I’ve avoided doing comics about politics and news because it’s just too easy to do something like this, and there are several other outlets that can do it far better than I can. This has been said so many times already by places like The Daily Show or Real Time With Bill Maher, but it just irritates me too much.

It makes me cringe whenever I hear someone say they like someone like Sarah Palin because she’s a normal hockey mom, not some person who has been in Washington blah blah blah. Seriously, if someone is going to be vice president or president of the United States I want to hope that they’re so much smarter than me it makes my head spin. Heck I hope people in most any position in government are that much smarter than me because they deal with things too important to mess up so badly.
