Three New Toons! Chairman Ford's Way Forward, and two more
I did something this week which I have never done before and am unlikely to do often in the future, which was to draw two cartoons. I don't really have the time, but I wanted to do something specific for my Massachusetts readers about Mitt Romney, and also give a shoutout to my Detroit readers with a cartoon about the horrible layoffs at Ford (above). Plus I forgot to mention a cartoon I did about the Senate Democrats being too wimpy to filibuster Alito. (Which Kennedy and Kerry actually are now threatening to try, but it seems unlikely).
Oh, and you might want to check Bill Ford's stupid speech out for yourself, the Ford plan really is called The Way Forward. Which brings to mind the Billy Bragg song ("Waiting for the Great Leap Forward") which references Communist China's "Great Leap Forward" plan. I guess Bill Ford still hasn't learned his lesson about marketing and PR.
As for the Romney toon, for those of you not in the know, Willard Mitt won the Massachusetts governorship in 2002 on claims he was a MODERATE Republican. Now that he wants to be president, he spends all his time in red states badmouthing Mass.
