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 …

Texas COVID Party

Texas Governor Greg Abbot just dropped COVID restrictions on business and masks, at a time when new variants of the virus are threatening a new resurgence. Mississippi too. Some other states dropping restrictions to a lesser degree. Bad timing for public health but it is always good timing for cartoonists.  Here’s mine:

My Fourteen Cartoons on Marriage Equality – In One Day

Last week’s Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage in all fifty states had a direct impact on thirteen states where gay marriage was banned – including my new red-state home, Tennessee.  I drew Bert and Ernie celebrating as the grooms on top of a wedding cake with the flag of the thirteen laggard states, and a general version of the cartoon for fourteen total cartoons.

Tennessee has a lousy state flag. The three stars in the center of the flag represent the union of Western, middle and Eastern Tennessee, and the stripe at the right of the flag represents nothing, it is there for aesthetic purposes – to look pretty. There’s not a lot of backstory to the Tennessee flag.  The other flags are even worse. There is a clear relationship between red-states that reject marriage equality and poorly designed state flags.

The Winner of Mississippi and Alabama: Cartoonists

Last night, in two hard-fought GOP primaries a real winner finally emerged from the frothy mess that has been the Republican field – the nation’s editorial cartoonists!

With Rick Santorum winning both Mississippi and Alabama, it almost guarantees this crazy GOP Primary will continue on, possibly all the way to the party’s convention in Tampa. And if Newt Gingrich drops out, Rick Santorum would become a formidable candidate for Team Romney to contend with. All this is good news for cartoonists, who have been enjoying this primary about as much a Mitt likes a bowl of cheesy grits.

Here are some cartoons about the great, white conservative hope.

Some Still Think Obama is a Muslim

Republican voters in Alabama and Mississippi might have a hard time deciding which Presidential candidate they want to win the primary, but they agree on one thing – President Obama is a Muslim.

According to a new poll released by Public Policy Polling, a whopping 52 percent of Mississippi respondents believe Obama worships Allah. In Alabama the number is slightly lower at 45 percent. Only 12 and 14 percent, respectively, correctly identified Obama as Christian ( probably so they could criticize him over Jeremiah Wright).

As long as we’re still talking about this, here are some funny cartoons…
