"Sorry, Wrong Nobel!"

Saturday, October 31, 2009 - I did this cartoon about a week and a half ago, and posted it to my website and a couple of other places at that time. When President Obama was originally awarded his "Nobel Prize for Nothing", I was as surprised and mystified as everyone else (Obama included). One can only assume that the Norwegian lefties on the committee awarded him the Prize simply for "not being George Bush", as many have said. That would certainly explain the Nobel Peace Prizes awarded during Bush's presidency to Jimmy Carter and, later, to Al Gore, Jr. (over the much more deserving, and now deceased, Irina Sendlerowa of Poland). When the Heene family "balloon boy" hoax happened, I thought it provided a perfect analogy to illustrate the foolishness of the award, which serves only to devalue the Nobel Peace Prize itself. - Jerry Breen

Whose Money, Ed?!!

Saturday, October 31, 2009 - This is a cartoon I posted on my website and elsewhere over a month ago. I saw a TV ad promoting the "new, improved" General Motors, under its new management team headed by Ed Whitacre. Ed was proudly displaying one of their new post-government-bailout vehicles, saying it was proof that they were "putting our money where our mouth is!" This after his incompetently-run dinosaur of a corporation had to be bailed out by $50 billion dollars in federal funds! (The noive o' dat guy!) - Jerry Breen

Kim Jong Il in "White Heat 2"!

Saturday, June 20, 2009 - As scary as he is crazy, North Korea's psycho dictator is planning big fireworks for July 4th. Even though his country is the poorest nation in the world and his people are starving (human arms and legs are not an uncommon sight in North Korean meat markets), he has devoted his country's resources to the development of intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons for many years. According to Japanese and U.S. intelligence agencies, he's expected to launch a long-range missile toward Hawaii on or about July 4th. Obviously, we would be forced to respond. Since Kim recently renounced the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War, that war has actually officially resumed. So the events of the coming weeks should be a surprise to nobody. If they do surprise you, then you haven't been paying attention to the news. - Jerry Breen

Joe Biden cartoon "Call Me Irrepressible!"

Tuesday, May 26, 2009 - Here's a new cartoon featuring our new Veep, the irrepressible Joe Biden. (I'm sure there are times when his boss President Obama would like to repress him, but - alas - it's just not possible.) Remember when he faulted Bush's handling of last year's stock market crash, saying that when the stock market crashed in 1929 FDR "went right on TV" and explained what he was doing? Only two things wrong with that - FDR wasn't President until 4 years later, and there was no TV at the time, only radio. (FDR's first TV appearance was at the opening of the New York World's Fair in 1939, and even then more people saw him in person than on TV, since there were only a few hundred TV sets in the country at the time.) - Jerry Breen

Obama's new White House dog

Saturday, May 9, 2009 - Here's another "new" cartoon, featuring Obama's new "dog" (it bears a suspicious resemblance to the "stimulus package"). I'll have a new
Biden cartoon shortly. Thanks, Jerry Breen

Obama in "Plane Crazy"

Saturday, May 9, 2009 - This was inspired by the ill-advised decision of an idiot on the White House staff to take pictures of Air Force One buzzing the Statue of Liberty and downtown Manhattan - without notifying anyone! Naturally, it caused widespread panic. (Gee... d'ya think?!) I actually drew this one (like the "White House Dog" cartoon) over a week ago, but didn't get a chance to color it in until now.
I'll try to be more up-to-date next time around. - Jerry Breen

Obama Sells Snake Oil !

April 2, 2009 - British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and President Barack Obama are trying to sell the other leaders at the G-20 World Summit on the idea of government spending "stimulus" packages to boost all the economies simultaneously. Others, led by German Prime Minister Angela Merkel, dispute the value of the "stimulus" tactic. (Although, oddly, Merkel has committed Germany to spending $70 billion to spur its economy, while Brown has so far only committed to spending $28 billion as a stimulus!) ?!? Go figure. - Jerry Breen
