Title: Political cartoon

Summary: A little girl is watching an interview with the senator (whom I think is supposed to be Barack Obama before he became president) and he’s promising health care to all–even people’s animals. This political cartoon was found on cartoonstock.com. There was a large variety of cartoons and pictures about all different kinds of political issues.

Topic: Universal health care

Category: Image

What is it?: A political cartoon found on http://www.cartoonstock.com.

Audience and Agenda: CartoonStock was founded in early 1997 by Ed Beardwell, a new media consultant/developer, and Joel Mishon, a professional cartoonist. CartoonStock was the first searchable cartoon archive on the web and the first to offer online licensing and downloading of printable images. This company now represents some of the worlds biggest corporations, including ABC, BBC, McGraw Hill, NASA, American Express, Newsweek, Maxim, and over 300 more.

Usefulness: Political cartoons are a great way to send out a message and lighten up the issue of sometimes depressing politics and its issues. The one I have chosen was simple and easy to understand. It was most likely created for a political campaign, which is where a lot of these cartoons come from.
