Looking at today's news is, frankly, heartbreaking. The 2000th (nearly unheralded) military death in Afghanistan...more violence across the Middle East...the collapsing US dollar...the Whitehouse coverup of the entirely predictable and entirely successful Benghazi terrorist attack...taxpayer money going to the Muslim Brotherhood...taxpayer money going to "Obamaphones"...16 young partygoers in Mexico slain with "Fast & Furious" guns...and on and on and on.
But what was perhaps the most troubling thing in today's news was the date: October 1st.
Or, to put it more accurately, ONLY October 1st...as in there's still a whole stinking month standing between us and the chance to go to the ballot box and vote out the loathsome, jug-eared, anti-American, hate-filled socialist who is currently wiping his sorry keester with our Constitution.
And frankly, that's driving us crazy here at the office towers of Hope n' Change Cartoons Unlimited. We don't want to see the new Fall TV shows and movies. We don't want to celebrate Halloween. We don't give a rat's hiney about Oktoberfest. We don't want to watch the leaves on the trees paint themselves in rich autumnal tones of orange, red, and yellow. And we especially don't want to see the First Lady demonstrating how to make Harvest apple cider by squeezing winesaps in her clawlike fists.
Oh sure, October will be the month for the debates - and those may well be crucial to finally exposing Barack Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama as the absolute failure he is, and showing people that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are decent, intelligent men who have the vision, desire, and talent to actually start turning this country around.
But even so, October currently feels like the old Berlin Wall - an ugly, impenetrable edifice separating us from the freedom and hope we so yearn for.
It makes us wish that Ronald Reagan could shake a commanding fist and shout: "Mr. Obamachev, tear down this month!"
Hope n' Change Cartoons will get back to our standard format on Wednesday. But today, the damnable first of October, this was what we most needed to say.
