Cartoon 3: Obama & Egypt

This is an untitled cartoon from the "Obama and Egypt" topic section of by artist John Darkow.
The cartoon portrays "Egypt" guarding a base, while "Coach Obama" gives Mubarak confusing signals as whether or not he should go. The artist uses baseball to symbolize the confusion on President Obama's stance on Mubarak in Egypt; Obama has faced criticism on being unclear as to whether he felt Mubarak should step down or not. The artists use of baseball as a methaphor conveys a humorous satirical critiscism of Obama for being unclear.
