Because this is Super Tuesday and I am sure I will be writing on the results later tonight, I will be short and sweet this morning. I want to share a cartoon I found on The McCarville Report Online yesterday. It may seem a bit over the top and even more than a little sarcastic, but it illustrates the absurdity of the priorities of President Obama perfectly. A picture truly is worth a thousand words.
Well, let’s see what we have this week in the way of cartoons to help us all keep our sense of humor in this time of political turmoil. The main topics this week seem to be the nuclear summit President Obama convened in Washington and of course, April 15, better known as Tax Day.

Oklahoma Militia – Bruce Plante

It’s time once again for another weekly edition of Friday Funnies. For your enjoyment, here are the editorial and political cartoons I found particularly amusing this week, with one excption. I felt Bruce Plante’s tribute to Wilma Mankiller, the first woman to sit as Principle Chief of the Cherokke Tribe to be espcially fitting and honorable.

Okay, it’s time for this week’s Friday Funnies (thanks to Dominique for the name suggestion). I am going to try to make this a weekly feature and will try to showcase a variety of artists. For the time being, we will stick to Chip Bok and Bob Gorrell, who were featured in the first edition of this feature, and add Mike Luckovich and Gary Markstein. Predictably, most of the cartoons are still going to be about the ongoing debate over health care reform, but there other topics out there, as is evidenced by some of the ones I have included in this week’s installment.
I hope all of us can take a few minutes to look at these cartoons and have a few laughs. Goodness → Read More
A lot of serious topics have been discussed on Political Realities during the course of it’s existence. The Presidential elections, the economy, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and now the debate over health care reform. Maybe no one else gets to feeling this way, but I wonder sometimes if we do not need to take a step back and chill out.
So, I have decided to post a few of the editorial cartoons that I have found amusing in the last few days. Most of them may be conservative in nature, but I may include some liberal artists as well. Let me know what you think and who knows, we may start a weekly feature.
For starters, here are two each from Bob Gorrell → Read More
