Dr. Ben Carson is NOT a Liar!

I think Dr. Ben Carson is NOT a liar. Now, given that, I need to decide if that is a good thing.

carson-on-caglePeople always say, “Daryl, with this presidential election you must be having so much fun! And you must be soon busy!” Actually, newspapers don’t use any more editorial cartoon when times are fun, so it never gets busier. And having the campaign dominate the news for a year doesn’t make a cartoonist’s life more fun. A little variety adds spice.
But, Ben Carson is fun. We have a wonderful and growing collection of Ben Carson cartoons on Come take a look! My talented buddy Taylor Jones drew that Carson in our promo.

Here are a couple of my recent favorites, this first one is by my buddy, Jeff Koterba of the Omaha World-Herald:

This one is by the brilliant Kevin Siers of the Charlotte Observer:

This strange one from Randall Enos made me laugh out loud – it is a linoleum block print that Randy carves with a knife, inks and prints on paper, then scans, showing Jesus carrying a sleeping Carson at the head of the presidential race – I think that says it all.

I read your Tennesseean op/ed and was reminded of my time teaching 8th graders 15 years ago. My most troubled rebellious boy turned out to be, unconsciously, a brilliant political cartoonist. Once I told him how the world needs his searing honesty, sharp drawing skills, and Attitude, he stopped jumping over desks, and slowly gained confidence. I don’t know where he went, but I have always wondered if political cartoons could be an outlet for teenagers, especially the “out-lyers”: not great in academics, kind of snarly because most people don’t get past their tattoos and purple hair. Most I knew were bored out of their skulls by school. We told my student he had to stay alive so he could do his cartoons, and light bulbs went on.
I am sure you have seen this before, just wanted to share.
