Chan Lowe: Cain's and Perry's memory problem


You have to be a little tetched in the head to even want to be president in the first place. Either that, or have an ego the size of Wyoming. Maybe that kind of self-confidence and hubris is inherited; it originates as some minute kink in a man’s double-helix that matches up with a mutant carbon molecule in a woman’s and⎯voila!⎯a person is created who can actually imagine himself not only with his finger on the nuclear button that will end the world, but who even believes he knows when and when not to press it.

When you think of it that way, the characters who have presented themselves as the great Republican hope for 2012 create an even deeper appreciation of the political truth that Candidate Obama has always been blessed in his opponents.

On another matter, a shout out the students and faculty of Pinecrest School in Fort Lauderdale, who received me so graciously yesterday when I delivered a lecture to them about my work. I hope I inspired at least one of them to pursue a career in cartooning. If so, he or she won’t regret it.

The sad part about your cartoon is that everyone of the Republican candidates except for Santorium would do a better job than President Obama. He was again voted present when it came time to decide on the new pipeline.Add North Korea , Iran , Syria , the world leaders laughing at the USA , Solyandra , Fast and Furious , a trillion dollar stimulus to pay back his union backers that created no jobs and he has earned to right to be a one term president .

Chan- Witnessing the debates is like watching two drunks argue over a bar bill on the Titanic....

Man Banger.... (take that either way)... Did you copy and paste that talkingpoint memo?

Ha! Banger, you are just priceless. Keep drinking that cool-aid.

" I did not have sexual relations with that woman"

One day not long ago, I happened to see a TV set turned to Fox News; the sound wasn't on, but the banner headline was "POLL: OBAMA FAILS THREE KEY TESTS FOR RE-ELECTION". All well and good, but he may end up *passing* the most important one: next to who he'll be running against, he may come across more like FDR than Jimmy Carter.

Dearest "Zalmo"

The difference with Bill Clinton is the word 'CONSENSUAL'.

These women were harassed and / or sexually assaulted.

No just a taxpayer who pays his bills and has an F-15 pilot son and a daughter along with 5 grand children , who is worried about their future .
