TolesWatch... The Post's cartoonist pictures Uncle Sam playing a tuba, and moron-cantelope-head President Bush playing a violin while telling the UN's Kofi Annan "You're not keeping up." Annan is drawn reverentially--really, it's a beautiful, majestic rendition of the man, who's given a grave, bearing-the-burden-of-peace expression. Given the fact that Annan is the conductor, Toles apparently agrees with the liberal notion that the president of the United States' primary obligation is to follow the lead of....the United Nations.

I've concluded that Toles is part of the tradition of artists who excel at the center of their craft and stumble endlessly when describing the politics of the world as they really are. Spike Lee, Roseanne Barr, Oliver Stone, I'll draw up a longer list sometime.
