Sight Gag is our weekly nod to the ironic, satiric, parodic, and carnivalesque performances that are an important part of a vibrant democratic public culture.  These “gags” may not always be funny or represent a familiar point of view, but they attempt to cut through the lies, hypocrisy, shamelessness, stupidity, complacency, and other vices of democratic life.  Of course, we invite you to comment … and to send us images that you think might deserve a laugh or at least a wry and rueful look by those who are thinking about the character of public life today.

  1. 1)’more than one way to put out a fire’ reminded me how gulliver puts out a fire in the lilliputian palace by making water on it – for which he is accused of treason

    2)stretching the analogy a bit, ‘leakers’ like manning and snowden are trying to put out the ‘fires of fascism’ – and face the same accusations

    may the creative forces of the universe, if any, stand beside us and guide us through the night with the light from above, metaphorically speaking
