Bush: "Leave me alone, people! I have to talk to God again!"

Sueddeutsche Zeitung, Oct. 30, 2006
Last time we presented examples of irresistibly funny Sueddeutsche Zeitung cartoons, we commented:
Sueddeutsche Zeitung: Anti-American Hate, But No Humor
These two cartoons from Sueddeutsche Zeitung go a long way toward explaining the different mindsets of German and American left-wing media.
In a nutshell: the German media's reporting on American affairs lack humor and finesse. Their disregard of the Bush administration is blunt, brutal, unsophisticated to the extreme. While I don't appreciate the attacks of American left wing media on the Bush administration the least you can say is that they try to exhibit a certain kind of intellectual style, a tiniest bit of objectivity and - in cartoons - they make their point in a sharp and funny way.
I guess, in the wake of the U.S. November elections Sueddeutsche felt the need to reminds us of the truthfullness of this statement in a particularly shameful way.
Sueddeutsche Zeitung: the very definition of German media trash.
