CSotD: Explanations and other wasted efforts

Stuart Carlson may have the best perspective on the impeachment trial and the public. One continuing flaw in the liberal game plan is the notion that people will respond to logic, and it’s a misunderstanding of human nature that goes at least as far back as Jimmy Carter, who thought that, if he explained the […]

CSotD: What did they not know and how do they not know it?

I’d like Mike Smith‘s cartoon better if he had widened the scope, because we’d be in a different situation if Dershowitz were the only character in the drama who does not appear to have read the basic document.   Though, to be fair to Dershowitz, he has a long record — as Nick Anderson points […]

Paw Print: The World of Peter Waldner

Peter Waldner usually keeps a sketch pad within arm’s reach: in his car, on a bedside table, for whenever inspiration strikes. “I’m still old school,” he explained during a recent interview at his Worthy Way studio. “In the middle of the night, I’d jot ideas down and the next morning I’d read it and have […]

CSotD: Racing With The Lion

I’m going to reach across the sea to start the day, with a Chris Riddell cartoon that, in fact, ran a few days before the Impeachment Trial began. Not only is the whole world watching, but the whole world knows what they’re watching. And I suppose we should know, too, but seeing it unfold yesterday […]

CSotD: Homework is 90% of your grade

  I’m not necessarily standing behind anything today, but I’m promoting the idea of doing your damn homework, so I got a laugh out of Ann Telnaes’ reaction to a new federal policy cutting back on people working at home rather than at a desk in an office. As she notes, Dear Leader is more […]

CSotD: Decisions and opinions, mostly bad

Pat Bagley takes on the new guidance from the Trump administration that it is no longer required for schools to serve nutritious meals anymore, a reversal of First Lady Michelle Obama’s work to help improve children’s health which, others have noted, was announced on her birthday. Not sure if the timing was a coincidence of […]

“Feiffer On Nixon” in the Trump Era

  “It’s déjà vu all over again.” – Yogi Berra So Michael Tisserand took 1974’s Feiffer On Nixon down from the shelf… Recently, I re-read Feiffer on Nixon while, in the background, live impeachment proceedings played over my computer. It produced a feeling that, at least for a short time, mimicked a sense of calm. […]

CSotD: The Book Nook

Patrick Chappatte’s summary expulsion from the NYTimes’ International Edition drew a lot of attention last June. For those who missed it, some cloth-eared wretch selected an editorial cartoon that, while essentially just accusing Trump of following Israeli leader Netanyahu like a blind man being led by a dog, contained some dubious imagery that, if it […]

Marshall Ramsey, Drawing His Own Conclusions

Marshall Ramsey gets a nice two and a half minute segment on WJTV. Marshall Ramsey creates not only words but thoughts and ideas and opinions – mostly his – in our minds with the cartoons he creates. Some of the situations he draws are so obvious they fall right out of the sky – sort […]

CSotD: I slalomly swear

I’m generally inclined to snicker derisively when a whole bunch of cartoonists go tearing off on the same topic, but this is different, mostly because (A) it matters a whole lot and (B) it’s not the usual dribs and drabs over a couple of weeks but a sudden rush of all-but-simultaneous commentary. And, BTW, it […]
