This cartoon by Steve Brodner about Cindy McCain's migraines

20090925-mccainmigraine.jpg

is accompanied by some insightful commentary:

She says, "For the first time in my life, I'm going to go to Congress, and I'm going to be tenacious and be forceful and be honest and tell them that it's time. If you can give five million dollars to study flatulence in cows and its effects on the ozone layer, you can give me some money for migraine research."

This is a good thing. But it got me wondering: "You want help from the GOVERNMENT now?" I started thinking about Nancy Reagan and her battle for funding for Alzheimer's, Bob Dole and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The minute a personal problem becomes too big for the folks on top, they become like the rest of us: looking for collective action.
