The Nexus of Politics and Acid

Even more so than usual, this round-up of political cartoons on Wonkette just slays me. All political cartooning is a kind of surrealist exercise; the Cartoon Curmudgeon demonstrates what happens when that is taken too far. Or, as he puts it:

It’s hard to define exactly how far is too far, but generally, it’s when the whimsical transformation you depict goes beyond “Ha ha, that animal is talking and wearing clothes” and hits “SWEET JESUS I’LL NEVER TAKE PEYOTE AGAIN I PROMISE JUST MAKE IT STOP”.
