The New(est) McCain

Posted by Eric Devericks

Looks to me like he shrinks with each new version?
Update:
Here is a fantastic cartoon by a friend of mine Matt Davies of The Journal News. His cartoon and blog post capture exactly how I feel about the McCain campaign and it goes along nicely with my cartoon below.

McCain Needs More Lipstick

Posted by Eric Devericks

I can hardly believe what's going on with the economy and some of this countries largest financial institutions. According to polls, the economy is the biggest issue in this years election. It's hard for me to put all the blame for what's going on on the Bush Administration because it seems to me that most of the very poor decisions that got us here were made solely by shortsighted, greedy banks and investment firms. What I can't help but think though, is that someone had to be warning the Bush administration that this was coming a long time ago and to my knowledge they did nothing.

As a fellow Republican McCain is going to have to answer for Bush's mess to some degree. With all the talk of lipstick and pigs lately this seemed like the perfect image to bring it all together.

Obama Follows the Kerry Script

Posted by Eric Devericks

Do any of you see history repeating itself the way I do? For a month now the Obama campaign has been under attack and on the defensive. McCain has taken the initiative and the momentum and it seems to me is running both campaigns. As a result, the only Obama you see on the news every night isn't his trademark soaring oratory, it's him responding to the latest attack. To top things off, when the Obama campaign does muster the strength for an attack they focus on Sarah Palin.

Now, this morning I wake up to these headlines and a cartoon is born.

"Obama Campaign Vows Aggressive Response to GOP Attacks" - The Washington Post


"Obama's Tone Sharpens As Party Frets" - The New York Times

For a so called "change" election, looks like the campaigns are repeating the 2004 script. In case you forgot, let me remind you. It's the script where the Republicans start racheting up their attacks, they get sharper, more frequent and effective. Meanwhile, the Democrats vow a more aggressive response but get stuck on the defensive and never mount any significant counter. Remember that? Who wins and who loses depends on your perspective, but if things keep repeating themselves the way they have, I can tell you who the president will be.

Rubber and Glue

Update: The McCain campaign just released this ad contrasting Gov. Palin's experience with Sen. Obama. One of the reasons I think this pick works is that every time the Democrats tell you Palin doesn't have the experience to be VP, it's a reminder that Obama doesn't have any more experience than she does. In my opinion it's similar to Obama going to the beach as he has done a number of times now. Seeing him swimming and walking on the beach with his shirt off looking fit reminds voters that McCain is old.
