Hillary for Prison or Why We Like Caricature

One of the problems with political satire in any form is the tendency to create caricatures. This of course, is something that can also be done with text, but is especially poignant with imagery. Today's post is an example of that.

“And I Can See Russia from my House!”

In the 2008 presidential election, Republican nominee John McCain chose Alaskan governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. In the same year, the TV show Saturday Night Live chose comedian Tina Fey to represent Sarah Palin in spoofs and parodies. Hilarity ensued. One of the more memorable quotes from the 2008 election was Sarah Palin’s enthusiastic line, “I can see Russia from my house!” That, however, was actually Tina Fey’s line. Sarah Palin never said that.
