Political musings from Warren E. Peterson

Clear Fog in Prickly City

Posted by Warren Peterson on April 4, 2008

If you read my previous post on the nationally syndicated comic strip Prickly City, you’d see that Clear Fog raised a serious constitutional issue with the strip. The cartoonist, Scott Stantis, poking fun at the current presidential race, has a left leaning coyote running for president with a right of center girl as his vice-president. Unfortunately for their ticket, the constitution places restrictions on candidates from the same state. As a result, Scott revised his story line and you can see the finished product in the Seattle Times Comics for March 31 through April 3, 2008. Just under the lower right hand corner of the on-line strip for April 3 is a drop down menu for previous days.

Thanks to Scott Stantis for a very funny strip and responding so graciouly to a blogger from Seattle. Thanks go also to well known conservative Seattle attorney and constitutionalist, Richard Derham, for adding the finer points on the constitutional provisions. (see Dick’s comments on my original post).
