This cartoon was first published in early November. Not that it's hard to anticipate Lieberman's actions -- just think to yourself, "what would a total asshole do?"

Are You a Real American?

2008-10-24-areyouHUFF.jpg

There's nothing new about Republicans claiming that a significant portion of their fellow citizens are somehow not "real" Americans. It was a familiar refrain when this cartoon ran in 2002 (earning me a denunciation as a sneering elitist from noted populist Ann Coulter, who...

An animated piece from 1999. Wrong cast of characters, but still as timely as today's headlines.

The Revisionist

(3) Comments | Posted August 18, 2008 | 1:31 PM

Bill Kristol, in the print edition of this morning's New York Times:

NBC's Andrea Mitchell reported on "Meet the Press" that "the Obama people must feel that he didn't do quite as well as they might have wanted to in that context. ... What they're putting out privately is...

Satire by the Book

(163) Comments | Posted July 16, 2008 | 10:38 AM

The internets are full of declarative statements about satire these days, the most common of which being that "satire does not work unless it portrays its intended target."

So let's consider this image:

Clearly this cartoon doesn't work at all, because...

(This cartoon first ran in my various client publications three weeks ago, but still seems relevant in light of last night's results.)

Graphic Novels: Threat or Menace?

(129) Comments | Posted October 25, 2007 | 9:20 AM

Fifty three years after Dr. Fredric Wertham argued in "Seduction of the Innocent" that comic books were corrupting the morals of our youth, a public schoolteacher has been forced to resign -- and faced the threat of criminal prosecution -- for giving a student a graphic novel as a reading...

What They Said

I was planning to mark the fourth anniversary of the start of the war by looking back at some of the more remarkable statements pundits made at the time. But I'm a weekly cartoonist, and this month I just had too many other ideas clamoring for my limited space, so...

Bill O'Reilly is Right!!

Thank you, Bill, for working tirelessly to expose the nefarious machinations of George Soros and his ilk! (More on the shocking story here!)

I myself tried to raise the alarm about this secretive puppetmaster a few weeks ago...

Taxi to the Dark Side

(19) Comments | Posted April 17, 2007 | 9:53 AM

I had a chance last night to see a small sneak preview of an unreleased documentary called "Taxi to the Dark Side" by filmmaker Alex Gibney (who was nominated for an Emmy Oscar for his last film, "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room"), which examines, basically, how we got...

Two takes on a similar theme this week. The cartoon above, from November '05, is one of my own personal favorites. I don't think I've come up with a better expression of the sheer infuriating helplessness many of us have experienced over the...

A Cartoon for Bill Maher

TMW03-07-07huffpo1.jpg

Actually I didn't write this with Bill Maher in mind, but he is one of the most recent targets of the tactic it describes. Playing bait-and-switch with faux outrage is one of the right's favorite games -- just ask the Edwards bloggers, or John...

Another One Bites the Dust

(43) Comments | Posted February 7, 2007 | 7:47 AM

In New Haven, Connecticut, Clear Channel has just replaced the liberal talk radio station, WAVZ (which featured Air America programming along with some other syndicated liberal hosts such as Stephanie Miller), with ESPN sports radio. Clear Channel also owns the local conservative hate-fest station (Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, etc.), which, needless...

Once More, for the Record

I notice that right-wingers are still bringing up the "fact" that Michael Moore was "invited" into Jimmy Carter's skybox at the Democratic Convention in Boston, the implication apparently being that the DNC got together and sent Michael an invitation months in advance so everyone would be sure to see him...

On April 1, the Scaife-owned Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ran an interview with Daniel Pipes (found via docstrangelove.com). Some notable excerpts:

Q: What is the biggest lesson you have learned from the Iraq war?

A: The ingratitude of the Iraqis for the extraordinary favor we gave them -- to release...

Shameless Self-Promotion

I'm midway through a weeklong experiment in sleep deprivation, otherwise known as a book tour. Last night in Los Angeles, the gracious hostess of this little corner of the internet urged me to post a plug for the new book, and who I am to refuse? You can buy it...
