Not Lady Liberty!

Filed under: Pics,Politics — Dangerous Dan @ 8:46 pm

LGF and Powerline have both pointed out that the Village Voice's homepage has a picture depicting President Bush sucking Lady Liberty's blood, as seen here:
Suck

Pete the Elder made a GREAT observation that the image is reminiscent of the cartoons in The Onion's Our Dumb Century, where various entities against whom the U.S. was fighting were depicted attempting to rape Lady Liberty. In the interests of fun and demonstration, I scanned them and posted them below for your enjoyment. Take note of the similarities and how the Village Voice is a parody of itself.

  1. Picture of the Day
    The Villiage Voice currently has a picture of George Bush sucking the blood out of the Statue of Libertys neck as its main web page picture. It reminds me of the editorial catoons from The Onion book Our Dumb Century….

  2. I certainly hope they paid Alex Ross to use his painting in such a way. What a flagrant disregard for copyright law.

    This is the origional painting by Alex Ross. Shame on them!
