The 24/7 Election Cycle

Mark Cullum - Birmingham News. Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year 1996 Edition. pg 42

I had been saving this cartoon for an appropriate time. Well today is it. I saw a bumper sticker pushing Fred Thompson for President in 2008. It is a welcome change of pace from the lingering Kerry/Edwards stickers and the W ones also. But come on, he has not even really announced yet. At least have something like Run Fred Run! But this Jeep's sticker bypasses that and goes right to the assumption Fred is running. Hence feeding the never-ending election/re-election cycle we seem to be locked into.
