The Edwards scandal and Bill Clinton


This cartoon tries to combine two ongoing issue threads at the same time: the Edwards scandal in all of its blossoming glory, and Bill Clinton's petulant refusal to recognize that Barack Obama is qualified to be President, even though he repeated throughout the primaries that his wife was ready to take over from Day One.

In a quest for impact, I tried to boil the drawing down to its barest essential elements. All you need to "feel" Bill Clinton is those narrowed eyes, the light-bulb nose, and the authoritative (sometimes accusatory) finger pointed in your face. No point in cluttering it up with distractions like shoulders, shirt, background, or even a neck.

John Edwards...your a dick, literally.

What happens to politically powerful men that makes them stop thinking with the organ between their ears and only consider the one considerably to the south?

Edwards is a louse for sure but at least he did not sully the Oval Office and corrupt a whole generation of young people. Clinton still takes the cake for that.

Imagin what would have been on Monica's dress if Edwards had been VP while Clinton was president!!

I recently read a poll that asked if Americans wee overly consumed with the private lives of our politicians? As of 5 minutes ago the poll indicated we were. Americans have gotten so desensitized by immoral behavior by our Powers that be, we just done see or want to hear about it. I got news for you. Its a cliche' but it doesn't make it any less true, your elected officials are paid to look out for YOU..if they cant look out for their own families with the scandals they subject them too, I dont feel like paying them the high dollars they are getting..and I damn sure dont trust them to make public policy..
