Drawing on Barry Bonds
“Drawing on” works like this: Three I-Report cartoonists offer their unique look at one politically charged subject, and you decide which one hits closest to the mark. This week, our cartoonists take us out to the ballgame by drawing on Major League Baseball’s most controversial figure: Barry Bonds. The San Francisco Giants slugger is closing in on Hank Aaron’s all-time homerun record. Bonds is also a key figure in the BALCO scandal. A number of journalists have alleged that Bonds has used performance-enhancing substances. Bonds denies those claims, and has not been charged with any crime in connection with steroids or the BALCO incident. (Check out the earlier rounds here: "300" , U.S. attorneys, Gas prices, Walter Reed, Academy Awards, Iran and Iraq, Anna Nicole Smith.)

Scroll down to see them all, then let us know which one you like best -- and why -- by posting a comment. Better yet, send your own cartoon response.

OK, now we want to hear from you. Tell us which cartoon is best by sending a comment, or better yet, pick up your pen and draw your own take on this week's topic.
I feel cartoon #1 says it best. Hank Aaron is a true sports legend. There is absolutly no way that you can put Barry Bonds in the same catagory as Hank Aaron. Bonds obviously needed the drugs to help him achieve success while Aaron achieved his notoriety thru hard work and natural ability. In my opinion Barry Bonds and the image he presents is very harmful to MLB.
very clever... haha good job
I've been following the CNN Warp cartoons for a while now, and I think this week marks a first - all are in agreement!

We may disagree on Iraq, healthcare, the economy, and the US Attorney firings, but we are all in agreement that Bonds is a fake.

One aside - I do like Doyle's nod to Hank Aaron, a true baseball legend.
Hammerin' Hank is a true hero. We could use a few more like him today... or maybe there *are* people like him, but the media attention only goes to steroid-zilla mutants
#1 all the way.
Number 1 (Heroes) is by far the best one. No doubt.
Joe,

I would also add the shocking disparity in lives between Bonds and Aaron. One had to fight his way into baseball and deal with bigotry both from the fans and his teammates, the other had a successful father in the game and an easy road to the game.

I don't begrudge Bonds an easier life but it will keep me from having any sympathy for him when the excuses start flying.

Good job everyone.
Barry Bonds is all about Barry Bonds. His teammates don't like him, I don't like him, he's not a team player and he's a cheater. MLB may not have had rules against steroid use but the law does. His stats should be erased.
Three very good cartoons, but I must say that #3 really captures it...the unrepentant attitude of Bonds as he leans on (literally and figuratively) the steroid hypo, with the asterisk either following him or glued to his back...an image that really has a lot to say, with very little verbage...great impact! Bravo!
Liked them all, but the 'Hammerin' Hank' with the reference to the 'dad influence' said it best. Had the pleasure of being a baseball fan before Aaron was a rookie and watching him and others play the game, not pimp the game.
Take2 is the best. Barry Bonds was playing the game as it was being played. He ignored the rules that the authorities weren't using that day.
I like Take 2 - it represents (to me) how the younger generation thinks!!
Hank Aaron fought hard to open a door that Barry Bonds is not only taking for granted but is making a mockery of. Hank Aaron is the true hero and Bonds in my opinion is the true zero.
