Stephen Bowers – The Audacity of Hype

Stephen Bowers asks, “Can you imagine if Nixon, as he was boarding Marine Corps One for the last time had said “You know, Barbara, my resignation doesn’t mean anything, because, as you know, I got re-elected.” You’d look over your shoulder for guys in white coats with butterfly nets. And for the moment, compare the harm Obama’s lies have caused to what Nixon’s caused.  Who cares about the medical records of the psychiatrist of the Berrigan brothers? Or the “plumbers” who tried to steal them? Or the fact Nixon was not truthful about his knowledge of those silly antics. While, on the other hand, who cares about the millions who will be without their health insurance because of Obamacare?…Come on, get serious. Get presidential. Get Nixonian. Resign”

Stephen Bowers

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.
