Removing Another Confederate Monument

This is an exclusive cartoon just for $5+ patrons. Become a supporter here.

New Orleans is taking down several monuments to the Confederacy and Jim Crow. But Jefferson Beauregard Sessions is still our Attorney General.

This cartoon is just some wish fulfillment until it’s hopefully realized in 2020, if Sessions doesn’t restrict voting rights to everyone but his ancient ass by then.


Inside the White House Writers’ Room

The second version of the White House’s unconstitutional immigration ban was struck down on Thursday. Public comments admitting the discriminatory intent of the executive order made by Rudy Giuliani and Trump adviser Stephen Miller helped strike it down.

Good job, guys!

Orange is the New Black History Month

Despite his cluelessness about Frederick Douglass, the White House’s current orange occupant has his own rich history with African-Americans. It’s all bad. Housing discrimination, racist ad campaigns, and his KKK-adjacent father are just the tip of a very racist iceberg.

The bloated underbelly of that iceberg belongs to Steve Bannon. Who writes the orders Trump signs without reading.

The GOP’s Establishment Man with a Plan

Establishment Man with a PlanWillard “Mitt” Romney is back in the news, and I’ll never pass up an opportunity to needle this man. As a freelancer, I didn’t have health insurance until he created RomneyCare. He then spent the next decade campaigning on the promise to take it away. There’s nothing more “phony” or “fraudulent” than that.

Any talk of a contested or brokered Republican convention is pure fan fiction for those establishment Republicans still in denial about the Trump candidacy; a candidacy they’ve sown for decades going back to Nixon’s Southern Strategy.

Politely Protesting with Mr. Manners

Politely ProtestingThe protests at Mizzou and other universities caused a lot of old pundits to critique teenagers’ and young adults’ methods for achieving social justice. No college kid cares what pundits have to say. Sure, that one teacher who asked “for muscle” goofed up, but she was mocked all last week for being overprotective. Who has time for tone policing students and faculty when corporations, bankers and their client politicians are actively trying to destroy the world?

Our National Conversations

Our National ConversationsAfter every tragedy, we engage in a “national conversation” about how we can prevent it from happening again. That usually devolves into partisan bickering before any significant change happens. Maybe this time will be different. And maybe one day Lucy will let Charlie Brown kick that football.
