Presenting the Nation's Best Political Cartoon Ever!

Well, this changes everything. Let's do the numbers, after the jump.


We found this great new political cartoon -- "the second of what the authors hope to make into a series of political cartoons" -- on HumanEvents.com, a social networking site for dementia patients.

It's called THEM ARK'S BROTHERS: GOPPO & DEMMO, itself a bracing kick in the nuts to an industry stuck in the rut of short, comprehensible cartoon names.

The single panel itself is a magically insane combination of Kelly and Latawnya the Naughty Horse. Where else can you find:

* Anthropomorphic furry versions of the Democrat and Republican mascots who wear strange FRANKIE SAYS t-shirts, and nothing else

* A donkey that's either grotesquely oversized, or an elephant that's a creepily deformed dwarf

* A brontosaurus disguised as a giraffe (?)

* Right-wingers who read a newspaper that's actually named for the new Michael Moore movie

* A bayonette-armed bird in a World War II infantry helmet who is apparently unaware that the Fi in Semper Fi means the same thing as the Fidel in Fidel Castro -- Fidelis, or "faithful" in Latin

* The charming addition of a French-esque accent over the E in El Che's name, because ... uhm, just because, dammit!

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
