Who Best Captures Blagojevich's Hair?
Draw exaggerated faces long enough, and you also draw fire.
That's one of the first lessons the professional caricaturist learns. I know that from creating thousands of syndicated caricatures and cartoons over the years, I've also drawn countless complaints. Readers have griped and groused about how I've portrayed -- in no particular order -- Jimmy Carter's lips, Magic Johnson's grin, Bill Clinton's body, Tiger Woods's ears, George W. Bush's eyes, Bob Dole's nostrils, Monica Lewinsky's mouth, Tom Cruise's height and Mark McGwire's entire 'roided-out mass. And those are just the highlights.
There's one feature that I've never a discouraging word about, though, and that's exaggerated hair. Yessir, when it comes to hairstyles, apparently no visual hyperbole is too great. Which leads us to the subject of the day.
Yep, you guessed it: Rod Blagojevich.
Blago caricatures have been churned out fast and furious since the scandal broke, and cartoonists have had time to hone The Walking Haircut. Now that the Illinois Senate has voted to unseat Blago, I've whittled my recent faves down to these four. Now I open up the floor -- and ballot -- to you to ask: Which of these Blagos is best?
You can vote below. Meantime, 'Riffs has one last question: Wouldn't the aforementioned Tom Cruise be ideal to play Blago in the movie? If you've got a better casting call, then I -- like President Obama -- am all ears.
