Sunday morning toons: 2013: Not really a great year to be a kid

If you're a kid you can get shot if you're already in America. And Russia won't let you be adopted here if you're not. Oh yeah -- and milk will probably be $8/gallon next month because congressional Republicans would rather crash the government than give the Kenyan Socialist anything that might somehow be considered a win. Wonderful.

And too bad for that poor diapered little bastard who has to take over for 2013, too.

Today's toons were handed off by some old beareded guy with a scythe from the week's pages at GoComics,, Slate, Time,, Daryl Cagle, and other fine sources.
