[Ads-l] missing cartoon

I was searching for a New Yorker carton that I could nominate retroactively
as the 2016 QOTY.

But it's nowhere. The New Yorker Archives won't find it. Google won't find
it. I believe it was in the issue in which *all* the cartoons related to a
certain candidate.

OK, it's the Founding Fathers, right?  And they're sitting around the table
with the Constitution. And John Adams or somebody asks Jefferson,

"But what if some day a madman takes over, and nobody can do anything [or
maybe "stop him"] , because it's all kind of funny?"

Can any one find the precise caption?

I don't know the name of the artist, who should get a Pulitzer

"If the truth is half as bad as I think it is, you can't handle the truth."
