For those who haven't read the New Yorker in years, the cartoons are always bound to send you back. This collection of political cartoons features a politician who thanks his two aids, one who wrote his speeches and the other who delivered them. Another hopeful running for office begins his speech: 'I'm glad to be here in North or South Dakota.' George Washington's father, finding his son having chopped down the cherry tree: 'If you cannot lie your way out of this one, you'd better forget about becoming a politician.' A congressman holding a copy of his speech shouts at his aid: 'Who wrote this speech? It comes dangerously close to the truth!' One cartoon, probably from the Clinton era, has a White House aid knocking on the door of the Oval Office, saying 'Mr. President? Are you decent?' A politician about to give up the election to his opponent is consoled by his wife: 'Things are improving. Four years ago you took a shorter time before coming forward with your concession speech.' Funny stuff.
