Today, Tom Tomorrow brings us Biff and Wanda, the blow-dried anchorpeople of "Action McNews." The ' toon "anchors" receive reportage from correspondents on the convention floor or the convention environs. The best of these losers is Betty McBettie who interviews herself. Tom Tomorrow isn't makin' this stuff out of nothin'. To wit: on "Meet The Press" yesterday, Big Love flip-flopped on his campaign pledge to repeal Obamacare in its entirety and
-Biff- David Gregory did not call Big Love out for this craven behavior. On a side note: today's 'toon kept faith with a traditional ending cut to a commercial break. ("Now, these messages!") If this is a (fair & balanced) example of life imitating art, so be it.
