Santorum's Trouble with Evolution.

Higgs the cat would be able to straighten this guy out. The caption is a quote from Republican candidate Rick Santorum, tacked onto a New Yorker cartoon.

Santorum's Trouble with Evolution.

Here's a reader question that came in today.

"Why do so many have trouble with people who have trouble with evolution??"

Here's my answer: Because some of them are running for president. This cartoon above is from the New Yorker, but with a Rick Santorum quote substituting for the caption. It's part of a whole hilarious series you can read here. Higgs the cat would be able to straighten this guy out.
