Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

Political Cartoons: The Kennedy Auction and so on.

Stan Freberg here with another political cartoon update. Political cartoonists' writing in newspapers around the country are, to me, usually the most satiric comments made on the news that there is. When I come back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again, with a few selected satirical political cartoons. Darcy, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, has one last comment on the Kennedy auction. An auctioneer at Sotheby's is waving a small black book. He's saying, "And the little black address book is sold to bidder number 7!"

And my friend Mike Peters, of the Dayton Daily News, shows a mother talking to her son being held in prison, as a guard watches. She says, "Sex orgies, car theft, drug rings...I NEVER should have let you go to the Naval Academy!"

And Michael Ramirez shows Clinton at a drinking fountain that reads, "Whitewater Fountain." The water is splashing all up over Clinton's face, and he says to himself, "Just act naturally, maybe nobody'll notice."

Mike Lukovich of the Atlanta Constitution shows a bunch of poor seamstresses at the Kathie Lee sweat shop. Kathie Lee Gifford is standing nearby singing, and one woman says, "I don't mind the low wages and the 14-hour days, but I don't think I can take it if she mentions Cody, Cassidy and her husband Frank again!"

Finally, Chris Britt of the Tacoma News-Tribune shows a 9-year old kid with a gun, holding up a couple of adults. The kid is saying, "Gimme your wallets and make it quick - I got curfew in ten minutes!"
