Standard Christmas Gift Return Cartoon

This is the time of the year cartoonists like to head over to the gift return department. Just draw a dissatisfied customer returning some unwanted political gift and presto, it’s back to the holiday schnapps.

My offering this year concerns Nancy Pelosi’s gifts of Christmas present and Christmas past.

The House impeached President Trump just in time for Christmas 2019. Ten years ago The Senate rushed Obamacare through on Christmas Eve. Speaker Pelosi said they had to pass the bill to find out what’s in it. But they’re still not sure.

In 2012The Supreme Court upheld The Affordable Care Act by calling the individual mandate to buy insurance a tax. But in 2017 Congress reduced the mandate to zero. So last month an appeals court ruled that if there’s no revenue there’s no tax, and killed the mandate. Then the court sent the case back to a judge in Texas who says with no mandate there can be no Obamacare. Got that?

Cheers!

Mayor Mike Milks Culture War

Bloomberg, chick-fil-a, social justice warriors, cancel culture

President Obama warned Democrats that average Americans don’t want to tear down the system. But it seems some Democratic Primary candidates do. Michael Bloomberg figures he’s just the antidote for that problem. He’s no radical. In fact he was a Republican before he identified as a Democrat. Come to think of it, he was a Democrat before transitioning to Republican. And all without surgery. He’s his own bipartisan caucus. And he’s thinking about tossing his hat in the ring.

Mayor Mike

While Bloomberg was a Republican mayor of New York he supported the police Stop and Frisk program. And the murder rate plunged from 650 a year to 300 during his reign of terror. It’s true that most of those stopped and frisked were minorities, but then so were most of the murder victims. The murder decline could be a coincidence. But what politician wouldn’t take credit for it anyway? Um, Mayor Mike wouldn’t. He apologized for supporting Stop and Frisk.

As for Chick-fil-A, its CEO Dan Cathy is an evangelical Christian. And he tries to run his business by Christian principles. One of those principles was serving the poor through donations to the Salvation Army. But that upset culture warriors. That’s because the Salvation Army holds a traditional view of marriage. Like Obama sort of did, until he didn’t.

But Chick-fil-A needs to make money to do good. So, in an effort to get the world to eat more chicken, the company trimmed the Salvation Army from its Christmas list.

Red-faced About Virginia Blackface Succession

The first time I heard of Dr. Ralph Northam was when a campaign ad hit the news during his recent run for governor of Virginia. The ad portrayed Northam’s Republican opponent Ed Gillespie as a racist pervert in a pickup truck  terrifying small children.

Next time I heard of the good doctor he was Governor Northam. And he was describing how a baby surviving a late term abortion would be kept comfortable while the parents and doctors decided its fate.

Then came the two guys in klan gear and blackface on his med school yearbook page. Followed by his moonwalk press conference and his confession that he dressed in blackface for a Michael Jackson dance contest. He says he won.

Red-faced

Red-faced Democratic elites called for his resignation. Until the next in line of succession, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, was accused of sexual assault. (Btw, he’s being represented by Brett Kavanaugh’s attorney while his accuser is represented by Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney.)

Anyway, next man up is Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring. Oops, more blackface.

Next in line? Virginia House Speaker Kirk Cox, a Republican

Here’s the Gillette ad directed at customers who may be underachieving in the best a man can be category. But ADWEEK says the ad was a hit with Gillette’s real target audience – women.

Christine Blasey Ford Presents Award

The publisher of the popular Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue gave its Inspiration of the Year award to Rachael Denhollander. Rachel was the first to accuse Dr. Larry Nasser of sexually abusing her as a young gymnast under his care. And over 150 other other victims came forward to corroborate her story.

Here testimony put Dr. Nasser in prison for 175 years. And his employer, Michigan State University, paid $500 million in settlements to 332 victims. Vox has has an in depth story of what happened here.

Christine Blasey Ford Presents Award

Christine Blasey Ford made a video presentation of the award. She claims to be a victim too. She accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of molesting her at a high school party. But no one corroborated her story. Nor could she remember when or where the alleged assault happened or how she got there or got home.

Judge Kavanaugh was put on the U.S. Supreme Court.
