CFN – Singers have their one special hit; authors their books, but legendary Canadian political cartoonist Terry Mosher, better known as Aislin, has hit a new high note in his long and historic career with his new cartoon depicting the Quebec Premier spoofing the Miley Cyrus song Wrecking Ball!
The long time Montreal Gazette writer responded to my query earlier this afternoon before his trip to Toronto.
I hadn’t actually seen the Miley Cyrus video until watching the CBC news with Wendy Mesley last night. With the yellow hair, I immediately mentioned to my wife that it could be Pauline Marois on a wrecking ball – with a few extra pounds. of course.. But surely someone has already done that, I thought?
However, after checking a number of websites, I realized that the idea was my own. I drew the cartoon immediately last night in order that The Gazette could get it up on its site ASAP this morning. I knew I had something special as I was drawing it.
It wasn’t the first time that Mr. Mosher has spoofed the Quebec Premier….and probably won’t be the last. His work can be seen in the Montreal Gazette and other fine periodicals.
And now for your viewing pleasure, Wrecking Ball!
