We haven't had one of these for a while. My editor and I have been seeing more or less eye-to-eye lately, which makes me worry for his sanity.
This time, he took one look and shook his head. Among others, the words, "cheap shot" were uttered.
I begged to differ. I wanted to point out the irony that in a supposedly stand-up democracy like ours (unlike the Iranians' corrupt excuse for one), leaders could still be chosen by arcane means that defied the real numbers.
He didn't buy it. It looked to him like a gratuitous slap at our ex-President.
To me, that was just the icing on the cake, not the main thrust of the cartoon.
What do you think? Should it have run?
