How the Gingrich Stole Christmas!
Talented editorial cartoonist Terrence Nowicki, Jr. nailed this one:
Newt Gingrich, the current flavor-of-the-month in the GOP Presidential Primary, recently called anti-child labor laws ‘stupid,’ and argued that children in poverty find themselves there because of a lack of opportunities to develop a good work ethic. Proving once again that his reputation as an ‘intellectual’ must’ve been earned ironically, he suggested that schools fire their janitors and hire poor students to fill the role instead, as a solution to this imaginary problem.
Gingrich isn’t the first GOPper in recent memory to question anti-child labor laws. […]
By the way, before anybody points it out, I did realize after coloring this that I made Gingrich’s head look awfully phallic. This was not intentional, but now that I can’t unsee it, I have to admit it seems pretty appropriate, considering the kind of guy he is.
