A case of bad timing, combined with the bad judgement of Candidate Bachmann, prompted this cartoon. With 29 people dead from from listeria poisoning due to tainted American-grown cantaloupe, attributed to lax regulations — Michelle Bachmann visited a meat packing plant in Iowa. She called for the elimination of "useless" food safety regulations, saying they are "choking American industry." Occasionally, these cartoons write themselves, folks.

This cartoon was widely published, used on several cartoon anthologies —including the NPR "Double Takes" — and even appeared on the Al-Jezeera News website. As far as I know, it was the most widely distributed cartoon I produced last year.

Syrian political cartoonist Ali Ferzat was beat up and his hands broken by Assad's thugs. While still in the hospital with his bloody hands bandaged and his face swollen and bruised, he pledged to continue drawing cartoons critical of President Bashar al-Assad's corrupt regime. I was so moved by his resolve to continue the fight, I drew this cartoon in his honor.
