I have an idea for a political cartoon depicting the extremes of the political spectrum, based on my drive home from work today.
Imagine at a three-laned road, with our gaze fixed on the back of three cars side-by-side, stopped at a red-light. (The red light could be marked, say, 2008 election.)
In the far left lane is a shiny new Toyota Prius hybrid, adorned with Greenpeace decals and two bumper stickers reading 9-11 was an inside job and Nader in 2008.
In the far right was a massive, sputtering Ford truck, adorned with several weathered Bush-Cheney decals and two bumper stickers reading Alcoholics do it in groups and This truck protected by Smith and Wesson.
In the middle of the road is a smallish car with a driver looking intensely worried at the two whack jobs on either side of him.
