There should have been a subtitle at the bottom of the drawing saying “With apologies to John Tenniel”
Tweedledumb and Tweedledumber…
I guess the Town Crier is going to miss the Cantor smirk even more than I will.
The Republicans in congress are doing their job very well. If they can’t accomplish anything that Obama won’t veto, then they can stall so that the Democrats can’t accomplish anything either. Their intention is to keep everything just as it is, unless they can manage to return to the “good old days” of the 19th century, before there was a middle class and when only the landed gentry were voters. And, they have a great strategy for accomplishing this. 1. Disenfranchise everyone you possibly can, unless they are dependable Republican voters.2. Produce ads and media emphasis which emphasizes those politicians who are corrupt and incompetent. Paint all Democrats with the same slime. Lacking sufficient actual slime, simply make some up. This undermines the people’s trust in their government and makes them feel like helpless pawns, so they tune out the whole process and accept the status quo. 3. Support the “job creators”, who are the recipients of a huge portion of the GNP, although that GNP was produced by working people, who are receiving less benefit from it every day. This gives them the money to accomplish the other two goals, and leaves everyone except the “job creators” with increasingly less money to mount a counter campaign. So, this is the way we are going lose the middle class and become a country inhabited only by the very rich 1%, and a 99% who are too busy working two jobs to survive to notice.
drones…the lot of you.
I’m a little embarrassed for the cartoonist’s political ignorance.
Yea, but the Right doesn’t get their panties in a twist over dissing of the TEA Party like the Democrats get when called Leftists, Socialists, Progressives, Communists, or the like.Why is that? Could it be that the Democrats really aren’t comfortable with their own “skin?”
Even with his satire, Lewis Carroll couldn’t dream up as weird a consequence as the TEA party, “sovereigns”, or the current disaster the GOP has become.
Give us back a few Mark Hatfields, with courage, conviction, and duty to serve America, and they might get back on track.
Hi martens, how are you? I thought you might be interested, my wife defended on Tuesday. All went well. But the job market is just terrible, so we are just hoping that something will come through.
