CSotD: One week more before the storm

Oct 27, 2020 by Mike Peterson

Next Tuesday, it will all be over but the shouting. And the recounting. Expect both. Clay Jones (Ind) expresses the weariness I think most people are feeling at this point, perhaps because Dear Leader began running for re-election about five minutes after taking the oath of office.   As Ann Telnaes (Washington Post) notes, everything […]

CSotD: Trump moves well, but too late

Oct 26, 2020 by Mike Peterson

Chris Riddell (The Guardian) lays down the reality facing Donald Trump, though it also explains in part why Republicans will no doubt put in an extra effort to find flaws in mail-in ballots in order to exclude them.   Which brings to mind this David Horsey (Seattle Times) cartoon from the hanging chad debacle in […]

CSotD: Sunday Funnies, ’cause so little is

Oct 25, 2020 by Mike Peterson

Perhaps it seems this way from the far shores of Australia, but I don’t think many US cartoonists are echoing Alan Moir (Sidney Morning Herald)‘s view. From the beginning, Trump has offered far too much for the opposition and far too little for the loyalists, leaving a very thin slice in which to be thoughtful. […]

CSotD: Whole lot of shakin’ up goin’ on

Oct 24, 2020 by Mike Peterson

Robert Ariail (AMS) has it right: The Republicans are beginning to admit to themselves that Trump is highly unlikely to survive on Nov. 3. And the photos on the windowsill are a nice touch, because Dear Leader has always been more concerned with Dear Leader than anyone else, but we knew that, and, more to […]

CSotD: Friday Funnies – Of Time and the River and Garlic Bread

Oct 23, 2020 by Mike Peterson

Lead time can be as amusing as the comics themselves, and however long ago she filed this Half-Full (AMC),  Maria Scrivan — one of the nicest cartoonists in the world — makes an inadvertent Jeffery Toobin joke. I have some sympathy for Toobin, because I often just restart my phone to get some persistent app […]
