Campaign Swag Bag
The primaries have just begun, and the party in-fighting will get even more heated for another month or so, making social media a veritable wasteland of outrage and insufferability. When the dust settles and the nominee is known, they’ll have to kiss and make up with the supporters of the candidates they’ve spent all […]

Climate Change Denial Winter Exercises
Denying climate change exists because it’s cold out is just the tip of the rapidly melting denial iceberg. Unfortunately it’s a well-funded iceberg that’s kept afloat by the indifference of folks who’ll be dead before they’ll have to deal with the consequences of their consumption. Read the comic at The New York Times.

Whitewash
There was immediate criticism when this year’s Oscar nominations came out and were revealed to be as white as the Northeast after last weekend’s blizzard. Defenders of the Academy used these and many more techniques in their attempts to refute the criticism, most famously with Charlotte Rampling’s and Julie Delpy’s uninformed remarks. I don’t receive […]

Skinflint, Michigan
The residents of Flint, Michigan have been drinking poisoned water for years. It took a national outcry for Michigan’s governor to finally declare an emergency; an emergency created by his administration. This totally avoidable disaster will be conveniently forgotten the next time austerity proponents want to impose cuts on poor communities to fund tax […]

The Social Justice Militia
The Bundy clan are back in the news for making a big show against the tyranny of below-market federal grazing fees. If anybody else took up arms and pulled a similar stunt to advocate for something that actually mattered, they’d be dead before the first press conference. Of course, unarmed peaceful […]

2016 Election Survival Kit
It’s almost time for actual primary votes to be cast in the presidential campaign that began even before the last one ended in 2012. This is the fourth election I’ve endured since making the questionable decision to become an editorial cartoonist. These campaigns suck more and more oxygen from other important […]

The GOP's Winter Wonderland
Unlike Frosty the Snowman, the Trump campaign the GOP brought to life won’t go away when the temperatures rise. We’re just over a month away from the primaries and we’ll find out if Trump’s poll numbers translate into votes and make the GOP’s decades of implicit racism explicit. Read the […]

Holiday Gift Warnings
The Consumer Product Safety Commission is investigating “hoverboards” for spontaneous combustion, but not false advertising. The CPSC has the regulatory power to force companies to issue costly recalls and warnings if their products are dangerous. Unless those companies make guns, which are exempt, because the NRA writes the laws. Read the comic at […]

Reactionary Recipe
Trump’s overtly bigoted campaign is just a spicier version of the hate the G.O.P. has been serving up for decades. And the base is eating it up to the dismay of the Republican establishment, who prefer to rile up the base just enough to enact tax cuts and dismantle social services. […]

A Gun Culture Christmas
There were more mass shootings last week, and so I’ve drawn another cartoon about it. I’m feeling like the woman in the second panel, out of ink to spill on the subject long before this blood-soaked country runs out of ammo. Santa’s naughty list and the FBI’s no-fly list are both not […]

Modest Climate Change Goal
The U.N. Climate Conference is going on in Paris, and maybe everyone will agree to modest means-based reductions in carbon emissions at some point in the future. It won’t be enough. The world is run by old people who won’t have to live with the consequences of their inaction, and […]

Profiles in Cowardice
After the attacks in Paris, the Republicans, along with some spineless Democrats, devolved into the same panicky imbeciles that turned this country bonkers after 9/11. That insanity is what led me to political cartooning 14 years ago, and to see it return all these years later is incredibly heartbreaking. Thankfully, there’s been […]
