The American people are very astute. I reported a couple of years ago that nearly two-thirds of voters identified the federal government as the greatest threat to the country’s future.

They’re right, and it’s also very scary, as illustrated by this Glenn McCoy cartoon.

With frightening legislation such as Obamacare, tax hikes, and Dodd-Frank, no wonder about two out of three people have a very or somewhat negative view of Washington.

McCoy does very good work. He has a great pair of cartoons on condoms and gay marriage, and I also like his cartoon on sequester hysteria, as well as how he portrayed gullible voters being bribed with their own money. In my opinion, though, his cartoon on media bias is the best of the bunch.

I realize this might mean I’m not a very nice person, but I take joy in the sadness of others.
