Warburger, the Infinitely Prolonged

Warburger, the Infinitely Prolonged

I was working on a different cartoon addressing the new House majority’s promise to slash social programs from the Federal budget, while commenting on how the defense budget would probably remain untouched, but before I could finish it, Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced his intention to reduce the growth of the defense budget by $78 billion over the next five years.

While this is a paltry amount, considering that the overall budget will still be allowed to grow, I felt my original gag might not seem appropriate to the average person in the context of the announcement, so I set it aside and instead drew this one. I’m very happy with how the illustration came out in it, especially the shading (which didn’t go so well in my last cartoon).
