Newest COVID Favorites

Here’s my new COVID cartoon, about all of the states that are dropping their mask mandates just as COVID cases are spiking. That includes: Texas, Alaska, Arizona,Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

I gave the maskless idiot the same basic face as the Coronaviruses – it’s only fair.

And here are some of my recent Covid favorites …

TRUE Crazy Stuff 2!

Here’s another batch of my TRUE syndicated newspaper cartoons from 1995. I’m culling out the cartoons that are not too stale to include in our database and making little changes so that don’t seem too dated; sometimes that is hard and I have to delete some of my favorite oldies. I’m letting quite a few old style TVs and land line phones sneak through.

I suppose it is more interesting that so little has changed.

Moving on From New Hampshire!

I refurbished an oldie for today’s cartoon. After today’s New Hampshire primary the candidate move on to Nevada and South Carolina.

Here’s the eight year oldie. Back in 2008 there was a kerfuffle about Michigan holding an early primary, and the parties enacted penalties against the state to punish it for thinking that it should have an equal role in the election to the favored, early states. I guess the punishment was effective, because we’re not seeing early Michigan this year.

And here’s the quickie video of my cartoon update …

Donald Trump Skips the Fox News/GOP/Iowa Debate!

Frankly, I think it is smart of Trump to skip the Fox News/GOP/Iowa debate tonight.  Fox News seems to be on an all-out anti-Trump blitz today. What happened to the good old days when news networks were fair and balanced?

I drew this one as a live stream on Twitch – please come and follow me at This one took about four hours to draw, so it is broken into two parts. Here’s part one, where I start with a blank sheet of paper and figure out what to draw.

Oh! That was two hours long! And there are ANOTHER two hours to watch in the video below!

My Recent Campaign Cartoons

So far, this GOP Primary has been terrific for guys like me. All the Republican candidates are fun to draw, and at this point the only thing I’m concerned about is having enough pencils to keep up.

Mitt Romney has suddenly become the right’s whipping boy over “vulture capitalism” and his hesitancy to release his tax returns. Romney claims that Gingrich and others are attacking free enterprise, and Mitt’s proud of what he’s earned despite how much you may envy him. So if he’s so proud, why’s he afraid to let us know all about it?

Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich bashes the media and pretends to be the “family values” candidate despite his marital record and stories about hospital bed divorces…

Remember after Iowa and New Hampshire, when we all though Mitt would walk away with this primary easily? Yeah, not so much…

I guess New Hampshire wasn’t the cruel, bossy dominatrix we all thought she was…

Republican presidential hopefuls are making their final pitches in Iowa today, criss-crossing the state to bolster their chances of winning tomorrow’s Iowa Caucuses.

One thing crazy about this year is the wide-open nature of the race. After endless debates and months of town halls and handshakes, 41 percent of those polled said they could still change their minds.

What do cartoonists think of the first in the nation presidential contest? Find out with our new Iowa Caucuses cartoon collection.

Michele Bachmann Cartoons

View our collection of Michele Bachmann cartoons

So Michele Bachmann is the winner of the Iowa Straw Poll, elevating her to front-runner status in the crowded Republican field vying to become the party’s nominee for President in 2012.

It looks like Bachmann has channeled “the spirit” of John Wayne, which she claimed she would do when she launched her campaign  in Waterloo, Iowa back in June. Wayne was born in Waterloo, as was Bachmann.

The only problem: The John Wayne with roots in Waterloo is John Wayne Gacy, a serial killer who was executed in 1994 after being convicted of 33 murders.

Oh well, she’s running for President anyway, and is now one of the top-tier candidates. Check out what cartoonists think with our collection of Michele Bachmann cartoons.
