Martin Rowson on Dubaya

As President Bush makes his valedictory visit to our shores Martin Rowson reflects on his victim, skewering him as effortless in words as he did in pictures.

As it is, taking the piss out of the way he looks (which he can’t, after all, do much about) was more than justified by the way he behaved, demonising and often seeking to criminalise all opposition in the name of “Freedom” while pursuing the violent export of free-market democracy (just tell ’em about it in Florida) and wallowing in a heady mixture of incompetence, incomprehension and mawkish militarism. And all of this heading up an administration which showed every sign of being run by the Corleone family, but where they’d picked Fredo as Godfather instead of Michael.
