In four panels, Garry Trudeau puts forward a question everyone should be asking: how can John McCain blame our financial woes on Wall Street’s lobbyists when 83 current and former Wall Street lobbyists work for his campaign? Shouldn’t someone get fired? McCain likes to say that as president he’ll ferret out the worst earmarkers in Congress and “make ’em famous!” In that spirit, we published the names of those 83 lobbyists and the financial industry clients they work for on our blog. Now, apparently, those names are working their way into popular culture.
We don’t know if Trudeau is a fan of Mother Jones, but we’re fans of his.
