CSotD: Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

There are a lot of environmental cartoons out there and perhaps there is some shift in public perception. However, I’m not prepared to say “Now they get it!” until I see more proof. But Pat Bagley lays out the situation without predicting what will happen next, and he’s on firm ground. Let’s begin with the […]

CSotD: Is Chickenhawk-By-Proxy a thing?

“The war now is away back in the past, and you can tell what books cannot. When you talk, you come down to the practical realities just as they happened. … There is many a boy here today who looks on war as all glory, but, boys, it is all hell. You can bear this […]

CSotD: Opinions, and other things everyone has

I’ve got nothing against Steve Breen and am only using his cartoon because he makes a specific claim that can be argued against. The more-than-half-a-dozen other cartoons on the topic simply accuse the New York Times of being incompetent and rushing to be unfair to Brett Kavanaugh without actually explaining how. When someone screams “I […]

CSotD: Picture This

Wallace the Brave is off to have a terrible picture taken of himself. I remember having a school photo taken and then, two months later, getting to see how horrible it was. School photographers now offer “retake days” for those whose pics were truly ghastly, and I can pick out three or four of my […]

CSotD: Catching up with reality

Starting with a blank panel this morning because I don’t want to single anyone out, nor do I want to run a half-dozen or more cartoons all pointing out that Bernie Sanders sure does talk loud. I guess they hadn’t noticed before. When I moved back East a little over 30 years ago, Bernie was […]

Young Editors on The State of Ed-Op Cartooning

Editor and Publisher recently asked a couple of young editors for their thoughts on the recent firings of editorial cartoonists by a few newspapers. Firing editorial cartoonists for their controversial art not only violates their right to free speech, but it robs the public of the full story. What newspapers choose to publish, or not […]

CSotD: Reality Checks

Bizarro offers more politics than usual, but maybe this has been on Wayno’s mind as much as it’s been on mine. This meme from Occupy Democrats has been popping up regularly on my feeds. I don’t trust the group — they rarely give sources for their frantic accusations and, as with most of the ones […]

CSotD: Plus ça change

Michael Ramirez salutes the victory of Osama bin Laden, who managed to both undermine our freedom and to keep us firmly in his grasp nearly two decades later. Not sure that was the intent of the cartoon, but look around. Our misplaced priorities are based on pre-existing, irrational Islamophobia, given a semi-rational basis by the […]

CSotD: Unreliable narrators

One thing you learn early on in the opinionating business is that if you express yourself in anything longer than a single sentence, you’re likely to be surprised at what readers pick up on. The other thing you should learn is that being clever almost never works. It’s good that Jen Sorensen is, for all […]

CSotD: Cold Fries on the Doorstep, I couldn’t take one more step

I’m a Houston Texans fan, so I was up late watching Monday Night Football last night, which gives today’s Moderately Confused a little extra punch. I’ve seen the ads for boxes of ingredients that let you make your own meals without shopping and, depending on the cost, that could make sense, though having it happen […]

CSotD: Peanuts Envy

Bob Gorrell accuses Democrats of a double standard when it comes to truth and accuracy. I can’t agree. I’m not a Biden supporter, but his gaffes tend to be immaterial. And let’s remember that it was the Amazon-owned Libtard Fake News Washington Post that examined his story of the soldier and the medal and exposed […]

Dave Astor’s E&P Syndicate News Archives

  For 25 years, from 1983 to 2008, David Astor reported on the newspaper syndicates for Editor & Publisher. Alan Gardner, the creator of this Daily Cartoonist site, called David “the founding father of syndication reporting.” Every week David reported on comic strips and political cartooning and puzzles and columnists syndicated to newspapers, both upfront […]

CSotD: Sunday Roundup

Kal Kallaugher opines on the mystifying Mitch McConnell, who apparently doesn’t like being called “Moscow Mitch,” but, as Kal notes, refuses to allow a vote on legislation to protect the security of our election system from Russian meddling. It is a puzzlement, indeed. I was watching the Netflix series on Bobby Kennedy yesterday. It’s very […]

CSotD: Sharpie ripostes

The Sharpie explosion has largely proven that the first gag that comes to you is likely going to be drawn by several other people as well. That makes it an irresistible prompt but a daunting challenge.   The first cartoon I saw of using the Sharpie to raise approval rates or otherwise monkey with charts […]
