In which an impish cartoonist meets a bearish House speaker

Georgia House Speaker David Ralston was scheduled to be the guest speaker Wednesday evening at a dinner honoring AJC cartoonist Mike Luckovich.  But that morning at breakfast, when Ralston opened his AJC, he found an eye-opening surprise:

mike04282010

Ralston admitted later to being a bit taken aback. “What a coincidence,” he thought, that his first starring role in a Luckovich cartoon would occur that very day. But to his credit he never thought about withdrawing from the event, which was sponsored by the Georgia First Amendment Foundation.

Pretty soon, in fact, the phone began to ring with calls from folks eager to laugh with him at the cartoon.

“My mother called today and said, ‘If you’ve gained that much weight, it’s time to come home’,” Ralston joked.

That evening, however, sponsors of the dinner were a little nervous, worried that hard feelings might mar the event. As it turned out, the concern was groundless.

When Luckovich showed up at the Woodruff Arts Center to receive the foundation’s highest award, the 2010 Charles L. Weltner Freedom of Information Award, he brought with him the original version of the cartoon to present as a gift to Ralston.

In the margins of the cartoon, he left a note pointing out that he had once drawn Ralston’s famous predecessor, the late Speaker Tom Murphy, wearing nothing but a diaper. In other words, nothing personal. A grinning Ralston gladly accepted the cartoon.

“Your honoree and I had a private discussion earlier,” Ralston told the audience in his remarks a few minutes later. “Since I believe in reciprocating, I brought you a little something.”

Summoning Luckovich to the podium, Ralston reached into his pocket and pulled out a black garter, handing it to a gleeful Luckovich.

Calling Ralston “a really good guy,” Luckovich promised that he would never draw the speaker again.

Well, at least not naked.  The speaker was no doubt grateful, and so are the rest of us.

I was just methin’ with ml thru jay. What is it you say….insensitive bastids?

All the American people asked was that the Democrats slow down on health care.

Should’a listened. What were they thinking?

The high-risk program is essentially insurance for individuals who have pre-existing conditions and are expensive to insure. The new health law allocates $5 billion for insuring them until 2014 when enrollees would be transferred to new health-insurance exchanges. But Richard Foster, chief actuary of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, reported last week that the high-risk program will run out of money next year or in 2012. Therefore, if states sign up for the program, they’ll end up shouldering the burden for about two years after it runs out of federal money.

This will be a heavy lift considering the other costs ObamaCare is foisting onto states, one of which is the expansion of Medicaid, a joint federal-state program originally designed to cover low-income Americans. Under ObamaCare, Medicaid will be expanded to cover 84 million people by 2019, up from about 50 million today, putting pressure on states’ budgets.

The White House says high-risk pools were a Republican idea. But GOP leaders called for allocating $25 billion over 10 years (instead of $5 billion over three-and-a-half years) and would have given states far greater latitude in setting the rules.

If more states opt not to join the federal program, Congress will have to acknowledge that there has been a public repudiation of the federal program. That could create pressure to give states what they want—block grants to increase their existing high-risk pools or, for states that don’t have them, money to set up new ones. Deciding whether to sign up for the high-risk program is an important early test for states to tell Washington who is in charge.

Scout, Mike was invited by Rumsfeld to visit the Pentagon a few years ago, and Mike took him up on it. While there, a workout-fiend Marine major challenged Mike to a one-armed pushup contest.

The Marine lost pretty badly, in front of Rumsfeld. So as to your previous churlish remark: No, not so much.

Didn’t mean to ignore your post downstairs. There’s this thing called work…

Dr. Hawking’s remarks: I thought years ago instances of contact between a vastly superior technological culture and an inferior one generally ends badly for the inferior one. And if we send greetings (a beacon) out into space, there’s a pretty good chance any receivers capable of answering are going to be technologically superior.

The talk about political cartoonists and being respectful and all – was an article some years back about a political cartoonist in the soviet Union. Stalin told the guy to do one on a subject. Guy did it, was told Stalin wasn’t pleased, was taken to Lubyanka and executed. Some short time later another cartoonist got the same request. Did the toon. Said for days and weeks and months he was in agony, never knowing if that knock in the night was coming.

It’s great to live in a country where one can make a living by irritating politicians.

The hallmark of modern American liberalism is that there is no limit to the amount of other people’s money they are willing to spend in the fight to do good; and there is no inconvenience so great that they won’t foist it on everyone else in the cause of social justice.

But when the going actually gets tough, the left gets the hell out.

Give up their big houses? Sacrifice their Nantucket Sound views? No way. When Barack Obama says we all must sacrifice for the common good, he really means you must sacrifice your time and income to make liberals like him look good.
