Kabuki You, Kabuki Me

This blogger is not versed in Japanese culture, or any other culture, for that matter. However, the back-and-forth between the POTUS 44 and the Dumbos at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue is the equivalent of dance-drama. The performers recite predictable statements and dance in predictable ways. Tom Tomorrow, this blog's cartoonist-in-residence, captures the dance-drama of our time. We careen from the Fiscal Cliff to the Debt Limit and Fiscal Cliff II lurks just offstage. If this is a (fair & balanced) demonstration of enormous range of skills in visual and vocal performance, so be it.
