That's a Toles cartoon from the Washington Post, October 2010.

Maybe he picked it up from Daryl Cagle's site (www.cagle.com).

Hilarious. Where's this from?

I don't know where it is from originally.  I just new I had seen it somewhere and started Google image searching until I found it.  I'm glad you found it humorous but I also hope you saw how true it is.

It is funny, but it is not particularly accurate. IT is, however what those who pull the strings in the GOP want you to believe. Positive, progressive things actually DO get done when Dems control the Congress. We have 50 years of evidence of the truth of that from 1930-1980. And, 2008-2010 was the most productive two years in this country since 1980.

Yeah.  That's it. Strange though.  The comic depicts Republicans being the problem too.  That seems like an odd thing for the GOP to want me to believe.  :/

Of course I see how true and pathetic it is. That's what makes it funny. As Heinlein identified in his book, A Stranger in a Strange Land, humor includes three elements: surprise, truth, sadness (or in this case, "pathetic-ness" if that's even a word).

What point are you trying to make?  Do you even know or are you just trolling?

THat it is in the interests of those who run the GOP for the average American to believe there is no difference in the outcomes regardless of which party is in power. Since Bill CLinton sold out the unions and delivered the Democrat Party to the same puppeteers who have run the GOP since its inception, the difference between the parties has shrunken immensely, but it is still there. One need only contrast the productivity of the Congress from 2008-2010 with that of those since then to see it. Trump may win this election because the millennials, who just became the largest generation, see, and are the victims of, what a disaster the baby boom generation has made of things, and the establishment they have let take control. THey want no part of it, and if enough of them are willing to vote for a shallow, misogynistic, bullying demagogue, Hillary and that establishment are in big trouble.
