    What do you think the odds are that Zack also drew a comic that criticized Obama for getting the Olympics, just in case the games were held in Chicago? There’s just no pleasing some people.

  1. Good one, Donny. Would that I had the time for covering all my bases that well.

    Is Barry O’Bama the president of Chicago, or of the entire United States? Are there no more pressing issues for the United States than getting the Olympics on US soil? And hasn’t the experience of bribery surrounding the Winter Olympics at Salt Lake City tainted the selection process?

    Rio must have bribed the judges better than Barry did. I mean, the hookers in Rio are much better looking than the skank ho’s in Chicago (or so I’ve been told).

  2. sorry to be the one to point out a TYPO error in a brilliant illustration

    it’s IOC not OIC 😦

    If I was a Lib that would be cause for dismissal of the whole cartoon message.

    I’m a HUGE fan – keep up the FANTASTIC work!

    The Olympic Committee is an international organization so this joke makes no sense.

    As I had made the case in a former cartoon posting, I am surprised that calls of racism have not already been made. Yet I would have enjoyed having the Olympics here in the states (again) yet, you would have thought a President with so much support and popularity throughout the world. Star power alone should have gotten the games to Chicago. Then the cost over runs, the greasing of politicians, big labor control of construction. I hardly believe it would have made money at all. Furthermore Michelle went even so far as to sacrifice herself for us:

    “In her speech in Copenhagen today, First Lady Michelle Obama said her trip to Denmark, along with the travel of her ‘dear friend” and “chit-chat buddy’ Oprah Winfrey, as well as tomorrow’s visit by President Obama, is a ‘sacrifice’ on behalf of the children of Chicago and the United States.”

    The IOC must hate us for our compassion. We just don’t deserve the Obama. Nope the moral depravity that is the IOC white rulers have truly shown their colors.

  3. Thanks a bunch Mr. Pinko– I’ve fixed that up as per your reminder– see cartoon. Where’s my proofreader when I need her? Come to think of it where’s my proofreader period?

    I did this drawing very early this morning before having to dash out for the day for a scheduled meet-up with friends… just goes to show you can’t be too hasty with these things.

  4. wootabega: I would never put trying to strong-arm an international organization past Obama. You don’t nearly do the man justice.

    Yeah, because the fact that he wanted a universal, government-run public option for health care reform for the United States surely suggests that he wants to take over foreign and international entities.

  5. wootabega: to be fair, once he decided he wanted to reform health care, Obama has swiftly and brutally gotten what he wants. He’s destroyed every obstacle in his path!

  6. Another great cartoon, Zack!

    Zack,

    PLEASE get that spell check feature before we see another Twitter-pated message from Tyrone Shoelaces.

  7. GeekNerd:

    Tyrone is an incredibly obvious blackface ‘character’ someone is putting on; I doubt spellcheck would deter Tyrone’s author from cooning it up.

    I do support spellcheck for the rest of us, though.

    Wow, it’s like a minstrel show in here. Great job!

    I’m sure people thought minstrel shows were fun, too. That doesn’t really make the shows acceptable though, does it?

  10. Donny: You clearly didn’t understand my comment. As said, I was obviously spoofing Tyrone’s cheap imitation of a black guy. Are you sure you’re up to this site? It’s about humor, and freedom; 99% of it pokes fun at a group of people (the Lanes) who happen to be white, but we’re not afraid to lampoon other races as well; are not, in other words, self-censored by the neurotic guilt-complex known as Political Correctness. If you feel uncomfortable about a blog where skin-color is irrelevant, no race is patronizingly granted Special Treatment, and we don’t spend our time looking under the bed for hidden racists, you should try the Mainstream Media, where a spineless Fear of Offending Others rules supreme.

    This is an overwhelmingly non-racist country– get used to it. For example back in the 1990s, Republican voters’ top presidential candidate of choice according to all polling was Colin Powell. But I admit that without their [your] eternal race-baiting, the Left would be dead. Your side desperately needs blacks to feel discriminated against so that they’ll continue electing Democrats to “save” them. How very patronizing and condescending the whole spectacle is.

    Feel free to point out where I singled you out as the only participant in the minstrel show, Zack. Your blackface act is just as inexcusable as Tyrone’s.

    I like how you claim to be colorblind, but then immediately bring up Powell because of his race. Just because most of the country is not racist doesn’t mean that you aren’t, Zack.

    I also like how you imply that African-Americans are apparently too ignorant to for themselves if they are being discriminated against. Apparently you think African-Americans are generally incapable of independent thought and just blindly follow what the Democrats tell them. African-Americans couldn’t possibly have reached the conclusion that they are being discriminated against based on their own life experiences, right? They must have had these beliefs planted into their minds by the Dems, right Zack? Telling African-Americans that the only reason they feel discriminated against is because the Dems have tricked them seems pretty patronizing and condescending to me.

  11. “They must have had these beliefs planted into their minds by the Dems, right Zack?”

