one minute forty years moment of silence opening ceremonies 1972 israeli athletes olympians munich massacre flag ioc international olympic committee
Remember how during the last Winter Olympics they spontaneously decided to hold a moment of silence at the opening ceremonies in memory of the Georgian luger who died on a training run? Yeah. But for the Munich Eleven, oh no, it's not even worthy of consideration. (Are we bitter? You bet we are.)

ehud olmert mostly innocent thank goodness the political witch hunt is finally over haim ramon wearing puritan costume holding torch now lets burn some right wing american jews at the stake
Yes, this was pretty much the reaction of Ehud Olmert and his supporters once he was partially acquitted of corruption charges, charging that some sort of nefarious cabal of conservative American Jews was behind everything. Hypocritical much?
(On a side note, drawing Haim Ramon in a Puritan costume was much more fun than it had any right to be.)

Cross-Posted Classics: A Mockracy (7/7/09)

This marks the end of the Cross-Posted Classics; as of now, all of my Post cartoons are now available on this blog!

ayatollah khamenei mahmoud ahmadinejad standing on balcony watching iranians protesting election results riot police crackdown complaining people give em a taste of democracy and they start thinking they can choose their leaders
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad commenting on the arrogance of his Iranian subjects.
I guess everything old really is new again, innit? This depiction of Iranians protesting the hotly contested 2009 election results calls to mind the later "official" Arab Spring riots--including a striking (and unintentional) similarity to one I drew this past November.

peanuts style drawing barack obama sitting behind obamacare booth smiling the doctor is constitutional gop republican elphant as charlie brown good grief snoopy wearing judge robe and wig
With the SCOTUS ruling on Obamacare, I had the opportunity to do a follow-up to my original take on it that I'm sure you all remember from three Septembers ago. The cobwebs are gone, the doctor is constitutional, and Charlie Republican is about to pay through the nose. Why's Snoopy there? Heck if I know.
