geez Borgman, you really are pathetic...

Same old worn out, boring story. I bet it takes you 2 minutes to make these cartoons. They require no creativity at all.

A Pulitzer Price winner??? You are a shell of what you used to be.

I typically like a lot of your stuff, but I detest this one because it clearly singles out John McCain. Not only this, but it puts down his great service in the military. I am okay with your disapproval of the war, but not with you singling out McCain and making him look like a sham. This should not have been published.

I give McCain tremendous respect for his service to the country. However, as a Republican, I will have to HOLD MY NOSE when I cast my vote for him.
The man is NOT a good Republican.
McCain sided with Teddy Kennedy on too many issues such as immigration and the drilling for oil in ANWR - offshore.
The only hope I have is that he will appoint reasonably conservative federal justices. But, I FEAR he will be influenced by his Democrat friends in the Stnate when it comes to an appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Remember Republicans gave us justices such as:
Earl Warren
Stephens - what a shame!
Souter

To Democrats: You are in a win-win situation this election year.

God, I miss Ronald Reagan.

And I, personally, can't stand my fellow republicans who say they won't vote for McCain because he's "too moderate." I wasn't aware that it was a necessity in America to be polarized and uncompromising. Shouldn't we be respecting McCain for his ability to see multiple sides of issues and represent a middle ground between very opposite ends of the political divide?

And as for you, Jim, I think that the 100 years' war is a preposterous title for this cartoon. Keep in mind that:
A- McCain hasn't won, don't pretend he's our President and that he's the reason for this war.
B- Even if he gets elected, people can choose someone else in 2012.
C- If liberals are so afraid that McCain will let our country go down the tubes with war and immigrants... fine. Find a candidate who you think is better. Let them try and win.
D- It's not fair to make it sound like a vote for McCain is a vote for 100 years of war. A President serves a max of 8 years. Besides, if he's elected, it will be a representation that America wants a leader who has a plan for our military besides quitting.

Was not our President correct in his desire to drill for oil in ANWR and offshore?

What about our failure to construct some 100+ nuclear power plants in this country. This should have started in the 1960s. What was the Democrat problem with this?

How many oil refineries have been built in the U.S. in the past 30 years?

28-Million people are free in Iraq thanks to our troops and nation's leadership.
If it wasn't for us they would be underneath the tyrany of a crazed dictator that loved fillin mass graves.
It seems a shame that our lefty friends can't get that fact.
Toss in the 31-million people in Afganhistan who are now not under the thumb of the Talliban... I think we should be willing to stay and assist the people in those countries for as long as it takes.
I for one am proud my tax money is being spent for something as humanitarian as that is.

Don't let the hawks get you down Jim! Keep speaking your mind, that's what makes editorial cartoons great (especially yours)!

Great cartoon....

It confuses many of our friends on the right that there ARE A LOT of veterans who are especially upset with the way this war has been conducted.

Many of these confused people get their news and views from the chickenhawks at Fox and talk radio, so the thoughts of a veteran probably don't make it to them. Its why they don't like John McCain as well. Luckilly, that cult is on its way out, as many Republicans have learned that voting the way of Rush is not a good idea.

I know several people who are versions of the woman you portray in this cartoon. It is really spot on.

...bet you'd support a candidate who promised abortion on demand for another 100 years...what's the death count on Roe now anyway? 45 million?
talk about a shameful legacy for liberals...

We'll never see them here again.

Anyone who claims that one party is better/different than the other is the jackass, my well scrubbed friend. You've obviuosly had your head buried in the sand for years.

HEY TOM:

Is that your real name. With all of the kooks out there I would be afraid of being harrassed.

You can start with one name on the internet and find out quite a bit about one person. I would never post my name because I fear identity theft.

Speaking of theft, let's wait and see Hillary Clinton's tax plans.

Do you, Mr. Blakenship, she will allow the Bush tax to expire and that will be it?

I don't. I think there will be some creative and hidden tricks up her sleeve.

And, BTW, what is your problem with Republicans? You are in a win-win situation this year, be it Clinton
Obama or
McCain.

Ain't much difference there.

Yes JIM you are 100% right on with your cartoon....tag line "I'm against anyone who will keep us in this war."

I disagree that it singles out John McCain. Mr. Romney has also been a supporter of the propaganda/lie that "the surge is working."

Jim, you have a few months to practice drawing former Democratic Vice Presidential Candidate Joe Lieberman (if you can believe that)...as my hunch is that he will be tapped as McCain's running mate. Lieberman has been constantly at McCain's side, and when this year's Democratic Presidential candidates were "banned" from campaigning in Florida, the now Independent Joe Lieberman was busily fundraising the South Florida area for John McCain.

well, considering we can't really figure out what the war is for:

war-for-oil
war-for-revenge
war-for-war
war-cause-we've-run-out-of-other-solutions
war-cause-we-think-we-can-justify-it

another show of brilliance
how can christians support this unjust war?

Hey Tom...I've had letters published in the Enquirer criticizing Borgman's cartoons with my name and area of residence attached.Guess what? I get HATE MAIL from LIBS in my mailbox for having the balls to say what I have to say IN PRINT.The LIBS on the other hand feel the need to spit in my face ANONYMOUSLY via the US Post Office.
Ya think I'm makin' this up? Think again.By the way...my wife gets quite concerned when a letter of mine is published...she's worried we'll get a brick thru the front window from a LIB reader.Ya think I'm makin' this up,too? Think again.

Yes, Tom Blankenship is my real name. Sorry I don't have a Blogger account. I guess I can get one if that'll make you all happy.

I shouldn't have blanketed all Republicans in my comment, but it does seem like there is a lot of vile anti-Democrat/anti-Liberal comments on this blog. Being more vile than necessary. Could be because Mr. Borgman is obviously a Democrat.

"Still Anonymous" ... I'm sure hate mail originates from Republicans as well as Democrats. Heated discussions sometime lead to irrational behavior and that's stupid.
It's good to see that doesn't stop you from your comments. Don't let those idiots intimidate you.

I just hope there is more civil debate here. Some of you have made excellent points in this comment section.

I just picked up an old Newsweek from the library (Nov 12th) to read while my kids were looking at books and found a very interesting quote from Mayor Bloomberg "I think there's much too much partisanship. I've been a democrat, I've been a Republican, and now I am an independent... You'll find despicable people and brilliant, philanthropic patriots in both parties."

I don't know much about Mayor Bloomberg but I can't agree more. The conservative right is mad at McCain because he likes to compromise with the democrats. Funny I thought that was what good government was all about finding compromise and working together!

9:39 Good post (What's this war about?).
I'm pretty sure it's about OIL - we gotta have it.
If Darfur had oil, W'd be all over that "humanitarian cause".

---------------------------------

Compromise is necessary in all facets of life. The sad thing is that Senator McCain buys into the silliness of global warming which is nothing more than a Democrat/liberal/enviro-waco mmeans to extract more (much more) money from us. And...And...And... it is a way to control our lives, our private property, our travel and our freedoms.

Yes, I will HOLD MY NOSE when casting the vote for McCain. For the first time ever - - - on election night -- I'm going to bet at 9:30 PM and willnot watch one second of the news/returns.

I have always, since the 1960s - stayed up as late as it took. Not this year!

Jim, the rule of thumb today seems to be to make your message short enough so as to appear on a bumper sticker. Which is next to impossible.

Except for today's cartoon. Your message is just nearly perfect. Thank you.
