CSotD: The Jokes, they write themselves

Ivanka Trump is out to destroy political cartoonists, though Pat Bagley is willing to rise to the job of bailing water with a pitchfork. Ivanka’s first move was to accept a job promoting the idea that, if you are unemployed, what you should do to solve your problem is get a job. And, if you […]

Cartoonist Ben Garrison Remains Newsworthy

As we reported yesterday a months old Ben Garrison cartoon recently brought the cartoonist into the spotlight when White House aide Dan Scavino used the political cartoon in a concerted effort by the White House to undermine public confidence in Dr. Anthony Fauci. That has resulted in some media outlets profiling Ben, like The Daily […]

CSotD: Laughter is the Best Quackery

Yes, it’s Bastille Day, and Arlo & Janis are celebrating in their backyard, which is where everyone celebrates these days. However, Arlo treads a fine line in saying “No one actually knows” if French fries were invented in Belgium, because the Belgians not only know but if this lockdown ever eases up, you can go […]

CSotD: Monday Roundup

Not sure I should lead with Joe Heller’s reminder. I don’t want people freaking out and leaving before they’re enjoyed my pearls of wisdom. Still, the new, improved tax deadline is Wednesday, so if you haven’t filed yet, you’d better get hopping. I was just re-reading a Sunday business feature I wrote years ago about […]

CSotD: The Parable of the Bad Shepherd

Phil Hands leads off today with a narrow accusation I want to expand into a continuing theme. The refusal to wear masks, or, more broadly, the refusal to take Covid-19 seriously, requires a level of gullibility that should boggle the mind. That is, it’s not just “bad science.” The anti-vaxxers can at least string together […]

CSotD: Substituting Stories for Statutes, and other follies

Marty Two Bulls certainly has standing to make this observation, but I would point out that he’s saying something less about “cancel culture” and more about honest history. That’s not to say that a frank reassessment of our history might not require some adjustments, including settling some land claims in the case of Indians, and […]

CSotD: Bread and Stones

Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? — Matthew, 7:9 I agree with Ann Telnaes. It is unconscionable that employers can provide health coverage but limit it to only the care they deem moral. As a recovering Catholic, I’ve always felt persuasion was a more defensible tactic than […]

CSotD: If you go right, you’ll be left

Today’s headline is from an old joke, one that struck me as funny at an age when I wasn’t quite old enough for more sophisticated wordplay: Woman: Where is the platform for the 8 o’clock train? Attendant: If you go left, you’ll be right. Woman: Don’t be impertinent! Attendant: All right. If you go right, […]

CSotD: Fighting Hate With Homework

Here are the most recent two days at Prickly City, and whether or not this is going to be a week-long story arc, Scott Stantis has already outlined the dilemma facing thoughtful conservatives. It’s that whole thing about whether it’s nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageously offensive blathering or […]

Lalo Alcaraz Partners With The Republicans

The Lincoln Project is hitting Donald Trump again—this time partnering with a well-known Latino cartoonist from Los Angeles who never thought he would work with Republicans. The group made up of veteran Republican strategists, who have endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for president, partnered on a political cartoon with pioneering artist Lalo Alcaraz, who created La […]

CSotD: Minding Our P’s and Q’s

Kal Kallaugher makes the best use I’ve seen of the two lawyers who freaked out (again?) because people were marching up the private road next to their property en route to the mayor’s house. Which long sentence I employ because of all the people who have spoken up to defend the couple, misrepresenting the nature […]
