Cartoon Saturday

Kim Jong-Il, North Korea's "Dear Leader," has announced that the official title of his son and designated successor, Kim Jong-Un, is "Brilliant Comrade;" both candidates are claiming victory in the Iranian elections; Chastity Bono, once the cute daughter of Sonny and Cher, has announced she is changing her gender and will henceforth be known as "Chaz;" an 88-year-old white supremacist murdered a security guard at Washington's Holocaust Memorial Museum before being shot by other guards; and a ferocious battle between the Mexican Army and a gang of drug thugs in downtown Acapulco's tourist hotel zone left 18 people dead and many injured.

Don't worry, Cartoon Saturday is here to help give you your weekly anti-reality injection.

For someone whose name is synonymous with military disaster, General George Armstrong Custer still manages to inspire cartoons, whether tied to the economy ...

Or to, well, the economy ...

Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, Kim Jong-il, Rush Limbaugh, and Nancy Pelosi were not available this week, so we have two cartoons featuring other clowns for you ...

And ...

Sometimes there's a reason for a double standard ...

And sometimes there's just no excuse ...

For those of you who follow ice hockey, one bit of good news this week was that my hometown Pittsburgh Penguins have won hockey's Stanley Cup by defeating the Detroit Red Wings 2-1. Go Pens!!

It looks as though we'll have yet another in our ongoing series of rainy weekends here in Northern Virginia. I've given up on getting a tan this year...I think I'll just go ahead and rust.

Sigh.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

I always enjoy the momentary break from reality in Bilbo's Cartoon Saturday.
