Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

Jim Borgman has been the Enquirer's editorial cartoonist since 1976. 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. His award-winning daily comic strip Zits, co-created with Jerry Scott, chronicles the life of 15-year-old Jeremy Duncan, his family and friends through the glories and challenges of the teenage years. Since debuting in July 1997, Zits has regularly finished #1 in reader comics polls across America and is syndicated in more than 1300 newspapers around the world.

New Conservative White Guy

Reminds me, conversely, of Victor Mature when he was turned down for membership in a country club which said it didn't admit actors. Mature replied, "Im no actor, and have 67 pictures to prove it."

Jim, where has your creativity gone?

11:18 p.m. Anonymous, I hope you're the same jerk on the other blog postings that keeps going around trying to start a fight in the comments area, because I would hate to think there are two of you knuckleheads out there.

If you're going to bitch and whine about Jim's creativity, why not back it up with a cartoon idea that's even better than his? I don't think you can.

By the way, stop being a coward and sign your name to your blog posts. At least Jim has the balls to sign his opinion.

I'm sorry anonymous, you're right. Jim really has lost all of his creativity. And I don't think that you need to back up another cartoon with one of your own, because that's not your job. This guy makes a living off of making stupid, unoriginal cartoons. It's a shame to see him fall this far.

But you still need to post your name, because it makes sooo much of a difference!

Re Trolls: We must ignore these knee jerk jerks. They add nothing (and even stoop low enough to sign other people's names).

Good one.

While I wouldn't agree with anonymous (11:18) in general, I do feel this cartoon is a bit weak. The drawing is funny, and almost saves the idea, but because it's from such an undramatic point of view, it doesn't quite do enough for the weak idea.

Granted, I don't think I can suggest anything better. My first instinct probably would have been to make a Flintstones reference, but that's pretty lame, too.

I think there are enough targets in this election right now who are both easier to hit, and more gratifying, than this guy.

Might have been more effective if the drawing actually looked like Fred Thompson. Looks more like a recycled Nixon characature.

If you could actually see *IDEAS* rather than physical appearance, then you would see the difference. Typical liberal response to be more interested in what someone looks like, rather than what someone thinks

T: Congrats on "Support our Oops"
Good one!
PS: I hope you also leave constructive criticism for your fellow artists that is appreciative of successful efforts.

JimBo can make bucks at Stanley Chesley's drawing cariacatures during Hillary fund raisers ! That would be original, in an F Scott Fitzgerald sort of way.
