Black Friday Violence
Jimmy Margulies published this political cartoon to display the animosity of the bargain crazed crowd on Black Friday. He illustrates four the newly trained Navy Seals whose final test is to tame the overexcited and rambunctious holiday crowd. He uses this example in order to show the humorous depiction that the "holiday" of Black Friday is getting way out of hand and that even Navy Seals would have a hard time fighting their way to the front of the line. This cartoon would appeal to anyone who partakes in the rampant consumerism of Black Friday.

Commentary: I found this cartoon very humorous because black Friday has become very violent and sooner or later the Navy Seals may have to step in and help with the crazed shoppers.

Newt 2012
Randall Eons asserts that although Newt Gringrich is running for the Republican spot, he has the convictions of a Democratic candidate. Eons humorously displays a Democratic donkey wearing a Republican Elephant mask as if to try to come across as something he’s not much like Newt is doing. He shows the donkey carrying the "Newt 2012" sign in order to show that you can’t be sure exactly where Newt stands on the issues. This cartoon should prove a reminder to all voters that they should be cautious when listing to what their candidates have to say.

Political Movement
The Denver Post published a political cartoon that shows different major American protests throughout history that display how Americans stand up for causes they believe in. But by labeling the Occupy protesters sign with "watch this space", the cartoonist implies that the occupy movement does not have a clearly defined cause. The cartoonist wants to get the point across that they believe the occupy movement is aimless in order to express their opinion on the protest. This cartoon is clearly directed at anyone who is involved in the Occupy protests or anyone who is interested in the 2012 elections.

Commentary: This cartoon was the hardest to depict because I couldn’t tell if it was making fun or the Occupy protesters or classifying them with major American protests.

Stomping Out Occupy
Wolverton, in his political cartoon, establishes that the very rich 1% can easily squash the 99% protesters whenever they see fit. By using a giant boot, it displays how much power the very small percentage of the population has over the rest of the population. He uses scale and exaggeration in the cartoon in order to illustrate the power and control the 1% hold. This cartoon will a strike a nerve with anyone who believes their voice is not being heard.

Kirk Walters states that the dream of strong holiday sale will save them from the weak economy. He implies that the retailers believe that the big holiday sales will not only help the economy, but also boost their profits. The cartoonist uses the cliché Charlie Brown Christmas tree to symbolize the economy in order to draw a parallel that anyone can understand. This cartoon would appeal to any retailer and anyone concerned with the current economy.

His purpose is to show how our world has developed though time and how each country has stapled itself with a certain image in order to show the facade of the world.

Spray Santa
Cardow, a political cartoonist, in "Spray Santa" humorously depicts the little boy as the crazy black Friday shopper that pepper sprayed her way to the front of the line to get the ultimate gift, while Santa must oblige to his wishes. His cartoon brings forth how greedy America has become that we would stoop so low as to pepper spray Santa to get what we want. Cardow uses Santa’s smug expression and the little boy's threatening statement in order to establish how morals are gone as soon as the stores open their doors. This cartoon can relate to anyone who participates in shopping on black Friday, and also the lady that pepper sprayed those people.

Canada Gray
Cardow, a political cartoonist, in "Canada Gray" displays how the President and the Canadian Prime Minister are noting how much each other is aging. He uses the same thought bubble for both men to show that todays politics are taking a toll on both of them. Cardow's purpose is to show how much politics stresses and ages our leaders in order to show hard they really work. This cartoon could alter someones perspective about how hard our President works to make our country a better place.
