Political Cartoon Humor, The Use of Political Capital

There has been a lot of talk this week about the AIG bonuses, Government Budgets, the economy and a variety of other subjects including the President going on late night TV, another first for a standing president. I thought of this cartoon because of this late night TV appearance. It seems to me that whenever a perceived crisis, conspiracy or whatever you want to call it, the president leaves Washington and to cash in on some of that popularity capital that he has been given from his followers. The reason I say this is that he remains popular as a president while the policies seem to be loosing traction which would indicate that he has done a good job of separating himself from his policies. If that is the plan it seems to have worked thus far. Anyway, it gave me the idea for this cartoon. Enjoy and have a great day.
