Cartoon Thursday

[ Posted Thursday, August 26th, 2010 – 17:21 UTC ]

We're going to take a cartoon break today, because I have not just one but actually two cartoons waiting in the wings from C.W. Cunningham. I'm going to post them separately here, because the second one needs its own title. The first shows a different perspective of an earlier cartoon.

Bear-ing Arms

[ Posted Monday, July 5th, 2010 – 19:40 UTC ]

Instead, as a surprise, we welcome back our in-house cartoonist who has been held captive by a roving band of wild secretaries. Ransom is being asked on the order of seven dollars and 42 cents, but so far, no takers. He managed to get this cartoon smuggled out with the aid of a trained squirrel.

Friday Talking Points [91] -- Win One For Teddy

[ Posted Friday, August 28th, 2009 – 16:57 UTC ]

Republicans, masters of chutzpah that they are, have launched a pre-emptive strike against "politicizing" Senator Edward Kennedy's funeral with unseemly Democratic ideals. This should be so ridiculous as to endanger Americans' health from side-splitting laughter, but (Democrats being Democrats) it might just work.

American Motors General Survives Hummer Sale To China

[ Posted Thursday, June 4th, 2009 – 16:54 UTC ]

[Full Disclosure: I have never owned a Hummer. I have never even ridden in one. I have, however, owned quite a few Ramblers over the years. I was offered no compensation of any type for writing this article from AM General, who can still be found in South Bend, Indiana, right where they've always been. Even if they had offered me a Hummer, I would have turned it down (where the heck would I park the thing?!?). But if someone wants to offer me a fully-restored 1969-and-a-half AMC-Hurst SC/Rambler with a 390 cubic-inch V8 engine and four-speed transmission, I will gladly write glowing articles on whatever subject they suggest. I'm just saying, every man's got his weak spot....]

Election Day News Lead?

[ Posted Thursday, October 30th, 2008 – 17:16 UTC ]

While the news from Election Night is going to be all about losers and winners from various parts of the country, I think that the news from Election Day is going to be similar across a large number of states. I'm talking about what the news story will be before the returns actually start [...]

How To Fix The Economy

[ Posted Thursday, September 25th, 2008 – 15:56 UTC ]

Instead, we have the return of our in-house cartoonist! While it may have appeared to the public that CWCunningham was in an undisclosed location these past few months, he and I were actually colloborating on a video, in an effort to get (you can't make this stuff up) a liberal lobbying firm on K Street interested in our idea. But, sadly, it came to naught. But this week's financial meltdown proved to be too hard for him to resist, so we proudly present his take on the situation.

The Day After We Bomb Iran

[ Posted Wednesday, July 9th, 2008 – 14:00 UTC ]

[This column is as appropriate today as when I wrote it. The only thing that needs changing is what is considered "astronomical" for a barrel of oil. Analysts are now predicting $200 or $300 a barrel (or even higher) were America or Israel to attack Iran. But I think that all the other points are still as valid now as when I originally wrote this last fall.]
