Bailing the GOP… Again

Originally published in the Grand Rapids Business Journal, January 23, 2006

This week’s comic is about our representative from Grand Rapids, Vern Ehlers, being brought to the forefront to sort out this lobbying scandal business. Rep. Ehlers is very much in the mold of one of his predecessors, Gerald Ford. That is, he’s a righteous fellow who prefers to work behind-the-scenes but will loyally, if reluctantly, do what his party asks him to. In this case, as with Nixon and Watergate, the power-hungry GOP stinkers need their good brother to post bail.
