More Tom Toles fandom

I didn't post about this at the time but back on August 27th, 2006, over two months before the midterm elections that saw the Democrats take back Congress, Toles published this cartoon:

Wow. I was stunned. Can you imagine the uproar if a columnist wrote that? But its in a cartoon so, in the eyes of the Village Elders, its not really a threat. There wasn't even a Heartland Institute "How dare you!" comment in the archives.

And Tom couldn't help but gloat a little after the election:

Hmmm. This is dated Nov 21, 2006. How come I can't find it in the Post's archive?

Good question. Odd that it's missing.
GoComics claims to have something on that date if you pay them for it.

Anyone know Mr. Toles's email address?
