The Week in Editorial Cartoons – Republican Thuggery on Full Display, Part I

This election season has brought out some real ghouls, some, but not all, as a result of the Tea Party.  These monsters are great for cartoonists, but not so great for the voters.  The saddest part is, none of these characters offers a message of hope.  It is all about tearing the other guy down.  I know this kind of negative campaigning happens with every election.  It just seems more frightening this year.

Christine O’Donnell by Taylor Jones, Politicalcartoons.com, Buy this cartoon

Christine O’Donnell is fast becoming the face of the Republican Party.  Her campaign slogan is — to put it in Marxist language — power to the people.  Or, something like that. To quote an oft-used phrase on the internet(s) and one used frequently on this blog, “Teh stoopid! It burns.”  

Time permitting, I will try to post Part II of this diary later on this week.

A note on methodology

I just listened to Chuck Todd describing how NBC identifies likely voters-

  • Did you vote in 2006?  Yes.
  • Did you vote in 2008?  Yes.
  • On a scale of 1 to 10, how interested are you in voting in 2010?  Two.

NBC is only interested in 8 or above.

Likelihood I personally WILL vote in 2010?  100%.
