My first attempt at a political cartoon - The fiscal cliff

Really good cartoon. I wanted

Really good cartoon. I wanted to see if I could figure out who it was hanging from the rope before I read the article. Honestly, just looking at him, I couldn't tell at first. But I figured it out pretty fast. Bernanke. He's building the precarious bridge to nowhere (hence money-printing that will lead us to a much worse fall). Very very nice. I just started reading the article and have to get back to it. It was interesting! Thanks!

Love it and will return to your blog

Is that Helicopter Ben dangling from the rope---the brilliant (evil) bearded man.

This is absolutely awesome!

Great cartoon (I hope to see more in the future) and your explanation is very well done. If you don't mind, I'm sharing this with everybody I know. To hear this much sense about the "fiscal cliff" is blowing my mind.
