The Memory Hole

How many Republicans running for office this year do you think are boasting that they got rid of abortion?

I would guess damn few.

Very damn few, because the little treasonous bastards know that an overwhelming majority of Americans prefer having abortion as a medical option as they're not stupid. They know that things can and often do go horribly wrong during a pregnancy.

That's why the GOP is making this election all about the border in hope their supporters will conveniently forget that their daughters and grand-daughters lives are literally on the line.

President Joe Biden certainly can't lower gas prices by pulling some mystical lever that lies concealed within the nooks of the Resolute Desk but House Republicans can sure make a mess of the immigrant problem by just doing nothing, and blaming it on Joe. A tactic they've perfected into an art.


I have a Facebook page for Raging Pencils which currently has over 7500 followers. Each Monday, for the past several years, I have scouted the inter-tubes for the best editorial cartoons from the previous week so that I might share them with the peeps, to provide a broad spectrum of criticism by professional and semi-well-paid editorial cartoonists while I draw Trump pissing himself and looking stupid.

Today I had a visitor comment that all of the cartoons I posted were "fucking depressing". And she was correct.

Editorial cartoons used to be simpler affairs. Topics were mostly about greed and government corruption. But sometimes it was about the looming threat of nuclear devastation. And right about 1939 the tone shifted to the threat of fascism, a subject so serious that 50 million people died as a result.

Editorial cartoons today are not amusing, at all, as the subject matter often leans hard into the existential threat of, you guessed it, fascism again. It's rather difficult to put a sugar coating on that stuff.

So if you'd like to have more editorial cartoons that deal with zoning laws or too few pepperonis on the school lunch pizza then try and vote for the good guys next time. You know who they are. They have the big D after their names on the ballot. (Your mileage may vary.)
