Flint Boy's Cartoon Of Rick Snyder Goes Viral

And it should.

As a frequent photoshopper, I do a lot of graphics that try to tell a story. Sometimes the simplest graphic says the most. Deadline Detroit notes that

...a simple cartoon of Gov. Rick Snyder and the water crisis by Ian MacIntyre, 10, of Flint, is going viral after it was posted on Twitter by Flint area activist Nayyirah Shariff. It shows a faceless stick figure with a huge quote balloon featuring a single word repeated a dozen times: “Lie.”

Iain, his mother Laura, a University of Michigan-Flint lecturer, and brother Broghan headed to Washington for the [Flint water] hearing on on Thursday.

Bravo. That little drawing is a lifetime keeper, Ian. We'll be using it over and over again here at Crooks and Liars, and we thank you.
