Mega Friday Nite Lite: Open ThreadPosted: June 15, 2012
Tonight is my last post before I head to the swamp…by that I mean Washington, D.C. I was eleven the last time I went to DC…let’s see if the Hall of Dinosaurs is closed like it was way back then. One thing is for damn sure, my dad will not be able to lift my fatass this time so I can look through the little window on the exhibit’s locked doors.
Anyway, it is also exciting because while we are in DC, I am getting my tattoo done, the one that Tashi designed for me. So…my family is in for a good time and I cannot wait.
With all that being said, here is your Friday Nite Lite post, enjoy!
Syria has been one of those stories that seems to be never-ending. So let’s start by taking a look at some editorial cartoons on the Russian Connection.
For another take…
And just one more:
Oh boy, now we head to the states, first let’s start with my Banjoville State of Georgia:
Florida, you’re up next…here we go!
Oooweee! Let’s hear it for Wisconsin, Hoot…Hoot!
That one about Wisconsin is a good segue into the next cartoon…on corporate money:
And with that we come to the GOP section of this political editorial mega post.
This one is by Deb Milbrath, freelance artist, and she has some real good ones. Be sure to check her other cartoons out: GOP GUTS – Political Cartoon by Deb Milbrath, Freelance – 06/12/2012
And no, Obama can’t be the puck…
What about those few Republicans who are coming out of the Norquist closet?
I have to laugh at the look on that elephant’s face, it really does look like one of those guys who should be in a GOP Asshole Men of the Month Calendar. Can you imagine it? With Red Letter days for various legislative anniversaries that celebrate the GOP’s War on Women…including a handy pack of “period” stamps…little stickers that look like menstrual pads so that women can keep track of their periods, and since life begins at ovulation, a little fetus sticker to remind these women what their only reason for “living” should be….being an incubator for the PLUBs (Pro-Life-Until-Birth). Oh but wait, maybe those little stickers are a bit too offensive and “disruptive” for mixed company!
Now, this next cartoon is fantastic!
I love the way John Cole has drawn Mitt doing a Rodney Dangerfield thing with his collar…
Speaking of Mitt:
There should be a blade listed as LGBT Rights and Women’s reproductive health in that one!
As far as a comment on the economy…
The woman in that cartoon looks exactly how I feel…
Did you all hear about the Bacon Sundae over at Burger King?
One thing I don’t get is that there is so much outrage from the right-wing about all those “brown” immigrants picking tomatoes, yet WTF was that crap they call a “Congressional Hearing” yesterday when Jamie Dimon got the gratuitous ass kissing treatment.
And about that ass kissing!
Which reminds of a skit on Dave Chappelle:
White Collar Crime…”Law and Order” Very funny…check it out!
And, I have saved the best for last, this time it is a double dose of good stuff. First from Mike Luckovich: 6/15 Mike Luckovich cartoon: Cracking down | Mike Luckovich
And then finally this one:
Have a wonderful weekend, and hopefully I can post some pictures and thoughts as I tour our Nation’s Capital…Otherwise…this sister will be sticking a sock in it until June 27th…catch y’all later in a couple of weeks!
