Campaign Gone Wild

This is one of those cartoons that just happened, seemingly came out of nowhere. Sometimes ideas come from crafting words, others just from drawing, and that’s what happened here. While doodling, I was thinking about the Romney people and the lengths they are going lately to win the nomination for Mitt ….and voila.

I don’t know if women like Mitt– I guess some do. I wonder (not really) how he would be on a date.  Then my mind quickly darts to all the other candidates and veers safely back to Obama. Now he’s someone I would go on a date with, no surprise. I guess that means I’ll vote for him, because as a woman, that’s my criteria.

My favorite part of last week’s campaign shenanigans was when Mitt said “I don’t care about the very poor, they have a safety net,” and then proceeded to be seen on national TV with The Donald.  His Hairesty endorsed Mitt– maybe they will share hair grooming tips while they talk about their money and how to keep the poor safe.

What’s in store this week? More talk about how America is “in decline,” “on the wrong track,”  “in danger?”   What with the good economic news on Friday, we can expect to see some even more outrageous statements, activities, maneuvers.  Oh boy, this is only good news for humorists.

    Do more of that doodling! I love it when you get wacky and “out there”. Methinks you’re getting quite “forward” in your politics, Liza.

    • Thanks, Rob! My work is political for this venue (an and other sites), but quite mixed for The New Yorker….I give them lots of stuff to choose from. Here is where I can be a little more wacky, as you say.
