of the best of the current lot is Antonio Branco, who has an uncanny ability to come up with imagery that conveys more truth and insight into our current political state than the wisest of political pundits could impart in several paragraphs of sage observations. This latest Branco creation does just that:
America has never witnessed an election where the unbridled support of the media for one candidate and one party has been so in-your-face-America brazenly obvious as what is going on now. Even so, it seems the Democrats have saddled themselves with a sick old socialist simply because in their goosestep minds, it's time for a female president, and this obviously debilitated contender is what they just happened to have waiting in the wings. Waiting a long time – so long, in fact, that it has just become an assumption by those on the left that Hillary is entitled to our presidency, as if it is her presidency. That is not an idea that goes down very well with those of us who are fed up with the sense of entitlement that pervades so many of Clinton's supporters.
Looking at Branco's spot-on art, one can only hope that those in-the-tank networks will keep pushing until their rigid goddess of big government pitches forward into a very long, steep drop.
Mr. Branco, you nailed it.
