...Geez, DaveyK, what did Angelina Jolie ever do to you??

The Hillary caricature is awful, but this one isn't even the worst of them. During the Clinton administration, Tinny mysteriously fluctuated between depicting her as Jane Fonda--complete with aerobics workout gear--and Rosanne Barr. He has since settled on a combination of the Barr look and Maggie Thatcher with extra-beady eyes and the mean, toothy smile. Any caricature with the beady eyes is a more worthy nominee.

Which reminds me: remember when Tinny complained about the liburl meedeea devoting so much time to "The Bush Smirk," but offering no coverage of "The Hillary Smirk?" I'm still waiting, Tinny. If "The Hillary Smirk" exists, why haven't you ever drawn it? Polite self-restraint? (snark snark)

Anyway. I'm voting for "Al Gore" (again!) because that's just a total crap caricature even by Tinstandards, and he obviously tossed the whole strip off even more half-assedly than the average slapdash mess. Jeez, he looks like a penguin. Or The Penguin, waaaak waaaaak waaaaaaaaaaaaak.

I voted for the Saddam drawing because, while all the other drawings are terrible, Saddam is one of the easiest people in the world to draw a caricature of, and his offering doesn't even come close.

I think that should be "Dennis Hopper or Giovanni Ribisi?"

I'm going for Hillary, just because that bottom lip creeps the hell out of me.
