CSotD: Overthinking the Funnies

Today’s Zits (KFS) stopped me in my tracks, not because it’s funny, which it is, but because my first response after that dissolved into uncertainty: What would you — as Jeremy and his buds — play for a dance at a retirement community? First of all, not the stuff your parents always have on the […]

CSotD: C’est le weekend

Wasn’t sure where to start today, but once the headline suggested itself, it became obvious this Pearls Before Swine (AMS) was the obvious opener, since Franglais gives editors the collywobbles. Regular readers know my opinion that about 97% of people who obsess over grammatical rules cannot write their names in the dirt with a stick, […]

CSotD: Interesting Times

  (Editor’s Note: There is no Chinese curse “May you live in interesting times.” However, these are certainly interesting times.) We’ve already discussed Trump’s — or the RNC’s — scam of hiding pre-checked boxes turning one-time donations into recurring contributions that drained MAGAt bank accounts. In that entry, I said his supporters were unlikely to […]

CSotD: Mostly humor

We’ll get to the funny pages in a minute, but here’s Ann Telnaes (WaPo)‘s take on Mitch McConnell’s latest. McConnell stating that corporations should stay out of politics, and his immediate clarification that he didn’t mean they shouldn’t donate, drew several editorial cartoons in response. Telnaes’ piece stands out because of its economy: She trusts […]

CSotD: Gaetzenfreude

Some headline writer at the New York Times has won the Captain Obvious award for that one, though I prefer Ann Telnaes (WaPo)‘s graphic take on things, which, in turn, is partially inspired by a ghastly, hilarious, horrifying Bulwark piece by Charlie Sykes, headlined “Lordy, There Were Hula Hoops.” And, lordy, there were. That NYTimes […]

Ladies Night at The Daily Cartoonist

Her linework has this playful energy, and she has a masterful talent for playing with tone in different ways, even as her work shifts from moving personal stories to deep political analysis to elegant and perfectly structured gag cartoons.

CSotD: Free Space

Easter Monday is a bit slack, but that gives me a free space in which to indulge in picking up some things yesterday’s Georgia rant distracted me from, like Sunday’s Non Sequitur (AMS). And I’ll disagree with Wiley’s take, but only because our situations seem reversed: If my pup gets out without her cable attached, […]

CSotD: The Umpires Strike Back

Ed Hall starts us off with this analysis of how Major League Baseball has learned to be fair to Black players and, ultimately, to Black people. But now the umpires are conferring, arguing over what seemed like a clear shot over the centerfield fence.   To repeat an astonishing 1921 cartoon from the other day, […]

CSotD: Saturday Morning Cartoons

While I agree generally with Kate in Grand Avenue (AMS), one of the specific things the weekend means is that I don’t do laundry, because that’s the day all the people who work are crowding the laundromat. But, having retired, Saturday means two things: The post office closes at noon and there will be more […]
