Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – August 29, 2020

Here are the ten most widely published cartoons of the week (August 22nd through August 29th, 2020). As usual, no drawings of president Trump were among the most popular with newspaper editors, even with the Republican convention this week. Six of the cartoons are light, life during the pandemic cartoons. Three are “back to school during the pandemic” cartoons, which remains the most popular topic with editors.

Congratulations to the two CagleCartoonists who have two cartoons each in the Top Ten, Dave Whamond (#1 and #8 – as he did last week) and Jeff Koterba (#3 and #8). I was happy to see Randy Enos come in with a strong #2!  Kudos to the other cartoonists who made the most reprinted list this week, Steve SackAdam Zyglis, Dave Granlund, Dave Fitzsimmons and Gary McCoy.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com.


Our reader supported site, Cagle.com, still needs you!  Journalism is threatened with the pandemic that has shuttered newspaper advertisers. Some pundits predict that a large percentage of newspapers won’t survive the pandemic economic slump, and as newspapers sink, so do editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers, and along with them, our Cagle.com site, that our small, sinking syndicate largely supports, along with our fans.

The world needs political cartoonists more now than ever. Please consider supporting Cagle.com and visit Cagle.com/heroes.  We need you! Don’t let the cartoons die!


#1

Congratulations to Dave Whamond  who drew the #1 most reprinted cartoon again this week, the first of Dave’s two cartoons in the Top Ten!

#2

Randy Enos takes second place. The top two cartoons stood out as much more reprinted than the rest this week.

 

#3

Jeff Koterba takes 3rd place.

#4

Adam Zyglis takes 4th place.

 

#5

Dave Fitzsimmons takes for 5th place.

 

#6

Steve Sack ties for 6th place with a drawing of the White House that doesn’t show Trump – would fewer editors have reprinted this one if Trump was in it?

 

#6

Dave Granlund is also tied for 6th place, with the only hurricane cartoon.

#8

Jeff Koterba  is tied for 8th place with his second cartoon in the Top Ten.

 

#8

Dave Whamond is tied for 8th place with his second cartoon on our most reprinted list. Dave could just as easily chosen to put Trump in the place of the Republican elephant, and if he did, I’ll bet the cartoon wouldn’t have made the Top Ten.

#10

Gary McCoy claims the ten spot with this Biden bashing cartoon. There are very few cartoons about Biden and editors clearly want more.

Sharpie Hurricane!

President Trump seemed to be sure that Hurricane Dorian was headed to Alabama –so sure that he reportedly altered a weather map with a Sharpie pen to change the projected path of the storm, causing a media storm. Here’s my cartoon.

I was thinking of doing a graduated tonal background. I thought about making the line look like it was on the plane of the ground by messing around in Photoshop, and finally I thought –the messy, hand-drawn line with no background is funnier.

Cartoonists have a special relationship with Sharpie markers, and we have a flood of Trump/Sharpie cartoons blowing in!  Here are my favorites! This one is by Taylor Jones

 

This one by John Cole may have a little sexual innuendo going on.

 

This one is by David Fitzsimmons

 

Bill Day‘s “More Genius” cartoon made me laugh …

 

This one is by Steve Sack

 

This one is by Rick McKee

 

One could argue that Pinocchio gives full employment to editorial cartoonists – if editorial cartoonists had full employment. This one is by Kevin Siers.

 

Here’s one by our clever Canadian, Dave Whamond.

WhiteFish and the White House

Every so often a really stinky fish looms over the White House. I have to draw a similar cartoon every seven years or so. Today’s stinky fish is “Whitefish Energy,” the two employee company in WhiteFish, Montana that happened to win a $300,000,000 exclusive contract from Puerto Rico to maintain their electrical system. Why this little company won a contract like this is a mystery to the White House. Interestingly, the tiny town of Whitefish, Montana (population 7.279) is the hometown of the Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, and some are wondering if this could be a reason why the little company landed this big contract. Here’s an article with some other interesting Whitefish facts.

Whitefish Energy employs about 300 contractors who are working on tens of thousands of miles of downed power lines in powerless Puerto Rico. Not nearly enough people for the job, but their exclusive contract is keeping more workers out. Sounds stinky to me.

In the past my stinky fish has reared its rotting head for both the Obama and George W. Bush administrations. Here’s my stinky Solyndra fish from 2011, depicting a stinky green energy company that blew through $500 million dollars of taxpayer subsidies before turning belly up.

The stinky fish for the Bush administration in 2007 was the Iraq war …

It looks like we should expect another fish to descend in another five or six years. Keep your eye (or nose) out for it.

Here’s how my Whitefish cartoon looks today in USA Today.

10 Great Hurricane Cartoons

The North East is getting slammed at the moment by Hurricane Sandy, a rare October menace many experts have dubbed “Frankenstorm.” Hurricanes of this power hitting the most densely populated area of the country are rare, and threatens over 50 million people with flooding, high winds and even snow.

Jeff Parker, the staff cartoonist of Florida Today, has lots of experience covering many, many hurricanes from his home base of Florida. Here are 10 of Jeff’s funniest cartoons:
