Political Cartoon - Palin by kitsuneii Political Cartoon - Palin by kitsuneii
Drawn for my school newspaper, the Warrior. The idea sprung from a combination of suggestions, so I can't claim it as entirely mine. It was rather rushed (I could only spend about half an hour on it, not including cleanup and adjustment in PS), so...yeah. Crappy quality. Sorry. :P

(Mechanical pencil, in case anyone cares.)

If want to know why Palin is such a BAD idea, (as well as the entire Republican platform in general) read this article. It'll scare you more than McCain, who should watch his back if he gets elected....

Why isn't THIS being discussed in the mainstream news?!

LOL nice. you cant be a MOTHER to a country you need to be a LEADER. its not about race or gender its about how strong and detached you are. hillary, even though I'm for obama and hillary was kinda a whiney bitch at the end, is a much stronger candidate than palin cause shes been playing this game for a long time she knows the score and stands up to sexism, if there is any. ANSWER THE QUESTION PALIN.

second panel is hilarious she has played the gender card so many times to get out of sticky spots. dumb.

Yeah. The idea was that she contradicted herself; she must either use her gender to her advantage (as she tries to in the first panel) or she must place it aside as irrelevant. She cannot do both.

You DO have very good art skills, kitsuneii, and I hope continue using and improving upon them . . . on a different, less controversial subject.

Thank you. This is the only time I have ever drawn something of this nature, actually, and it is not really my focus. :I

You did LOADS better than anything I have ever done, reference or no reference.

Noses always gave me the most trouble. Is it the same for you?

Yeah, noses are pretty hard. I usually just draw the nostril holes, though, and sometimes a small line here or there to suggest the shape. I find that, with noses, simplicity and minimalism are key. That is, unless one is doing a full-fledged realistic portrait with a strong range of values.

I think it's eyes that give me the most trouble, because it is hard for me to draw the same thing twice. Especially when, with eyes, they are mirror images of each other. It's also difficult for me to align them properly on the face. :P

Considering Barack Hussein Obama's hypersensitivity concerning his middle name, his incompetence with using a teleprompter, and his lack of TRUE leadership or military experience, I don't see what the problem is.

Last I checked, though, that wasn't even an answer she gave.

Maybe I'm being too touchy, I don't know. What I DO know is that Obama has no chance of getting my vote this November.

Nah, you're not being too touchy. I'm not quoting her directly, of course, and I didn't really have time to think that much about the wording or anything. But it is true that, when asked, she did not know what being VP entailed. Of course all candidates are going to have their shortcomings... none of them are perfect. :P
