LOTR Inspires Political Humor – Montreal Gazette

“Coming this fall!”
“When has art reached cultural significance?” you ask. Well, perhaps one barometer is political. Just as the USA’s Strategic Defense Initiative of the 1980s had been dubbed “Star Wars”, so perhaps in the future we’ll see things like “The Vial of Galadriel” for new surveillance program, or President Bush’s plans for a defense system dubbed “Mithril”… but for now, here’s a cartoon by one of Canada’s “nastiest” (according to his website) cartoonists, Aislin.

Thanks to Don B. for the tip!
