Going on Safari


Greetings progressives and cartoon lovers! I’m dropping this note to say I’m going on safari for a while … not actually traveling to Africa (Covid!) but metaphorically speaking. New adventures are calling and there’s only so much time in the day, week etc. I don’t know how long I’ll be traversing my symbolic Serengeti, but if you follow me on social media or subscribe to my Sunday newsletter you’ll be the first to know about […]

Limbaugh’s Goodbye and Good Riddance Will Be Trump’s One Day Too


If there’s any doubt about how contemporaries will view the life and impact of Donald Trump, look no farther than how voices large and small weighed in on news of Rush Limbaugh’s death this week. The conservative media blowhard lost his battle with cancer at age 70 on Wednesday, and within minutes love poured in from the extremist right, but was quickly doused by those who loathed the controversial radio host. Views expressed on social […]

From The Big Lie to The Big Reveal – Three Big Impeachment Wins for Progressives


Now that everyone’s simmered down and weighing in on Saturday’s impeachment verdict, I’d like to point out that progressives are actually the true winners from last week’s political drama. Let’s take a pause from the whining and bitching to consider these three key gains as fallout from the trial. Trump has been neutered, rendered ineffectual from public life and politics that matter Yes the twice-impeached one-term ex and worst president of all time, Donald J. […]


Republicans Created A Monster by Bob Englehart, PoliticalCartoons.com
Capitol Riot

It’s Official — The GOP is now the Party of QAnon and Space Lasers, Fighting Baby-Eating Pedophiles


A new poll shows Republican voters prefer Marjorie Taylor Greene over Liz Cheney by a wide margin — poll conducted before Greene’s denouncement of conspiracy theories today (and getting booted from two House committees) It’s been quite the 24-hour whirlwind inside the House of Representatives, which culminated in a party-line vote today to strip MTG (Marjorie Taylor Greene) of two committee assignments due to her incendiary remarks, videos and social media posts espousing violence against other […]


Trump leaves Biden a note by John Darkow, Columbia Missourian

Leaked! Trump’s Note to Biden Asks for Pardon, Disses MyPillow Guy and Coach Bill Belichick


A super duper secret source within the White House has confirmed the contents of the presidential note Donald Trump left for Joe Biden in the Resolute Desk — and it was penned in Sharpie. Biden confirmed on Inauguration Day that Trump had indeed left the personal note, but would not reveal its contents out of respect for Trump’s privacy. Biden called it “a very generous letter,” while a Trump aid told CNN it was written on Trump’s […]


Trump's Four Years Chronicled by Political Cartoonist Stephane Peray
2020 Election

One Last Laugh at a Terrible President Through the Eyes of a French Cartoonist


Political cartoonist Stephane Peray offers hysterical chronicle of Donald Trump’s reign of terror and idiocy. While no one in their right mind (save scholars and historians) will want to revisit the Trump years, this recap of the outgoing president’s cringe-worthy and blessedly short era is so worth visiting. The talent and side-splitting humor of political cartoonist Stephane “Stephff” Peray perfectly captured the insanity of our unhinged U.S. president like no other. And the fact that […]


Cuban American Artist Edel Rodriguez's Minimalist Rage Defined the Era of Trump
2020 Election

A Tribute to Edel Rodriguez, Whose Trumprageous Art Defined an Era and Gave Us Hope


In a fitting end to the Trump era, artist Edel Rodriguez closes out his nemesis’s presidency with one last magazine cover — a tattered and torn American flag at half staff, that perfectly sums up not just the failed MAGA coup, but the last four years. The cover image, which appears on today’s issue of The New Yorker, is titled “After the Insurrection.” Rodriguez, who as a teenager fled with his family to the U.S. […]

Oh MyPillow Guy, How Do You Sleep at Night After Pushing Martial Law?


Probably on an adjustable interlocking-foam-filled premium pillow is my guess, but also maybe fitfully, because the MAGA coup failed and the only recourse left is martial law. Obviously. In fact so clear is this strategy to save MAGAworld from Joe Biden and the Libs, that MyPillow Guy Mike Lindell briefed Donald Trump about this very thing yesterday at the White House. We have Washington Post staff photographer Jabin Botsford and his telephoto lens to thank for […]

Inside Job – MAGA Leader Says GOP Reps Biggs, Brooks and Gosar Helped Plan Insurrection


As Republicans grapple with purging their own deplorables, three new GOPers are identified as helping to plan the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. All three are House Congressional Republicans — two from Arizona: Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar, and Mo Brooks from Alabama. The Washington Post reports today that all three lawmakers have been named as complicit in last week’s deadly riot in a now-deleted Twitter video (that still lives here) made by a […]

Melania’s Feelings Are Hurt, Twitter Says I Really Don’t Care Do U?


After five days of silence Melania Trump issued a whiney, plagiarized statement about the January 6 Capitol riot, ignoring her husband’s role as ring leader and saying people are being mean to her. Twitter yawned and said, I really don’t care do U? Yesterday’s tone-deaf statement, heavily plagiarized from one of her earlier speeches, completely misjudges the mood of the country. Shocker. The not-for-much-longer First Lady condemned last week’s violence without addressing its cause (her […]
