Obama Visits Afghanistan

First he tackled healthcare Reform! Then he decided F the Repubs, he's going to make recess appointments! And today he's off to Afghanistan! Wow! This man is my hero!

Had a really hard time drawing the teabagger in the foreground.  I was also very torn about creating this image in the first place - but isn't that what we're all worrying about - what with these images of senators in cross hairs and threatening messages from the gun-toting fringe? 

Love your comments!

HealthCare Bill

For months I've been wanting to do a toon about the ridiculous Republican rhetoric about the health care bill being "shoved," "crammed," and "jammed" down their throats by the Dems.  Now that it's passed, they're at it again.

The next version of the toon is by Jack, which I think is hilarious, but not political.  Which do you like?

Palin Bachmann $10,000 Photo OP

Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin are going to charge $10,000 for an uncoming fund-raiser photo op. MSNBC's Rachel Maddow called for Photoshop versions of said photo, so here's mine.

Karl Rove Book

I had the hardest time drawing this librarian.  The first sketch was the best except she wasn't looking in the customer's direction (still isn't).  That led to at least 6 other tries.  Did I do what my art teacher told me to do - which was "DON'T DRAW FROM MEMORY! Get a photo from Corbis and copy it."  Nope. I think I'll invent a new rule for myself: Don't draw bifocals.

Air Traffic Controller Bunning

I was so sure I had no gag for that nasty creepo Jim Bunning whose NO vote cut benefits for thousands, and then some clueless dad let his
brat run loose in the airport tower... and taa dah!

When two news stories collide, it's an editorial cartoonist's bonanza!

I'm loving  all your Emails and comments. Karyl

President Still Smoking

After his annual physical, it was revealed that Obama was still smoking.   I thought it would get more press than it has.  Damn that newbee earthquake! Meanwhile the No-To-Everything Repubs are getting mighty annoying.
