A couple of new cartoons

Howard Dean, Hillary Clinton
Peter Dawkins, Millicent Fenwick, Frank Lautenberg, Douglas Forrester, Chuck Haytaian
Hello everybody! Sorry about the lack of posts. With the primary going on, and new stuff at work, I haven't had the time to update it.

One thing that's going to happen in the next couple weeks is I'll be migrating this blog over to the Politicker's national site, where I'll continue to post my cartoons, as well as sketches, materials, and my commentary on other cartoons and fun stuff going on in politics. It should be a blast.

Stay tuned.

Estabrook: Uhhh....Duh Duh Duh?

Anne Estabrook
, candidate for the GOP nomination of the U.S. Senate seat to run against Frank Lautenberg, evokes Ronald Reagan here as she can't seem to figure out what her position on gun control is.

Good thing they didn't ask her about Iraq.

Hillary Clinton: Crisis Manager

Hillary Clinton is back to her old tricks, pulling out the red phone straight from the Walter Mondale campaign and attempting to scare people to vote for her:

Good thing she's running against a candidate that can think on his feet, and respond to these things swiftly:

Here's the sketch:

Bill Clinton on Hope and 2004

Just found this great video, and I thought I'd share. It's Bill Clinton in October 2004 speaking on behalf of John Kerry on the politics of fear vs the politics of hope.

Sorry I was slow to post this, but it's been a busy last couple of days. But on Friday, I posted a cartoon over on about the rumors swirling about Governor Jim Gibbons' possible divorce of his wife. They are holding a family meeting in the governor's mansion this instant, and we'll see what the outcome is tomorrow.

The Las Vegas Gleaner had this to say:
"(If) the nation's scurviest governor is willing to consider the possibility that sometimes there comes a point where it is better to end a marriage rather than cling steadfastly to a commitment for commitment's sake, perhaps he might also be persuaded to rethink his "no new taxes" pledge."
