    >a Democratic chief executive and Democratic Party majority in both bodies of congress. Scary stuff.>

    Yes, that's the way laws of all sorts (including spending and budgeting guidelines) get passed willy nilly.

    Obama 60,000. Palin 3,500. McCain 1,000. Those are the crowd numbers at recent rallies held by the candidates. Obama and Palin both appeared yesterday in Columbus, Ohio, but in different locations. McCain held his rally this morning in Tampa, Florida. Even Fox “News” had a difficult time talking about the small McCain crowd.

    I didn't watch the prime-time ad. Hell, I don't even know what prime-time is. Still, Obama has a lot more money than McCain. Seems logical to spend it on whatever will help his campaign.

    This is topical and relatively sharp (I think the punchline could've been delivered better, from an artistic standpoint,) but it seems like a skewed interpretation of Obama's comments. Campaign donation is very different from commerce, economically speaking. I think a more accurate retort on Obama's part would've been, "Taxpayers worked hard for that money and gave it to me because they chose support my candidacy."
    Why do political cartoons always seem to beat the joke into the ground before the last panel?

    It's pretty funny. I also agree that the punch line could have been better. In fact, I don't even think it needed the punch line.

    It's good turnabout, but Obama doesn't react like that in the press. It would've come off better if they'd portrayed him as whiny/pouty. Or, like xvart said, cut it at the second frame.
