This Week's Oz Political Comics

My man in Japan, Michael-sensei, has turned up a motherlode of recent Oz-themed political cartoons.

  • Tim Campbell brings new dimension to the term "flunky monkey".
  • Rob Rogers shows our soon-to-be-former current President leaving an interesting message for all of Washington to see.
  • Clay Bennett has a similarly themed comment, if not quite as spectacular.
  • But the winner here, in my opinion, is Greg Kearney, commenting on the state of hospitals in rural Kansas. (Since I live in rural eastern Washington, I can sympathize.) The great part about this one is which character he uses, as it's not one from The Movie! I'm not sure how many of Kearney's readers will get the reference, but probably enough.
