More Cartoon Appreciation Week

And get a load of this sculpture of Rumsfeld by Oliphant! I don't know about you, but it makes me itch to take a big lump of wax and express my feelings for various incumbents and incumbent wannabees, and their henchmen too.

Those in the DC area can get a load of this sculpture in person if they head over to the Stanford in Washington Gallery on Connecticut Avenue near Woodley Park. Along with almost a hundred other Oliphant drawings, prints and sculptures. Go, it's cathartic!

You've confused "cathartic" w/ "carpathian", you Doomkopf/! How do you spell doom-cough, anyway?

That is a cool sculpture. Has that been cast from the clay original?

Mike, you're thinking of "Carharttic", which is something that's emotionally purging overall.

Timm, it's cast in bronze from a wax original. They used it cal it the "lost wax process" because the wax sculpture was melted in making the bronze, but now they can do it without destroying the original.
