When I first started my blog I used to occasionally put up drawings and views that were political. At one point I was in between jobs. I was using a headhunter to find a new ad agency to work for. She would send potential agencies to my website. This way they could look at my work online. I wouldn't have to go to the trouble of sending a portfolio. SEVERAL times the headhunter told me that people loved my work BUT they would go to my blog and read my thoughts about politics and they would tell my headhunter I was too controversial. At first I thought she was kidding but I soon realized she was serious. I was none too happy about this, especially because George Bush was busy totally screwing up the world politically and environmentally. So I stopped the political blogging for a while but now I am back in business. You would think people in advertising are creative and would appreciate someone who was clever and had an opinion. Turns out the opposite is true. I have a sneaky suspicion that people who actually voted for George W. are deep down so furious at him because his blunders have made them look like idiots too. So when they hear any kind of honest opinion about Bush they go into fits. They want us all to stay quiet until George fades into history as a failure. The only problem is two years is a long time for all of us to have to wait.
