Greetings progressives and cartoon lovers! I’m dropping this note to say I’m going on safari for a while … not actually traveling to Africa (Covid!) but metaphorically speaking. New adventures are calling and there’s only so much time in the day, week etc. I don’t know how long I’ll be traversing my symbolic Serengeti, but if you follow me on social media or subscribe to my Sunday newsletter you’ll be the first to know about [...]

Limbaugh’s Goodbye and Good Riddance Will Be Trump’s One Day Too

Posted By oliveamerica 704 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
If there’s any doubt about how contemporaries will view the life and impact of Donald Trump, look no farther than how voices large and small weighed in on news of Rush Limbaugh’s death this week. The conservative media blowhard lost his battle with cancer at age 70 on Wednesday, and within minutes love poured in from the extremist right, but was quickly doused by those who loathed the controversial radio host. Views expressed on social [...]

Decades of Cartoons Define Rush Limbaugh’s Toxic Legacy

Posted By oliveamerica 705 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
This fascinating collection of nearly 50 Rush Limbaugh cartoons (from the archives of my subscription service going back to 2003) is part stroll down memory lane, but mostly a jarring recap of the controversial radio host’s impact on American culture and conservative politics. Limbaugh, the original bigoted conspiracy theorist, was the precursor to Donald Trump. I posited this week that the quick chorus of goodbye and good riddance that emerged upon news of Limbaugh’s death will [...]

Cruz Ditches Frozen Texans for Cancun Vacation – Is Now a Good Time To Break Out the Ted-With-Penis-Hands Cartoon?

Posted By oliveamerica 706 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
This is a rhetorical question. Of course it’s the perfect time to feature this delightful (and layered) cartoon by illustrator Billy Leake that I’ve been saving for just such a moment. And I suspect cartoonists are hard at work today parodying Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) escape to an all-inclusive Mexican resort while his constituents freeze and starve back home — which I’ll dutifully collect in my usual weekend roundup of the week’s political cartoons. I [...]

From The Big Lie to The Big Reveal – Three Big Impeachment Wins for Progressives

Posted By oliveamerica 708 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
Now that everyone’s simmered down and weighing in on Saturday’s impeachment verdict, I’d like to point out that progressives are actually the true winners from last week’s political drama. Let’s take a pause from the whining and bitching to consider these three key gains as fallout from the trial. Trump has been neutered, rendered ineffectual from public life and politics that matter Yes the twice-impeached one-term ex and worst president of all time, Donald J. [...]

Court of Public Opinion Will Convict Trump, Not Flaccid Senators

Posted By oliveamerica 714 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
We should expect nothing less, and yet why are we still surprised when the bulk of limp and floppy Republicans show their true colors? Yesterday’s opening arguments in Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial — devoted purely to the procedural question of whether the Senate has constitutional authority to try him — perfectly foreshadowed that cowardly Republican Senators lack the character, fortitude and cajones to do the right thing. No amount of sound legal arguments, emotional [...]

I’m happy to share this collection of my favorite political cartoons of the week by nationally syndicated cartoonists.

It’s Official — The GOP is now the Party of QAnon and Space Lasers, Fighting Baby-Eating Pedophiles

Posted By oliveamerica 720 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
A new poll shows Republican voters prefer Marjorie Taylor Greene over Liz Cheney by a wide margin — poll conducted before Greene’s denouncement of conspiracy theories today (and getting booted from two House committees) It’s been quite the 24-hour whirlwind inside the House of Representatives, which culminated in a party-line vote today to strip MTG (Marjorie Taylor Greene) of two committee assignments due to her incendiary remarks, videos and social media posts espousing violence against other [...]

Two Groundhogs, Two Forecasts — My Bet’s On Staten Island Chuck!

Improving virus and economy plus tons of political schadenfreude point to a brighter future Who knew the nation had more than one marmot meteorologist? While Punxsutawney Phil always steals the spotlight on Groundhog Day, there’s a rival rodent in New York City called Staten Island Chuck, who’s actually a better predictor of winter forecasts and hasn’t gotten his due props. In a live-streamed, unattended Covid-safe event in Punxsutawney, Pa this morning, Phil slumbered out of his [...]

Posted By oliveamerica 725 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
I’m adding another regular section to my weekly political cartoon collection — beginning today and on Saturdays gong forward, I will feature cartoons posted on Twitter by cartoonists who don’t appear in my Cagel Cartoon subscription. These brilliant artists and satirists sometimes appear in other publications with regularity and sometimes produce work only available on their social media profiles. All 24 of the following cartoons (on 2 pages) have been released by the artists on [...]
