Dueling Comic Strips

In today's paper, a right-leaning comic strip, Prickly City, features Howard Dean saying to a little girl, "Not one Democratic congressman took money from Jack Abramoff!!!" She replies. "Chairman Dr. Dean, at least 80 Democrats took money from Mr. Abramoff...."

Dean: "And that's not one Democrat, now is it?!!! AARRRRGGGH!"

Little girl: "And you call the president a liar."

On the same page (literally, not figuratively), a left-leaning comic strip, La Cucaracha, features an editor telling an artist to "make me an editorial cartoon on the Abramoff money scandal."

The artist: "The Republican bribery scandal?"

The editor: "Nooo! The scandal where Abramoff gives illegal cash to Democrats too."

The artist: "Even though he didn't."

The editor: "Don't give me facts. Give me opinion!"
