    There’s nothing much to say, this toon is one of the worst I’ve seen yet. There is no truth or meaning here, unless you are among the paranoid few. Total Toilet Paper Party.

    Great 4th of July Toon, Lester. Highlights the theme of your work perfectly: Nobody’s-bringing-the-people-together-without-a-shite-load-of-negativity-and-violence.

    Thanks for your vote.

    An interesting cartoon. Gail Collins of the New York Times writes (without a link) about a poll that rates Obama as the worst president. Ever. She goes on to say that the newest polls of historians have moved Harding up on the list. (The poll she didn’t link was the Quinnipiac University Poll.)


    When I was in school, Harding and Grant, both of whom either broke laws or allowed their subordinates to break laws with impunity, were considered the worst presidents in my history books. Then they took a poll of historians, and Buchanan came out worst by a large margin. Buchanan upheld the law that allowed slavery, which those polled considered far worse than breaking the laws against accepting bribes and pocketing public funds. In those polls, Harding was still bad, but not as bad as Buchanan. Now that politicians are expected to accept as much (in ‘contributions’) as possible to vote as their contributors want (which is now not just legal, but considered an important part of the job), historians think that Harding did absolutely nothing wrong, was ahead of his time, and should be ranked among the better presidents. So Ms Collins (who gleefully accepted the polls ranking Buchanan as worst president) is using the new poll about Harding (she preferred the older polls) to support her reluctance to accept the ranking of Obama as worst president.


    Like many of us who remember keeping dinosaurs for pets before the liberals passed laws against it, I prefer my school books to modern polls. Which puts me in bed with the Nobel Laureate Kenneth Arrow who got his prize for proving that ALL ranking by polls is fatally flawed. Added to which, the day after one Quinnipiac University Poll voted Obama the worst president, another Quinnipiac University Poll said that getting into Iraq was terrible and getting out of Iraq was GREAT. (Prof. Arrow’s proof was theoretical, so it’s nice to see some empirical results that clearly validate his result.)

    As opposed to the libs we see trolling on this ’toon, who just hide behind their computers and preach hate and violence.

    I guess the other onlookers are all of the Reps and Senators who have established a terrific record of doing nothing other than running their re-election campaigns.

    The bystanders behind Obama are Republicans impatiently waiting to take their turn beating her up.

    Oh come on, he would be turning it into a selfie! But then after seeing it on TV he would get real mad, roll up his sleeves and vow to get to the bottom of it. How was he to know? The Republicans will not let him do anything.
    And Don’t forget we have to be “Believers to be Leaders” in this world. Obama has no use for our military, they are no good in fighting Gorbull warming. And look over there.. a women has to pay out of pocket for abortion pills. Why Obama can not be bothered while this other war, the war on women is going on.. and look over there..

    Love the multi color tie! Is that because he has evolved? The rating show, and he has followed?
    Must keep up with what is important..to your loony liberal voting base. Forget the number of partition rate and oil production, must pander to the distortion, he has the Census department for those other numbers. After a we he and the others can be “unexpectedly” shocked when the number have been “revised down”

    na, they have to back and recharge their Obamaphone, And wait to see the responses on their pages to even get involved. It is the 1st of the month and the line for the Obama EPT card gets long if you wait around with these non stories.
