Kuckold At The Kremilin!

I had a few hours to deadline, and no idea what I was going to do for this week’s cartoon. My first thought was something about Silvio Berlusconi keeping his job by one vote. Italy is known as “the boot of Europe.” So I thought I’d make a joke like: The boot, doesn’t give the heel the boot.
Yuk, yuk, yuk. But that was weak.

Not five minutes later I came across an article about Putin’s hottie mistress. Well, I must thank those cheatin’ world leaders for this week’s cartoon.

Don’t you just love the part about Putin puttin’ all those pussycats in Parliament? Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin Cuties turn the Russian Parliament into A Russian Harem.

Bad Vlad. Very Bad.
There will be coal in your stocking.

The Economic Meltdown:
Perpetrators Still Perpetrating!

This cartoon leapt out of my head at the NY Press Association shin-dig this week. The guest speaker was Tom DiNapoli, NY State comptroller. He was spinning our economic woes on the softener cycle when he said: “remember, we recovered from 9/11 and we’ll recover from this.” I got instantly so majorly pissed off that when the Q&A happened I wish I had had the nerve to ask DiNapoli if there wasn’t a very stark difference between the near destruction of our economy and 9/11. And maybe it would be a good idea, since Obama has the perpetrators of the meltdown at the wheel, maybe he should ask Osama Bin Laden to join the crew. Hey, why not! He’d fit right in.

But then, the Q&A coincided with dessert and not only did I lose my nerve, but there was a big fat brownie lodged in my mouth.

Is Congressman Tim Bishop On Drugs?

So, here’s this week’s cartoon. Where is Joe Wilson (you lie!) when we need him? The fatuous Tim Bishop could use a Joe Wilson treatment right about now. Anyway, one good thing – maybe the only good thing – is that he has a charming and hilarious Deputy Cheif of Staff named Jon Schneider. I hope HE runs for Congress in November. I certainly won’t be voting for Bishop. But I’d vote for Jon in a heartbeat. He responded to my post about Tim Bishop’s website going positively paleolithic by not having any option for a woman to sign on as Ms, offering her only Mrs & Miss – hello 1962. That post  with a screenshot is here:

Jon Schneider’s very funny response:

Dear Ms. Fredericks,

Miss-take fixed. Just wanted to shoot you a line to let you know that we appreciate you flagging the “Miss-take” on our website comment form… and while I don’t know how this “Mrs-tery” occurred it has been fixed and “Ms” is now an available option when one leaves a comment.  I appreciate you indulging my need for morning puns and again, apologize for any “Ms-ery” this may have caused.  OK, that was the last one.

Best,
Jon

Just the text from the cartoon: (hello search engines!)

Tim Bishop’s Congressional insurance offers 10 plans his family can choose from. He’s fully vested for lifetime benefits after five years.And we, the taxpayers, pick up his tab.
Bishop said he voted for thisHealth Care Bill because it will give Americans the same kind of options he enjoys as a Member of Congress.
Does he think we’re stupid enough to believe that? Is Tim Bishop on drugs?
If he is, I’m sure they’re fully covered by his fabulous Congressional plan.

I’ll Buy My Own Damn Politicians, Thank You.

It seems so simple to me. We should pay for campaigns with our tax dollars. It would be the best money we ever spent. It would buy us politicians who understood exactly who was putting them into office, removing them from office. paying for their handsome salaries, and their “Cadillac” lifetime, as in – forever – health plans. Part of the deal in getting an FCC license should be that during elections every candidate gets equal time for free and for equal amounts of time. A bare set. No makeup artist. No hairdresser. And that means you, John Edwards.
