Even cartoonists need a vacation now and then.
I thought that while I was away from the blog, it might be edifying to post a few cartoons from a parallel period in our history, specifically, the end of President Bush’s first one-hundred days eight years ago.
One can almost forget that this occurred during the brief period (eight months) between his inauguration and the 9/11 tragedy, which subsequently defined his tenure in the White House.
At this point, people were beginning to question Bush’s competence, and whether his administration actually stood for anything.
The bitterness of the 2000 election loss was still fresh in the minds of the losing side.
