Today's J. Post cartoon

When journalist Yair Lapid announced that he would run at the head of a new political party in the next elections, national media went crazy, devoting massive coverage including polls showing he could win up to 15 seats. The problem? Elections are only scheduled for October 2013, making all this excitement just a wee bit premature.

I originally intended to have the cartoon depict Bibi Netanyahu and Tzipi Livni as owners of horses representing their parties (the Knesset's two current biggest), standing by their horses in a stable or racing stalls and looking miffed while the all the media fawn over the dark horse owned by Lapid, but decided to do this simpler version instead.
Two things I now regret about this drawing: the horse's legs are going too far forward, making it look like he's about to fall over backward, and the bookie's answer sounds more passive than confused--it should have been either "is only in another" or "isn't for another." Oh well.
