Vulture Capitalism

It's delightful to watch the remaining Republican presidential candidates tear into Mitt on his previous incarnation as a vulture capitalist. All of a sudden these otherwise uber Social Darwinists take issue with the lack of virtue in big fish gobbling up little fish. Watching this fratricide unfold, so we're told, is a great gift to the Democrats and Obama, who will be able to take the moral high ground in advocating their version of capitalism for the 21st century. The only problem is they take money from the same vested interests and have about as little regard for the poor and working class. I almost put Obama in the 'toon as a vulture, asking Romney, "What took you so long? There's plenty to go around." Maybe I'll save that for the general election campaign...

Flip-Floppin' Mitt

It seems inevitable to me that politicians, with all of their twisting, turning and wiggling, wind up "assuming the position." Poor Mitt is just a bit more egregious than most. There's nothing wrong with changing one's views, especially if the change is a result of some reflection and learning. Somehow, though, I'm not sure those are two words in Mitt's vocabulary. Sorry for the long hiatus. Holidays kept me very busy padding my waistline and catching up on much needed sleep. Hope everyone has a joyous New Year. Looks to be a good one for cartoonists as the politicians race for the "bottom" in their ongoing crusade to dumb down our civic culture.
