Greetings progressives and cartoon lovers! I’m dropping this note to say I’m going on safari for a while … not actually traveling to Africa (Covid!) but metaphorically speaking. New adventures are calling and there’s only so much time in the day, week etc. I don’t know how long I’ll be traversing my symbolic Serengeti, but if you follow me on social media or subscribe to my Sunday newsletter you’ll be the first to know about [...]

Limbaugh’s Goodbye and Good Riddance Will Be Trump’s One Day Too

Posted By oliveamerica 240 days ago on Politics

If there’s any doubt about how contemporaries will view the life and impact of Donald Trump, look no farther than how voices large and small weighed in on news of Rush Limbaugh’s death this week. The conservative media blowhard lost his battle with cancer at age 70 on Wednesday, and within minutes love poured in from the extremist right, but was quickly doused by those who loathed the controversial radio host. Views expressed on social [...]

Decades of Cartoons Define Rush Limbaugh’s Toxic Legacy

Posted By oliveamerica 241 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
This fascinating collection of nearly 50 Rush Limbaugh cartoons (from the archives of my subscription service going back to 2003) is part stroll down memory lane, but mostly a jarring recap of the controversial radio host’s impact on American culture and conservative politics. Limbaugh, the original bigoted conspiracy theorist, was the precursor to Donald Trump. I posited this week that the quick chorus of goodbye and good riddance that emerged upon news of Limbaugh’s death will [...]

Cruz Ditches Frozen Texans for Cancun Vacation – Is Now a Good Time To Break Out the Ted-With-Penis-Hands Cartoon?

Posted By oliveamerica 242 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
This is a rhetorical question. Of course it’s the perfect time to feature this delightful (and layered) cartoon by illustrator Billy Leake that I’ve been saving for just such a moment. And I suspect cartoonists are hard at work today parodying Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) escape to an all-inclusive Mexican resort while his constituents freeze and starve back home — which I’ll dutifully collect in my usual weekend roundup of the week’s political cartoons. I [...]

From The Big Lie to The Big Reveal – Three Big Impeachment Wins for Progressives

Posted By oliveamerica 244 days ago on Politics

https://cartoonstate.com - This post originally appeared at cartoon state.com.
Now that everyone’s simmered down and weighing in on Saturday’s impeachment verdict, I’d like to point out that progressives are actually the true winners from last week’s political drama. Let’s take a pause from the whining and bitching to consider these three key gains as fallout from the trial. Trump has been neutered, rendered ineffectual from public life and politics that matter Yes the twice-impeached one-term ex and worst president of all time, Donald J. [...]
