The Best Research

I tell my students that I only do the very best kind of research, and then I present a cartoon of some kind in my PowerPoint presentation. Well, that’s actually true. There are times when the cartoons say it so much better than the most clever commentator. Here are a few examples from this past week.

First, let’s look at the stimulus bill and the many, many jobs it created.

It’s obvious this White House needs to learn from the master.

The Ft. Hood massacre will stay in the news for quite some time, not only because the perpetrator is still alive and will have to face justice, but because of how he was able to get away with what he did.

How blind and/or politically correct have we become with respect to terrorism? Well, now we’re trying terrorists in civilian courts, providing them all the rights of U.S. citizens.

I’m sure the terrorists want their day in court to mock the justice system and create more propaganda. What’s going to stop them from doing this? We may get help in an unexpected way.

Are we really trying to bring terrorists to justice, or might there be an ulterior motive?

Healthcare, of course, remains a top priority, regardless of who gets hurt in the process.

Meanwhile, the president was out of the country, creating controversy once again.

Yet even with all of this to report on, the media has been surprised by one piece of news it didn’t anticipate.
