As the newsreader in the cartoon says, according to the Mayan Calendar, the world will end on December 21, 2012. Cartoonist Joe Heller from the Green Bay Press-Gazette uses this piece of information to comment on the U.S. political calendar. With several months of Republican primaries followed by the conventions in June and July, and the presidential election in November, everyone will be fed up and wanting it all to end long before December!
