If I was a talented Caricaturist

When one is thrown a hanging curve-ball, should a batter ever care about the politics of the pitcher? My guess would be: "No!" So if one advertises - presents oneself as a "fierce political moderate" one would expect that a picture of Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein together would generate all sorts thoughts of the many things which a caricaturist could do with such a photo. One would think a caricaturist would reproduce the picture; rendering in their inimical caricaturist style the two misogynists, maybe with a title: "Two of a kind."

Or a caricaturist (especially those which are representative of: fierce political moderation...) could draw a caricature in which Bill Clinton watches - both enviously and worrisomely - Harvey Weinstein with his hands all over the beautiful Angelina (of course the lovely Mrs. Smith would be drawn in the process of kicking Harvey's ass...) surrounded by a coterie some yet to be made renown Hollywood starlets. Suggested titles: "Bill Clinton sorta envy's Harvey Weinstein, but only sorta" or maybe this caricature could be modified to read: "Harvey asks Bill for Hillary's assistance with Bimbo Eruptions"

There are many others which a talented caricaturist could draw parodying movies, for example, Twins. And that could be the title; unfortunately, although Weinstein remotely resembles Danny DeVito facially, he is 6 feet tall a full foot taller than DeVito. And although Clinton could never pass for Arnie, they are the same height and exaggeration is what caricaturists are about so Bill could be given a chiseled physique. Around the smiling twins could be a harem of gorgeous women showing sundry signs of molestation and abuse...

Now we do not expect to see any such drawings, but any that bother reading this post will likely have ideas of their own about Weinstein and both Bill and Hillary Clinton. And the, oh so many, Hollywood associates of Weinstein that couldn't have not heard of all the ostensible rumors floating about Mr. Weinstein (another similarity with Bubba Clinton), and find it remarkable that either these associates didn't care to know the truth, or knew the rumors were true, but were not personally affected and thus they didn't care...

Damn, caricaturing must be a load of fun!

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
