The Saturday Cartoons

* * * * *

In "John McCain's Fireside Chat," Mark Fiore has McCain giving us all a Roosevelt-like talkā€¦ Uh, except that it's delivered by Sarah Palin.

Click on the screenshot above or go here to see it.

And our friends at Headzup give us a look at the first day of a McCain presidency. It's funny -- and scary.

Thanks to all who have come to visit from other sites -- I'm glad you're here. But please know that this blog is about far more than the Saturday cartoons. They're merely a diversion and provide a humorous take on what's really on our minds. I primarily cover the U.S. Senate but also write about presidential politics and White House activities as well. So please take a look around beyond the 'toons -- and come back soon.
