Categories: Comics, Announcements

The land of DailyINK still has an eye on the upcoming elections, and more so than ever!

EDISON LEE spent this week daydreaming about what it would be like to be Vice President under Grandpa Orville—and it looks like Grandpa has his work cut out for him!

Over in EDGE CITY, the battle of the Super PACs is heating up, when Edna starts her own left-leaning Super PAC to oppose Morris’. And the attack ads are pretty nasty:

Hi of HI & LOIS is getting fed up with all the negativity in politics:

And BLONDIE and Dagwood are having difficulty telling the difference between the debates and reality television:

Editorial cartoonist MIKE SMITH is waiting patiently with the rest of America for the post-debate “spin” to end:

While BIZARRO just wants the incessant campaign calls to stop:

In SAFE HAVENS, Jeanine Argus’ political opponent is apparently running against her evil twin:

Ted Forth of SALLY FORTH has just abandoned politics all together and is really much more interested in the evil twin part:

There’s a lot of wishful thinking going around this week in addition to Ted’s. TODD THE DINOSAUR struggles with the fact that he’s never going to be Spock:

GIL learns the value of play money:

Marla of RETAIL deals with a customer who might be living on another planet:

For a different kind of wishful thinking, Amy of THE PAJAMA DIARIES may have developed her first crush (uh oh!):

Congrats to Les and Cayla!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
