CSotD: Slouching Towards Bedlam

I was almost tempted to simply post Marco De Angelis (Cartoon Movement)‘s cartoon and leave it at that. But I can’t demand cartoonists step up if I fail to. Cartoonists faced a challenge yesterday. The riots called for a quick response and the quick response was “stunned,” which is not an answer.   The standard […]

CSotD: Surprise me

Pros and Cons (KFS) has the funniest commentary on Trump’s phone call today, except that it’s not, having been drawn I dunno how long ago and Kieran Meehan not being, AFAIK, psychic. But I’m giving him credit for the laugh anyway, if only by default. We covered the phone call yesterday and if you’re going […]

CSotD: Put up or shut up time

I couldn’t decide where to start this morning until I had settled on the headline, at which point it made sense to start here: Put up or shut up, Steve Kelley (Creators.) Show your evidence of fraud and illegality. Seriously. Do it. While you’re at it, explain why experienced attorneys and professional politicians who wanted […]

New for ’21: 1925 is Public Domain

As of January 1, 2021 most everything from 1925 entered public domain status.

CSotD: What do we know and how do we know it?

If Ionesco or Becket were writing “The Comic Strip That Has A Finale Every Day,”  this Frazz (AMS) would be the one to endlessly cycle, it being more absurd than dadaesque. Or, at least, it would become absurd if you simply kept cycling it. As it is, it speaks for the prevailing mood, which is […]

CSotD: Happy New Year, if you can find one

Can’t accuse Tim Campbell (WPWG) of sugar-coating things. Granted, we’ve got vaccines now, but even if everyone got them, it would be late spring before we could safely unmask. And given the number of delusional nitwits amongst us, it probably won’t happen that quickly. I was looking around the grocery store the other day. We’re […]

CSotD: It’s Mitchcraft!

There isn’t much to say about Mitch McConnell, and Ann Telnaes (WashPost) appears to have said it all right here. Of course, the ball is still in play, and let’s all admit we didn’t expect the House to come up with a 2/3’s majority to get that $2,000 check back on the field. Nothing is […]

CSotD: Tomorrow’s News Today

(Pia Guerra – The Nib) (Benjamin Slyngstad) I’m starting with a Juxtaposition because I don’t want to single out a particular cartoonist and there have been more than one who have, apparently, jumped to conclusions regarding the Nashville bomber. Or, at the best, commented on those conclusions, which are being leapt to full-force on social […]

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
