The Karen Lewis-Arne Duncan Feud in Cartoon Form

By Chuck Sudo in News on Nov 18, 2011 4:45PM

2011_11_duncan_lewis_parody.jpg It's been a bad week for Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis, what between the video of her mocking Education Secretary Arne Duncan and her defiant news conference where she said she would not resign because of it.

Now comes this cartoon from Chicago Current's Geoff Dougherty in which the Lewis looks, well, darker and thinner than in real life. The Lewis in the cartoon also says she teaches public speaking; Lewis is actually a chemistry teacher.

The Duncan in the cartoon is also a far cry from the real thing. Still, it gave us a bit of a chuckle.
