drilling-john-mccain.jpg Ball point pen on the morning newsprint I have a photo shoot in New York for a book cover illustration I'm working on, so today is another quicky. Right or wrong, I think that tapping our domestic oil reserves is a good place for McCain to go drilling for votes, but his gas tax holiday for the summer months crusade is loosing it's window of effectiveness. It's almost August and congress will soon be headed home to their districts until after Labor Day. It's beating a dead horse. ...

mccain_john.jpg Ball point pen on the morning newsprint Any resemblance that this doodle has to Don Rickles was totally unintentional. But it seems that lately, McCain, like Rickles has to rip his friends to succeed, so maybe I allowed that to subliminally enter into my morning ritual...who knows...Anyway...The latest hockey puck that McCains has to denounce, his top economic adviser, former Texas Senator Phil Gramm. Gramm said the economy would be doing fine if it weren''t for our nation of whiners talking it down. I'll try to smile the next time I pull up to the pump. ...

joe-lieberman.jpg Ball point pen on the morning newsprint This mornings doodle may set the record for the quickest I've done on this blog.

Joe Lieberman, conservative Democrat turned Independent, is looking like McCain's shadow. ...

I'm on board with that. Lets bring the pork above board. The US Dollar has tanked in recent years, in large part due to out of control spending and budget deficits by a republican administration. (BTW, Crude oil is traded in US Dollars) Can he successfully distance himself from that? Tomorrow, running mates...I take requests. ...

joe_sixpack.jpg Ball point pen on the morning newsprint. I can see myself going out for a beer with John McCain, and it's been said that many americans want that in a president. If you think it doesn't matter, you're either underestimating americans love of beer or overestimating their thought process in choosing a leader. Americans regularly choose a candidate based on race, gender, heritage, or even sex appeal... campaigns know it, and they're not above courting any demographic. The most forced example was Hilary's campaign having a photo-op kegger on the plane with the press and Senator Clinton drinking beer out of a large red plastic cup. Haaa!....I think the Joe-Sixpack vote goes to McCain. ...
