We’ve focused on comic book and book covers, and today I thought we’d concentrate on the characters. 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.

Hey kids! By now you’ve all heard
Deadeye Dick Cheney’s remark about President Obama and the war in Afghanistan. To refresh your memory:

Well, kids, that got me thinking. Why dithering? Who says dither these days? Then it hit me. I know why dithering came to

At least one prominent former Bush official has the following message for President Obama: I don’t care if it’s warm enough to grow orchids in the Oval Office. Put your suit jacket on.
In an interview scheduled to run Wednesday night, Andrew H. Card Jr. told the syndicated news show Inside Edition that “there should be a dress code of respect” in the White House and that he wished Mr. Obama “would wear a suit coat and tie.”
Chimpy always wore a suit coat and tie in the Oval Office. However, there’s something that Andy Card won’t tell you…

From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Watching CNN’s Cafferty File, we learn that the collision of the Bush family and the Obama famly at the White House today was something like “the Flintstones meet the Jetsons.”
Close, but no cigar! You see, kids, I have photographic proof that Grumpy Jack was only half right. Here’s are Chimpy and Pickles greeting Michelle and Barack Obama in front of the White House.
