Tough to take for Hillary
Sarah Palin must be the final insult to poor Hillary. To be so close to breaking the ultimate glass ceiling, and to feel you were mistreated by the media, and then to see some gun-tottin’, Bible-thumpin’ hottie hockey mom, with even less experience than that punk you were supposed to have crushed, strut in using a ready-made “the media is sexist” defense … . Every time Palin evokes her name on the campaign trail, Hillary must die a thousand deaths.
When I first sketched this toon, I had Hillary saying something like “What have I begot?” But as I was looking at it on the art board, the final caption wrote itself. It’s the unspoken word that’s been in the background this entire whole campaign (and notice that it’s still unspoken). It seemed pretty obvious that’s “What Hillary Must Be Thinking.”
