Political Cartoons – Past & Present

Political cartoons have always been a way clever and humorous way of criticizing political figures and ideas. However the format has drastically changed over the years. No longer is this medium limited to the  simple cartoons with quippy phrases. Now, there are entire television shows that spend huge portions of their air time to offer their own, often very colorful, opinions on politics. In the following video, Weekend Update anchor from Saturday Night Live, Seth Myers, and his Muppet cohost Kermit the frog offer “their” opinions on the congress’ recent decision to count the tomato paste on school pizza as a serving of vegetable. Look at this comparison. Boy, things have changed.
