Beating Rush Limbaugh To The Punch

On Sunday, the Minneapolis StarTribune published this editorial cartoon by Walt Handelsman, suggesting that Hillary Rodham Clinton had "drifted too far to the right." To illustrate that fact, the cartoonist drew Hillary with an elephant's trunk for a nose.

First of all, the assertion that Hillary is too far to the right is absurd. Unlike our local deity Wellstone, her voting record reflects some understanding of compromises required to get stuff done. Nevertheless, it is still plenty liberal.

However, most laughable is the idea that if Hillary had elephantine features, that her nose would be the most prominent one. I'd suggest Mr. Handelsman should look at the other end of the elephant to find a match.
