Cartoon 1: Government Shutdown

This is an untitled cartoon in the "Government Shutdown" topic section of by artist Daryl Cagle.
The cartoon depicts two sullen characters, an elephant and a donkey, each blaming the other for the Government Shutdown. The artist uses the the elephant and donkey to represent Republicans and Democrats respectively; satirically portraying the inability of the two groups to reach an agreement as a petty dispute in which neither party is right. This cartoon's message is that neither party is more to blame for the shutdown and without compromise no resolution will be met.
