Bailout Claus

Huh? The whole point is Santa never asks for money and some auto-execs do!

Auto execs are asking for money because everybody is and congress is giving in to everybody! It's not the federal government's job to bailout struggling companies.

So when I began to look at Santa's business model, I saw some troubling signs. It appears his overhead is far greater than what he makes, and as far as I can tell, he is operating in a deficit. Sure, he has cheap, foreign labor. But how does he pay for all his raw materials? He gets paid once a year in milk and cookies, which can only take him so far.

If anyone needs a bailout, it's Santa.

"Benjamin Hummel possesses the single most important characteristic required of an editorial cartoonist: a passion for the issues. His point of view is never in doubt. When you add a sense of humor, a feel for irony and fine-tuned art skills, you have here a cartoonist worth your attention."

--Mike Keefe, Denver Post Cartoonist

"Finally, an editorial cartoonist who leans right, lives his faith, sees the funny side of politics, and can draw. Conservatives are going to like Ben's pen."
