I really like this cartoon. I was so into it while drawing it. i sent it to press and left the building and then a news event happens that’ll totally blow this story out of the news.
There’s always Democrats messing up too, but they’re not usually out there sermonizing about family values while getting their thingies caught in the cookie jar. This douchebag was in Congress during the Clinton impeachment and guess which way he voted.
Here’s the rough which I tried to emulate as possible for the final version.
On to other things: Michael Jackson died. I’ve heard so many analogies and jokes that my head might burst. One that sticks with me is "God must love Mark Sanford to have Farrah and MJ die on the same day to take him off the news". This will also scoot aside Iran and Kim Jong Ill will have to shoot a rocket into downtown Honolulu to get any attention this week.
I was twittering yesterday (I’m clay335) and posted ‘who’ll be the third celebrity to die this week?" and two hours later Michael Jackson was dead. That was weird.
