I have to compliment myself on this one. Not so much the cartoon (it’s okay — it was fun drawing Uncle Sam, but I never did get his hands right). No, it was the timing. I had to get this one done Wednesday morning before Christmas. At that point, the Senate’s two-month extension of the payroll tax cut and extending unemployment benefits was considered dead in the House. I gambled the deal would get done (including the nonsensical¬†bit about fastracking an oil pipeline) by Saturday. Then, blamo!, Friday it went through. It was, well… for America¬†it was yet another partisan politics debacle. But for me it was a Christmas Miracle!
