There is a terrible truth in any victory, but this was far from being a hollow one. It’s not the job of the satirist to be charitable, more to distort a situation into something digestible and realistic. A cartoon feels the suffering of its subject matter even when that subject has been exposed as something of a hoaxer or had the impudence to make a misjudgment on a catastrophic scale, which is much the same thing.
