2. Too many cartoonists are lazily taking the low road on the private sector comment

Oliphant is just the latest. I have found it hard to find any cartoonist who doesn't take the easy route out and accepting the RW meme of Obama being out of touch. Kinda sad.

5. Lalo Alcaraz nailed it.

I think Oliphant's window cleaning metaphor is just too laborious. I weeded out the really wrong one's on the topic as I'm sure you notice.

6. Agree.

I have been surprised how many normally liberal cartoonists have fallen for that meme, though.

3. I think I just flat don't understand the Oliphant

I see Uncle Sam, is that supposed to be Obama falling off the other end?

4. They are window cleaning...

and Obama is falling off the end. The little feller on the bottom right is Oliphant's universal character "Punk."
