Cartoon ripping GOP presents an incomplete picture


After looking at the Jan. 3 Dan Wasserman cartoon, in which Uncle Sam is tied to the railroad tracks by a pair of Republican elephants, I wondered how many other readers concluded that it was unfinished. The artist could have quipped about members of Congress from both parties riding the train in first class. Perhaps he might have drawn a string of freight cars laden with products manufactured overseas? Even better: How about depicting an overflow of passengers who had never paid for their ticket?
