CSotD: So what?

I haven’t done an exact count, but there appear to be approximately a kabillion political cartoons this morning explaining that the technical failures in reporting the results of the Iowa Caucus show that the Democrats are doomed, Trump will win and we can all go home now. Only Pat Bagley draws my point of view, […]

CSotD: The Kansas/Missouri Act and other evidence

Matt Wuerker admittedly picks a bit of low-hanging fruit on this one, going for an obvious commentary on a ridiculous Trump blunder, but it beats hell out of the more obvious, less detailed wisecracks involving a Sharpie and harking back to Dear Leader’s ridiculous re-drawing of a weather map. Both play upon the fact that […]

Bruce Plante Ends Cartoon Caption Contest

After five years and more than 300 caption-less cartoons, Bruce Plante and the Tulsa World have decided to end their Cartoon Caption Contest. Bruce Plante told The Daily Cartoonist that participation from amateur gag writers in the area was not as it had been in prior years, that he could use a free day during […]

CSotD: Silence in the Courtroom

I’ve complained about cartoonists taking their own sweet time to respond to breaking news but there was no such problem Friday, as the GOP Senators voted, as RJ Matson puts it in an echo of Watergate, not to hear any witnesses or see any evidence. He’s not the only cartoonist to summon the ghost of […]

Koterba, Plante, Zyglis Traded to Lee Enterprises

Lee Enterprises has bought the Berkshire Hathaway (BH Media Group) newspapers. After managing the BH newspapers for 18 months Lee Enterprises now takes ownership of all the BH newspapers, including The Buffalo News.

CSotD: Everybody’s got something to sell

Jack Ohman starts us off today by pointing out that Republican complaints that John Bolton is only offering to testify in order to sell books might be more compelling if they weren’t defending the biggest snake-oil salesman, grifter and shameless profiteer in major politics since the Teapot Dome. Trump also sells books, and, as Ohman […]

CSotD: Another Century, Another Deal

Dave Granlund picks up on an odd co-inky-dink in Trump’s magnificent “Deal of the Century,” which sounds like something Monty Hall should emcee but instead has been presented by an American president under impeachment and an Israeli prime minister under indictment. All this while Trump’s party back home is explaining that we shouldn’t let John […]

CSotD: Can I Get a Witness?

Tom Tomorrow scores in an increasingly difficult sector of the editorial cartooning world. Altie cartoonists like him, like Tom the Dancing Bug, Matt Bors, Jen Sorensen, have carved out a niche in which they use multi-panel cartoons to make a point through reductio ad absurdum fantasies. It was an easier gig back when politics and […]

Phil Hands, Editorial Cartoonist and More

The Wisconsin State Journal proudly proclaims of Phil Hands: We’ve got a full-time editorial cartoonist. Of course a full time newspaper cartoonist does more than political cartoons. Phil, who also handles our letters to the editor, creates three to four editorial cartoons for us each week, and at least one of those is syndicated nationally […]

CSotD: Rules of Engagement

 (Mo)     (Clay Jones) Two of the more engaged people I know express outrage over those who are not engaged. Jones, as is his wont, accompanies his cartoon with an essay on the topic of willful, deliberate ignorance, noting appropriately that it’s one thing for Deplorables to remain ignorant of the charges against their […]

CSotD: Choosing to choose, or not

Mike Marland anticipates the New Hampshire Primary, coming up February 11. According to 538, Bernie has a comfortable lead at the moment, with Biden in second place and Buttigieg and Warren in a statistical tie. Bernie is our hometown boy, and his strength here should be balanced against whatever happens in Iowa, where he’s less […]

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 […]
