Ugh. This is truly exhausting. PA, WV, and KY represent momentum? Only if they’ve added another 35 states (and they’d have to be in the rust belt) while I wasn’t looking. Maybe after 85 states vote she’ll pull ahead. She’s won some, but not as many as him. That’s the definition of losing. Would we play a baseball game for days and days as long as the losing team scored a few runs every inning? Clinton’s team would say “Yes! and furthermore, the runs scored in the first five innings shouldn’t count, while the runs scored in the seventh inning were scored with the wind blowing harder so they should count double!” Nonsense. Do you really think Barrack is the choice of the “King Makers” at the DNC? Clinton was and in many ways still is the pick of the “back room boys”. These incredibly tortured reasons that continue to evolve in an attempt to give Clinton the nomination are proof. Obama is the outsider who has the annoying habit of winning more votes. If the Clinton campaign is a sign of the Clinton presidency we are all in store for a very Bush-like 4 years where the administration won’t let facts get in the way of a predertimined narrative.

Rfk was the cover story in this month’s Vanity Fair, perhaps Hillary read it too and had his campaign on her mind. Like RFK, she too is behind but gaining momentum (Pennslyvania, W. Virginia, Kentucky)and is being asked to drop out by the “Back room” boys who rule the Democratic Party (This time it’s Dean etc). The King makers decide, not you and me, especially in the Democratic Party. Dean was the front runner after Iowa, but saw his dreams dashed because he was not part of the ‘inside beltway’ boy group. Now that he’s been given the consolation prize of Head of the Democratic Party, he’s a tyrant. Delegate, if you want the Party behind you next election, do what we tell you. Problem: Wright, Rezko, Auchie, Michelle’s mouth. Dean did not do his homework. He assumed Obama had no ‘baggage’. Damn, how’d that boy get so many bad acquaintances so fast?

As the best political/cultural, not-exactly cartoonist (more original than that) to come along in a whole, whole long time, possibly since Daumier (which is saying something), this one isn’t up to par. Very well made—as always, but lacking usual ironic punch such that it appears in bad taste. Line is fine.
Should have round-filed it, or kept it in portfolio for another time, or for history. I know, I know, everyone’s a critic.
