I almost feel sorry for the Republicans, with the emphasis on "almost." They are truly lost in the new liberal landscape of Washington, D.C. They lack true leadership, which leaves the door open for extremists like Rush and Hannity. The only argument they seem capable of making is that the Obama administration is spending too much to save the economy. The general public doesn't agree. Obama's approval ratings are higher than the last several presidents after their 100-day marks.
The GOP must feel a little like they are trapped in a prison, marking the days on the wall until they can regain some power. It was with this in mind that I drew this cartoon. I decided not to make it a prison, at least for now. One problem I ran into, as you can see from the rough sketch above, was how to negotiate the hatch marks.
