New Cartoon! Sodomy Ruling Funnies
Plus: other people's cartoons on sodomy, Strom, and so on
This one is, of course, about my own difficulty in processing good news.
Other people's sodomy ruling cartoons...
On the pro-ruling side: Kirk Anderson eschews the usual "two guys with mustachessitting in bed smoking" cartoon for an oddly blurry cartoon actually depicting two guys happily going at it in bed (well, going at it in a PG kind of way). Rob Rogers explores a possible downside to gay parenting (for the parents, not society)... Matt Davies looks at the sanctity of marriage. R.J. Matson watches Scalia explode. And while most cartoonists used two gay men in their cartoons about the ruling (I'm sort of guilty, but my first cartoon about the laws showed women, so there), Joel Pett shows two well-known women.
By the way, don't take Bush's relative silence on the Supreme Court decision for agreement. Not only is Scalia Bush's favorite justice, but when Bush was governor and someone asked him about the law, he promised he would fight attempts to repeal it because "it's a symbolic gesture of traditional values." And he's really big on the whole "marriage is between a man and a woman only" thing, he just doesn't know if we "need" the amendment YET (which presumes it is "needed" at some point in the future?).
Other people's dead Strom Thurmond cartoons
Luckily, not all cartoons about the late segregationist senator look like this one. Ward Sutton imagines Strom pinching women in the afterlife. Ann Telnaes writes a little epitaph. Mike Luckovich and Doug Marlette do the "what if the guy at the gate or God himself is black" thing? Farai Chideya isn't a cartoonist, but wonders, "Do Segregationists Have a Heaven?"
Other people's cartoons not on sodomy or Strom
Lalo Alcaraz simplifies the 2004 presidential ballot. Ann Telnaes gives us the fourth of July, Bush-style. Ruben Bolling does a cartoon not at all related to politics, but brilliant anyway. Aaron McGruder gives his take on ending racial profiling, Bush-style. Scott Bateman on the Footnote Administration. And David Rees has a whole new batch of Get Your War On, this time it's knock-knock jokes.
