Chuck Asay, 3/26/12:
So Obama kicked the debt can so far down the road's not noticeable anymore? And that's a bad thing because...Asay says so?

Chuck, if the can is "debt" in your metaphor, then if you want to show that "debt" is really important, you can't have it disappear off-panel; it needs to get bigger or heaver, or, in some obvious way, actually do something. This has been your Cartooning 101 lesson for the day.
