I copied the basic idea and design for this cartoon from a different one I started earlier this year, or perhaps even late last year, but which I never finished. It works better in this case, because the earlier topic fell out of relevance relatively quickly, whereas this one should stay meaningful into the indefinite future.
Like this piece, this cartoon compares the “job creators” argument made by Conservative candidates and pundits to activities commonly associated with organized crime. Initially, I’d included a GOP symbol in the letterhead, but I realized it worked just as well without it, and that way could just as easily apply to the Democrats as well as the Republicans. Or to rich, corporate tools in general, really.
