HAR HAR HAR!!!
When I was a kid political cartoons could sway public opinion almost as well or better than a well written article in the mainstream media. I found that some used humour to such devastating affect that even if you disagreed with the artist's politics, you had to laugh and agree with the message of the cartoon. Nowadays it seems that the political cartoon seems to have fallen by the wayside and been replaced by the 'internet meme'.
Humour as a political weapon takes real wit and finesse to wield. What I've been seeing lately is that the political left no longer does humour. Sure, they have memes and cartoons that insult and degrade and denigrate - but they seem to lack the humorous 'zing' required make the message hit home. I wonder about that - has the left lost its collective sense of humour because they've lost their intellect and wit? Or is it because everything is offensive now - right up to and including a good belly laugh?
