I drew this cartoon a few weeks ago, when Sarah Palin re-entered the media orbit with her publicity tour. However, I was only able to publish it now, as contractually, I am supposed to show all my cartoons to The New Yorker before I publish them elsewhere and the magazine was off last week (they didn’t want this one, sadly).
So…I think this cartoon is still relevant. Palin hasn’t announced she is running for president, but she’s showing up in all kinds of places, grabbing the spotlight. The media follows her like an obedient dog. How far can she take her mavricky behavior?
Maybe she will show up in your bedroom, who knows? Is that better or worse than your spouse surprising you and your lover?
It would be far worse, especially if your lover were a moose.
Because then she would shoot it.
