Funniest Moment from 2008 Presidential Debates Captured in an Editorial Cartoon
“Senator Government’ was Mr. McCain’s slip of the lip that will enter the English dictionaries and encyclopedias. And the debate itself—already known as Joe-the-Plumber debate—will surely become a famous moment in U.S. history. I created this editorial cartoon in honor of this debate—enjoy.
Presidential Debate 2008, Obama vs. McCain, Joe the Plumber Debate Editorial Cartoon
I’m really curious to see how exactly Mr. Obama would “spread the wealth around” in a culture that values individualism and entrepreneurship. Mr. Obama’s spreading of wealth sounds like going against basic American values. And didn't we already nationalized the economy "faster than you can say Ugo Chavez?" Now we only need to devide the wealth--if it's still there--equally, and replace the white stripes with red ones on the Star-Spangled Banner. Then we can call ourselves USSA (for United Soviet States of America).
I must say, at the last presidential debate, Mr. McCain hit the nail on the head with his comment on Mr. Obama’s controversial phrase. Mr. McCain said:
"America didn't become the greatest nation on earth by spreading the wealth; we became the greatest nation by creating new wealth.”
