    Such a simple cartoon really…. Can applied to our own countries concept of fair play….. Competition is looked upon as hurtful and unfair. Not to mention the untold damage to ones self esteem of…….Loosing!

    Going further one could apply this methodology to the world stage. Its high time we allowed the rest of the world to shine. Could the devaluing of the dollar be part of the “leveling of the playing field”? How about unilateral disarmament?

    So many levels, so many dangers….. Or rather I’m really reading into this cartoon more than Zack intended…..

  1. “Or rather I’m really reading into this cartoon more than Zack intended…..”

    –Like hell you are! I intended all of that, Ikabod, and I think you know that…

  2. I have to say it Zack, this cartoon brings back the subtle wittiness that has been kinda missing from the past few ones, which were more of straight jabs at the Dems.

  3. Thanks Scott. I see your point; though to me, things like this one are far more damning of the left (which is almost synonymous in our day with the Democrats) than any of my recent snide attacks. The last ‘toon was basically saying that they’re a stomach-turning lot; this one is laying out WHY they’re a stomach-turning lot.

  4. Apart from affirmative action, itself a poor example of the “slowing down” mentality depicted here, where does this kind of thinking actually manifest? And where does it have any consequences in terms of actual policy?

    In any case, the whole “self esteem” thing has indeed gotten ridiculous in some quarters. When competition is downplayed, and when bogus “awards” are given for merely participating, it devalues everything.

    Is this a flash-back to Alex Lane when he was a stupid, no-nuts little kid ?

    My early experiences with “self esteem” are on two fronts one as a young kid in Santa Cruz, Ca (yes THAT Santa Cruz, one of just many locations of the lefts social and drug experimentation cities). Whereas competitive sports at the elementary school level was just moving towards the “Everyone is a winner” concept of ending games. Or “Its not your fault”…… What ever it was, it wasn’t your fault. Kid stole a candy bar at the local 7/11…… SOCIETY is to blame? Later on with my nephews going through the LA Unified school district… Creative math and spelling was also used to help prevent one child feeling less intelligent than the other. To bad kids can’t sue the school district for educational malpractice.

    Zack: I have NO idea what your talking about! I look forward to continue making up my own assessments of liberal nonsense that your cartoons continue to display.

    Or rather:

    “Zack Rawsthorne’s cartoon are critical of liberal theology than they appear”

    How nice of that boy to not put a competitive slant on an event like “RUN for FUN”! 🙂

  5. Zack, when you get a call from the Whitehouse complimenting you on such a beautiful and inspirational cartoon, try to keep a straight face.

  6. Steve:
    [“Is this a flash-back to Alex Lane when he was a stupid, no-nuts little kid ?”]

    No– more like a too-gawky Jayson, drawn in a hurry ’cause I crammed this sketch in between assignments. But you’re right, he does look vaguely like a young Alex. Which would certainly make sense.

    Look for a re-draw of Jayson to be inserted into this ‘toon when I get some free time…

  7. Stilton: That’s pretty funny! Now that you mention it, there ARE lots of folks who would take this as a study in nobility, period end.

    cobainfan69: –On the other hand if he’s encouraging the other kids to win the race, wouldn’t that be just a weird new flavor of Competitiveness?

    Sorry Zack-!
    I forgot how brainwashed Jason was… typically, wimpy little liberal kids never accomplish much in athletics anyway.

    For those of you who find that confusing or “offensive”, the attitude young kids need to have to maintain high levels physical fitness, is rarely accepting of the class-envy politics of the left, or the white-guilt mindset.

    One (among many) benefit of good sports programs – they build good character, teaching kids you “earn your keep”… not wait to be an ‘Affirmative Action” President of the Harvard Law Review… followed 20 years later to be the first Affirmative Action President of the United States.

    Hurry-up,…! …someone call me a “racist!”

    Wait, that kid is supposed to be Jayson? He looks like he has the mumps.

  8. cobainfan69: Like I said– drawn in a hurry…

    Check back within a few days for a renovated Jayson.

  9. Steve… you raaaaacist!

    Do you feel better now?

    I like the change shirt…
