Grabbing the White House
Howdy, Dear Patrons and Cartoon Pals.

Whoo, boy.  We're almost to election day.  At least the pundits have stopped predicting Trump is about to move to the center in time for the general election.  I'm SO ready to move onto other topics that are way more important than the latest Donald Trump tweet.  Yet there's the whole leader-of-the-free-world threat so what is small and stupid becomes big and important.  Aye, the paradox.  (For example, I REALLY should have been doing a cartoon this week about the Dakota Access Pipeline protests . . . coming soon.)

After what seems like twenty long years of primary campaigning and another ten years of general election campaigning, election day is nearly upon us.  Seems like just yesterday that Jeb Bush had this thing locked up with his horribly-named “shock and awe” fundraising strategy.

It is still unfathomable to me that there could be any undecided voters out there at this point.  Are they undecided or just afraid to say who they’ll pick in the voting booth?  What November Surprise will burst forth now that Hillary Clinton’s October Surprise seems to be going by the wayside (for now)?  

Surely Donald Trump will say or do some wild things as he struggles to win, maybe there will be an earth-shattering revelation on Anthony Weiner’s laptop— but there is one presidential test that may be better than the “who would you want to have a beer with” test.  Who would you trust to give Little Suzie Newsykins a private tour of the Oval Office?  

By the way, it looks like I'll be doing some Facebook Live drawing and commenting with KQED on election day, keep your eyes peeled here for details!  

As always, thank you SO much for your support!
