By means of the simple mechanism of the return of his political theme, the metacartoonist deftly conceals the introduction of a new thrust in minimalist cartooning -- instead of a fixed aspect, his characters now have the flexibility to change expression as needed. The great question is at which point this ceases to be minimalist.

The script used to make this toon:
<cartoon height="300" width="500" rowformat="2">
  <character name="al" aspect="2" rel-h="50" rel-w="100"/>
  <caption location="bottom middle" fgcolor="blue">Shh, here he comes now.</caption>
  <character name="dubya" aspect="2" rel-h="50" rel-w="100"/>
  <caption location="bottom left" fgcolor="blue">I won the popular vote, Dubya.</caption>
  <character name="al"/>
  <character name="dubya" aspect="1"/>
  <caption location="bottom right" fgcolor="red">Yeah, well Florida's mine, bub!</caption>
  <character name="al" aspect="1"/>
  <caption location="bottom left" fgcolor="blue">Hilarious, isn't it?</caption>
  <character name="dubya" aspect="3"/>
  <caption location="top right" fgcolor="red">Make it stop.</caption>
