See You in the Funny Papers

Your LakeCountyEye reported last week that Joe Walsh -- the Tea Party Republican candidate for the Eighth Congressional District -- was cleverly accruing earned media courtesy the comic strip Dick Tracy.
Sent Up by Dick Tracy
Walsh is to periodically appear in Dick Tracy as guest super-villain, The Mad Hatter. Your LakeCountyEye spotted a pantone Walsh in the today's Sunday comics.
Joe Walsh, as seen ...
... in Dick Tracy... in 3D
EagleEyed Operatives may notice that the panel is not much more than a color copy of a panel that appeared in Dick Tracy last Thursday.
Your LakeCountyEye roundly disapproves of this all too common sort of lazy cartooning.

That looks like a photo I took. No request for permission to reprint?
No credit line?
