Staunton’s News Leader “Political Cartoon”


    This was published last Saturday in a Gannett newspaper right here in Virginia. A search for it online has yielded no success. The mother paper, USA Today, does not proudly include it in the cartoon gallery. There is no attribution. Even harder to find is any succinct message. Can you?

    Someone mentioned this cartoon Saturday afternoon. No success finding it online, but a trip to the library located an issue. It appears the campaign of character assassination is raging at the local as well as the national level. The target is the person, not the policies. It relies on perceptions that have been crafted weaving threads of misinformation into a shroud of whole cloth over the past three years. American politics has an ugly history. It is about to get a much uglier future.
