CSotD: Trump has a Gore/Quayle moment

You may recall when Al Gore claimed that he invented the Internet and everyone giggled. It became a punchline, and Gore was branded a liar. Except that he hadn’t made the claim and, besides, he genuinely had been a significant sponsor of legislation to advance its development. And Vice President Dan Quayle, on a classroom […]

Political Cartoons and Cartoonists in the News

  Kevin Siers References A Past Master Not news but I enjoyed Kevin Siers tribute to the famous Robert Minor cartoon and using it for a current situation.     Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes Elsewhere someone takes a famous cartoonist’s old cartoon and changes it to please his own political ideology without so much as a fare-thee-well. Something […]

CSotD: Mixed Bag

I don’t expect a coherent theme to emerge today, so we’ll start with a Tank McNamara of great social significance and then see what’s next. I remember when, back well before the Internet or anything like it, the Sporting News would show up on the doorstep with its analysis of the most recent World Series […]

20 Things You Didn’t Know About Dr. Seuss

  You’ve probably been pronouncing “Seuss” wrong. Sorry, but Seuss is not pronounced “Soose.” Instead, Dr. Seuss and his family, who emigrated to the US from Bavaria, pronounce the name “Zoice.”     Seuss collected hats, won a Pulitzer Prize, coined the word ‘nerd’, and more. Marilyn La Jeunesse and Insider present the above and […]

CSotD: The long and short of it

The flow of inspiration from the Trump firehose has been such that I just want to flush it out now, hit Friday Funnies tomorrow, and hope for new things by Saturday. But, before that, Tom the Dancing Bug deserves praise for being able to bundle so much fraud and stupidity into a single, inventive, multi-panel […]

CSotD: Fact Checking the Opinions

I referenced Daniel Patrick Moynihan the other day, who is mostly famous for saying that you are entitled to your own opinions but not to your own facts. Moynihan died in 2003, so he only got to see the initial Newt Gingrich portion of the fact-free revolution, and thus could argue that there are facts […]

Comic Strip of the Day: Smart Humor

I wasn’t planning to run any more Veteran’s Day rain strips, but this L’il Donnie ought not to go unremarked. There have been several strips on the topic, but, as I predicted the other day, even the ones that are above average already feel stale. The outrage was Saturday and, while I noted the barriers […]

100 Years Ago Today: Armistice!

    Paul Berge celebrates the end of The War to End All Wars with a selection of editorial cartoons from 100 years ago. The End was the beginning of cleaning up the mess. Or as Paul puts it: “every party needs its pooper.”     Paul has done an incredible job of following the […]

CSotD: Soldiers in the Rain

David Rowe does have the advantage of a half-day time difference, but I was surprised to find him one of so few to respond instantly to Trump’s decision to skip the 100th Anniversary of the End of WWI because of what is reported to have been a light rain. And it’s a nice merge of […]

Cartoonews*

  Mike Thompson – 20 Years at The Freep Friday marks 20 years since I first walked into the front door of the Detroit Free Press as the new political cartoonist for the premier news organization in the most interesting news town in America. And this city and state has never left me wanting for topics […]

CSotD: Elections are over, back on your heads

Maybe you can see things more clearly from a slight distance, but Canadian cartoonist Michael de Adder once more boils it all down to the essential point, aided, I would note, by the fact that his detailed style makes it possible to capture Bill Murray’s best hangdog expression. Simply citing the movie would have been […]
