The Bubba Gap

Nice. This common man critism/posing is a bit much isn't it?

I just did one where two men in hats are commenting on FDR giving a stump speech (a cane fisible in one hand).
Man 1: You voting for this guy?
Man 2: Heck no. He's an elitist. And he can't bowl.

This one's a bit of a yawn, but your caricature is quite good. Did you borrow the "bubba gap" term from somewhere else, or did you come up with it yourself?

By the way, Jim, I wanted to let you know that I used your Quayle Stickman swearing-in cartoon as reference material in drawing something of my own. Thank you for being such an inspiration.

Another great 'toon. I love Obama's eye roll.

Obama-lama-ding-dong will never be able to relate to the common American, which I consider myself to be. He can pose and preen all he wants, but he's a liberal-elitist nut job.

I'm bothered that politicians are using education as a wedge issue.

What's wrong with getting a good education, working hard and getting a good job, because of it? I thought that was the American Dream?

When W got elected and said he hated DC because he wanted to get back to where "real Americans" live. Being a citizen, paying taxes, voting, that's not enough to be a real American? Now you have to live in some mythical "heartland" town.

This is exactly why so many people like Obama, because he refuses to pander just because people think he should do something like wear a lapel pin.

"Liberal-elitist nut job"?

Liberal: Darn straight! Haven't had a genuine one of those in the White House since JFK; 'bout time for some real idealism!

Elitist: Riiight, that so applies to the son of a goat herder, raised by a single mother . . . oh, wait . . .

Nut Job: ???

If this is all they have, we might as well the swearing in ceremony over and done with . . .

Asking as real question so if it comes off as nasty or leaning one way or another it is not what I am trying to do.

Does anyone really think that whether it would be Obama, Clinton, or Chaney anything would change? I am a Republican that voted for Democrates to take congress the last time around, nothing is any better. I really think this time I am voting for Naber just because I am so disinfrancized(spelling sorry) with both "parties" that I don't feel there is any hope. I come here to this blog and post every once in awhile and I keep hearing, seeing that well Bush is horable, Clinton s*cks, ect ect. My dream is that finally something gets done. Nothing ever will. To Republicans as well as Democrates I have one question why vote your way. Just give me the top 3 with no BS, and please give me reason other than "Change" because no one every stated what the "Change" is going to be. Please don't use the John Wayne red blooded American speach because that time in our history is gone.

I think it's high time we had someone in the White House with an IQ over 100. George "C Student" Bush's 8 years have nearly destroyed our country.
