Worth thousands of words

Jeff MacNelly died far too young in June 2000. Jonathan Burack’s thoughtful message sent me in search of a site featuring the work of the late, great creator of the immortal “Shoe” cartoon strip and its memorable cast of characters including Perfessor Cosmo Fishhawk and Senator Batson D. Belfry.
As Burack recalls, MacNelly also composed editorial cartoons of incomparable wit. The “Shoe” site maintains an editorial cartoon library featuring MacNelly’s work. Here’s MacNelly’s take on the Clinton/Gore relationship, dating from June 1999, with insight into both Clinton and Gore:
