Accusations and Apologies

Instagram Removed Pro-Life Comic because “Hate Speech” 4/10/2019 Adam Ford — A week and a half ago I posted a comic I made about abortion to Instagram (the full comic is below). I rarely use Instagram, so after checking the post maybe once or twice that same day, I forgot about it. Well, I opened […]

An UnPresidented Deck of Cards

The crowd funding effort for “the UnPresidented deck” has reached almost, as of this writing, 300% of its stated goal, and still has three days until the project’s call for pledges ends. As the Digital Journal explains: The UNPRESIDENTED deck, like an ancient deck, each suit has unique symbolism as Spades represents the Trump Administration […]

CSotD: Random fits of expertise

Agnes has found a skull which appears to be that of a cow, but she’s convinced herself that it is a fossil and is therefore the skull of a cow dinosaur. Today, under continual questioning from a dubious Trout, she plays the traditional card of the clearly-wrong: A claim of expertise. Where else have you […]

CSotD: Confronting Us With Our Failures

There are times you’d like to just ignore it all and retreat into the funnies, but it’s getting kind of hard to pretend you don’t know what’s going on. Retail isn’t even trying to be political, but, then again, there was a time when the prevailing politics were such that these daily assaults on honesty […]

CSotD: Financial Follies

Steve Sack comments on the Chinese woman who wandered into Mar-A-Lago with some malware and god knows what intentions, which also ties into the administration’s general “It’s okay: He’s with me” attitude towards security clearances. The official response has been “See? We caught her! No problem!” but that’s a damn fool attitude. We in the […]

CSotD: Out of Touch

I’ve been tempted to go one of two directions lately: Either to run an entire day of Joe Biden cartoons or to run an announcement saying “No blog today. There was nothing but Joe Biden cartoons.” Jeff Danziger offers an antidote of sorts. I don’t really think — and I doubt Danziger thinks — that […]

CSotD: The Least Policy

I’ll admit I came to this morning’s blog posting in a negative mood, having trudged through King Features’ new, improved website for the first time, but also-and-mostly having seen enough Joe Biden cartoons in the last 48 hours to last a lifetime.

CSotD: There’s no such word as ‘gullible’

Signe Wilkinson scores with what I’m calling a “Naked Emperor Moment,” wherein someone says what others have had on their minds but didn’t dare bring up. The perfect is the enemy of the good and, while I’m glad to see the DNCC has not pre-approved a candidate in advance this time, the nit-picking does suggest […]
