Obama’s Lousy Seat

President Obama’s metaphorical airline seat is a lousy one right now. Here’s my newest cartoon.

Most people see my cartoons in black and white in the newspapers. I like the cartoons better in black and white – particularly if I do them with no gray tone, just line.  Here is what most people see in the newspaper.

I know I should have drawn a Ray Rice cartoon, and I was going to draw something similar to the one that Steve Sack drew below … but I was too slow.  And Steve’s cartoon was better than the one was would have drawn, so if I was a little faster, I would have been embarrassed.

The other thing I should have drawn, but I didn’t, was something on Apple’s big product announcement.  I put this Nate Beeler oldie up on Twitter and it went viral.  Some things never change, from one Apple product announcement to the next.
