Over the last year, I have found many webcomic comrades via twitter and others blog rolls. It is rare though that I find someone else who does editorial cartoons and blogs as well. Alex Raffi is a Nevada illustrator and editorial cartoonist. Check out his site for some great stuff.
The post that really caught my attention as of late was this video he posted of his daughter Elli describing the things she would do to fix the world if she were President.
Only 29 more years Elli and you’ll get my vote.
I especially like the jump rope idea! 🙂
I am partial to the whole “be nice” campaign
she’s cute but can she dance?
Funny you should ask that… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KQgYPZxxZY
She is a little young to head out on the dance floor with you when they play “I will survive”
ooohhh..bearman i’ll get cha for that one! i’m still here ain’t i?
I would like to be the secretary of Candy Decorations! CANDY! 🙂
Darn…I missed my chance.
Maybe you can be the ambassador to Candy Land?!
In response to Lynn’s comment: Elli Dancing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KQgYPZxxZY
Alex your editing job on both is great.
Thanks, I reposted one on my site as well of Elli going to a party with a chicken. I figure it’s good practice. We always need to be doing something. I find it impossible to stop frankly.
why yes, she can!! now i’m impresseed! cute kid alex.
HOw old is she she is sooooooo cute!!!!!
6 at least in the vid
cute vid….this vid may come in handy if she feels so passionate about these things so early…
Imagine if she did end up running one day and this video came out.
The poor people won’t be happy…fit but not happy!
“poor people jump rope for hearts” ….Haven’t they got it bad enough? Make the rich people jump rope or better still….ah never mind !!!
I like her policies. I wonder if she can get on the same ticket with the Voodoo Lady. 🙂
Only if VDL is VP.
that is so cute! hehe
Though im concerned that she thinks that poor people can be helped by jumping rope… haha im with loony on that one.
She is SIX. Geez. Lighten up you two. You were probably the kids in the neighborhood who couldn’t wait to tell the five year olds Santa wasn’t real.
I have always been way smarter for my age… I actualy faked been santa by writing on my little sister christmas cards when i was 8 hehe
Didn’t your sister wonder why Santa penmanship was horrible and girly?
you mean santa’s not real? great.
Santa real…susi and loon just tell us he is not.
Out of the mouths of babes come light thoughts for the rest of us.
Cute stuff. Be nice ya’ll.
Yeah…what he said.
She doesn’t look like a president that any would yell, “You lie!” at real loud.
Unless there is a younger sibling around.
Thanks…good to see you again bar.
How cute is she…she has it all figured out!!!!
Tell me that when she has to do trigonometry
Yowza! Yowza! Yowza!
Thanks for the evening chuckle….She can never be President though, she makes too much sense…
She’s got my vote too. Nice video Bearman, thanks for sharing.
Did presidents make that much sense in your day donald?
Great Blog Donald. I’m sharing this with everyone I know. Thanks for the kind words about my kids video.
She has such a positive out look I would vote for her 🙂
It’s cute that sometimes she says, “When I was the President…” :3
