Luckovich did this cartoon back when Hank Paulson (Bush's Treasurey Secretary) was in charge of bailing out Wall Street..... many are unaware that, prior to becoming Treasury Sec'y, Paulson made millions at Goldman Sachs. Certainly nothing wrong with that, but it does make you wonder if Paulson had a "vested interest" in making sure his Wall Street friends were rescued first.... at tremendous taxpayer expense.
Clearly, that's what Luckovich is trying to convey in this cartoon....
