The riot/insurrection/coup by the MAGA mob was very bad, but what was even worse are the members of Congress who voted to throw out the election results to pander to that mob.

They must be expelled or we’re in for four years of escalations and mob violence. Sorry to put a downer on any virtual Inauguration parties you’re planning next week.

GOP Jury Duty

Read the comic on Patreon.

Mitch’s shady late night impeachment shenanigans should clue people in to the G.O.P.’s project to undermine democracy, but if the last twenty years haven’t, I don’t know what will.

I thought nothing could be worse than drawing Ted Cruz during the 2016 primaries, but then he went and grew a teenager’s graying patchy beard.

Brett Kavanaugh’s Character Witnesses

This cartoon almost has fewer men in it than the “Women for Kavanaugh” bus.

I still think Kavanaugh will be confirmed, for the very reason cited in the Mitch McConnell panel. But the longer the process is drawn out, and the more Republicans have to defend him, the less time they have for other shenanigans leading up to the midterms.

The DNC’s Unscheduled Events

The DNC's Unscheduled EventsThe other party’s having a convention this week. Instead of being outright racist and hateful, they are simply comically inept. It’s great to have choices in a democracy!

If you’re in Philly for the convention, check out The Nib’s HQ at 303 Cherry Street between 12 and 6pm. I won’t be there, but a lot of my friends will. I have a bunch of work at the space, including some swag you can take home.

The NYC Pandering Primary

The NYC Pandering PrimaryNew York’s primary matters for the first time in decades, and all of the remaining candidates are doing some campaign pandering in the Big Apple. Events are scheduled in the rest of the state of course, but with 8 million people, and the headquarters of the media, there’s been substantially more emphasis on NYC.

I couldn’t resist including a little Easter egg for my fellow Red Sox fans. I’m thankful baseball season’s back, where even the Yankees-Sox rivalry is more civil than electoral politics.

Right-Wing Stuntman

Right-Wing StuntmanTed Cruz is the Republican Party’s last chance to pull their nomination away from Trump, even though his policies and people skills are just as terrible, if not worse. After the bombings in Brussels, Cruz advocated for policing and monitoring of Muslim communities in the US. If that’s better than Trump’s plan to deny Muslims entry into the United States, that’s straining the definition of the word “better.”

While drawing this cartoon, I came across a phenomenon that might explain why Ted Cruz’s face is so unsettling: His teeth are rarely visible, make his face look like one of these carnival games:
