The Supreme Court has been rigging elections since I was first eligible to vote in a Presidential election in 2000. I was in college at the time and too lazy to vote absentee (Maryland and Massachusetts went to Gore, so don’t blame me.), but I learned my lesson and voted in every election since. For twenty years, massive turnout has been needed to overcome the voter suppression of Republicans and their Supreme flunkies, and this year’s obstacles are even worse.
Trick-or-treaters probably won’t be plentiful in my neighborhood, but I’ll be out on my triple decker’s balcony with candy ready to lower a bucket to any who show up. And if they don’t, well, at least I’ll have some candy to eat while I’m sitting out there.
Every judge and justice appointed by a loser of the popular vote is illegitimate and should be removed and their opinions nullified. The compromise position is expanding the court. Anything less is capitulation to Mitch’s lifelong project of destroying the country.
Just two more regularly scheduled comics until the election! I’ve drawn Biden in 2019 and a couple of times for The Nib, so I think you can tell I’m not exactly enthusiastic about him. If things go well, I’ll start ripping him to shreds soon.
I have around 210,000+ thoughts and prayers to send before I can get around to worrying about this guy.
Hours after finishing last week’s post-debate cartoon, my wife woke me up at 5:30am to tell me Trump had COVID. Sadly, she didn’t wake me up early this morning with even better news.
I censored the last panel for some outlets, and gave both uncensored and censored versions to others, and so I can post this comic on social media without it getting flagged as inappropriate.
CARTOONIST’S NOTE: I finished this comic before Trump got the ‘Rona. Which is hilarious, and I regret not being able to work it into the cartoon.
The Commission on Presidential Debates is a bipartisan solution to a problem that didn’t exist when the League of Women’s Voters ran things.
I watched the first debate and tweeted some jokes. These things don’t sway anybody, but can depress or raise turnout among those whose minds have been made. I know I’m more enthusiastic about voting against this shitburger after the watching.
Hopefully just over a month till the election’s decided. Then we can begin worrying about him not leaving. Oh, and that pandemic thing that’s ticking back up.
