Frankenstein (aka Phil Hands) at the Wisconsin State Journal stormed the state capitol today in hopes of persuading movement in the state legislature to ban the so-called "Frankenstein veto."
Not only is it informative via testimony, that Doyle has gradually changed his mind on yanking the veto as it has allowed him amass power over the years and that it's unfair to yank it when the Doyle term is up, but the editorial is damn hilarious.
Imagine a green-headed monster going up the stairs to talk to state Sen. Fred Risser, nodding his head with statements on government reform.
There is a second meaning, however, intentioned or not. The editorial points out state politics for what it is, theatrics.
It's great that the paper is bringing political cartoons to life, kudos to the State Journal and Phil!
