Recently several Republican candidates running for president were asked to name the greatest living president.  Ben Carson said “I don’t know.”  Rick Santorum said, “Probably a Bush,” but declined to specify any further than that.  But Bobby Jindel, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump all went with the safe answer:  “Ronald Reagan”.

Yes, this cartoon is too complicated and geek-oriented to make a really good political cartoon — ideally a political cartoon ought to have a simple idea conveyed by a powerful image –Â but it gave me a chance to draw some of our current politicians.  And to draw Ronald Reagan as Cthulhu.  I used to enjoy drawing Ronald Reagan.
