    Default POLITICAL Cartoons.

    In deference to the wishes of our resident MInister of Love and Fury In the Name of God, the venerable and celebrated Tom F (take a bow, Tom), I hereby dedicate this thread to political cartoons.

    To lead off, I submit these explorations of the Ted Cruz is a re-incarnation of Joe McCarthy:

    I'm not too worried.

    Ratfreakers don't really DO humor, so it will most likely be pretty one-sided.

    Sorta like the coming election.

    Can someone tell me how to post a pic which was shared on someone's FaceBook page?

    Right click on it, and select 'open in a new tab'.

    Once it opens in the new tab, right click on the image, and select 'copy image address'.... you can then use that URL with the standard picture posting mechanism in the forum.

    In Firefox, I just right-click, copy image and paste directly into the post.

    Actually, it appears the GOP is more into hating the USA by their actions.

    As an example; McNuggets thinks the people should decide who is nominated to the SC and won't hold any meetings to affirm or not the current nominee. Well, McNuggets, 67-70% (polls) of republicans approve of giving Garland an opportunity to be on the SC. McNuggets IS NOT LISTENING to the people is he?

    ^ a picture worth 1k^nth words..

    the thing is, while those with compassion look at it and go 'the hypocrisy, the horror - the other lives matter as much', the haters look at it and go 'yeah, that's the way it should be'. Imagine one pic, valued equally (& oppositely), by two so different demographics.

    Cartoon, illustration or fine art? I'll let the experts decide.

    Remember when Joey Lieberman was being considered for McCain's running mate?

    The caption for this one is, "And then, he taxed all your money and gave it away to the poor."



    Remember troopergate?

    I know, it seemed like a reminder that politics have been pretty goofy in the past, too. You know, to sorta quell some of the current political angst around here.

    Bear with me, I'll work my way up to 2016.

    These are even better than the "cartoon thread cartoons", and they are all so true.

    It's certainly fertile ground for GOP political cartoons. I'd like to thank Trump, Cruz, and most of the GOP for their insightful contributions.
