"Captures the Elitism" is quite right. My prediction is that history will look back on Rathergate as a watershed event in the downfall of broadcast news.
I sure would feel better about the whole thing if Bush had had the guts to fight like Kerry did. Oh well.

I'd love to know which cartoons will be auctioned after this one. Upcoming travel requires planning.

Wow, I'm looking forward to seeing how much that thing goes for. It'll surely be for a bundle.

I agree with Nast. It would be wonderful to know what will be auctioned. I like this one, but most of my favorites contain Uncle Sam. I would give up some of my budgeted discretionary spending to splurge on one of those.

I like the Uncle Sam ones, too. I'd especially love to have the one with his arm around Reagan.

We appreciate everyone's interest in knowing which cartoons are going on the auction block next, and we understand the need to budget. We initially decided not to list future auctions for a couple of reason: 1) to keep people coming back to see what's next; and 2) to avoid committing ourselves to auctioning certain cartoons. However, this is new for us, so we'll see how it goes for while and make changes as needed.

For now I'll say that at least five more cartoons will go on the block in the coming weeks.

Our thanks to everyone who has bid so far.
