And if a frog had wings he wouldn’t bump his ass on the ground so much.
Though I guess a half-sloshed man leaning on a bar to stay upright as he half-yells to anyone who will listen that he knows how to fix all the problems is an even better representation of editorial cartoons than this was.
Oh, look at Gary trying to sneak in this idea that it’s the Obama administration that’s declared a war on women and the middle class. Nice try, Gary.
And really, does it matter if 140+ airstrikes are referred to as ‘war’ or not? Shit’s getting done, so sit down.
A cartoonist from Singapore has a very strong opinion about Scottish independence. For some reason.
And he’s presented it in such a classy way.
*upper middle class fucker voice* But you have [one nice thing] so how are you poor
never forget, that this is a real screen shot.
And let’s not forget about that oh-so-wonderful invention known as the credit card, and our collective acceptance of spending money you don’t have on hand/in your bank account as being a perfectly rational, and almost expected, action.
Why would ISIL need to come to America when provoking us into ramping up military action abroad (which perfectly aligns with their goal of causing economic damage to us) is attainable while staying on their home turf at a much lower cost of resources and time?
In other words, it’s easier to behead journalists and release the videotapes online than it is to travel to America and carry out a suicide bombing or plane hijacking or whatever, and the results will be equivalent either way. So yes, Ebola is more likely to reach America than ISIL is.
How are we supposed to ever ‘win’ the War on Terror (or, more realistically, carry out an efficient offensive) if it’s only viewed as a traditional war between competing military powers aiming for invasion and conquest? Benson should know better, and if she does but still produced this cartoon (perhaps to scare readers into accepting a premise she herself does not) then she is scum.
Editorial cartoonists are a lazy, uninspired lot who recycle the lamest attempts at jokes and art because they can’t be bothered to come up with anything new.
A good cartoon.
I have no strong opinion about the issue of Scottish independence (my gut feeling is they should do it just because it would be cool for them to be a fully independent country and because the concept of ‘kingdoms’ is archaic and should be relegated to the past), but I am curious to…
No one is concerned about Britain going crazy and nuking everything, while everyone should be afraid of America going crazy and nuking everything.
Though there has been a lot of coverage of the royal family lately.
As for American cartoonists weighing in, most are of the noncommittal “This is a thing in the news” variety, but here’s a couple
I have no strong opinion about the issue of Scottish independence (my gut feeling is they should do it just because it would be cool for them to be a fully independent country and because the concept of ‘kingdoms’ is archaic and should be relegated to the past), but I am curious to see so many American editorial cartoonists pooh-pooh the idea out of hand.
Are they motivated by concerns about the economic thornbush independence would pose, or do they have some perverse concern for Britain’s global standing? Are they worried America’s BFF will look weaker if they lose another part of their former empire (forgetting that it was us who sort of kickstarted that trend)?
I suppose it’s that as America has grown into the dominant world power a sympathy for (let’s call it) tyranny in its myriad forms has crept into parts of our national psyche. I suppose that would also explain the fascination with the royal family.
Do you want to be a newspaper cartoonist, but you’re too lazy to come up with hackneyed quips seven days a week? Just become an editorial cartoonist, then you can get away with doing it a couple days a week.
So Putin created Obama as a kid and… Ukraine shot first?
at least it’s a safe call that dubya is the jar-jar of presidents.
I don’t think it’s fair to expect people to remember the prequels.
