Everyone pleasantly placed on the left and the right, with Barack and John right right in the middle. :)

LOL! What a riot. I love this, and your style, too!

Yeah, there are some similarities indeed Mike, mainly because many Americans are "down the middle". Still, there are some real, fundamental differences between the candidates and the parties. I think a lot of folks expect a candidate to perfectly represent each and every one of their ideals, which will never happen 'cause you just can't please every single person all the time. Here's a post by artist Danny Gregory with regards to who he's voting for and why, and I think it's one of the most intelligent things I've read so far this election season, and I've been following it like a madman. I do want to note, that I don't wanna turn this into a political blog and I wouldn't want to alienate anyone with different views from mine. I believe in peaceful discourse and hearing everyone out (or choosing not to speak out, for that matter). The great thing about this here project is, it unites us all and, in my opinion, reminds us that we're all human can be united by through power of art and creativity.

True! We are sheep... :)

I'd like to think of myself as a turtle, Mike. :/

Interesting blog post. I generally keep quiet but sometimes have to speak up--in this case I agree, but like you, don't want to alienate anyone whose beliefs are different.

I just have the one question...
what are Depends? (Ignorant English asking!)

Mike! This made my day!

Nice drawring.

And I couldn't disagree more. There are big differences in these candidates! :-)

Palin scares me more than W.

Mike Kline said...

Nice! Can we agree that all politicians are liars? :)

In politics we seem to settle for the worse of two evils on one side we have Jim Jones http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Jones
and the other Gary Gilmore
