I stumbled across something on the IRS Web site I never expected to see: quotations from great minds on taxes.

Raging Moderate, by Will Durst It’s way too early to sort out the winners and the losers in the big budget showdown on Capitol Hill the last couple weeks. They’re still extricating bodies from behind the hay bales of the Gunfight at the D.C. Corral, and will be for months. It’ll take even longer to […]

It all boils down to this. From my perch in front of the slanted board, I want the Republicans to pick a candidate who will be fun to draw. I’ve drawn Palin and Romney and even Trump and they’re not that much fun . I haven’t tried Bachmann yet but…eh…she doesn’t look that interesting. Then […]

We’ve just posted our huge Week in Review cartoon slideshow, and what’s on everyone’s mind this week? Taxes, taxes, taxes! Whether it’s the small business owner sweating bullets trying to finish his 1040 in time, or politicians on Capital Hill bickering and arguing about what out taxes can really afford, that dirty “t” word seems […]

President Obama, there you go again. Barack Obama giving a speech about the importance of fiscal restraint is like Bill Clinton talking about the importance of telling the truth.  It just doesn’t pass the smell test. The national debt has increased by $3.6 trillion on President Obama’s watch, exploding from $10.6 trillion to $14.2 trillion […]

Talk about being juiced! For years, cartoonists have been drawing cartoons about that cheating, steroid-injecting egomaniac Barry Bonds. Now, the lawyers have caught up with everyone else, convicting the former Giants slugger of obstruction of justice. To check out how cartoonists have depicted Bonds sincd breaking Hank Aaron’s home run record*, check out our new […]

John Cole, the terrific cartoonist for the Scranton Times-Tribune (click to see John’s cartoons here) alerted me to this viewo posted in the C-Span archives. It’s from 1984, and features an interview by Brian Lamb discussing the role of the editorial cartoonist with Jeff MacNelly of the Chicago Tribune, Bill D’oire of the Dallas Morning […]

In a recent speech, President Obama said that without a new energy policy, “folks will keep on makin’ conventional cars.” Better vehicles already exist he said, adding, “we don’t have to create somethin’ new.” Golly g. Is the president makin’ the trend, or just followin’ it? It’s hard to tell, but Americans really seem to […]

Barry Bonds, the former San Francisco Giants slugger that defined the steroid era of baseball, has been found guilty of obstructing justice for lying about taking performance-enhancing drugs. Is this really a surprise? Looking back at our cartoon archives, it seems that everyone came to the conclusion that Bonds was guilty of steroid use years […]

Tyrades! By Danny Tyree As Easter approaches, I am more than a little dismayed by some of the mistaken notions circulating in the nation’s Sunday schools. The name “Easter Island” indeed arose from the fact that the island’s first recorded European visitor (Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen) encountered it on Easter Sunday 1722. It did not […]
