    Should have just put his hand over her mouth and laughed. GOP would have approved.
    I assume LWV stands for League of Womenís Voters. Not an ideal setting for such chauvinism.

    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    That one is great but it's an entire series. This is one cartoon. The brevity is what I love.

    I believe they do. I have a book of pol/op-ed cartoons from 95, I believe. It's amazing how relevant those cartoons still are today. If you printed half that book today, you'd get the same reactions. Not even joking around.

    Edit: it skewers everything, btw.

    There was one in the book I have, and it's a young kid, maybe about 5ish....at a rally for illegal immigrants, with a banner saying "Support Our Illegal Immigrants." And the kid is asking, "doesn't 'illegal' mean 'against the law?'"


    The book also rails against the gun laws at the time, health care issues, etc. It's amazing.

    Itís not amazing. Itís pathetic and sad.

    Pathetic that we still have people who carry water for the politicians who wonít let us evolve beyond that generations-old thinking.

    We still have all of these same problems 30+ years later? Pathetic indeed.

    It's amazing in the true sense of the word. 23 years have passed, and all the cartoons still hold some sort of truth to them, if not all the truth. Look at the forest, not the tree.

    No. It's sometimes amazing in the good way, too, b/c we've improved in some areas. Do I have to repeat I just said?

    Holy sh*t, that didn't turn into a three-page lover's spat between the two of you?

    I disagree with that characterization, and I think dx would, too.

    You can even do this with some political cartoons going back to the Civil War era. Really is a solid example of ďthe more things change, the more they stay the sameĒ... Political cartoons do offer excellent snapshots for a moment in time though.
