Today's Cartoon: Ariel Sharon Hospitalized

I think it was a very wise decision that they immediately handed power over to Deputy Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert; because you never know who may try to take advantage of Sharon's current condition.

Somebody could sneak into his hospital room, put a pen in his hand and then force the comatosed Prime Minister to sign absolutely anything; from an authorization to reclaim the Gaza Strip to launching a full scale assault against Iran. ...And don't tell me that Benjamin Netanyahu didn't give it any thought :)

Thanks Stuart, I'm glad you liked it.

Yeah, it's pretty tricky when you are dealing with such a serious and delicate issue like this. I think the "key" is to not necessarily focus on the actual issue, directly; but rather address it through a "related" 3rd party. This works as a "safe zone" while at the same time adding another "level" of humour to the cartoon... if done successfully ;)

I think it also helps when your intentions are NOT to be disrespectful in the first place :)
