It Hurts Too Much To Laugh… December 16, 2008

Now that impeachment proceedings are formally underway in the Illinois House and the Senate has initiated a process of formulating rules in anticipation of a possible impeachment trial, I’ve seen my disposition sour markedly during these past couple of days at the State Capitol.

Which also brings to mind one of most decent and distinguished Illinois politicians in history, the late Senator Adlai Stevenson, who infamously cited Lincoln when he conceded defeat to Dwight Eisenhower in 1952, saying “It hurts too much to laugh, but I’m too old to cry.”

Testing that principle today on the Chicago Sun-Times’ front page is the legendary political cartoonist Jack Higgins. Higgins and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution‘s Mike Luckovitch are the best, and the SJ-R‘s Chris Britt is no slouch either, as evidenced by today’s offering.

Click ’em and weep.
