Just think, if liberals put the same amount of effort figuring out what they
believe in (let me rephrase...figuring out what to *tell* people that
liberals believe in) as is put into making cartoons, then perhaps they would
have a shot at the ballot box.
Of course we all know thatall liberal politicians generally moonlight
as flash cartoonists.
As opposed to Rove, Cheney, Bush, Delay & Rumsfeld. We all know what
they believe in. Creationism, Arab Democracy, FEMA efficacy, a
Pro-life supreme court, and making their friends richer and staying in
power at any cost. Now those are ideals worth voting for.
I've seen many of them. But after you hear the same joke over and over,
it's like "OK, I get it. The President is very stupid." It's like here at
work. I'm doing a IT consulting gig for a high school. Normally, one of
the junior engineers does this, but since he's out for his daughter's birth,
I check all graphic attachments that come in via email. Naturally, some of
them are funny. Until you see them for the 1 billionth time.
I don't think the Republicans are any more virtuous than the Democrats,
because above all, they're all politicians. It's just for the past several
years, Republicans have been better at getting their message out. The
Democrats haven't had a message, they admit it, and they tell us they're
working on one. Their only consistent message is "we hate Bush", which
plays to the kook left, but hasn't proven to win elections yet. Also, note
to Democrats...Bush isn't running for re-election.
But definitely keep Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Howard Dean front and
center. As long as they're running the show, especially Dean, Democrats
aren't winning anything. Oh, and make sure to nominate Hillary, too. I may
take a Democrat primary ballot in 2007 to vote for her.
Damn. That's a surprise. Bush isn't running for term #3. But he's doing
such a piss poor job at the moment, and for the past years, that he's
dragging the Republican party down with him, both for the '06 and '8
elections, unless he changes his ways.
Some great job of getting the story out. You must have quit paying
attention at least a year ago.
I don't think there was a lot of Bush love for the last elections, and they
weren't a disaster for Republicans. And if you think the Democrats are
poised for sure victory in the next elections, you haven't been paying
attention for a lot longer than a year.
Regardless which sides of the political fences you are in, it wouldn't
hurt you to go there to see the brillant creative cartoons. Believe me
it's as good as Walt Disney "Mickey Mouse."
I not here to change anyone mind nor to impose mine. However, I find
the cartoons very creative and good. Everyone should take time off
from woodworking and look at it. Than, they can decide the quality and
creativity of the cartoons.

Having looked at them, that pretty much indicates your world-view and
perspective. I have seen political cartoons that poke fun at people of
either party that I have found funny and creative. These cartoons are
neither. If you are a vehement detractor of the current administration,
you will find these cartoons sympathetic to your world-view and opinions,
but even then, an honest assessment would not really place them at the
category of "creative" nor "quite good". One of the key things about humor
is that it must contain a kernel of truth to be funny; if your worldview is
such that you believe Bush to be second only to the anti-Christ, then you
most likely will think that there is the required element of truth in these
to be funny. If you don't hold that worldview, they will appear only as
If you're gonna be dumb, you better be tough
<<< One of the key things about humor is that it must contain a kernel of

If truth was of interest here one might note that the Democratic alternative
to Mr. Bush, one John Kerry, finally released his college grades months
after the election and surprise, they are worse than the "C student"
currently occupying the office. What's the old saying about the log in the
Besides, the two smartest Presidents in recent history, Nixon and Carter,
were unmitigated disasters. So why don't you give it a rest, or at the very
least, find some new material, preferably at an adult level.
The US penchant for disliking intelligent politicians has always puzzled
me. Nixon was a disaster because he was a crook. Carter was a
disaster because he couldn't lead. In neither case did their
intelligence have anything to do with it.
OTOH, "intelligent politician" may be an oxymoron. Nobody in their
right mind would want the job.
