A Jon Kyl Christmas
Click comic to ENLARGE.
This cartoon comes from my relationship with The Tucson Sentinel, which suggested a cartoon about Christmas-loving Arizona Senator Jon Kyl.
The background: When Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid suggested he would keep the Senate in session until it had voted on a number of important legislative issues, Kyl cried, "Humbug!"
There's no way we're staying in session over Christmas, said Kyl. That'd be disrespecting the institution and disrespecting one of the two holiest of holidays for Christians. Oh, and it'd be disrespecting the families of all of the Senate, not just the senators themselves, but all of the staff.
'Cause Jon Kyl loves Christmas. Loves it. He's a god-fearin', red-blooded Christian American man. With a tee time. In Arizona. On December 25th.
