Not your father's GOP

We have friends visiting us from California this week. One of them has his PhD so it's really intellectually challenging to debate politics with him. He suggested the idea for the above cartoon to me. This will run in the Aug. 30 issue.

Good Riddence

After our back-to-school teacher meetings, I SHOULD have been cleaning my classroom or getting ready for school to start Wednesday, but I was so excited about the great architect leaving, I had to do this one a week early.

Roid Monster

So, first I drew each of the baseball legends. Ruth as a little frumpy and tubby, Aaron as pretty much a nice guy, and Barry -as Bob Costas recently described him, "super-human."
Next, I put them together in PhotoShop and saved it as a TIFF to use in the Charter Oak-Ute NEWSpaper and Schleswig LEADER.

Finally, I went back to PhotoShop and added color so that it would be a little more fun on by blog and other webpages. Then I emailed it to my favorite baseball fans. Who no doubt, will chastise me because I used the Atlanta Brave's logo rather than the Milwaukee Brave's logo and I got the Giant's uniform all wrong. But hey, like I said on my column blog, if he played for Oakland, he'd be green like the Incredible Hulk that he is.

Bush #43; Nixon II

Did you know that John Mitchell was the commander of JFK's PT boat group in WWII? Weird coincidence. But hey, Rupert Murdoch supports Hillary Clinton, and Ken Starr's law firm has contributed more to her campaign than to the top 4 Republican candidates combined.

I don't know, maybe this is dull as political cartoons go. I was to lazy to use color this week. I like the smoke from Mitchell's pipe, though. I'm worried that I'm getting in a rut of just doing caricatures with captions. Hopefully my brain will come up with something different next week.
