Become a patron for a buck a month and see this and every comic early.

Republicans are spending their Fourth of July weekend trying to strip their fellow Americans of health insurance and vital Medicaid funding.

I am going to eat hot dogs, because unlike them, I’m a patriotic citizen.

Republicans Reject Trump

Republicans Reject TrumpRepublicans are abandoning the Trump Train, and Clinton’s rolling out the welcome mat. I hope her tent is big enough to keep John Negroponte far away from wherever the Clinton campaign’s foreign policy is being written.

The RNC’s Unscheduled Events

The RNC's Unscheduled EventsThe conventions are usually the most predictable part of an election year, but not this time. The outcomes of both parties’ conventions are already known, but the Republicans are nominating someone who makes a reality show of everything he touches. I’ll be watching from home, with a sick bucket nearby.

Donald Trump’s Same Old Party

Same Old PartyTrump became the presumptive Republican nominee after last week’s primary. Much has been made about his differences with the GOP establishment, but those differences are mostly cosmetic, particularly of the bottled tan variety.

I’m no campaign strategist, but it would probably be a good idea to take every opportunity to link Trump with the also hugely unpopular Republican brand rather than treat the two as separate entities. He is their standard-bearer after all.

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.

The GOP’s Winter Wonderland

The GOP's Winter WonderlandUnlike Frosty the Snowman, the Trump campaign the GOP brought to life won’t go away when the temperatures rise. We’re just over a month away from the primaries and we’ll find out if Trump’s poll numbers translate into votes and make the GOP’s decades of implicit racism explicit.
