This is intense

This cartoon is going to break Bush's heart big time but I doubt too many people mind it.

Thank you Mr. "There is Hope." I think I understand your cartoons, at least most of the time! You also appear as extremely intelligent in your comments (see, I have no problems identifying intelligence, only the meaning of cartoons!). Thank you for helping out.

Mother of all cartoons,

As I understand it:


  • - Iraj has an anti imperialist viewpoint of the world, and as such his cartoons are the way they are, anti imperialistic.

  • - Garbage can is the same as garbage bin, garbage dumpster, garbage heap, trash can, trash bin, trash heap, trash dumpster, ash bin, ash heap, ash dumpster, and so on and so forth.


Help, please

First, it's good to have Mr. Iraj's different kind of cartoons here. I stay away from cartoons because when I don't get them they make me feel stupid. I believe it to be a very elitist art form!

Now, about this cartoon: Is George Bush the basketball? Can someone please help decipher, so that I can learn to understand political cartoons a little better? Can someone tell me his/her own interpretation of this? Does this cartoon mean that people are throwing George Bush into the garbage can of the history, and all his supporters, such as Cheney and AIPAC "stacked" together, cannot save him?

Any guidance will be appreciated, most importantly from the artisit. Thank you.
