Andy Marlette Manipulation
PNJ Cartoonist Andy Marlette is very talented and often his cartoons can be manipulated to fit a different scenario. Case in point-yesterday's edition was a play on Rick Scott, showing Alex Sink as a police woman, stopping Rick Scott (Sink received the PBA endorsement)
Okay, that was funny.
But the same cartoon can be manipulated to be a Play on the Amendment 8 issue. Andy Ford, president of the FEA and Rick Scott look similar enough that I can add a scruffy moustache and beard and some glasses to the character in the above cartoon and turn Rick Scott into Andy Ford, and change the whole nature of the cartoon to make it a play of Alex Sink against the Florida Education Association.
(FEA has endorsed Alex Sink for Governor, but FEA strongly opposes Amendment 8. Alex Sink supports Amendment 8)
