Hi,
I like your cartoons you posted although I think your or the cartoonist of the tea party is a bit confused.I think making cartoons like that don't help to pull people towards the liberal politicians as I don't think people are as unintelligent as liberals think they are. This is a big reason why tea party republicans are winning across the US. Just sayin.

Ha! Another great selection. I'm kinda hoping Christine O'Donnell will write a tell all potion book.

I'm always looking for good recipes!

Ha!

Joanna: Hi, and thanks for stopping in. And thanks for leaving me a comment. I'm not an American but living next door in Canada we, of course, are heavily influenced by US television, economic policies, news and politics.

Not unlike Canadians, I think many Americans are tired of the status quo when it comes to government. In the US much of that dissatisfaction has manifested itself in the creation and popularity of the Tea Party. It's happening, here, in Canada to a lesser degree.

But whether you're on the right or left - or even in the center - editorial cartoonists give us an opportunity to think about things from a bit of a different perspective and more often than not it results in the ability to laugh at ourselves. That's why I run them every Sunday. I think we need to laugh at ourselves more often.

Linda: Hey, there. Yeah, sometimes change takes time.

What gets me about the Tea Party is it's made up largely of old white people who are sucking at the tits of social security and Medicare while railing against government. And they don't see any contradiction there whatsoever.

Jayne: There's a real distaste out there for the status quo, isn't there. CBS did a fascinating piece on the Tea Party a while back. It's here if you're interested...

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
