I got this is an email from Chris yesterday. I really thought it was fantastic and asked his permission to post it at FR. This is his take on March on DC. Chris said he drew hoping that it would somehow reach a wide audience and doesn't mind it being distributed anywhere we feel so inclined.
KEYWORDS: 912; marchondc; teaparty
Chris and I are email acquaintances. He is a fantastic artists, though most of what I've seen is not political. He's got a great online store where a lot of his and other "outdoors" artists works are available; Sporting Artisans
. Unfortunately the bank account precludes me from buying most of what I'd like, but this little gem is free.
I posted it yesterday evening, but decided this morning to put it in the editorial section.

Follow up from yesterday. I talked with Chris and he said we're basically free to distribute this wherever we so inclined.

He needs to add more people standing behind Uncle Sam. After all, we all know the outcome of the Tiananmen square fiasco.

A picture is worth a thousand words.
And as usual, the political cartoon captures a full story in the space that a 1,000 word editorial would occupy. And says the same thing far more eloquently.
Just an aside, but wasn’t that gentleman who stopped the colonnade of tanks eventually executed? The Chinese waited for all the excitement to die down first though. Seems like I remember reading that.

That one Chinese hero has had a super impact in China. He may have lost his battle, but in the end his act, imo, will win the war for Freedom there. G-d bless his memory and spread it far and wide.

What march on DC? I was not informed! And I listened to ABC news last night! No mention of any march at all!
Sarc/off, but ABC did NOT mention a march on Washington at all!

Don't like it.
Makes "Uncle Sam (big criminal government)" seem like the victim.
Great idea poorly executed.
I'd prefer to see the 912 in front of the tanks driven by Pelosi, Reid, Bawney, Dodd with of course, Hussein in the lead tank...

Better yet, have him draw a picture of a patient gut donw on a table labeled “America”, with his rear up in the air and Obama injecting all the stuff your friend has listed above on the tanks listed instead on the hypodermics in the patients butt with the caption “You don’t need any of this and it wont help you get better, but I’m sticking you with it anyways!”
