I’ve yet to find anything I can say that a cartoonist isn’t able to say better. With fewer words and usually with humor.
There are always some cartoons that are filled with vitriol, liked if it’s against the other side and not so much if it’s against your team. But most usually ratchet it back a bit when it comes to Christmas. The nasty is watered down a tad in favor of funny and the old “Peace on Earth – Good Will Towards Men” thing.
Some cartoonists like to make fun of the idiocy of PC in 2016.
In case we think that’s just a cartoon being funny remember that one idiot school principle canceled the annual children’s play – A Christmas Carol – because some idiot parents were offended by Tiny Tim saying “God Bless Us Everyone.” What kind of a person is offended by someone saying “God Bless All Of Us”?
That’s just sad isn’t it? But I don’t “do” Facebook so maybe that’s just par for the course. And I really don’t like to think my grandchildren are a part of a Mark Zuckerberg world.
Can’t imagine the cartoon above in the “olden days” that are my childhood memories but it will be a part of memories of their childhood for the kids today. And since I love shopping at Amazon I will be happy to have my stuff delivered by drone.
Okay, I can’t help myself, here a Christmas cartoon that is political. And it’s a doozy! Love that Glenn McCoy!
Below is another cartoon that is a sign of the times.
Oh-oh, here’s another cartoon with a political theme. Just cant’ help myself. (Don’t try very hard either.)
Cartoons also show us the dark side of the world as seen by Nate Beeler:
And Rick McKee:
Sadly I could post a lot more cartoons that show all too clearly that we do not, in many parts of the world, have Peace on Earth and Good Will Towards Men. I don’t like to dwell on this aspect but I would be less than honest if I didn’t show it.
And around the world, including our own country many people will heed the title of the cartoon below.
Should we pity the poor Democrats and their determination to win by hook or by crook, by recount or by trying to intimidate the electors enough to slide the slimy Clintons back into the White House? Santa did not oblige them with their Christmas wish.
I saved the best for last:
Dave Granlund is not one of my favorite cartoonists. In fact I don’t like most of his cartoons. However the cartoon below is my favorite cartoon of all I’ve seen so far this year.
