It's the outtakes stupid

Steve Bell's cartoon on British Chancellor Alistair Darling.

Steve Bell always seems to hit the nail on the head. This cartoon not only makes a great political point but says something about photography, editing, PR and even Britishness as well. Very clever.
Let's not forget that PR and advertising as we know it were born out of propaganda, and these days politicians public personas are as much fabrications as the happy families using soap on a TV ad.
Also, it seems like the U.S. Financial collapse is doing almost as much harm around the world as the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld & Co foreign policy. And if one more person says that nobody could have forseen this I think I am gonna snap.
