Clay Bennett Cartoons

In these times of turbulence, I think we need something to make us laugh. I think Clay Bennett’s cartoons for the Chattanooga Times Free Press are hilarious.

On a more sober note, as Americans start to vote for their next government, the presidential campaign is getting bitter. The McCain camp is blaming the organizing group ACORN for everything from originating the current financial crisis to destroying the fabric of democracy. This wouldn’t be because of their highly successful drive to register new voters, by any chance?

Governor Palin meanwhile refers to Senator Obama as “elitist.” Am I the only one who thinks this sounds like a new word for “uppity?” Just asking.
