I apologize for that extremely misleading post title.
I had this super idea to find one debate cartoon for each election year starting with Gerald Ford v. Jimmy Carter in 1976, when debates started being televised annually. But older political cartoons that are actually humorous are remarkably difficult to find.
Then I tried to find one screen shot of one debate per election year but I got really tired of looking at pictures of salt-and-pepper men.
But I don’t want to leave you with nothing, so let us distract ourselves from this abysmal election with a little flash-video nostalgia.
