The Man with the Plan

The WH Press Corps is lousy with Roll Call alumni and my editor, Charlie Mitchell was cool with me working them into this cartoon. Meanwhile, Congress continues to prove itself the weakest sister in government.

Chinese Checkers Speech

I really like drawing Obama smoking. A cigarette is becoming part of my caricature and it gives me something to do with his hands. Also fast becoming part of the Presidential caricature--his teleprompter.

There's a lot I like about this cartoon. I get to do a "Hu-Who?" joke; take another swipe at Bush; revisit "Too Big To Fail"; and oh yeah, preview our new, capitulatory relationship with our Chinese Overlords.

This premise is flawed. There are plenty of plans--just a dearth of good ones.

Kid Rocks

So this Chas Tenenbaum-look-a-like read Barry Goldwater's "Conscience of a Conservative." Then he spent three minutes reading the Cliff's Notes at CPAC to a bunch of Republicans who had never heard of it. They ate it up, never realizing that he's the closet thing Bill Buckley's old outfit has to an intellectual these days.

Backyard Kipling

The similarities between how the Obama and Bush administrations govern are as stark as their policies are different. In both cases, every issue is a crisis that requires immediate action---NO TIME TO THINK---and these actions are all based on best case scenario. I spoke with a bunch of my neighbors while I was leaning on my rake Saturday and no one thinks there will be robust growth by 2010. How can Obama?

I'm glad I just have to draw cartoons about this stuff rather than actually having to solve these problems.

A Spike Free Joint

This cartoon was published on Tuesday, well before Bobby Jindal laid the mother of all eggs, so I am feeling particularly prescient.
