Same-sex marriage cartoon roundup (updated)
And a few other cartoons
Now that Bush has made his brilliant declaration about sinners and the "need" for further defining marriage as between a man and a woman, blah blah blah, cartoonists everywhere are drawing on the issue. (Updated to include a few cartoons on the new gay bishop)
Cartoons about hypocrisy: Cartoons that point out that heterosexual marriage is hardly the pristine institution that so many right-wingers extol it as from Stuart Carlson, Jimmy Margulies, Mike Smith, Signe Wilkinson, Ward Sutton, and Tom Toles. And cartoons about the Vatican's pronouncements on same-sex marriage from Ann Telnaes and Rob Rogers.
Cartoons disgusted by Bush's anti-gay comments: Tony Auth, Dan Wasserman, and Lalo Alcaraz. Signe Wilkinson doesn't comment specifically on his comments, but she puts two and two together about Bush's marriage promotion initiative...
Cartoons that simply celebrate gay marriage: These aren't as common. I found one from Kirk Anderson.
Cartoons about Bush's secret gay marriage: From who else but Ted Rall?
Cartoons that are pleased by Bush's "firm" anti-same-sex-marriage stance: Yes, here's one from Chuck Asay. Mr. Asay also makes that cute "save the children from those evil gays" argument, which at best makes the ridiculous argument that gay and bisexual people are inherently bad parents, and at worst calls up the homophobic lie that gay men are child molesters.
Other anti-gay cartoons: Dick Wright makes that stupid "gays are trying to divide the church" argument.
Cartoons that don't seem to take a stance or whose stance I can't puzzle out:
I'm not sure what to say about this Oliphant cartoon, except to wonder if Mr. Oliphant really thinks most gay men look/act like that. I have the nagging feeling that the man on the far left in this Chip Bok cartoon is supposed to be someone specific (why else the Yale shirt?) but I don't know who. Dick Locher notes that many people are speaking out against same-sex marriage, but I don't know if he's one of them or not. Same goes for Joe Heller.
Cartoons not about same-sex marriage: Ted Rall has a different take than most (and one which I agree with) on the terror futures market. Joel Pett also has a great cartoon. Ruben Bolling presents a new board game. Keith Knight wonders how long it'll be before America doesn't need affirmative action any more. And here's a random cartoon about Ann Coulter from Doug Marlette, and a great cartoon from Lloyd Dangle (it's not brand-new, but it rocks anyway).
