Hiatus (if anyone cares)

With Iraq and Benghazi and Hillary Clinton and the Cheneys dominating the newscycle right now, it’s as if we’re in the summer rerun season. Perfect timing for me, because my laptop (which I bought less than a year ago) is already a piece of shit that can’t open most web-browsers or run Skype properly.

So as I take steps to adapt, minimizing my time online and cutting out non-essential things, I’m going to take a break with this Tumblr. I doubt anyone will be too put out (A Good Cartoon has far more followers and gets far more reblogs, which is just fine by me), but I’m posting this here just in case anyone wondered ‘Hey, it’s been weeks since this updated. What gives?’

Let’s do to the Redskins brand what white people already did to the Native Americans.

A good suggestion.

Any other hack would have at least drawn Iraq, maybe show it splintered and broken into several pieces. Gorrell can’t even muster that much effort for his job.

I mean, you can tell he didn’t draw this because who would bother to draw the rivers and pinpoint a a handful of cities?

And just to put this out there: I am both astounded and not surprised that the people who led us into Iraq or just stood on the side and cheerleaded the idea are now oblivious to why Iraq is a giant mess of religious fanaticism and Islamic terrorism.

"Because you are still a self-entitled douchetard who can’t relate to or understand 99% of Americans."

A good cartoon.

(Also, what’s with this cliche of people reading the newspaper in bed, at night? Who does that?)

Just something that came to me after watching the latest Wheel of the Worst a couple times.

Oh, if only they were really this interesting.

An interesting read.

Been a while since I’ve seen any cartoons from Terry Wise. Wonder if he retired, too lazy to investigate.

I’m probably not going to feature any cartoons related to the Sergeant Bergdahl story. There have been a few parroting the right-wing talking point that Sgt. Bergdahl was a deserter/traitor, but most have been going after Obama for negotiating a trade for him. (Branco made one hitting both points.)

And I don’t have anything much to say about this story. I don’t know all the details, but the way the Right is eager to play up his capture as desertion just so they can hammer Obama over his release is disgusting. And as others have said, if Obama hadn’t secured his release Republicans would be saying he left an American soldier in enemy hands. It’s political opportunism either way.

Not an editorial cartoon, not at all shitty. I love Invisible Bread, it’s become one of my favorite strips.
