The thing that really galls me lately is that the Bush Gang are running around free and have never been punished for their crimes. The murder of thousands of American and Iraqui people is somehow ignored by the vast amount of the American public. The one consolation is that Bush and Cheney can’t really travel […]

As the recession drags on, more and more students are finding themselves in the middle of a rock and a hard place, leaving college with large amounts of student loan debt and entering into an economy that’s having a hard time creating jobs. What do cartoonists think of this pickle? Check out our Student Loan […]

Independent’s Eye by Joe Gandelman Will the real Barack Obama please stand up? Last week’s budget melodrama that nearly led to a government shut down ended with this truth about Obama: neither his liberal base nor Republicans fear him. Both sides feel he is someone who eventually “caves.” The word “caves” is now as tiresome […]

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.

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 – […]
