Imagined cartoon allegiances to presidential candidates

Reflections. Ponies. Reflections and ponies.

AN ARBITRARY LIST OF FORGOTTEN CARTOON PERSONALITIES AND THE CANDIDATE FOR WHICH THEIR VOTE WOULD BE CAST:

I. Phil and Lil’s Mom, Betty DeVille (Rugrats): Obama. Imagine the potential VP Palin telling Nickelodeon’s most adament cartoon feminist what she can and cannot do with her body (and her sweatshirt).
II. Captain Crunch (Captain Crunch Cereal): Ron Paul. The Captain LOVES FREEDOM, and no one but a third party candidate would support his busting through walls in a giant ship. For freedom! And upholding the spirit of the law!
III. My Little Pony (My Little Pony Tales): Obama. The existence of a colorful pony land is predicated on LOVE, BELIEF and yes, HOPE – and by extension, the AUDACITY of it.
IV. Uncle Scrooge (DuckTales): McCain. Uncle Scrooge legitimately swims in his vault of gold coins. Don’t think he’s down with sharing the wealth.
V. Mr. Dink (Doug): Obama. “Health care is very expensie, Douglas.”
