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 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.

Trump, Polls and the GOP!

I drew today’s Trump cartoon live on YouTube. Here is the finished color version.


That’s the GOP’s tarnished image at the right, as Trump rockets up in the polls. To really be going up in the polls, he should be facing to the right instead of the left – and I thought about that for a bit, as you can see in the video, but having Trump go the wrong way is better.

Today’s Trump news, about how he would ban Muslims from coming into the USA until we figure out “what the hell is going on” is great fun, because Trump’s supporters love what he has to say, while mainstream Republicans and the media are offended, demanding again and again that Trump leave the race. That tarnished GOP brand is starting to look pretty crusty.

Living here in red-state Tennessee I see angry Republicans are all around me; they live in their own news bubble, with their own history of the world, reinforced by their communities of like minded, angry, evangelical conservatives. The typical Republican voters are much father right than their knuckle-dragging candidates. Trump has plenty of room to his right to be even more outrageous.

Oh! Today I learned that the government of Pakistan is no longer blocking access to within Pakistan! Welcome to all of our new Pakistani readers!
