Hey kids! I’m poking my head out of the computer/carpal tunnel doldrums rabbit hole. How could I not post something now that Mitt Romney has selected his running mate? I’m still having massive computer problems (it turns off constantly with no warning whatsoever), so I figured I’d dust off some old posters that are once again relevant. Let’s begin with the new team, Mittsie and
Eddie Munster Paul Ryan…
Well, at least
Grandpa Dick Cheney will be happy…

This will be the last installment of the series, so let’s take a look at some of the comics and comic-related pix we haven’t seen before. One of the longest running comics is Dennis the Menace, and we have had a few different Dennises. There was Chimpy, with Deadeye Dick Cheney filling in for Mr. Wilson…

When I was little, I always read Blondie comics, and my favorite characters were Dagwood and his boss, Mr. Dithers. I did a bit of a update during the Chimpy administration years.

There are some cartoon characters who start out in the funnies and then show up in books. For example, there’s Little Orphan Annie. It was a daily comic strip written and drawn by Harold Gray.

This was originally posted in February 2008 over at American Street and reposted here almost a year ago. Since we’re talking about the comics, I thought I’d dust it off.
