Who did this political cartoon?

Looking for a political cartoon in which a gay Republican is asked about how he arrived at his political identity, and he eventually answers, "I'm in a high tax bracket." I remember it as a Tom Tomorrow or possibly Ted Rall cartoon from the late '90s or early '00s, but so far I've had no luck in Googling for it.

Hm. If the exact punchline was "I'm in a high tax bracket." then that sounds like a Doonesbury flourish to me, and blueberry's is not the right one.

That said, I have no clue how to search old comic strips by word. This is a need that the web has not yet filled!

I remember a Tom Tomorrow strip which that exact line was the punchline. The penguin (forgot his name) was talking to the gay republican. I'm pretty sure this was the late 90's. Sorry I don't have more details.

Thanks for corroborating my memory, Dr-Baa; I made a more thorough search of the This Modern World archives and found it. Here's the strip:

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and tips!
