What is up with this:

I mistyped the blog URL and got that site.

Twilight Zone, indeed.

jim, why is the candidate a middle aged white male? you chastise the republican party for having no diversity, yet you choose a middle age white man to represent a candidate for president. what gives? i understand that if you drew a woman, or black man, readers would assume it was hillary or obama, but you're a good enough cartoonist to make the distinction clear when you want it to be, and there are other colors besides white and black, no? (even though this one was printed without color, you can still do different shades)

If you had to depict a stereotype (an oversimplified conception) of a Presidential candidate how would you draw it? Generally speaking, it would have to be a middle-aged white male at this point in history, as the field of current candidates shows.

look at borgman's cartoon on the 19th. he's obviously criticizing the republican party for having all white males running for president, yet he turns around and draws the same thing. so either he has a problem with it, or he doesnt.

dont be a hypocrite, borgman.

How do you know those are Republicans, genius?

i'll type this slowly since clearly you're unable to read my comments. no where did i imply that man was a republican. so what does that mean? he had the field wide open! he could have drawn a man or woman in many colors besides white, yet as soon as he got the chance to, he ignores his own criticism! you would think someone who lectures about diversity would take every opportunity to promote diversity. NOPE!

Last night I took a Newsweek quiz. Did OK, except for the questions on the presidential candidates. I had no clue that there were really that many! And several that I'd never even heard of. Now I don't feel so bad after reviewing your cartoon. So true!

What a bunch of lunkhead comments.

People like you kill me ... you get on Borgman if he draws a white guy, but if he drew a woman or a black or anything else, you'd complain that he's pushing his "agenda" onto you and your delicate sensibilities. You're so wrapped up in complaining about Borgman, you aren't even worried about what he's writing about -- you're just looking for something to comment on.
