    Energy policies, war, climate change, etc=/=politics.
    Contraception = politics.

    Sounds like something out of Catch 22.

    …keeping the public off-balance.

    @ King Shark: Joan’s point is that there are real issues that if discussed by the current candidates would make politics engaging, but they are being ignored.
    Social conservatives push ideology instead of addressing our real problems that need solutions.

    Shirley if we cut taxes for the wealthy again, a bit of that moolah will tinkle down on the hoi polloi.

    If nothing else, this gives us an idea of what the time lag is between the strip being drawn and the strip being published.

    A serious point is being made here! Hope someone is listening!

    Sad, but true. Although I think the mudslinging has been going on for ages, not just in recent times.

    Hard to get the mob excited over the national credit card being over limits – but Lady Parts!

    I like the Bristish system. The Prime Minister calls for an election, and in six weeks it’s all over.

    Yes, Viagra is covered by insurance – but somehow the right-wing moralists aren’t demanding that the men taking it tell their employers or insurance companies whether they’re having approved sex (within marriage solely for procreation) or extra-marital or non-marital affairs.

    This has been one of my favorite strips for a long time. Keep up the good work, Jan Eliot!

    Those Brits seem to be able to vote without 2 years of mudslinging from blowhard politicians.

    Yesterday, I called Rick Santorum a misogynist hobgoblin on this page. Minutes later, I found out he dropped out of the race. So, this story is quickly becoming a moot point.

    Jan – You missed the biggest issue of all, the usurpation of our freedom by a totalitarian government propagated by the deceitful mass media.

    Dead on, I couldn’t wait for something so inspiring and correct in the comics. Thanks
