One of the most common editorial cartoon metaphors is the “Are we there yet?” cartoon, with “kids” in the back seat bugging a driver. It has been drawn hundreds of times, addressing all kinds of issues. I do one every couple of years. There was a big Yahtzee of more than a dozen “Are we there yet?” cartoons during the run up to intervention in Libya, but I don’t recall seeing one on the current run up to intervention in Syria, so I thought it was time for me to do another one.
I thought I would look through the archives for some other “Are we there yet?” cartoons. Here’s a couple of nice ones from RJ Matson of Roll Call.
Here’s an oldie from Joe Heller from back in 2008.
I drew this one about the Gulf Oil Spill, as Obama was being criticized by Fox News for being slow to react – “just like President Bush with Hurricane Katrina.”
This one by New Zealand cartoonist, Chris Slane, amused me.
