Catchy Caption of the Day
Polical Cartoonist Thomas Nast produced this in 1871 for Harper's Weekly magazine as a satire of the Tweed Ring in New York. The question was "Who Stole the People's Money." According to the magazine:
In July 1871, The New York Times ran a series of news stories exposing massive corruption by members of Tammany Hall, the Democratic political machine in New York City run by William "Boss" Tweed.
This is among the most famous of Nast's cartoon. I thought of it while reading about the Herman Cain issue in which Cain first blamed the media, then blamed members of the Perry campaign who, in turn, blamed the Romney campaign.
