Being Jesse Kelly

Regular readers will know I cartoon for TucsonSentinel.com, which is at the moment covering the campaign to fill Representative Gabrielle Giffords' seat in Congress. The combatants, er, candidates, are Giffords's former district director Ron Barber, and Republican Jesse Kelly, who was involved in a kerfuffle about his endorsement by a group reported to be anti-illegal immigrant "neo-Nazis" the other day while being interviewed by Arizona television station KGUN9. Kelly's spokesman John Ellinwood lost his cool when reporter Jennifer Waddell relayed a viewer's question about the anti-illegal immigrant group ALIPAC's endorsement of the Republican candidate.
It's tricky, knowing when to cut your old buddies loose when they start to drag you down. But Jesse? It's time.
