I’m something of an expert on hate. I hate all kinds of things, like slow cars in the left lane and standing in line for anything. I’m especially an expert on hating presidents. I hated George W. Bush like no other president who’d come before him, even more than Richard Nixon and Lyndon Johnson, who […]

Like every other cartoonist, my week has been consumed with the death of Osama and Abbotabad, the location of the sprawling complex in the suburbs of Islamabad where bin Laden hid. How did Pakistan not know bin Laden was there? Them must have been out cashing our $1.5 billion check: One of the more peculiar […]

Tyrades! By Danny Tyree I recently read an article lamenting the fact that federal participation in commemorating the 150th anniversary of the War Between The States has been practically nil. This lackluster performance should have come as no surprise, since the U.S. is too busy meddling in everyone ELSE’S civil wars to acknowledge its own […]

Americans forget that the death of Osama bin Laden reaches well beyond our borders, and touches the lives of people around the globe. The world’s cartoonists are no different then their American counterparts, and have their own opinions about the death of the mastermind of 9/11.

After the announcement late Sunday night by President Obama that we finally found and killed Osama bin Laden, people poured out into the streets to celebrate. Even the most die-hard partisans, like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, gave credit to Obama and his administration, calling his actions a “gutsy move.” As with any big event […]

“If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.” – Isaac Newton It seems like only yesterday when crowds filled streets across America waiving hand-scripted signs vowing they would “Never Forget” the atrocities wielded against America by al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden on September 11, 2001. With American […]

Making Sense by Michael Reagan They got him. Put a couple of slugs in his face. Then they dumped his body in the sea — something for the fish, which don’t much care what they eat, to feed on. No matter how you look at it, this was a masterful stroke by a group of […]

Is the President of the United States acting uppity? Maybe that’s it. Maybe in the minds of Barack Obama’s bigoted opponents it’s one thing to elect a black guy, to have him break the barrier and take a seat in the front of the bus – but it’s quite another thing if he carries on […]
