I am thinking the concept here is that presidency, which had its start with Washington, has morphed into being occupied by more recent presidents (denoted by the young body, and some will see Obama’s body) who have a hard on for imperialist wars. Or substitute presidents as a symbol for the country as a whole. Works either way. Awesome cartoon.

No better way to illustrate the depth to which the nation has sunk, due to dominionist wars and economic policies. And Washington looks so sad! As sad as most of us feel!

I do not know about you Mr. Fish? ... Every time I read one of your essays it has sexual or suggestive sexual proclivities mentions in it.
But, this time your connotation seems very accurate, I suppose we could substitute George Washington for just about any one running for president right now, well…. except for the less significant candidates like Ron Paul and third party folks!
Using George Washington, the father of our country seems a bit over the top, but makes its point and I find the cartoon very amusing, I just may be as deluded as thou!
The US establishment has a clear fetish for the military and its industry, truth and facts are always very hard to take on!
