Donald Trump for President? Might not be as far-fetched as you think. A recently released Pew Research poll shows that Trump has the highest profile among GOP hopefuls, and polls last week showed The Donald ahead of the rest of the GOP pack, including Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney.
What does the elevation of Donald Trump as a serious presidential candidate mean for jobs? Well, for starters, there should be some job job security for the nation’s cartoonists. Check out their take in our Donald Trump for President cartoon slideshow.
It all boils down to this. From my perch in front of the slanted board, I want the Republicans to pick a candidate who will be fun to draw. I’ve drawn Palin and Romney and even Trump and they’re not that much fun . I haven’t tried Bachmann yet but…eh…she doesn’t look that interesting. Then we’ve got Santorum and Pawlenty…well… maybe there’s something there, I haven’t tried them yet. I HAVE had A LOT of fun with Guiliani…a LOT of fun. He’s got a great face and posture to fool around with but the chances of him being selected is pretty nil, I think, so we can forget about him. No…it all comes down to Huckabee. I vote for Huckabee and his dopey face. OK OK… for you hecklers out there, I know I have a dopey face too but I’m not running for President so I don’t get to draw me. Some of my friends have drawn me though and brother they have had a field day. As a matter of fact I’ve been drawing funny pictures of myself for years…and collecting those of others.
But…getting back to Huck, I can’t wait to sink my lino cutter into that puss of his again. I sure hope he’s the one and not that boring ol’ Romney.
