Putting Sarah Palin into a strip is always a risky thing. But this time it became even riskier due to the recent shootings in Arizona and what I'll call "rhetoric-gate".
So it's important to note that this particular strip was written over a month ago. It was meant to refer only to the level of tension between Sarah Palin and Hilary Clinton as political rivals - sort of ala the Saturday Night Live Sketch of 2 years ago and not to any actual violence that may or may not have been spurred by Palin's notorious "gun sights" map.
Risky or not - I'm sure our friend Sarah will show up in strips to come. She's too good a source of material to ignore :-)
John has posted his second installment of the process we went through to produce "The Edison Files: Notes From The Lab".
After he finishes this series, I will probably weigh in with some of my own remembrances :-)
Also, now that the holidays and a completely crazy travel filled Autumn are over, I am back to blogging over at Overbooked and Underpaid.
And, there are many opportunities to meet cartoonists coming up - I'm working hard to get as many of them posted as I can over on Spot The Cartoonist. In fact, I plan to have several more up by the end of the day. Cartoonists - don't forget, wherever in the world you will be speaking, attending a show opening, signing your book, or creating general mayhem in the public sphere, contact me at email@example.com with your info and I'll get it posted asap!
