I watched last night's "debate" with horror. As you probably know by now, nearly the entire first hour was taken up by bullshit questions about lapel pins, bitterness, Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers nonsense. But they did manage to carve out a minute from their televised circus to discuss gas prices for sixty seconds. I would have rather listened to a real discussion on the horrible treatment of vets, the economic crisis, China's human rights record, trade deals, h1B visas, renewable energy, the tap on my phone, the plummeting dollar and a solution to health care just to name a few.

Anyway, I didn't know which strip to choose, so I am publishing them all. You get to decide which is best.

Say what you will about Charlie Gibson, but at least George Stephanopoulos didn't have a horse in the race ... what's that ma? Oh. Never mind what I said about George.

Storm Bear, you are always so spot on with your strips. If only the political pundits who are paid millions of dollars a year could cut through the spin in the same way.

I like the first one the best. It's funny because it's exactly what she was complaining about two months ago.

But it doesn't matter. I've been calling Charlie and George Tweedle-dee and Tweedle-dum for years now for a reason - they think the best way to discuss politics is as if everyone they're speaking to has the intelligence of a... ABC journalist?

I like #2 the best. It's a good idea. :)
