That's from September 16, 2007, "Baby War Hawks Dominate Horse Race." That's weird because I thought the next comic would be the one that did the pay off for all the comics of Bush in the wedding dress.
Just goes to show you how even if you draw the comics, you won't necessarily remember them in the right order.
But this is good because last month I had an e-mail whining that if Hillary were in the White House, I wouldn't be knocking her. I'd be praising her.
The whole point of the comic is in the title: The World Today Just Nuts.
As a political cartoonist, it's my job to make fun of the powerful. Were Hillary the president, I'd be making fun of her as well.
