The Best Crack-Smoking Mayor

1558-20140206-BestCrackMayor

“I am the best mayor this city has ever had.” When I read this quote from the crack-smoking, mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, I knew I had to revisit this drawing I did a while back with some new lettering.

Christie and the Bridge

1538-20140110-CHristiesBridge

If you haven’t been following the Chris Christie, George Washington Bridge shutdown fiasco I’ll give a quick recap. People within the Christie administration shutdown multiple lanes on the George Washington Bridge (AKA the busiest bridge in America) causing a week-long traffic jam in what appears to be an act of political retribution after a mayor refused to endorse Christie for reelection.

Scalia and the Devil

1474-20131014-Scalia&TheDevil

In a recent interview with New York Magazine, Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia, talked about his belief in the devil as an actual person. I find it disconcerting that someone we trust to make decisions for us as a nation believes in the devil.

In the Gospels, the Devil is doing all sorts of things. He’s making pigs run off cliffs, he’s possessing people and whatnot. And that doesn’t happen very much anymore.

Braveheart Republicans

1472-20131010-Braveheart-Gingrey

Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) said that Republicans should have a Braveheart Moment in regards to the government shutdown and the impending debt ceiling that will come as a result of the House Republicans holding the budget hostage over healthcare. Woo, that was a mouth-full. But I get it, bringing the government to a screeching halt in an attempt to stop people from getting healthcare is similar to fighting and dying for Scotland’s freedom from a treacherous, murdering and raping King. Anyway, I drew Rep. Phil Gingrey as Wallace from Braveheart… wait, maybe he just meant “We’re as crazy as Mel Gibson!”
