The Week’s Best Cartoons 10/1

I seem to have a bouncing mind this weekend for I have three separate posts in process, but haven’t managed to finish a single one of them!  So, I figured there’s no better time than the present to see what cartoons our friend TokyoSand has managed to dig up for us!  Naturally, Hurricane Ian is front and center, as is Putin’s brutal war against Ukraine, but there is even more.  These are only a sampling, so be sure to visit TokyoSand at Political Charge to see the rest! Thank you, TS, for finding the best offerings of the cartoonists this week!

Florida and Ukraine were in the eye of the news for most of this week, with of course, other important stories sprinkled in. Here’s how the nation’s editorial cartoonists covered them.

Be sure to check out the rest of the ‘toons!

  1. Jill, interesting comments today by General David Petraeus about Putin. He said if Putin uses nuclear weapons, he would pay a huge price to his military. He also noted he has suffered huge losses on the battlefield, so to annex territory he is being driven out of is a little like grasping at straws.

    As for DeSantis and Rick Scott before him, ignoring climate change for years with so many at risk parts of their state is poor stewardship. Given its size, Miami is the most at risk city in the world to rising sea levels, yet little attention is paid to the sunny day flooding that goes on there. Hurricanes are bigger and more powerful and with rising seas, come ashore with greater potency. It is like dunking a basketball with an elevated court.

    As for the former president, his comments border on the irrelevant as they show only a desire to polish his tarnished apple. If he wants to be taken seriously, he needs to act and speak with serious-mindedness rather than whatever he does now.

    • Where did you find the article by General Petraus? If you have a link, I would like to read that. He is a savvy man, and what he says is true … Putin has lost far too much and too many to be considered in a position of strength, thus he falls back on the nuclear threat. Would he use it? I can’t say he wouldn’t, for a cornered animal is a dangerous one, and he is, it seems to me, finding himself close to being hemmed into a corner. Does he, at some point, decide that whatever it takes to prove his strength, even if it destroys his own country, is worth it? Hard to know what men without consciences are thinking … same can be said for the former guy.

      I can easily foresee the entirety of Florida being taken over by the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico within a few short years, and for Scott & DeSantis to deny climate change is for them to sign the execution papers of their constituents. Worse, though, is that they would not be where they are were it not for the votes of the same constituents. People just need to wake up and see through the rhetoric of their politicos!!!

      The former guy … just needs to sit down and shut up. The media needs to STOP giving him more column space than they give President Biden! And people need to put him where he belongs, in the annals of history. He is never going to change … he is a megalomaniac and out for only himself … that won’t change. But the public attitude toward him can certainly change, and MUST do so. All the attention is feeding his already bloated ego.


    • Absolutely! These days, the political cartoons are understandably a bit darker than usual, but still … so much talent to say in one picture what it would take a thousand words or more to convey.
