I did this a few days ago when I began to see Mr. Santorum on television with more frequency than I would have liked. My discovery of his proclivity to wearing sweater vests coincided with twitter’s notice of it, as well. His choice is quite bizzarre, frankly, because I don’t think it makes him look normal at all. Maybe he’s not going for “normal” or “regular guy;” perhaps he’s just chilly. I think it makes him look funny, and that’s my bread and butter. The more I hear about Santorum, the more frightened I get. And when I’m frightened, I turn to humor (not to singing about my favorite things).
Last week, as I watched (and continue to watch) the GOP flail around, I created a string of political cartoons to show you in the upcoming week. Stay tuned!
BTW, below is another vest cartoon I did for The New Yorker years ago:
