    This cartoon forgot a former Attorney General in the Bush administration, Jack Abramoff of K Street fame. Didn’t Scooter Libby use that tactic too?

    • The have amnesia when it comes to Bush.

    • tobyspeeks

      Not to mention littler Bush and all the other fraudsters involved in the S&L scandal of the 80s. Funny how our banks crashed on both Senior and Jr’s. watch.

      Are you sure Abramoff was an AG? Not that the requirements are very demanding: John Mitchell, Ed Meese, John Ashcroft, Alberto Gonsalez were apparently good enough. I almost included Eric Holder (and maybe I should have; apparently the Wall Street crooks love him).

    And now…. The REAL Cartoon Of The Day!

    Have a nice day!

    “The worst thing that can happen to a good cause is, not to be skillfully attacked, but to be ineptly defended.” ― Frédéric Bastiat

    • Sand_Cat

      As always, the REAL caricature of the ignorant, racist, and just generally nasty is YOU.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Kitty… as usual… The hallmark of a low IQ idiot like you is to throw out the race card because it’s all you know. Answer this question:

        Who would I voter for, a black conservative (say Alan West) or a white progressive?

        I’m waiting……

        Have a nice day!

        “I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.” – Booker T. Washington

          Watch it. Swinging on Booker T’s nuts can be hazardous. He just might flip you up and put the screw to you. Booker T. loved him some white women, and they loved him. . . Wait, is that why you’re swinging on his— Oooo, Bozo’s a bad girl! You steamy little hot to trot! Mucho caliente!

    • WhutHeSaid

      Well, at least you could take care to get your cartoons anatomically correct: The Tea Party would actually be hanging out of Fido’s anus. Be a good little bigot and pay more attention next time.

      • ObozoMustGo

        What’s up whut, you racist pig?

    • Allan Richardson

      As always, the point is not to discuss the issue, but to obscure it with another unrelated issue. Nobody on the right complained about “big government” when the Patriot Act was passed, or when states began to mandate ultrasounds against doctors’ advice, or when states tried to forbid pediatricians from asking parents whether there were gun in the house.

  • Mark Forsyth

    When Elizabeth Warren grilled Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on To Big To Fail it seemed like the only thing missing was the music.Wow! That boy sure can dance,can’t he?

  • Sand_Cat

    Hey! The cartoonist forgot elected officials!
    On second thought, maybe he didn’t. He did add the serpent, after all.

  • Robert P. Robertson

    Or when Saint Reagan constantly said, “I forgot.” “Uh, I don’t remember.” “I can’t recall.” What about this one: “I am not a crook.” Or the greatest one of all: “Define what “is” is?”

  • Allan Richardson

    Just curious: why are member-elected, volunteer leaders of labor organizations who often spend their OWN money as well as time off the clock on their cause, referred to as UNION BOSSES, while the board members of large corporations, part of a web of overlapping stock ownership and board membership, and the CEO type those boards elect from among their own circle, called JOB CREATORS and not CORPORATE BOSSES? Which one really “bosses” others around?
