The news from six months from now, maybe. (I didn’t want to feed the media narrative of an inevitable tea party sweep, which I think is overstated. This is a wacky “what if” cartoon, not a wacky “when definitely” cartoon.)
Also: couldn’t let Christine O’Donnell fade into irrelevancy without allowing myself at least one masturbation joke. I think my official cartoonist credentials would have been revoked.
