Hollywood DC

Hollywood, D.C.

Several days after they've rolled up the red carpet, the Oscars are still making cartoon headlines. This past week, cartoonists used a spoonful of pop culture to make the politics go down a little easier: government, not entertainment politics. Al Gore's successful crossover bid from Oval Office to golden statue only strengthened the connection between the Dems and the celebs. Mike Lester's working stiff--and his kick-in-the-butt for Gore--stand in for less media-crazed Americans who equate Hollywood and the rest of the left coast with the left side of politics. And Mike Keefe's Gore gets his Oscar revoked in a 5-4 Supreme Court decision.

Al was the obvious link, but it was just a short leap to drawing conclusions between the inflated egos of Hollywood to those in the over-crowded '08 presidential race. Keefe also saw the Oscars as the Obamas, with a pissed-off Hillary, who "used to love these big Hollywood wing-dings," storming out. In RJ Matson's cartoon, Hillary is the Queen of Fundraising. Taking potshots at Hollywood is easier than whipping up the usual Hillary dig. There's a wealth of material in those little golden statues.
