See Daryl Draw the Republican Candidates!

The new cartoon today is Donald Trump and all of the other GOP candidates on the teeter-totter, with Trump outweighing them all. With eleven caricatures, this one was more ambitious than my typical cartoon, and you can watch my whole eleven face journey below on YouTube!

Try watching the video below at double speed (one of the nice YouTube settings options). Everyone thinks drawing this stuff is quick and effortless – which is nice, but watching the video gives more realistic picture.

If all goes well, I think I’ll do all of my cartoons as a live stream. Please let me know what you think, and what you would like to see me do differently!

In the Trump Shadow

Donald Trump casts a big shadow over the Republican field as we approach the first debate. I drew little caricatures of all the candidates – can you name them all? (I would have missed Jim Gilmore – he declared late and I stuck him behind the crowd, behind Ben Carson, as an afterthought.)

I started off drawing this one with Donald Trump as a storm cloud raining on the other Republicans.

When I posted this we started getting calls from editors who wanted a color version, and I haven’t done that yet. I suppose I still should, but I think the shadow version is better.

I’m guessing that the Fox News debate will be either storm or shadow, with Trump on top. We’ll see.

What Political Cartoonists Thought of Santorum

After much hand-wringing among Republicans anxious to end their primary blood bath, presidential candidate Rick Santorum has finally decided to suspend his campaign. Facing a potentially embarrassing loss in his home state of Pennsylvania, Santorum getting out of the race now makes a clear path for Mitt Romney to become the party’s nominee, bounced checks from Newt Gingrich not withstanding.

This has been an exciting race, and much like the Hillary/Obama primary back in 2008, cartoonists weighed in with an onslaught of terrific cartoons. You can view our complete collection of Rick Santorum cartoons here, but here are a handful I thought were cool…

Five Easter Cartoons About the 2012 Primary

I know a lot of cartoonists hate drawing holiday cartoons, but I always look forward to using the unique visual imagery every holiday has to offer in new and interesting ways.

As we’re in the midst of a contentious Republican primary for the party’s Presidential representative, I thought it’d be cool to post five cartoons weighing in on the race using Easter imagery. It’s just too bad they weren’t all drawn on eggs…

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.

And The Primary Marches On…

For those of you feeling weary of this GOP Primary and hoping it will end soon can start crying now. Super Tuesday has come and gone, and we’re no closer to having this race sorted out then we were yesterday.

Yes, Mitt Romney won Ohio, but not by much. Santorum managed to snag Tennessee and Oklahoma, but is still being kept in check by Newt Gingrich, who won his home state of Georgia and is helping to split the conservative vote.

About the only thing anyone can agree on is that Super Tuesday has set up a long, draw-out slugfest to the GOP nomination. With that in mind, here are some cartoons that I thought fit the mood moving forward…

Santorum feeds hungry Republicans

Here’s my newest cartoon about everyone’s favorite birth control warrior, former Pennsylvania Senator and Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum (view more Rick Santorum cartoons here). For a man who not afraid to tell voters what’s on his mind (no matter how looney), Santorum now regrets saying he wanted to “throw up” after watching John F. Kennedy’s speech to Baptist ministers in Houston in 1960.

Just for the record, here’s what Kennedy said in his speech:

I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish; where no public official either requests or accepts instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source; where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials; and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all.”

Wow, Kennedy didn’t want The Pope to control American politics. Harsh.

You see, Santorum wanted to hurl because despite what our Constitution says, he doesn’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute.

“The idea that the church can have no influence or no involvement in the operation of the state is absolutely antithetical to the objectives and vision of our country,” Santorum said on Sunday.

Five Frothy Rick Santorum Cartoons

It’s make-or-break time for Rick Santorum (who still can’t escape the infamy of his last name on Google). The culture warrior has risen in popularity among the Republican base by throwing out red meat pertaining to religion, birth control and slamming the president’s value system as a “phony theology.”

Can Santorum not only win the GOP nomination, but somehow unseat President Obama from office? Our cartoonists sure don’t think so. Here are five recent cartoons that sum up their thoughts…
