Dr. Common-Sense's Great Cure

"Dr. Common-Sense's Great Cure,"

“I think what the American people want more than anything is just common sense, smart government. They don’t want ideology, they don’t want bickering.”

(h/t Political Animal)

(Cartoon courtesy of The Library of Congress; reproduction no. LC-DIG-ppmsca-07525; Cartoon shows Uncle Sam comforting a shabbily-dressed man (labeled “American Business”) and pointing to a large sign reading “Dr. Common-Sense’s Great Cure,” featuring a medicine bottle labeled “Courage and Energy.” Drawn during the Great Depression, the cartoonist suggests that business woes reflect a failure of will. [Winsor] McCay is most famous for his comic strip Little Nemo, published from 1905 until 1914, but in later years he was an accomplished editorial cartoonist.
