Bouncing a Gut Check


So because of a fairly typical election cycle, President Obama is put on a political respirator? We're getting dumber. Quickly.

Out of Position(s)

I always thought there was some modest justice to the House rules. You lose the majority, you lose a leadership post. This maneuver seems transparent and embarrassing.

Dems the Breaks

I've got to improve my Rachel Maddow caricature. She does live with an artist named Mikula, after all.

Exile on K Street

Sometimes you get lucky and manage to incorporate one of your two favorite rhythm guitarists of all time into a cartoon. Keef also tons of fun to draw.

What's the Big Idea?

Newt's always been a nut---who else impeaches a president for lying under oath about a sexual affair, while conducting his very own, equally creepy affair? He spits out ideas with the rapidity of a Tommy Gun. And with similar intellectual accuracy. Best part? Dude's only faced the voters in one of the most conservative districts in Georgia and still thinks he could get elected president. Can't wait.

Takeover Time


I'm very pleased Paul Ryan is one of the "Young Guns." He's the most interesting of them to draw.

Haynesworthless


Typical cartooning no-brainer. I just wish I could have actually drawn Fat Albert.

Apollo Greed

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Seriously, everyone talks about what a great guy Charlie Rangel is. And what a gigantic crook he is. Everybody talks about that now too.

Two American Zoetropes

Before I had children and became preternaturally exhausted, I could do the Apocalypse Now>Hearts of Darkness breakout. One of my favorite movies and one of my favorite documentaries. Now I settle for being able to work it into a cartoon.

Mike and the Mollusk

Cartoonists love crazy people. Like Michael Steele and Mel Gibson. Throw in a soothsaying octopus and it's cartooning magic.

Rake and Bake


This pleased me. I got to send up "Morning Joe," connect John Boehner with long-retired tanning legend and personal hero, Zonker Harris, and draw a mushroom cloud.

Political Perspectives

Most of the animations I've posted here have been entertainment-oriented. Here's a geopolitical one.

Anti-St. Christopher Meddle

I do enjoy the rascal, Christopher Hitchens. I haven't put him in a cartoon in a while. Today seemed a good day to do that. He's fun to draw. Stand by for more.

Greene Technology


There's a pattern emerging in my work. Since moving to Georgia I've been enjoying the Gulf of Mexico with increasing frequency. Specifically, St. George Island, Florida. I've seen the remarkable beauty and diversity of the Gulf first hand and I'm scared, sad, and angry. And yes, I have seen the enemy and he is me.

Celebrimath: Common Denominators

Half Court (with the) Press

The President's people like to make a point of what a great guy he is on the basketball court. His behavior towards the ink and toner-stained wretches suggests otherwise. That is, the tool who calls everything.

Steam Building

Where have you gone, Walt Kelly? The enemy is us indeed. Of course, the smarter play is blaming big, bad BP. They are a grossly overcompensated collection of derelict pikers to be sure, but the current administration tact more resembles blaming the bartender for a fatal drunk driving accident than crisis leadership.

Lost and Floundering

I couldn't let LOST leave the scene without working it into ROTUNDARAMA one more time. And yes, I was cool with the finale. Not cool? All that damned oil heading toward some of my favorite places in the world. Keep calm and carry on, Eddy Teach's!

Blown Switch

When composing cartoons about Arlen Specter, I like to revisit his role on the Warren Commission. He's a quirky fellow. I'm going to miss him. Perhaps.

Top Stun Gun


John McCain is now in his fifth year as the poster child for leaving the scene while still universally respected. Hero>Maverick>Cautionary Tale.

Celebrimath

A new animation. The Sandra Bullock story is kind of played, but it was a good exercise. .

Stand-up and Deliver

The President brought the house down last Saturday night. Meanwhile, BP was bringing down the Gulf Coast. Despite my culpability as a petroleum consumer in Southeaster United States, I'm sad and irate. The nature I've enjoyed down there doesn't stand a chance.





Celebricredits

I've been fooling around with some animation and I'll be posting the results here. Mostly stupid celebrity-oriented.

Too Big to Jail


I enjoy wagering a milkshake or matchstick on the outcome of a sporting event. So it's easy to imagine the contempt I have for Goldman Sach's collection of game-riggers.

Even Stevens


I love the Supreme Court and I really love Supreme Court Confirmation Silliness. They've made quite a sport of it. Not all sport of it, but not a good sport like football or golf. Ultimate Fighting is what it most resembles.

Babe Magnet and Steele


I've been trying to get Michael Steele and Tiger Woods into a cartoon for some time now. And I really enjoy drawing airplanes. Inserting a "Steele Your Face" gag was really just gravy for me.

The Flighty Quinn


I thought the whole Sally Quinn thing might be a bit of a force. Then I thought the Dems as dysfunctional family might be laughably obvious. Then I read that turnout in Iraq was over sixty percent. When it's it the mid-forties we'll know they have truly embraced democracy.

Sorry, Charlie


I have to spend parts of a month getting our taxes together. Then I PAY AN ACCOUNTANT to prepare them. So it's not hard to create a cartoon ripping the man in charge of writing the tax laws. Especially when said man has written the laws for everyone but himself. Charlie Rangel, a Korean War hero, now joins the swollen ranks of politicians who came to Washington to do good and wound up doing well.

Of Nukes and Kooks


So we have two parties. One is completely insane, the other is completely gutless. The system worked!

CNN Cartoon Clicks

Final Football Fix


This cartoon was draw the week after the Superbowl. I was missing the NFL yet resentful that Mel Kiper had begun ESPN's saturation coverage of the NFL draft. That and beginning to think that President Obama is all brain and no cattle.

Alabama Getaway


I don't know which tanker is best for the military, I just know that this is, in the words of my father, a bunch of horseshit.

One Story


These are my favorites. I find I do my best work when I can apply events that really matter to me to our usual political silliness.

CNN Cartoon Clicks


Steve Jobs is fun to draw. If you asked school children to draw what a man from the future would look like, Jobs's is pretty much what they would come up with.

Peyton's Out of Place

Sure Peyton Manning makes a ton more than President Obama, but to paraphrase Babe Ruth, he had a better year.

Angel of Waikiki


That was a close one. Editorial cartooning almost lost a guy whose opinions are as easy to caricature as that pile of elephant scat he calls a head.

Learnable Moment


John Edwards, Peter Orszag, Harry Reid, and Ben Nelson. Each one sleazy for a completely different reason.

Cameron Crazies

This was a long way to go to draw Joe Lieberman with a tail.
