Etch-a-Sketch: William 'Dollar Bill' Jefferson Edition

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury: This is a day the Sketchwriter has been awaiting for years. William "Dollar Bill" Jefferson, the former congressman from New Orleans, is going on trial over that "alleged" bribery scheme. I say "alleged" because that's the convention in these cases, and of course he...

Etch-a-Sketch: Hybrid Hummer Edition

Etch-a-Sketch: A New Era for the GOP

Etch-a-Sketch: Jimmy Carter Edition

Thank you for all those excellent Limbaugh jokes yesterday. I loaded up today's column with them, but the editors, God bless 'em, decided every last one of them "crossed the line" and therefore had to be removed. Still, let us not be discouraged. This afternoon, Jimmy Carter will appear before...
