    Learning how to think can come after that!

    This might well be the WORST drawing ever produced by someone claiming to be a “professional” cartoonist.

    The building in this cartoon is NOT the George W. Bush Presidential Library opening in Dallas. It’s the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas.

    Jeez, Luckovich, do 5 minutes of research next time.

    Of course, when it’s death by strangulation, you’ll rarely see a murder/suicide.

    Think visually.

    Did you ever stop to think that this cartoon might just be a statement on deregulation in general?

    There is no indication that all of these signs came from one corner, sbwinn. In fact, quite the opposite (only the stop sign seems to have been removed from this particular location).

    And there is no reference to the Obama Administration, rightisright. So, I don’t believe Bennett is implying that the present administration is taking deregulation too far.

    Certainly nobody would argue against eliminating needless regulation, but there is a point where the zeal for deregulation becomes quite dangerous to society at large (as the cartoon implies).

    Like many stories, some aspects of this lore are true, while others are not.

    Gingrich may not have actually served his first wife with divorce papers on her deathbed, but he did discuss their impending divorce (and argued about it) with Jackie Battley while she was in the hospital recovering from surgery to remove a tumor, is all basically true.

    So, I suppose Newt would be a merely a cad, instead of a DESPICABLE cad.

    The fact aside, this cartoon is only using that lore as an analogy about how Newt seems to be jilting historic Republican philosophy for the more radical brand of Tea Party conservatism. So, I think Bennett’s use of the more dramatic version would fall under artistic license.
