Socks and Barney chronicled the 2008 election through the eyes of the Presidential Pets – specifically Bill and Hillary Clinton’s pet cat Socks and George W. Bush’s pet dog, Barney. Chock full of spectacular insights such as “President Bush is an idiot” and “Democrats couldn’t pass the salt with three branches of government”, you too will find yourself – as tens of faithful readers had – commenting to your friends, co-workers and subscribers to your Facebook updates, “Check out this comic. It’s kind of hit or miss and I don’t get the Mitt Romney jokes but look, a talking pig!”
The Socks and Barney comic strip ran from late 2007 until inauguration day in January, 2009.
A collection of Socks and Barney strips was published in 2008.
Steve recently started Socks and Barney up again for 2016. You can see the new strips starting here.
