The Week’s Best Cartoons 6/18

Yet another week and more of the best political ‘toons from our friend TokyoSand over at Political Charge.  Time was that these would make me laugh … and I still take my hat off to the great talents of these cartoonists … but today they make me want to cry more than laugh.  Thank you, TS, for all your hard work!

Below is a small sample … be sure to head over to TokyoSand’s place to see … the rest of the story!

The Week’s Best Cartoons 6/11

There always seems to be one topic at the forefront that gets the most attention from the political cartoonists, and this week it is no surprise that it’s the televised hearings of the House Committee that has been tasked with investigating the events leading up to and during the attempted coup on January 6, 2021.  And the second most popular topic, again understandably, is the gun insanity that has swept this nation.  As she does so brilliantly every week, TokyoSand has gone through them and selected the ‘pick of the litter’ for our cartoon viewing pleasure.  Please do click on the link at the end of this post to see all the cartoons, for what I have here is but a small sampling.  Thank you once again, TS!


Here’s how editorial cartoonists covered the start of the January 6th Committee hearings.

The Week’s Best Cartoons 6/4

I don’t know how she does it, but our friend TokyoSand over at Political Charge always manages to find the best of the week’s political cartoons.  Not a lot to laugh about these days, folks, but the ‘toons are still awesome and depict our lives with few or no words in a way that lengthy essays cannot do.  Be sure to follow the link at the end to see the many more ‘toons she has chosen this week.  Thank you, TS, for all your hard work!


The same gun debate rages on and on, yet editorial cartoonists find new angles to cover it. I remain, as always, in awe of their talent.

The Week’s Best Cartoons: Tragedy in Uvalde

As you might imagine, the main (only) topic of the ‘toons this week is the horrific mass murder at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, that took the lives of 19 children and two teachers.  And as she does each week, our friend TokyoSand has scanned the news sources and found the best of the ‘toons.  Be forewarned, though … there is no humour here today, only broken hearts, anger, and grief.  Still, the cartoonists have managed to put into a single picture what our own hearts are trying to say.  Please be sure to follow the link at the bottom to see the rest of the ‘toons.  Thank you, TS.


Editorial cartoons are very specific — they respond and react to current events. But what struck me this week as I watched cartoonists share their work on Twitter, was that it was sometimes hard to distinguish which cartoons were drawn in reaction to the Uvalde massacre this week, and which were responding to to previous mass shootings.

The deathly chill that came over me when I realized that most editorial cartoons about gun violence in America are evergreen…

The Week’s Best Cartoons 5/21 by TokyoSand

This week the cartoonists had plenty of material to work with from right-wing conspiracy theories to the temporary shortage of infant formula to the mid-term primaries.  As she always does so well, TokyoSand has culled the cream of the crop for us and I have copied just a few of them here, but be sure to visit Political Charge (link at bottom) for the rest, for there are some real winners there!  Thank you, TS, for all you do!


There are many more over at Political Charge, so be sure to check out the rest of the ‘toons!

TokyoSand’s Week’s Best Political Cartoons

As she always does, TokyoSand has taken the time to scour the media for the best political ‘toons of the week.  Political cartoons are appealing because they sum up a situation using few or no words, whereas the rest of us require hundreds or even thousands of words to try to explain the why, what, when, where and hows of what is happening in our world.  Thank you, TS, for all your hard work in finding these gems!


This is only a sampling, so be sure to check out the rest of the ‘toons at TokyoSand’s Political Charge!!!

The Week’s Best Cartoons 4/23

I thought this would be a good time to take a look at TokyoSand’s weekly political cartoon post and see what cool ‘toons she’s found for us.  Naturally, the central topic of discussion is Ron DeSantis and his ban on fact-based education, his retributive action against Disney that will harm the people of Florida far more than it will harm Disney, but there were a few other topics as well.  I especially liked the one about Tucker Carlson!  Thank you, TS, for all your hard week finding the best of the bunch!


Here are some of the great editorial cartoons I saw this week. A lot of cartoonists were focused on the, well, fascism coming out of Florida.

The Week’s Best Cartoons 4/16

Each Saturday, our friend TokyoSand over at Political Charge scours the ‘net for the best, most relevant political cartoons of the week.  Political cartoonists have a tremendous talent, an ability to sum up a situation with few or no words, only a drawing.  This week is no exception and I really hope you’ll visit Tokyo’s site to view them all, but below is a sampling of this week’s best ‘toons!


Here’s a smattering of great editorial cartoons I saw this past week.

The Week’s Best Cartoons 4/2

Y’know … some days even the political cartoons raise my hackles, but I must admit they are dead-on accurate and say as much at a glance as some of the OpEd writers can say in 1,000 words.  And so, each week I head over to Political Charge where TokyoSand has compiled the best of the best from the week.  This week is no exception and I think you’ll agree with the take of most of those drawing the ‘toons.  Oh, if only I had such artistic talent … I could be rich and famous!!!  I wonder …

Anyway, here is a sampling of Tokyo’s Toons and I hope you’ll follow the link at the bottom and head over to her place to check out the rest!  Thank you as always, TS!

There were a lot of different news stories that got traction this week, as evidenced by the range of cartoons I saw. Here are some of the best ones, in my opinion.
