Liberal Democrats, including President Barack Obama and Senators Dick Durbin and Charles Schumer, have long railed against the corruptive influence of money in politics.  This is a bit ironic considering what prolific fundraisers they have been.  President Obama raised $750 million for his 2008 campaign and is expected to raise $1 billion for his re-election […]

Boy, are accountants going through a rough patch now — even rougher than we taxpayers are. Despite software that has greatly simplified tax preparation, American accountants suffer a host of daily aggravations. They’re responsible for filing on behalf of some 82 million U.S. taxpayers and for understanding the U.S. tax code’s 5,600 incomprehensible pages, according […]

Here’s my cartoonist daughter Susie, with a cartoon article bashing greedy, for-profit colleges.

Every weekday on the Mickey Mouse radio network at 6:00 PM est right after Sean Hannity comes a guy who Hannity dubbed “The Great One”. He blusters, he lectures, he screams, he scolds, he says the most outrageous things he can think of and yet no one ever talks about him. As far as I […]

I feel sorry for Glenn Beck. I really do. The reason is that I’m beginning to come to the awful realization that he is actually crazy. Of course I’m basing this solely on my observation of his lunatic ravings, body language and general all-around demeanor… but I think I’m right. I don’t mean crazy like […]

It’s Friday, when we post our big, glorious slideshow recapping the week’s best political cartoons. This is a good one, covering everything from budget cuts to a possible government shutdown, as well as some great cartoons about a Koran-burning nutcase and some guy named Glenn Beck who got booted from his Fox News show. So […]

I’m no doctor, although I have played one on TV. But as a reasonably qualified baseball fan, I’m having a hard time diagnosing some of the maladies suffered by the nation’s best-conditioned, highest-paid, and most-pampered athletes. One of baseball’s top pitchers, the Rockies Ubaldo Jimenez, was placed on the 15-day disabled list after suffering – […]

The federal government has ramped up planning for a possible shutdown as Republicans and Democrats can’t come to an agreement on the remainder of this year’s budget. Fortunately, few cartoonists work for the federal government, so they’ll still get to opine about our disfunctional politicians even if all of Washington shuts down. To see what […]

Today, Legislative Hall in Dover is packed as the State Senate prepares to vote on a bill that would offer legal recognition same-sex couples in Delaware. Obviously, I think civil unions are a step up from the status-quo of outright discrimination against gay couples, but I would prefer they be allowed to get married just […]

Cartoonists across the nation who have become accustomed to Glenn Beck’s one-sided attacks on “progressives” and paranoid conspiracy theories must have shed their own Beck tears when Fox News announced that his show would be ending in the next few months. As a national pundit, Beck left a lot to be desired. But as a […]
