I loved your cartoons about the whole Weiner issue. I really liked the cartoon you did a few weeks ago about Arnold Schwarzenegger coming from the future to “kick himself in the butt”. LOL!!!

Several of your cartoons feature a man and a woman commenting on a news topic or issue. Out of curiosity, do these people have names (you may have written them in before and I just missed it) and who was the muse for their creation?

hi anson
weiner’s a huge disappointment. another example of stupidity. vitter didn’t resign and he actually had sex with prostitutes. weiner’s constituent’s will soon get to decide whether they want him to remain.

haha, thank you. every day is fun for me. sometimes the topics are harder to draw cartoons on than others, but this job’s always a blast. i may do something today on delta charging those troops a baggage fee. what a bad pr move.

How about how the media goes for what brings ratings, instead of going for what is most important regarding the progression of ethics (the only thing worth living for); do you agree that is a problem created by capitalist driven commercial media which is beholden to share holders instead of to wellbeing at large?

Mike you have only one side to your humor and that’s the liberal perverted corrupt democrats attack on conservatives. You are so bias. Just like the rest of the corrupt lamestreet media. AJC and the racist Cynthia Tucker as well. How come you don’t make fun of Obama and his thugs in his administration?

I’ll chime in here: Mike is biased, as we all should be, in favor of evidence-based rational thinking in some important regards anyway. Everyone should be biased against conservative thinking: we should all be intellectually liberal & morally liberal!

I’ll also ad, “Obama & his thugs” is racial language; it’s like that phrase “Obama’s drive-by administration”… racist tongue-in-cheek language. President Obama’s work isn’t excellent, but compared to the conservative alternative he does a great job… Mike makes fun of President Obama, but making fun of each side in politics, equally, is not called for always, because each side is not equally stupid, ignorant and/or immoral.

TruthBe, give me a few examples or any examples of cynthia’s racism. the cartoon i drew yesterday hit anthony weiner, a democrat. you’re correct about me being a “liberal perverted corrupt democrat.” that’s what’s printed on my business card.

You may be asking too much, Mike…looking for rational thought from someone who types “You are so bias.”

To today’s commenters from a blog administrator: We’re having trouble with the posting time of some of the comments, as some of you may have noticed. Sometimes the response to a comment may post before the intial comment. Our tech people are working on the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Mike,

Great work as usual. I definitely think you should hit on the Delta-soldier baggage fee.

My granddaddy always said, “A struck dog will holler.” Mike, you make the hypocrites holler. You’ve done great work all these years, and I just want to say thanks for all these years of laughs.

Sorry had to take so business calls. Mike all you have to do is read her column. Almost everything she writes about is black this or black that. I should have said that she is also mean spirited as well. Mike here’s a challenge let’s see if you have the backbone to go away Obama and his administration with your cartoons during this up comming election. There is SO much material with this jackass of a President who is a complete fauld. Mike I know you have talent but so do I. I’m not a profressional cartoonist like you but I was my schools cartoonist in HS and College.
