Other Syndicated Editorial Cartoons:


It's so easy to tell, by the rhetoric in these kinds of blogs, which ones are Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, et al dependents, and which ones have learned how to THINK! The former just rattle off their canned speeches like nice little parrots.

Anyone who makes less than $250,000 and votes Republican is voting AGAINST himself and his family! The Republican philosophies are programmed specifically for multi-millionaires.

However, they alway throw in a one-issue "bait" to hook these gullibles, like "gun control" or "abortions", over which NEITHER PARTY has any control in this country. But they fall for it every time. Any woman who wants an abortion is going to GET an abortion, no matter WHO is in office! But, they still haven't figured that out.

They also obviously never heard that we have a second amendment "to keep and bear arms", and they fall for the NRA's continuing to blame Democrats for the Brady Bill, which REPUBLICAN Mrs. Brady stomped for after her husband (Reagan's press secretary) was paralyzed by a gunman.

Republicans prey on that type of non-thinking ability of those who never learned how to think with their own brains. They understand the few multi-millionaire REAL Republicans aren't enough to make up a good baseball league.

The biggest problem is that most average income people who vote Republican, AGAINST themselves, will not be able to figure out what the editorial cartoon means! After all, if a person can't even figure out who butters his bread, THIS nuance could also fly over his head.

Ann, makes her endorsement for keeping all the same old liberal socialist democrats and all democrats are liberal socialists in office to continue to make the economy worse and worse and really bad and then when you go to government for your healthcare you get the boot as depicted in Ann's cartoon.

Your cartoons are interesting and make important points. The Republicans and the greedy Conservatives deserve all of the criticism they get. It is the demand side of economics that needs financial aid not the supply side of economics. The Corporations side of economics has for the last fifty years been driving the employees into slavery while they waste resources, corrupt the government and undermine the equitable distribution of wealth.

Someone once said: "Americans have two choices for President and 50 some for Miss America."

Would politics be different if the American Voter had 6-10 National Candidates and a National Primary to weed the Candidates down to 2-3 for the final election? The several State Presidental primaries and two Conventions kind of do the weeding of the Candidates, but the American voter only have two choices in the end.

I should be more like a kick to the head and it doesn't matter either way. What choices do Americans really have. Our government has become nothing more than a criminal operation run by both political parties. Jesse Ventura makes a very valid point about electronic voting machines. After voting a citizen has no record of how he voted. When going to an ATM machine you at least get a receipt. There are some of US who refuse to go along with the BIG CHARADE that has taken place in our government for way too long and our VOICES NEED TO BE HEARD and not down played or disregarded by a completely controlled and manipulated MEDIA. We refuse to be BOBBLE HEADED SHEEPLES!

Great Cartoon. Many of us relate this to the 2008 election! The American Voter was sure fooled by the DNC and Obama. Can America survive another 2 years??

The voters in the primaries voted to throw the incumbent liberal RINOs out in favor of new blood that is more Constitutionally, Patriotic and Conservative and in-step with the voter's wishes. This November is going to be interesting . . . if we have fair elections. Time to throw all of the bumbs out of office (for those non-representing Representatives that fit the description)!

God Bless America - We sure need it!

It won't be a boot coming at our posteriors, and the look of shock and surprise will be much greater. If the gop should capture one or both houses of congress expect breadlines by next summer.

Great cartoon. Obviously you've pulled it from the Nov. 2008 archives.

You hit it on the nail, Ann!

Vote Republican, and you can sure bet they will end up kicking us in the wahoo's some more.

You should have added a hammer to the head.

Republican vote, Boot, hammer, Republican vote, boot, hammer, Republican vote, boot, hammer, Republican vote, boot, hammer, Republican vote, boot, hammer, Republican vote, boot, hammer in that sequence.

Hope your right! Kind of hard after the last few years. There are a great deal of wealthy powerful unions, individuals, corporations and news outlets who now have been given the green light to spend all they want to control and influence our politicians through political contributions. That goes for the Democrats and the Republicans!

Great 'toon !

Have more faith! You must understand the Chamber of Commerce is shelling out 1.5 million a day to defeat Obama. You have the healthcare insurance people coming after him. You have Wallstreet coming after him. What they are doing is getting us to fight amongst each other and to be honest it did work! for a while, but the DEMOCRATS have much more logical, rational independent thinkers than the GOP has.

Why do you think the GOP lost more stable incumbent in the primaries than the DEMS...because they are gullible and naive along with their bigotry...THEY WON'T WIN

Looks like the American people are ready to put back into power those that created the mess we are in!The strategist met in January 08 mapped out a course of innuendo,scare tactics, political stalling, denial and misinformation. Using faux news outlets,pundits and clever red-herring issues they have convinced the public to vote them back into power. You think we have partisanship and gridlock now wait till the new Congress meets.
