The Week’s Best Cartoons 5/8

Yesterday, our friend TokyoSand published her weekly roundup of political cartoons and there is just to much material right now that I don’t know how she can even decide which ones to choose!  She does always manage, though, to pick the best of the lot, and this week is no exception.  Most of them, you’ll notice, feature the Republican Party as the brunt of the joke … a position they have worked hard to earn!  Thank you, TS, for your hard work on these ‘toon posts!

  1. Do you remember those more innocent days, when on mentioning republicans you just thought of rich guys, country clubs, middle class folk concerned about respectability, blue collar folk who drank a beer or three, worried about their sports team and didn’t like weirdos, or folk who just believed in a commerce driven system was the best way for America?
    And your only concern about them was maybe making a detrimental remark about that blue collar guy’s team.

    • Oh yes, I well remember those days. And, back in those days, at least there were rules, and most people were somewhat well-versed in political issues. Today, someone cremated the rule book and people bothering to think or to educate themselves. The latter, I put down to the internet that has made the spread of lies so simple, and has made people so lazy.

      • Yep. That is so. Although the net has made the disease spread quicker, that’s all.
        Take a look at these quotes from Horace Walpole a British Prime Minister in the mid-18th Century:

        “Patriots! I could raise fifty of them within four and twenty hours. I have raised many of them in one night. ’Tis but to refuse an unreasonable demand, and up springs a patriot.” -1741


        “The very idea of true patriotism is lost, and the term has been prostituted to the very worst of purposes. A patriot, sir! Why, patriots spring up like mushrooms! “
