Election in the Courts

Trump and his minions are scrambling for a way to throw the election into the courts with claims of widespread fraud.

This is a revised version of a cartoon that I drew earlier when Justice Antonin Scalia died.

This wouldn’t be the first time for the Supreme Court to decide to give the presidential election of a Republican.  Back in 2000 the decision came as a blow to Al Gore.

The 5-4 court decision was pretty outrageous. This could be the second time a partisan court decides to stop a vote count (or re-count) and decide the winner, if Trump has his way.

At that time I was a regular, local, daily cartoonist for Gannett’s Honolulu Advertiser newspaper in Hawaii. On the day that the Supreme Court decided to make George W. Bush president, I drew this cartoon that my newspaper refused to print.

I defaced the justices who voted to make George W. Bush president. I was pretty angry that day.

Anything can happen. It already has.

A Very Cagle Christmas

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):