    When the left virtually owns the entire mainstream media and also Academia from K through 12 plus college, it is all too easy to understand why so many– of every race, not just blacks– are misled into buying the poisonous goods of leftist thought. It happened throughout the 20th century; why should ours be any different? An apt analog would be the election of Obama, in which a patently underexperienced politician replete with strong terrorist connections (Ayers) and a buffoonish racist for a mentor (Wright), nevertheless fooled the voters (of all colors) into buying into him due to the willing volunteerism of a smitten mainstream media– which acted as his de facto PR firm (the largest and most well-funded in history).

  12. I absolutely love the LIBERAL MEDIA LIBERAL SCHOOLS LIBERALS EVERYWHERE critique, because it is a brilliant way to just ignore the vast majority of public and private discourse in the country without providing any substantive reason for doing so.

    It’s an isolating and affirmational mindset that allows people to buy into insane birth-certificate-william-ayers-secret-muslim-death-panel-death camps, because if all of society is “in the bag” for your evil enemy, a lack of genuine evidence for something is in itself proof that it must be getting covered up!

    It also conveniently allows you to support anyone on ‘your side’ because anything that comes out about them that is unappealing is clearly the work of a vast conspiracy.

    People of all stripes like to pull this stuff, don’t get me wrong, but the LIBERAL MEDIA BIAS meme is so overpowering and pervasive that it’s something else entirely. It’s even good for pushing everything rightward, since so many media outlets are afraid of being called liberal and so tailor their coverage to avoid such labels.

    I’m not sure who started this whole idea, but they’re an evil genius. It’s a fantasyland, but so many people genuinely believe in it.

    Liberals love to try dispel the liberal media bias. Even to go so far as to call it the conservative main stream media, which as far as I could tell is one network… Just one. Then bitch and complain about that ONE network, as if they have all that control.

    Obama pushes healthcare: “Waaahhh, Obama’s on TV addressing important issues. He is a bad president.”

    Obama takes a break from going on TV to promote healthcare: “Waaahhhh, Obama is not on TV addressing important issues. He is a bad president.”

    Obama multitasks: “Waaahhhh, no one can possibly do more than one thing at a time. He is a bad president.”

    The Olympics should have demanded no more than 15 minutes of his time. Waaaaahhhh, leave him alone! O’ team was sacrificing for us! I’m sure the man can multitask. Yet opinion on Obama is a little bit more important since, well he is the President. His stuff does effect us, or will. I live in California, we elected someone who we thought was going to be a fiscally conservative governor. Unfortunately that is NOT what we got, and we are paying dearly for it, or will.

    So, the president should be bringing his message about important policies to the people and the media should be covering the president? That’s not what you guys were saying a few comics ago. Which brings us back to:

    Obama pushes healthcare: “Waaahhh, Obama’s on TV addressing important issues. He is a bad president.”

    Obama takes a break from going on TV to promote healthcare: “Waaahhhh, Obama is not on TV addressing important issues. He is a bad president.”

    Isn’t that interesting; Donny finds an unrepentant, murdering domestic terrorist who said, “I really think we didn’t do enough” a figure of amusement. Perhaps he also finds Che a hilarous figure too?

    What the heck does FRHTHJJ mean? If you’re going to make a point of using acronyms in your compelling one line insult posts, please explain for those of us who don’t use that acronymn. Of course, if it was just an example of your perception of the inarticulate rage of conservatives, it was a waste of bandwidth.

  14. Please provide details of the individuals murdered by Bill Ayers. Surely with the dismay people hold for the lazy liberal media and hateful leftist hatemongers and their careless use of hateful language, you are not throwing the term “murderer” around lightly! Who did he murder?

    Sure; Ayers was just a “guy in the neighborhood”. One of the bombs that went off precitously killed Diana Oughton, and two other weatherground cell members. Ayers was the bomb designer. He ploted to kill (I guess if he didn’t actually.

    He also planned to kill hundreds of servicemen and their girlfriends at Fort Dix by nail bombs. In other remarks he advocating killing all the rich people and killing one’s parents.

    And this guy is just laughable to some of you folks. That’s repellant.

    But if you baulk at the word “murderer”, I could go back to using “unrepentant domestic terrorist and murder plotter”. I could even add that he’s “cruel and conscienceless” which is the way that Donna Ron who dated William Ayers describes him in this article. (Warning-Some graphic language)

    Very different time MethodistMin. Hating the military was all the rage back then. Peace, love and supporting Ho Chi Minh was the thing to do. Killing a few soldiers for a war those silly kids at the weather underground was just typical left wing shenanigans. And if it wasn’t for those meddling kids at the FBI they would have gotten away with it too!

    Now do I believe that Obama is going to throw conservatives into re-education camps? No, no more than I believed that liberals were going to be sent to Guantanamo and water boarded, because of the Patriot Act. Which, if I’m not mistaken has not been overturned as of yet….. Hmmmmm.

    “I fail to see how you guys have any room to talk considering you conservatives put Hussein in power back in the 80’s.”

    Hussein was in power by no help from us. He may have been “aided” by our government to balance out Iran. Yet his rise to power was done pretty much on his own by 1979. Yet I guess what we should have done is allowed Hussein to be defeated (since we knew what was to happen 15 years, or rather Liberals did right?). What power vacuum the defeat of Iraq would have created means little to liberals.

    So what was the liberal plan?
