ABSTRACT
The article discusses the codependent, love-hate relationship between political cartoonists and their subjects. The author explains why President George W. Bush is so fun to draw. Politicians gain esteem from being worthwhile subjects to commit to paper, while cartoonists get the joy of commenting on their policies while benignly assassinating the people who make their livelihoods possible.
