The scariest cartoon you’ll see this year

Lucas Gray, an animator for The Simpsons and Family Guy, was so impressed with the concise economic lesson President Obama gave in an April 2012 speech that he added some illustrations and posted it on YouTube under the name “Why Obama Now.” Gray’s illustrations perfectly complement Obama’s point-by-point denunciation of right-wing, tax-cutting policies that got the nation to where it …

The time-difference between southern Sweden and the southern U.S. has kept me from seeing any of the Republican National Convention live, but I have been catching bits and pieces of it online.
