It amuses me to reuse old cartoons; I don’t find much opportunity to do it, but when I do, I chuckle to myself and take an extra hour for lunch. Â Today’s deja-toon is the stinky White House fish, which is “Crazy Spending” taking attention away from the Obama Administration’s health care planning.
Back in January of 2007 the fish was the Iraq War, stinking up george W. Bush’s White House when he wanted everyone to think that things smelled fine.
What I find most interesting about my bi-annual parade of dead White House fish, is that no one has ever noticed. Â I haven’t even gotten a friendly email from a fan or editor saying, “Haven’t I seen that fish before, Daryl?” Â No one remembers the fish. Â It is entirely forgettable, which, I suppose, makes the point. Â The White House never seems to notice the fish either.
