The “Sight Gag” is our weekly nod to the ironic and carnivalesque in a vibrant democratic public culture. We typically will not comment beyond offering an identifying label, leaving the images to “speak” for themselves as much as possible. Of course, we invite you to comment … and to send us images that you think capture the carnival of contemporary democratic public culture.
While I like a lot of “Mr. Fish” work, this one has the wrong title. It should be “The People’s G.W. Bush Presiential Portrait.” It couldn’t be the official one; Bush remains unreflective and unapoligetic.
