Cheney's Heart

I had so much fun with this,  mainly because it was easy to draw and also Cheney, like Palin, is a gift that keeps on giving. My other idea as showing how Cheney got his heart attack (which was finding out that 51 Dems had JUST realized they were a majority).  Since the cable guy was monopolizing my computer, I resorted to the ancient art colored pencils. Later I Photoshopped the X-ray to show heart was cold.

Health Care Shot

If Mitch McConnell actually read the president's reasonable HealthCare plan (only 11 pages!), would he be howling like this? Or is this why he's actually howling - because he so wanted the Dems to fail?

DC Job Fair

Incumbent members of Congress choosing to chuck the whole damn thing seemed like a good area.  I certainly wouldn't want the job - especially now.  The art is so much less than I hoped,  but it's after 10 PM and I'm exhausted.  Maybe I should have gone with the BREAKING NEWS: Tiger Woods To Speak Friday! idea. 
PS Tuesday's toon "HealthCare Forum" was posted on CNN iReports and yielded a very lively on-line discussion among people who politely disagreed with my progressive POV.  I LOVE the internets!

HealthCare Forum

After Obama's stellar performance fielding questions at the recent Repub. conference, Mitch McConnell has second thoughts about televising the long-promised HealthCare Forum event (because Obama is too goddam reasonable).

Hardest thing =  making a gag when the facts are like a gag. 

Since the Repubs are acting like children, I went with the kiddie party.   The sign is a mouthful, I know - but you try it!  My art is lame (That's a cake Pelosi is holding).  I hate labelling  people, so I omitted the obvious.   Thoughts?

Granny's Sex Advice


Before I begin doling out sex advice, I’ll state my qualifications: One, I’m experienced. This will be my 50th year of having sex (not continuously). Two: Granny is no prude – I invented the lap dance in the front seat of a 1957 Chevy at the Olympic Drive-In. Later I was a foot soldier during the sexual revolution. I got crabs at Woodstock so that the next generation of women could enjoy randomly giving away the milk without making him buy the cow. So, please, have some respect.

Fellow women - want to know how to get men to stop hating Valentine’s Day? Make it free. Free him of the torture of buying you a gift or a fancy dinner. Be the first on your block to reward your First Dude with this Get-Out-of-Valentine’s Day-Free Card.


HIM: All he has to do is come home, take a shower and follow you into the bedroom (Believe me you will get no argument).

YOU: All you have to do is all the work; but you’re used to it. Valentine’s Night, you cannot go wrong giving him his own private Victoria’s Secret fashion show. “But Granny,” you’re whining, “what if I look more like Kirsty Ally than Paris Hilton?” Not a problem. Two things all men like (whether they know it or not) - black and lace. Comes in all sizes. Still too fat? There’s an app for that – it’s called the 25-watt bulb.

Trust Granny on this: Spice it up and he will be like putty in your hands and vice versa. After your show, let nature take its course and a good time will be had by all. Spice it up and Valentine’s Day will become BOTH your favorite holiday! Spice it up!  ***

Palin's Crib Notes

So many current events this week that could have been cartoons - but then the MOST recent is always the best.  I'm sure I'm one of many who will be taking off on this delicious idea.  And we're all glad Palin's back!  She can deliver,  at least where comedy is concerned.

Underwear Bomber

After taking criticism for Miranda-ing the Underpants Bomber, I LOVED the recent news that the whacko sang like a bird  after Obama sent for his parents.  So much for Bushie-Woo waterboarding!

Biggest problem was getting 5 people and lots of dialogue into such a small space.  Took me all day.   Now I just noticed the table is wrong. Well, I hope you laugh anyway.

Toyota Recall

Once I settled on the Toyota recall as my event d jour, I toyed with the idea of  a car driving off a cliff and their cell phone playing a message from the Toyota My Car Won't Stop helpline, but that became a joke about the hell of phone menus.

Then I tried Thelma and Louise driving off the cliff, but everybody remembers they were in a Mustang so that was out.

Then I thought about the talking cars in the Disney movie and what they might say. Did I get a chuckle? I hope so.
