Cartoon Saturday


Well, both of the major parties have now concluded their conventions, and those who think Trump is a boorish and unqualified charlatan and those who think Hillary Clinton is a lying traitor have had their preconceived notions validated and are ready to move on to the next three months of screaming past each other. In other news ...

A 14 year-old girl in India has died after being raped for the second time by the same man, who was on bail awaiting trial for the first assault; the $13 billion USS Gerald Ford, the Navy's newest aircraft carrier, has failed critical operational tests and will not be ready to join the fleet in September of this year as scheduled; an 86 year-old priest was murdered in France by two men identified by the so-called "Islamic State," or "daesh," as it's "soldiers;" FBI Director James Comey predicts that the crushing of the so-called "Islamic State" in Syria and Iraq will produce a "terrorist diaspora...like we've never seen before;" and in Morocco, a seven year-old girl visiting a zoo in Rabat was killed when she was struck by a rock thrown by ... an elephant.

This week's set of cartoons has no unifying theme* ... just a selection randomly chosen from my collection.

I think this one is A-OK ...


Something to consider if I ever get around to writing my book ...


I'm not sure I would admit that ...


If you find out where this is, let me know ...


We've had the GOP and the Democrats, why not these guys? ...


I don't think I'd have waited quite this long ...


True dat ...


He must have one of those Cadillac health plans everybody talks about ...


Looks like business is ... uh ... booming ...


The average single-issue voter ...


And that's your final cartoon fix for the month. You know you needed it.

It's been a beastly hot week here in NoVa, and it's not cooling off much over the weekend. I'd like to be able to work in the yard, but I think the salt in the sweat pouring off me would kill the grass. I guess I'll do inside chores, instead. It's about time once again to back up a dumpster to my study window and start purging.

Have a good day and a great weekend. See you tomorrow for Poetry Sunday ... more thoughts then.

* Sort of like the platforms of the GOP and the Democrats.

I hope this loaner thing doesn't catch on. And that's what you get when you combine AA, AAA, and AARP together.

I took me a few seconds to decipher the AA AAA AARP.

The weather is very nice here today. Should be heading your way.

There are worse things to download beside a Paris Hilton song.
