To create an editorial cartoon is to take the serious and point out the folly within. In the case of the president’s Secret Service detail, who allegedly partied, drove drunk through a cordoned-off White House barrier and over a mysterious package being investigated as a possible bomb, the cartoonist’s work has already been done.
With all the kvetching about a Castro controlling Cuba since 1959: From 1981 to 2009, a Bush or Clinton was president or vice president of the United States. Nonetheless, I think they’re not done with us.
I always assumed that if you so much as touched the railings at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, you would be vaporized by the laser beams expertly trained on your DC-visiting forehead by a team of ruthless snipers hidden behind every taxpayer funded bush.
For me that has always been incentive enough to avoid making the leap.
There is of course a very serious aspect to the notion someone can simply hop the fence and let themselves into the White House…but that’s for another cartoon.
