Anna of Lille, France, the author of the French blog Délit Maille (translated as "knitting offence" and pronounced as "Daily Mail") uses knitting to satirize French politicians, their policies and foibles. If you can read French, Délit Maille can be found here (and if you don't, the Google translation at least makes sense). The BBC has a slideshow of Anna's work with explanatory captions.
This is U.S. president Barack Obama and former French president Nicolas Sarkozy giving a television interview at the G20 summit in November 2011. Anna slyly poked fun at the height differential by putting Sarkozy's dangling feet on a footstool.
I now so want to render the whole Toronto Mayor Rob Ford saga in knitting.
