Tonight, President Obama will deliver his State of the Union speech as GOP candidates bludgeon themselves over vulture capitalism and influence peddling. Are Republicans making it easy for a President facing high unemployment and record levels of debt?
We’ll leave the history of tonight to Newt Gingrich. For now, check out our new State of the Union cartoon collection.
Tonight, President Obama will be giving his State of the Union speech. As is tradition, the Republicans will counter with an official rebuttal, given this year by Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan.
But thanks to the tea party movement, there will be a third Republican response, given by tea party darling Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).
Find a politician who hangs out on the fringe and says crazy things (like the founding fathers ended slavery), and you’ll often find a local political cartoonist making a living lampooning her.
Bachmann has the misfortune of sharing a state with the talented Steve Sack, the terrific cartoonist at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Steve has been a long-time contributor on Cagle.com, and we thought in light of Bachmann’s remarks tonight to share some of his funniest cartoons about the right’s second-favorite female politician.
