Today’s funny new Keep the Change comic strip deals with the recent revelations that former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin had an one night stand with former NBA star Glen Rice in the late 80s. Personally, I don’t see the big deal, but given how the media loves to run with a story, could you imagine how blown out of proportion this story would have been during the 2008 presidential race? I’m sure someone (like

Minnesota congresswoman and 2012 Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann continues to give the media and late night talk show hosts material. But not the good kind. Recently, she said, “John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That’s the kind of spirit I have, too.” That’s fine and all except the John Wayne from Waterloo was the serial killer John Wayne Gacy. When given the chance to clarify her comments, she refused. I wonder what was going through the minds of the GOP heads when they saw the interview. Click the cartoon to enlarge.
But, then again, maybe she does have the spirit of that John Wayne. SMH.
