I just heard from my good friend DFW...

It seems that he has a friend at The Nation who asked him if he might have a caption for a cover picture. Turns out he did, and they used it on the cover.

17. The artist did a great job. The caricatures capture the spirit of each individual.

Look at the meanness in Carly Fiorina.

8. awesome! So clever. LOL!

I have a friend who has a business that names products for corporations. They generate a zillion names on a computer and winnow it down to the best two or three. She named Pepsi One, Pepsi One. The client hated it, fussed around for another, then went with Pepsi One because it was the best name.

I can't imagine the good feeling of naming something big like this but good on you, DFW. I will remember you when I read that issue.

11. Now THAT is talent.

My favorite has to be Crisco. He looks like he's getting ready to retaliate against Trump -and the whole room- in his own, very pungent way (Cruz, Paul, and Hickabee look like they've already noticed). Talk about a disaster area!

14. Speaking of hair...

I think that's part of why I really like Bernie.

He lacks that dyed, "Helmet Head", perfect part, not a hair moving or out of place...

I'm not looking at politician hair and usually thinking...crook and liar!

19. The brilliant drawing was the real cake here.

I just provided a little icing.

But I won't deny that it was one hell of an honor to be asked to provide the icing!

When the internecine warfare heats up, we will all be heirs to the spectacle of clowns running like hares to the exit.

My friendship with Katrina is based on a lot of mutual respect, that's all.
There are plenty on this board who would question the judgment of you both!

It took all of about 3 seconds to come to me! The artist deserves most of the credit. What a visual takedown of those clown car passengers!
