My interpretation… Politicians are supposed to kiss babies… Obama kisses Kucinich…Kucinich seems happy about it…
Kucinich is the only purity and integrity in the race.

Sometimes I feel like a lonely speck of dust trapped in a vacuum.
I’m a Kucinich supporter and this cracked me up!
Now I could go into a long explanation about the psychological or subliminal message. Or I could try and read Fish’s mind and point out the intended message. But I have learned, when you have to explain humor to someone the explanation is as lost on them as the humor.
Suffice it to say ... we laugh when we see the unexpected!

Yes it would be the “perfect baby to kiss” but the United Farm Workers just sided with Billary in Ca.. I would rather see him kiss baby Edwards but maybe it is too soon..if that ever happened and those who love baby Edwards followed Obama, he would have the nomination and the election in the bag!

I’d like to make a request for Truth Dig to use some editing criteria before printing the Fish cartoons. You’ve printed some distasteful Fish cartoons in the past and the Kucinich/Obama cartoon is bizarre. I have a lot of respect for Mr. Scheer so seeing this cartoon in Truthdig saddens me. Mr. Kucinich is the most courageous man in politics today. He has chosen the courageous stands on all the major issues;Iraq,health care, impeachment, the Patriot Act, breaking up the media/military/nuclear energy conglomerates etc.. If Fish was around at the early stages of Martin Luther King and Gandhi his warped perspective would probably have tried to diminish them also.

I don’t understand what is implied by this picture? Two people who actually have some wisdom and care about changing the mess in our country and what our country has done to the world and you are insulting them?
