Sandy Hook Elementary

Sometimes there’s nothing to say. I thought of Bill Mauldin’s Lincoln cartoon the day Kennedy died and drew this.

Benghazi



Update: I incorrectly identified Cindy Sheehan’s son, Casey, as a Marine in the original version of this cartoon. Sorry for the error.

As I  watched Meet the Press Sunday morning, Carly Fiorina was answering a question about the election and tried to drag in a point about the Benghazi attack. David Gregory pulled her up short, saying he’d get to that later. Except that he never did. Neither did any of the other Sunday shows.

I got the idea for this cartoon from this IBD editorial, noting the lack of a Benghazi media feeding frenzy. Here’s a column by David Ignatius about weak  Benghazi coverage. And here’s a CBS report by Sharyl Attkisson that proves the exception to the idea Fox has a monopoly on the story.

Ohio Trick or Treat


Trick or treat cartoon. Couple answers door and say "how cute, you must be Romney and Obama."

Need an errand run for you in Ohio? Call a presidential candidate. Time puts it this way – “Ohio isn’t just ground zero in the Electoral College. It’s also an epicenter for one of the biggest ad binges in history. The campaigns have forked over $177 million to win Ohio, more than any other state, according to an NBC analysis.”

Flipping the Big Bird

It turns out  Big Bird is a Fat Cat.

Sesame Street has asked the Obama campaign to pull down an ad giving the Bird to Romney.

Obama Foreign Policy

 

Osama bin Laden is dead and al Qaeda is on the run…well…running through burning American embassies where it tortures and drags off dead ambassadors.

The UN General Assembly opened in New York on Monday. The Celebrity of the United States went there for serious talks with the world leaders of The View. He appeared with his wife, Michelle (airbrushed out of the image above), and quipped,”I’ve been told I’m eye candy here“. No, really, he did. I think it came from the same teleprompter voice that told him, “Harry, I have a gift”.

Victor Davis Hanson has a piece called The Fantasy House of Barack Obama. I recommend it to you.
