Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

Borgman has won every major award in his field, including the 1991 Pulitzer Prize, the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year in 1993, and most recently, the Adamson Award in 2005 as International Cartoonist of the Year.

One time I saw Richard Nixon and Ralph Branca sitting together in George Steinbrenner's box seats at Yankee Stadium. Now there's a one act play waiting to be written! Same with these three guys.

Shouldn't that be Pope-Mel-Kramer? I mean, if it has to be chronological order.

Hey--Borg, the Pope HAS NOT apologized because the guy is kind of hemmed in by, you know, honesty. If sorry doesn't need to be said, one shouldn't say it. Period! He clarified for the lame brains who needed it, but never apologized, because he didn't speak any "Hate Speech" the whole statement, Borg!

(Interestingly, Michael Irvin gets a free don't have him on your couch...but eight days ago he said that Tony Romo's great, great, great grandmother must have "gone into the 'hood" and "hooked up" with an African American because his moves are simply too athletic...) Where's the media firestorm? Jim, you are so talented, but you simply don't discern bought the everything pop culture (media being a big part of this culture) has sold.

Man, you're not even remotely familiar with the cartoons if you think Borgman buys what the media sells.

These craggy, goofy faces are terrific. I sometimes find it rather dull to have to draw the doughy, bland Everyman mug that is needed so often; specifics can interfere with
generalities. Does anyone else share this frustration?

H. Beige--
Your opinion. No ability to get into anything too substantive in a blog comment space, but I disagree with you on Borg. Unbelievably talented, but he fits right in with values of mainstream media. It's why Michael Irvin's not on his couch...Irvin's comments haven't been publicized the way they would have been were everything reversed racially. But, it's not media-correct to call a minority on the carpet for something clearly and objectively wrong. But the leader of the Catholic Church? Borg's on it. A white, known conservative actor(and Catholic, I might add)? Borg's on it. Richards' hate speech? Borg's on it.

I don't defend what Richards or Gibson said, but how about a little even-steven, Borg. Include in your cartoons what the rest of the media is too scared to report. Go to Daugherty's blog and read the link he attached about Michael Irvin, if you want to know more specifics.

C'mon, Jim, your getting way too transparent in your own personal beliefs/agendas.

If it were a big story and Irvin was publicly chagrined then I bet he'd be on the sofa, too.

at 11/29/06, 10:14 AM Blogger Steve Willhite said...

All this is well and good but the REAL question is:
Why is the couch sinking down on the one side?

The expressions on Mel and Michael Richards are hilarious. If that offends anyone, I apologize.

If one wants a different take on things he can always go to Cagle Cartoons on line. It's interesting to see the different takes on a topic from noted cartoonists from around the country. For example, there are a wide variety of Michael Richards comics there. The only problem I found with them was: they stink. (Save for Steve Kelly's). The thought process: A) Let's put Kramer in a KKK hood, B) end of thought process. Cincinnati is lucky -- one might disagree with Borgman's daily views, but there is real ingenuity behind those opinions.
