Bearman Cartoon: The New Gordon Brown

So I usually post editorial cartoons that my UK and other international fans might not get because of the subject matter.  So in honor of them (NobblySan, WIB, etc), I thought I would post a cartoon that 99% of Americans won’t get.  Hey most can’t name the US Vice President.

It seems that British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has survived a mutiny within his own party and has come out renewed as the “New Gordon Brown”.   Now I’ll be honest as I don’t know enough about his policies to create a cartoon that delves with issues.   I used to be an avid watcher of Prime Minister’s Questions when Tony Blair was PM.  The biting wit back and forth was priceless.  I would love to see VP Questions or even Secretary of State Questions done here.   

Even though I don’t know much about Brown, I do know one thing.  I always find it humorous whenever a politician essentially tries to rebrand themselves.  In the end, it typically is just window dressing.

    I just love the “removed earwax in attempt to be a better listener!” Haha! Thanks for making my day! Keep making your stuff!

  2. LOL. Very nice, I actually got it. The cartoon is, as always, great. Very nice post, funny and talented.

  3. You are funny. I do appreciate the wit 🙂

  4. Spot on, BM

    Sad reflection on our society that how well a politician comes across on camera is of more importance than what they believe or say

  5. Bearman,

    If that’s window dressing, then I still think the end product is well past its ‘sell by’ date.

    I’m not just talking about gordon McBroon here, but more about UK politics as a whole.


  6. HAHA! Funny HAHA for sure. I don’t find you strange at all.

  7. I like the cartoon – I just wish I knew more about this person. I’m sure I’ll learn more as time goes on…

  8. Neat blog you have here. Thanks for visiting LLOL

  9. hmmm…… that new tie is the same as his previous one

  10. I think they got the wrong person in this vid. Should have been Brown!

  11. We got a vice-president? Perot, right?

  12. I’m pretty sure Margaret Thatcher is the British PM, Bearman. Sheesh, way to embarrass yourself.

  13. I say old bean, ripping, wot! Ripping! Well played, bearman!

  14. i miss you, tony blair.

  15. Hahaha! Great one, Bearman. It’s great to see you lampooning a politico from the UK. And even without the captioning, I’d know straight away it was him. Brilliant!
