CSotD: Our critical fool shortage

Jen Sorensen points out an unintended consequence of a generational oddity, and I like it for a couple of reasons, but mostly because complaining about the differences between generations triggers a rant that is dear to my heart. Except that she doesn’t use fictional Madison Avenue marketing terms to pigeonhole her characters: She says “older” […]

Ed-Op Cartoons are “A Relic of a Bygone Era”

Last month Jennifer Grygiel advocated that the ease of creating and distributing political memes made it a superior editorial single-shot image than the pen and ink cartoon. With the New York Times canceling the use of one panel editorial cartoons, Jennifer returns to say – so what? Again championing the meme over the cartoon. As […]

CSotD: Blundering towards Armageddon

Pretty sure Chip Bok was not intending to make an argument in favor of cutting Iran a break, but he provides a good stepping-off spot. What actually happened in the Gulf of Hormuz remains undefined, and grainy video of a Revolutionary Guard boat crew removing an unexploded mine from the side of a ship is […]

CSotD: President Caligula

Jeff Danziger teases today’s musical Moment of Zen, and I’ll forgive him for saying “What’s that noise?” instead of “What’s that sound?” because when Buffalo Springfield released the song, he may have been on the other side of the world in Vietnam, and, even if that wasn’t the exact timing, you get my point. As […]

CSotD: Monday Funnies plus a little mo

Today featured a lot of good work on the funny pages, but, just to show I’m not ignoring the current crisis, I’ll start with Non Sequitur, which is good commentary on the Department of Justice. And I’d add that, while I’m not sure of Wiley’s timing on posts, it’s not easy for a comic strip […]

CSotD: Weekend wrap-up

Bruce Plante lays out the top issue of the day. As noted yesterday, the Trump Administration has a self-inflicted lack of credibility, but we’ve managed to lie our way into several wars, and the two World Wars we entered honestly, we entered late and mostly when cornered.   However, not everyone has the same doubts […]

Not Letting a Sleeping New York Times Lie

  Cartoonists and Columnists continue to take the New York Times to task for banning political cartoons from both their domestic and International editions.   Yesterday morning Mike Lynch produced a roundup of some of the cartoonists responses to the abhorrent action taken by “the paper of record”. Mike shows Ann Telnaes complete response (in […]

CSotD: Long time coming and a long time gone

There is a wealth of political cartoon commentary at the moment, and I could do a roundup of everything said on any one of several topics, but I’m going to do more of a roundup of everything, starting with Matt Wuerker‘s summary of the departure of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, that “slightly chunky soccer mom” who […]

Mr. Postman, Look and See, Is There a Letter…

  Hats off to cartoonist This is just a quick opinion from a regular reader that the cartoon by Joe Heller in this week’s Herald-Independent about Bart Starr entering heaven is the best cartoon I have seen anywhere in a decade. Maybe two decades. Huzza Heller.     Cartoon of Mother Goose poem sad example […]

CSotD: In a snarky mood

“Just the place for a Snark!” the Bellman cried,    As he landed his crew with care; Supporting each man on the top of the tide    By a finger entwined in his hair. “Just the place for a Snark! I have said it twice:    That alone should encourage the crew. Just the place for a Snark! […]

Cartoonists React to New York Times Cartoon Ban

  As expected political cartoonists are registering their disgust with the New York Times’ response to a New York Times International editor picking a cartoon that produced some blowback. Above Clay Jones draws his reaction, but also uses his column to explain the good editorial cartoons do for newspapers and society.     Below Joep […]

CSotD: Grey Lady Down

DD Degg having reported the facts of the case, we’ll open the discussion with a Homer Davenport graphic commentary. I couldn’t find information on the “anti-cartoon bill” Senator Platt (foreground) was pushing, but most schoolchildren know the story of Boss Tweed and how Thomas Nast took him down with a barrage of cartoons. There are […]

No More Chappatte or Ed-Op Cartoons for NYTIMES – updated

  From Patrick Chappatte: THE NEW YORK TIMES WILL END ALL POLITICAL CARTOONS I just learned, weeks after they published a syndicated Netanyahu cartoon that caused a scandal. For me, this is the end of an adventure that began 20 years ago. But the stakes are much higher.     In 20-plus years of delivering […]
