Attacking Democracy

It will be interesting to see if the cartoons criticizing Trump will get reprinted this week, after president incited the violence on Capitol Hill.

Newspaper editors don’t like to print cartoons about Trump. I thought I would take a more “optimistic” view than most of the cartoonists who were drawing battered and bruised symbols of democracy – my democracy bounces back.  See my archive here.

Here are a couple from Jeff Koterba.

Jeff is optimistic too, at least if you look at his eagle cartoons in this order.  I almost started drawing the feet idea with them trampling on the flag, but I didn’t.  Maybe I should.

Here’s Bill Day’s battered eagle.

Bulgarian CagleCartoonist Christo “Komar” Komarnitsky drew Trump assaulting the Statue of Liberty.

Rick McKee’s 2020 Top Ten

Here are Rick McKee’s Top Ten cartoons of the year that were most reprinted in newspapers.  Rick is impressive and prolific, he worked for many years as the editorial cartoonist for the Augusta (Georgia) Chronicle, he has taken over the classic comic panel “Pluggers” and he also draws a new newspaper comic strip, “Mt. Pleasant.”

We keep statistics on how many editors, who subscribe to our syndicate service at CagleCartoons.com, download each cartoon. Over the next few days I’ll post Top Ten cartoons from some of our other CagleCartoonists!  See Rick’s cartoon archive on Cagle.com

Merry Christmas!

Here’s my new “Do it Yourself” Thanksgiving Transition Cartoon. It requires a printer, a pair of scissors and some glue.

Spineless!

Here’s today’s cartoon about the spineless Republicans who are backing Trump’s baseless claims of voter fraud and his refusal to recognize that Joe Biden won the election.

And here’s my cartoon as it appeared in The Washington Post this morning, 11/18/20.

“Spineless” cartoons are a favorite cliché for editorial cartoonists. Here’s a spineless cartoon that I drew about President Obama’s Middle East policy many years ago.

Here’s a 25 year old spineless oldie from my TRUE! cartoons, a syndicated newspaper feature that I drew back in 1995.

I took a quick look at the vast PoliticalCartoons.com archives for  my favorite spineless cartoons by the CagleCartoonists.

This 13 year old spineless oldie is from Monte Wolverton.

 

This three year old spineless oldie comes from Adam Zyglis.

 

This Dave Whamond spineless Mitch McConnell cartoon is a recent classic.

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.

Get Rid of the Pollsters

What is it about pollsters and how wrong they get everything? This presidential election wasn’t supposed to be close. Democrats were supposed to have a shot at winning the Senate and picking up seats in the House. The pollsters are wrong more than they are right. Lets give pollsters the boot.

Here’s my rough sketch …

Here’s a detail …

Stinking, idiot pollsters!

Editors Want You to VOTE

Newspaper editors love nothing more than a general call to action for readers to vote. Cartoons urging readers to vote are among the most reprinted of all the cartoons. Here’s my new “vote cartoon.”

People like for me to post my rough sketches, so here you go.

I wasn’t happy with Uncle Sam so I drew him over twice. Lincoln and Liberty needed to be taller, but I didn’t redraw them, I just made an indication to remember to make them taller on the final line version. I looked at some photos of Lincoln and his dark, little eyes, so I changed Abe’s eyes, but I like the bigger eyes in the sketch better; I should have gone with the bigger eyes.

This Dave Granlund cartoon from last week is our most reprinted cartoon since we started keep these stats at the beginning of the year.

These “VOTE” cartoons are also among our most reprinted cartoons this year. This one is by John Darkow.

 

My recent VOTE cartoon is our 6th most popular cartoon of the year. (Here’s my archive.)

Peaceful Transfer of Power

As conservative media obsesses over law and order, the “mainstream media” obsesses over president Trump and his supporters and their “word salad” about a “peaceful transfer of power.” Here’s my cartoon.

Republicans have issued statements that don’t mention Trump, and include the self-serving nonsense implying that they will be eager participants in a constitutional crisis that looms with a possible close election. I hate wordy cartoons, but sometimes there is no good alternative.

CagleCartoonist John Darkow was less wordy …

Here’s my rough sketch. For some reason, people keep telling me that they want to see these.

Forgotten Biden – Part 1

With all eyes on the pandemic there are very few cartoons being drawn about the presidential election. Trump still dominates cartoons, along with nasty coronavirus monster-balls, but poor Joe Biden has become almost invisible.  I thought I would scour the database for nice, recent Biden cartoons, and there were enough for only two posts of Biden cartoons. Here they are, the recent Biden cartoons, with part two tomorrow.

We may end up re-electing Trump simply because we all forgot that there is a presidential election this year.
