WTF Political Cartoons

5 notes

So, after some deliberation, I decided to stop running this blog.

I’ve said my bit. most of my best work is in the early days of the blog when I could still muster up fucks to give, still found it in me to be really offended by comics, and didn’t just fall to sacatic “yeah, because you know…” humor and swearing. I haven’t had the time to really go through the Cagle site recently, and nor the Political Cartoon tag on Tumblr. I’d say I’d pass the torch on, but the relay has already passed me. A Good Cartoon and SECOTM are better, more active and more consistent blogs these days anyway. This was a fun thing to do for a while, but it was a chore for a while, and an ignored side project for the last month.

I might still update once in a blue moon if I suddenly get inspired to do so, but mostly, I’m just gonna call it quits and consentrate on my personal blog and few fan blogs.

For the Left, Carol Hanisch’s mantra “the personal is political” still holds true, as seen in movements for racial, gender and orientation equality. Their politics are an extension of their identity, their struggle for rights and recognition deeply personal.
Cartoonist Henry Payne observes that many of the Right’s concerns on the other hand are more externalized — identity is tied up in consumption, paranoia and property. One may add such abstract concepts as “freedom” and “are troops” as further aggregates of this identity; you could easily imagine a yellow ribbon or American flag sticker in the window of this car.
It’s clear then who the “values voters” truly are. A good cartoon.

Anonymous asked: What exactly are you calling WTF about Chuck Asay's "revisited" version of Charles Atlas?

I was just reblogging the “Chuch Asay Rorchach Test” post.
