I can relate to not being able to sleep — that was me too! Hence it's 9 am and I have already done the puzzle.

Puzzle — 3:33 At least my boat hasn't sunk yet!

MoveOn — Amen! Bill Cosby. Nothing we didn't already know but it is good to hear others confirm it. He's one of my all time favourites. My grade 11 English teacher went off script for a while — we listened to Bill Cosby records and analysed the humour. It was fun and a welcomed relief from Shakespeare and Pride and Prejudice.

USA Today — An endorsement from Bloomberg, an independent and former GOP, IS a BIG feather in Mr Obama's cap.

The New Yorker — Well if poor little Willard is so upset about not being the top dog, strap him to the roof of Marine One and he can be head and shoulders above Mr Obama and Chris Christie as they tour New Jersey to survey the damage!

“He’s been calling [New York Governor Andrew] Cuomo,” the aide said. “But Cuomo won’t call him back either. It’s all so sad.” — Romney is such a drama queen! Can't you just feel the love for Romney?!

Cartoon — "I promise change! — "Yup, after I have made a decision I'll my mind just to keep you guessing! We all must be adaptable!"

Get out the vote!!!!! Four more years!!!!!

Vote Democratic 2012!!!!! Vote Obama/Biden 2012!!!!!

great cartoon, Tom! Its really what he means when he talks about change, I believe so.
Bill Cosby, totally says what we have all been saying. He also took the high road, not even touching on the undertone of racism that all of us perceive in the haters.
Romney is jealous of Christie's love of Obama, and also Bloomberg's support, LOL! He is like the nasty but beautiful girl in high school who bullies her way and gets what she wants when suddenly her boyfriend sees the real beauty of the nerdier but incredibly accomplished smart girl who shows up wearing a gown that stops his heart, the lights hit her just so....and I just love how that story always ends. I know this is a little different, but the ending is so analogous.

Mr. Romney will give us change all right....all for the bad....i.e. the regulations Krugman wrote about in your other post will also be ended w/r environment........and think of going back to a strike-first mantra w/r military.....

Great cartoon TomCat, but I think you're making Willard out to be more generous than his is. He'll keep every penny! (4:42)

Excellent post TomCat - but I have to agree with Joe R - Little Lord Willard will indeed keep every penny - he seems to have a Scrooge Complex! So nice to see Bill Cosby - and I agree with Camilla - he has taken the High Road and ignored the Tea Baggers Racism and Hatred....

Thanks everyone. I apologize for cartooning Lord Willard more generous than he is.

Also agree with my friend, Joe R. The picture of MittWitt has that sh*t eating grin on it. I guess it is always there.

Yep, Dotti, my theory is that he is a plastic faced dummy
