Every Friday, we collect the best political cartoons of the week and stuff them into one big, glorious slideshow.
So just relax and catch up on a week’s worth of news with our Best Cartoons of the Week slideshow.
The end of December is as good a time as any to reflect on the year gone by. As a cartoonist, I find it interesting to look back at all the cartoons our cartoonists have drawn over the course of the year, reminding me of all the news events and controversies I might otherwise have forgotten (was Arnold’s love child already wiped out of your memory too?).
2011 was filled with many monumental moments – the death of Osama bin Laden and Moammar Gadhafi, the passing Kim Jong Il, the rise of the Arab Spring, the growth of Occupy Wall Street.
Merry Christmas everyone! As we kick back to enjoy the holiday, here’s our gift to you – five funny Christmas cartoons I guarantee you’ll enjoy more than Mom’s fruitcake! (View our entire collection of Christmas cartoons here)
Merry Christmas to all our readers! As we begin to wrap up another year and prepare to dive in to glasses of egg nog, I thought it might be fun to look back at some of the Christmas-related cartoons I’ve drawn over the years.
Here’s this year’s cartoon. Figured it’s what’s on the mind of a lot of Republicans this Holiday season:
Here’s one featuring Obamaclaus:
I drew this one back in 2006, after Iraq became the debacle we all know and love now:
Keep you eyes peeled on those Salvation Army bell ringers. You never know:
This was my Christmas cartoon back in 2003, when Bush gave away everything, including the kitchen sink, to be re-elected:
Here’s a golden Cagle oldie from way back in 2000, back when I was still drawing cartoons for the Honolulu Advertiser (now known as the Honolulu Star-Advertiser after being bought by its cross-town rival):
It’s Christmas time – the season of giving. Unfortunately, the only thing we’re getting from Congress is angina. While everyone agrees that extending the payroll tax holiday for a year is a good thing, leave it to our elected representatives to find a way to muck it up.
Here are 5 funny cartoons, summing up what all of us think about these silly political games we have to endure. Click here to view all our Payroll Tax Cut cartoons.
Like many cartoonists, I’m sad that I’ll never get the chance to draw North Korea’s nutty leader Kim Jong Il again. Here’s my cartoon about his death:
Kim Jong Il was great to draw. I was able to do this caricature of him featuring the back of his head, and everyone could still get who I was drawing. You can’t do that with many characters:
Kim Jong Il was a pain in the rear for many Presidents. The most recent of course was President Obama:
A lot of times, it seemed like Kim Jong Il was toying with the world. Having a nuclear arsenal certainly gave him some leverage:
Most of the time, I think this was his attitude towards everyone except Elvis:
He was also a torn in the side of the Bush administration, who tried to reach out to the wacky leader on more than one occasion:
His enduring legacy – a nutjob with crazy hair in charge of a country with nuclear weapons. Sounds like the plot of an Adam Sandler movie:
