What Does a Huntsman Surge Looks Like?

If I were a Republican, I would find Mr. Huntsman very attractive. It’s not news that he’s classically handsome, and if I were a Republican, I would find it difficult not to gravitate towards him. If only for his looks. What else is there to go on? Why not make a choice based on looks? Heck, at this stage of the game, they are all not telling the truth anyway.

The lukewarm attitude towards Mitt reminds me of a cartoon of mine that The New Yorker published in 1983. You can just insert Mitt Romney’s name in the fortune cookie caption.  It’s about the Democratic Presidential nominee Walter Mondale, and the cartoon reflects the tepid feelings towards Fritz by the Democratic party. I don’t recall there being such a circus back then as we have now, however. Also, parenthetically, this cartoon was my second sale to The New Yorker, and my first political cartoon for them.

  1. Hi Liza,

    I am a Japanese female, 31 year old, living in Kyoto, Japan.
    I watched your TED talk which filmed in December 2010,
    and very impressed by your talks about how humor can make an impact and change the world.
    I started cartooning and now post them to my blog daily.
    Hope you check my blog below and enjoy it somehow…(although it is in Japanese)


    If you think I can help your activities in any way, please let me know.
    I’m more than happy to be a part of it.

    It looks as though everyone will now get their “15 Minutes of Surge” (sorry, Andy)
    — not that it helped much in Santorum’s case. (TG.)

    I’m fully expecting to wake-up some morning, to find that I have likewise surged.
    And I’m not even a Republican. Nor am I classically handsome.
