This is a weekly politcal cartoon by Tom Tomorrow. It is drawn in a style that has often been compared to clip art. I believe the artist does this in order to further drive his points home when he is satirizing the establishment, although I'm not sure. Every week, this verbose cartoon criticizes something that is happening in current political affairs. Typically, Sparky, the penguin who is really an auk, gets into long winded cynical conversations with Biff, a buffoonish everyman. Generally speaking, the flippant nature of the medium of cartooning allows Tomorrow to tackle many topics in a way that would be difficult for more traditional media. This cartoon is usually funny, and often insightful. It can be seen every week on Salon.
