Cartoon is great but it is not just the White House that has been trashed and demolished. It is the U S of A and its relations with the rest of the world. Hard to illustrate that with pencil and paper though.

Yep, I had that same thought. If only it were just the White House. And you write like my sister, are you?

But the White House represents all Americans so, in fact,
this cartoon speaks for all that has been destroyed by
this administration and, in particular, by Bush, Cheney and Rove.

Nice, MLS. Yes, I hadn't thought of that.
Remember when Bushco moved into the White House and they claimed that the Clinton staffers had trashed the place? They said that they must have been animals to do the disgusting things they'd done, implying toddlers run amok, smashing the state china and smearing the halls with their feces, that sort of thing. And it turned out to all be a lie, but that part of the story never got told. It was another Rovian ruse to seal the fate of the Clintons -- and Dems -- once and for all. And being Rovian, they probably realized that trashing the White House was symbolic of trashing the nation. How sadly ironic that they are the ones who have literally done the damage.
