North Korean Election by jjmccullough North Korean Election by jjmccullough
Here's another editorial cartoon from my site that is a bit more "artsy" than most.

I drew this in response to the North Korean election, in which Kim Jong Il won 100% of the vote (surprise)

Lol! Excellent. It may old but sadly it's not old news. Just replace Il by Un.

He's not a world leader, he's a man child with a country

I find Kim and his political views a disgrace to Korea and its people.

Too bad he can't actually hold elections for himself, because his dad is still technically still in charge as the Eternal leader. LOLS

Shit's fucked up yo.

He is technically the Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army and Chairman of the National Defense Commission, a position with great power and does not require elections, and, of course, he's General Secretary of the Workers Party of Korea, so he runs the whole show.

Yes, Kim Il-sung is technically the President even though he's dead, but as you said, he's the Eternal President.

There is a de facto head of state, and his name is Kim Yong-nam (no relation to Kim Jong-il, and the name Kim is very common among Koreans around the world), the Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly. In theory, he, Kim Yong-il (as mentioned before, the name Kim is very common among Koreans), the Premier of DPRK and Kim Jong-il each hold one-third of all executive power, but in practice Kim Jong-il holds all power.

Yeah Kim is like the biggest used last name among Koreans. My boyfriend's last name is Kim. Park, Lee and Cho are others.

I must also point out that the ancestors of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il had their origins from what is now South Korea and settled in the north where many to this day still live.

Even if they did have another, if anyone voted for the other candidate, they'd probably be shot or taken to a concentration camp.

Most likely to be.

Imagine if we were in Soviet, we are in its election, the candidates who were in the election would be checked by the Communist Party, and we usually have ONE candidate only, and we wouldn't got the choice to against him/her, thus, votes mean fors.

most of the Communist Party in strong nations don't allow democracy, such as China, Soviet, and also N.Korea.

I hate this FAKE democracy, we need real democracy.

I particularly like the sign with him kissing a baby. Just think, if more dicatators had signs like this, maybe they'd be more popular.
