  1. Why’d he draw Barack doin’ the white lady’s nails? He is the President, not some shoeshine boy.

  2. Would have been better without the caption. But this one isn’t bad.

  3. I believe he’s suggesting that Obama appoint a Korean lady to handle budget review. And I feel that’s racist.

  4. During the campaign, Obama chided about spending cuts McCain by saying something like, “we need a scalpel, not a chainsaw.” I remember thinking, “that’s odd, I was thinking we need more than a chainsaw.”

  5. again – rearranged

  6. Fuck cutting implements, we need a flamethrower.

  7. That’s… racist? I guess?

  8. The federal budget is Sonia Sotomayor?

  9. Golf Clap, Henry Payne – I chuckled.

  10. But I laughed at ed’s comment…

  11. If it’s not raaaaaaaaaacist, it’s definitely faaaaaaaaattist.

  12. “Why’d he draw Barack doin’ the white lady’s nails? He is the President, not some shoeshine boy.”

    Hey Obama! Go home and get your shine box!

  13. Was that supposed to be a white lady?

  14. ‘Cuz that definitely makes it raaaaaaacist.

  15. Maybe I just don’t like political cartoons.

    Any cartoon where something has to be labeled to indicate what it represents just has FAIL written all over it for me. A cartoon should be more than just an illustration of a watercooler conversation:

    “Obama’s budget cuts are like he’s giving a manicure to a grossly obese woman and she’s complaining about how much it hurts.”

    “I should draw a cartoon of that”

    “But how would someone know that the obese woman represented the budget?”

    “Oh, I’ll just write ‘Federal Budget’ on her.”

    Where’s the funny? Any joke that needs indicators of what stands for what is a FAIL.

  16. “Was that supposed to be a white lady?”

    No. Look at her hair. She’s half black and half white just like Obama. NTTAWWT

  17. In high school, we were shown the OGRABME cartoon from the War of 1812 and supposed to think it was brilliant. Didn’t work.

  18. If it’s not raaaaaaaaaacist, it’s definitely faaaaaaaaattist.

    P Brooks,

    The enlightened call this “body shaming,” and know it’s every bit as bad as racism and rich people.

    Mr Payne clearly needs some lessons in tolerance.

  19. oh no he di’nt!

  20. Why’d he draw Barack doin’ the white lady’s nails? He is the President, not some shoeshine boy.

    Maybe it was Joe Biden in blackface?

  21. He should be putting lipstick on her piggish snout, too.

  22. Pretty good. Props to H.Payne.

  23. The federal budget should have been drawn as an anglerfish, with Obama announcing that he’s going to cut of the little glowing doodad…

  24. WTF?,

    I believe you meant to say: ‘Go home and get your fucking shinebox!’

  25. I forgot how much I enjoyed the bitchy comments that come after every not funny political cartoon. Well done, Reason readers.
