The Week’s Best Cartoons: About That Red Wave

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve shared TokyoSand’s weekly collection of political cartoons, so I thought this week would be a good time to share them with you.  Care to take any guesses as to what the main topic on the cartoonists’ collective mind was this week?  Yep, the U.S. elections and that ‘red wave’ that so many had pinned their hopes on but that failed to materialize.  Now that most of us have breathed a faint sigh of relief, we can have a few laughs over it.  Thank you, TS, for finding the best cartoons for us this week!


Despite the Republican Party and most of the media buying into the prediction of a red wave, it never materialized on Election Night. In fact, this is the first time since 1936 that the sitting president’s party didn’t lose a single state legislative chamber in a midterms! For all of you who voted, this is what you made happen. Enjoy!


That last one is my FAVOURITE!!!  Be sure to check out all the rest of the cartoons over at Political Charge!

  1. Can someone please help me to understand WHY the student loan program was blocked a day after the midterm elections? Since the beginning of the Ukraine war, the US alone spent well over $100 BILLION?? Sounds like another Vietnam boondoggle to me… this is why citizens can’t have nice things, all the money goes to waste aka lining politicians’ pockets.

    • Yes, and now if Warnock wins on December 6th in the Georgia runoff, the Democrats will have 51 seats in the Senate. WHOO HOO!!!! And, there is still a chance, albeit slim, of the Democrats keeping their majority in the House, as well.
