Newt and Mitt in Tight Pants

As we approach the Superbowl, I thought I would share a few of my football cartoons.  I actually think everyone is  more than ready to watch a game that is about physical force and athletic skill and not about slippery, mean, manipulative, emotional force  of the kind we’ve been seeing in the GOP race.  I know there is meanness in football, and like politics, it has money as a motivating force. But isn’t it good to take an evening and eat a lot of high-calorie foods, hang with friends and yell at a television, while men in tight pants pound each other over an odd shaped ball? That’s the American way.

At least we don’t have to see Newt and Mitt in tight pants. At least not yet.

  1. You know, I think you’re right. I’m certainly glad we don’t have to see Mitt and Newt in tight pants! I think that might be disturbing. Sadly, I think more Americans might listen that way! If only as many people cared about politics as cared about sports!

    • You are so right, and it’s something I should have addressed in my post. Most Americans really don’t care about politics, do they? They would rather watch sports….ah well. Thanks for your comment!

    Might be quite revealing though. It might show they’ve got no balls after all, not even odd shaped…

    Here’s the perfect Superbowl halftime show: a gigantic mechanical foot kicks each GOP candidate over the goalposts from midfield. We’d all score on that one! Pass me the popcorn.
