    You’re slowly but surely ruining my memories of camping, Zack! It’s that association thingy… ūüėČ

  1. Sorry, Mark; I mean well, really I do…

    Is that “Guaranteed employment for all campers!” Being blocked by that noggin? I’m sure Diversities leadership skills are enough to mount a counter revolution. Only I don’t think the camp would provide adequate support at the last minute.

  2. I think what I had in mind in that space behind the noggin, Ikabod, was “Empowerment to all Kids,” or some such Progressive tripe.

    Nice to imagine Diversity striking back, though the Mobami kid is liable to short sheet her bunk bed if she does, just for starters.

    Fine work, Zack. As I wrote elsewhere, Obama’s mind was, from a very early age, subject to the leftism of the grandparents who raised him. Later, it was steeped in the intellectual culture of Harvard Law School (nihilistic post-modern Critical legal theory, cognitive and moral relativism), Pastor Jeremiah Wright’s church (a hybrid of Black Power ideology and Liberation Theology), radical friendships with people like Bill Ayers (a domestic terrorist and radical anti-American/Western neo-Marxist), and activities like ‚Äúcommunity organization‚ÄĚ (aka, sowing the seeds of socialistic malcontent) in Chicago.
    Many Americans seem shocked at the President’s recent leftward lurch. However, given his exposure to the pestilential intellectual fads listed above, it was actually quite predictable.

    I must admit to being a little disappointed in you Zack. This kind of comic is far more the domain of cheap hacks like Mike Lester or the McCoys than your usual work. I always got the impression you were more about debunking ideology than making direct attacks on any given individual.

    Oh look. Many days later, and Longfellow still has it stuck up his craw. Well aged “whine” anyone? Beat. Dead. Horse. That “tune” is getting crusty.

  3. Get out your pads and write! Superb Zack! Detail, detail, detail, great job! The 3D effect, the wording, everything! Reminds me of what exactly they do in Cuba, child indoctrination. They make the kids in Cuba read Che’s “Motorcycle Diaries.” They also “classify” the kids throughout their schooling, here’s what I’m talking about:

    I know, it’s a long link but it’s worth reading (Just Copy n’ Paste). They go for the youth first and that’s what they are doing here in America. This way they can take them away from their parents. That’s what “Change” is all about. You slowly destroy your individuality and become a slave of your master, the government. Great job Zack!

  4. He’s so well spoken too…

  5. Outstanding synopsis of “the progress of a leftist,” Max. Thanks for the cogent reminder of Obama’s roots.

    Appreciate the input, Longfellow, but– haven’t you been hating my stupid polical cartoons all along? Wanting me to go into murals or something? Hard to now take your critique all that seriously when you’ve been razzing everything here for weeks. (Still, glad to get your opinion.)

    Donna: “Beat. Dead. Horse.” You’re beautiful when you’re angry. (And FUNNY.)

  6. Great link, Jose, an incredibly detailed look into the communist machine that is Cuba. Required reading for everybody, right or left. Thanks.

    Fine synopsis all the way around, so much of his history and current agenda,packed into a single cartoon! I love it. Maybe you could have put another cartoon of Obama handing out Harvard socialist Law Degrees, ( for 25.00 each) lol.

  7. Thanks Daniel, and glad you liked the cartoon. I’m just trying to flesh out some of the unknown gaps in the early life of our dear president.

  8. Laugh out funny.

    I’m spreading the word of your work here.

    Is there a reason you just pasted a picture of Obama’s face on your child caricature of him instead of just drawing one yourself? I just ask because it looks really jarring compared to the rest of the comic.

  9. badanov: Great, glad you liked it! As an actual cartoon character yourself you would certainly be qualified to judge.

    Just a quirky style thing, wootabega. I’m still working out the bugs of how best to render the Mobami character. Appreciate your input and may just go with a straight caricature henceforth thanks to your suggestion.

    Why is Diversity listening to Mobami’s lecture, especially given that he’s a thinly veiled Obama? Isn’t she supposed to be a conservative? Is the lecture required or something? I thought this was a traditional conservative summer camp with bologna sandwiches and rifle practice, not a liberal camp where dangerous black radicals preach overthrow while the white counselors turn a blind eye. Get your points straight!

  10. Am thoroughly straight on the plot details, Hysterical Woman. (Being a self-styled hysteric, by the way, might give you pause before launching into any fervent critiques, but we’ll put that aside.) Diversity could simply have been hanging with some new friends at this camp which you correctly recall as being conservative, when the bunch of them began to gather round little Barry to see what he was going on –and on– about. While the others were swiftly taken in by the young speaker’s smoothness (sound familiar), she intelligently noted his leftist scribblings and took ill, as any sensible person would. The snapshot moment we witness here depicts her dawning nausea at the general proceedings.

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by and for being– for the most part– a most cogent follower of the storyline.

    Zack, I can appreciate why you might be wary about taking my opinions into consideration, although I’d say “razzing everything here for weeks” is an exaggeration. In fact, most of my “razzing” has been aimed at commenters and the broader political cartooning medium. But I would just like to say that disliking a medium doesn’t immediately exclude liking specific works within that medium. Television is more or less the predicted wasteland, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t good television shows. Sometimes the exceptions prove the rule.

    Anyway, I must add that I’m glad to see the caricature more… well, caricatured in the follow-ups. I think it actually strengthens the comics immensely and avoids burying the lede.
