the funniest part of course is that he did the cartoon, put the poster of trump with 'open season', put the witches and gave them shotguns, and then thought about his audience for a second, and wrote TRUMP HUNT in big letters, just in case

political cartoons are maybe the single worst medium with regard to "show don't tell." the overwhelming majority, whatever their politics, would be massively improved by an editor nixing some number of written labels. also a high ratio of speech balloons contorting into overworded messes to explain the background and then convey the joke, which to other humorists is usually a sign that the joke isn't going to work.

Occasionally I wonder, when the WP comes up, whether Jeff Bezos is not in fact a more malign or potentially more malign figure than Trump, taking a broad view. But I guess that isn't the conversation Ben Garrison is interested in having.

I'm sort of grimly fascinated by Ben Garrison. How does he claim to be a "rogue cartoonist" when one of his defining features is completely unquestioning loyalty to the president of the USA? What's he going to do when the Trump project inevitably disintegrates? Is there a point where he would be disillusioned? What then?

Camaraderie at Arms Length, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 20:41 (one year ago) Permalink

He's also written a long article entitled "Advice for Aspiring Cartoonists" in case anyone wants to follow in his footsteps.

Camaraderie at Arms Length, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 20:45 (one year ago) Permalink

when the Trump project inevitably disintegrates it will be because of the sinister machinations of the shadowy elite made up of the Republican establishment the Deep State and the Rothschilds

soref, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 20:46 (one year ago) Permalink

the media has its golden goose so the "project" (whatever that is) disintegrating not likely to happen. he could be impeached and exiled from the country and we will still hear about every single dumb thing he tweets for the rest of his and our livee.

impeachment or resignation or criminal charges of some sort is the disintegration I'm talking about, sorry if you would like that phrased differently.

"How does he claim to be a "rogue cartoonist" when one of his defining features is completely unquestioning loyalty to the president of the USA?"

this is trump's base generally; hence the focus on the evil media and derp state machinations to explain why having trump in charge isn't magically fulfilling all their dreams and changing the entire system.

Trump had the conspiracy theorist types in his pocket from the get-go; had assumed that if he were ever to win he'd lose them instantly, like they'd have to think "welp, he's a lizard person/bilderberg stooge/whatever now". But the combative nature of his presidency, the fact that it always looks just about to fall apart, has made it so you can now maintain wake up sheeple cred while repping for the most powerful man in the United States.

looks more like Loretta imo

It's relevant because America's relationship with Trump is much like Leroy and Loretta's marriage. Trump is drunk again at a party and dancing with a floozy while wearing a lampshade. Loretta is spending Leroy's payceck at the department store again.

I'm not sure which one is which here, but it makes sense if you think about it.

May is basically Damien Hirst in disguise?

calzino, Thursday, 21 March 2019 16:14 (two months ago) Permalink

The blurb with it, um, explains? Not sure that's the word.

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May claims she’s on the side of the public when it comes to Brexit, but other than her tennis match with Parliament, nothing ever seems to happen.

Her unacceptable ‘deal’ to leave the EU continues to be rejected. Why can’t Britain just leave with no deal? The globalists claim it would be economically disastrous. Maybe, for them.

The pro-Brexit Nigel Farage is disgusted that May rules out leaving the EU without a deal. He called the Prime Minister’s performance “appalling and pathetic.”

It has been nearly three years since Brexit was passed by British citizens, but little progress has been made on actually exiting. British citizens have for too long experienced taxation without representation. They have become slaves to the dictates of gray bureaucrats in the globalist de facto capitol, Brussels. Ignoring the millions of voters who want Brexit is courting danger—maybe even a revolution.

Think France.

It’s time for Britain to ‘walk away’ from the EU. Instead, they’re walking into another variation of the EU cage by means of trickery and delay tactics.

It’s time for May to resign.

The UK is a lion because it's a constitutional monarchy and lions rule the jungle, you see. Faceless, globalist EU scum have caged it, you see, and Nigel Farage is the only British politician who understands its plight, you see, but he's prevented from unleashing the noble lion by Theresa May, you see, who is in fact a treacherous illusionist and lion tamer, in league with the, er, enemies of the natural order of things, you see, and that's why she refuses to open the lock, even though it's on her side, and I'm sure you'll agree that it's all quite tragic.
