    Am I wrong, or would this cartoon work for either candidate winning? It was always assumed that the vote would be close.
    Not dissing Toles, just wondering if he did the cartoon long before the polls closed?

    Somewhere, out there in America, the next Timothy McVeigh is beginning to lay out his plans.

    He’s Ted Nugent. I remembered his words

    I am sure this cartoon was done before the election. Clever idea. Thank God the choice was decisive enough to prevent another 2000 debacle. Though it is hard to say who won. I mean, no sane man would want that job at a time like this.

    It’s like Catch-22: We want a sane man in the office. You can’t win unless you really want to and sincerely believe you are equal to the job. No entirely sane man thinks he is equal to the job or wants the job.

    Well, congratulations, Mr. President. I am glad it’s you and not me or Mr. Romney. Good luck. You’re going to need it.

    I expect everyone will move a little closer to the middle, now, and be a little more cooperative with each other. Except for Harry Reid. I hope that Harry surprises me, though.

    The actual vote looked close for awhile. Before the late counters on the West Coast came in, it looked like Romney was going to win the popular vote, then it looked like it might be very close for awhile.


    Counting is still going on, but now President Obama is leading by more than 2 million votes, which isn’t THAT close.


    And the Iowa Electronic Markets, which pays for the popular vote, not the election, is paying off on an Obama win.

    Wednesday morning. All state results in. Except Florida.

    Florida was admitted as a state in 1845. More than 150 years ago. Should we give it . . . I don’t know . . . maybe another half-century or so . . . before the state can figure out how to handle this whole “voting” thing?

    Nothing like losing gracefully, eh? Not that we were expecting it from you.

    The Onion’s infamous article from 4 years ago still applies. Much too true.

    Given how long it takes to get from the artist’s drafting board to press, I think this must have been days ago… And you’re right – it works no matter which way the vote went :)

    Like Cincinnatus, only give the job to people who don’t want it and do it by a draft.
