If California was as cool as Glee.

If California was as cool as Glee.
Sacramento can’t decide whether we’re more like Junior High or High School, however. Dems vs the Taxpayer Caucus – RUMBLE! Oh, I do like the slapfights in California politics. Wisconsin is in it to win; we’re in it to flex our muscle, even without the Governator. The Taxpayer Caucus is the newest clique. Tony Strickland,  ...

Obama, pedophile priests, political Cartoons for April, 2010.

Obama, pedophile priests, political Cartoons for April, 2010.
It’s Sunday, so it must be time for the Los Angeles Times Choice Awards! For editorial cartoons, that is! I had to wade through a lot of elephants saying no to Obama (for Supreme Court nominees), and a lot of  Tea Party ridiculers, and of course Sarah Palin haters, before I found these gems. (I ...

Haiti, this is the first time I ever thought about you.

But now I’ll never forget you. The story and images coming from Haiti after the earthquake were so shocking  and grievous that it didn’t even occur to me to do a cartoon about it. I felt that tragedies like  this couldn’t be summed up in an image or drawing. More importantly, that cartoonists would be ...

Two more cartoons I’m glad I didn’t do.

Two more cartoons I'm glad I didn't do.
Both of these cartoons are by Rob Tornoe. Let me start off by saying I LIKE Rob’s cartoons. Didn’t I just link to him in my blogroll? Seems like a good guy, a successful editorial cartoonist, and blogs with Daryl Cagle on Daryl’s popular editorial site, politicalcartoons.com. He’s a friend on Facebook. I like his ...
