When I informed the editor of the Independent that I had yet another “Caroline Kennedy wants to be a senator cartoon,” for this week, he began bleating into the telephone, “pleeeaaaase, it’s Christmas, it’s Chanukkah, it’s Kwanza, it’s the holiday season! Can’t you just do something nice? Well, I’m not much at “nice,” so, here’s this week’s “nice” cartoon, and then right below it, a reprint of a cartoon that has become timely again, from a few months ago, before the wonderful online universe of Is it just me? sprung into existence. First, nice:

And here’s the cartoon from a few months ago:
I was appalled that the honor of hosting and controlling the question list at the first public meet-up between McCain and Obama was conducted by this Evangelist, Rick Warren. Excuse me, Barack, haven’t you heard of the separation of church and state? As for McCain, well, he’s a Republican. And it seems many Republicans have not heard of the separation of church and state. So, this is around the time I really began to think I could really vote for a Republican for the first time in my life. McCain was who he said he was. I like that. Obama… I still can’t figure out what the heck is with him or what the heck is with his supporters who seem to turn a blind eye when they should speak up. Oh well, as my husband keeps saying, “the election is over, Karen.” Sigh.
So, Evangelist, Rick Warren, anti-choice, anti-gay, will have the honor or giving the invocation at the inauguration. Well, there’s a fine poke in the eye from Obama to every woman who voted for him, and believes she should be the one to choose when she bears a child, not the government and not any frigging church. And here’s another fine poke in the eye from Obama, for every gay person who voted for him. And here’s a fine double poke in the eye to every woman who is gay, and also believes that any her uterus is her goddamned business and nobody else’s. Hey, you should have seen it coming. (As for the reference to the limousine, there was some mighty fine, self congratulatory high-fiving between Obama and Warren on the night of the event about how rich they both are. I’ll dig that up and add it in here shortly. it’s so pukey!)
