CSotD: Running with the Red Queen

  The joke being that, while some of us ran as fast as we could, some of us didn’t run at all, and so here we are in the same place as we started. I’d laugh, if I didn’t have a niece in Florida who tested positive despite being vaccinated. She’s okay; For nearly all […]

CSotD: Kicking the stone

Rabbits Against Magic (AMS) establishes today’s theme with a joke that should make you weep rather than laugh. Facts are facts and opinions are opinions, but truth seems to waver somewhere in the middle, and saying “seems” only emphasizes the uncertainty. There are limits: When George Berkeley wrote that reality was only what our minds […]

CSotD: Contextual Comix

Timing is part of context, at least to the extent that, had this Rubes (Creators) run in December, it wouldn’t have taken me so long to get the joke. Not saying that’s a bad thing or a good thing. There’s nothing wrong with making an extra demand or two of your audience, and I probably […]

Fighting the Q Fight – Ben Garrison Profiled

When the Pulitzer Prize Board announced in June that no one would receive its annual award for excellence in editorial cartooning, many political artists were outraged. The decision seemingly made no sense, especially since so many cartoonists thought they produced great work throughout a hectic year. The finalists themselves felt insulted. But elsewhere, there were […]

CSotD: Knaves and Fools

Jack Ohman (WPWG)’s phrasing differs slightly from Ron White’s classic bit, which is also a reflection on the current state of medical science. The nice thing about that video clip is that White, a veteran of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, cannot possibly be dismissed as a liberal. Which means even rock-ribbed rightwingers should listen […]

Conservative Views on View: Ramirez and Stantis

In the new CounterCast conservative cartoonist Scott Stantis (admitted Never-Trumper) interviews conservative cartoonist Michael P. Ramirez (admitted anti-stupid). Michael opines on conservatism (rational realism), liberalism (emotions), Free trade (good), socialism (bad), Trump (lifting regulations, yeah; tariffs, boo), among other topics –  for instance: the cult of personality, vs. conservative principles. Watch the half hour interview […]

CSotD: Tragedy tomorrow, comedy tonight

The political stuff today is mostly awful, so we’ll deal with that tomorrow and just go for silliness, starting with Bizarro (KFS), an exploration of the wonderful world of poop signs. I don’t know what there is about dog poop that makes sign painters become so illiterate, but, besides this, there are also a number […]

CSotD: Can you hear me now?

Juxtaposition of the Day (Steve Brodner)   (Ann Telnaes)   (Kevin Siers) As the expression goes, one should never miss a good opportunity to shut up, and sometimes less is more. I’ve seen a couple of cartoons about yesterday’s Jan 6 Hearing that tried to be clever and to make a point, and they seem […]

CSotD: Turn on your TV now!

We usually associate Jack Davis with TV Guide, but Steve Brodner is taking on the role this morning, because the January 6 Hearings will be starting at roughly 9 AM Eastern, or about the time I file. So if you haven’t got your TV on, flip it on now and start watching. I’m assuming that […]

CSotD: Witnesses for the Defense

A bit of political catching up, and Ann Telnaes expresses what I hope is a wider frustration with the lack of accountability for the architects of the insurrection. There was a fair amount of frustration over the fellow who only got eight months in prison for his part in the uprising, and it’s understandable in […]

CSotD: Small things that amuse my small mind

I’m going to start with something substantive before moving on to trivia today. I don’t entirely disagree with Mike Lester (AMS), but, then again, I don’t entirely agree with him, either. The more argumentative point is that, from my side of things, we are paying for the Pigs in Space Race, based on the way […]

CSotD: A Variety of Disputations

REMINDER TO CARTOONISTS: There are still three or four of you who have not yet drawn your cartoon of the Olympic Rings supplanted by the coronavirus. Please submit them before the Games have ended.  Meanwhile, Michael Ramirez (Creators) cuts to the chase, or such chase as there is. Cities vie to host the Olympics and […]

CSotD: Facts, opinions, truth, illusion and loyalties

Matt Wuerker (Politico) outlines a glitch in a free society, or at least in this one, which is that Power can still gain an advantage by keeping its populace frightened and insecure. The easier to eat you with, my dear. And, in a capitalist system that does not rein in monopolies or keep private enterprise […]
