Enthusiasm Gap

you should've drawn a young guy,scruffy beard,wearing a hoodie as the enthusiastic voter...the guy you've drawn would never vote for a democrat...he's too old and looks to normal to vote for a democrat...unless he's been forced to by his union.

Good luck voting for Hillary on Tuesday, Jim!

Remember when you thought it would be over by the time Ohio votes??

what a bunch of hooey. there's lots of us "normal" people who refuse to drink the kool aid or let some authoritarian preacher tell us how to get dressed.

today truly is an exciting day. with each passing day we get closer to taking our country back from the fascists.

I am and am a Rep switching for just 1 day...I've learned "dirty tricks" by observing your side.Deal with it.
now...back to my refreshing glass of morning Kool-aid.

Jim-your pictation of the Republicans are great! Although, I do agree with other posters, the Dem should be a younger and probably un-informed. I still say no to Billary!

Hate to break to the anonymous posters but my experience volunteering for the Dems and then working the polls on election day in Cincinnati and plenty of "normal" folks vote Democrat.

It's easy to stereotype a person you disagree with, but it doesn't make you correct.

Hey, Jim, remember when you took the blog down for a while because most of the comments were just nasty, and not related to the cartoons, and you said maybe you'd moderate the conversation when it came back? Well, the time is now. Why do you give a platform to people who hate you and have no respect for society, and only use this space to further their own agendas? Your cartoons are the only reason a continue to buy the Enquirer.

10:35...YES! Indeed...shut out the people who don't fawn over the Pulitzer winning cartoonist! Only 1 point of view should be made here.
Nastyness? Please...politics isn't a Sunday Ice Cream Social.I've seen my share of meanness drawn as a cartoon in the op/ed pages of Enquirer more times than I can count.
Now...back to that refreshing glass of Kool-Aid...ahhhhhhhh :)

More importantly, Jim should be deleting posts from people that submit extra-long posts that are barely on topic or those that are obviously repetitive rants from the same person posting repeatedly as anonymouse. For an example, see the first post. Is this really an appropriate place to advertise?

I really enjoyed this cartoon. I am a democracy nerd who always arrives first at my voting station, even on off-year elections (why is it always raining on the big election mornings?). Usually, It's a long time before anyone joins me in line, but this year, there was already a pretty healthy-sized unit formed at the door when I arrived. Everyone was psyched and chit-chatty about the democratic race, and here we were right in the middle of Jean Schmidt country (Hopefully as many people were as excited about Victoria Wulsin as they were about Barack Obama). Anyway, this cartoon at least captured my feelings well as I left the building.

I agree with Schmidt. You should request a meeting with her to discuss Borgman's cartoon. Could the democrat ballot been a little longer? It seemed too short and, well, it was anti-climatic. Anyway, I would like to submit my off-topic conversation... - what is a Daley Hack Chicago Style or Hack Chicago Daley Style or Daley Hack Style Chicago politician? Is that like a Daley Style Politician but deeper?

I monitor the comments very loosely and agree that the rambling random cut-and-paste comments are the most detracting. Never have and never will remove a comment because it disagrees with my cartoons -- the whole point of the work is to promote debate.

This is great! Where can I get a sticker like this? I love voting, not just this year, and hate this whole "vote early, vote absentee" movement that's hit the area lately--right when I've started being in my district on election day, too--because those poor people don't get to wear "I voted" stickers. Yes, it's a good day to be a Democrat in Ohio.

At 18 I voted in the primary as a Republican, somewhere, 30ish, right around the time of the Clarence Thomas hearings, I registered as a Democrat, still there. 50 years all together. What, someone thinks older people can't be liberal?

If you're under 20 and conservative, you have no heart.

If you're over 30 and liberal, you have no head.

Wish I could remember who said that.

at 3/5/08, 2:18 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

hey 10:41 ..and if you voted for Bill-ary, "your heart is right beside your wallet, and that's where it's staying" (thanks to the great Dave Wakeling for that line).Morally, ethically bankrupt, the ambition of the Clintons reeks of the stench of "class" and power, a far cry from the egalitarian idealism of Sen Obama.
Shame "they" had to distort and destroy to "win". Dick Morris and Karl Rove must be soo proud !

at 3/5/08, 10:51 AM Blogger Philip Shade said...

7:04 - Not that I agree with it, but here you go:

The phrase originated with Francois Guisot (1787-1874): "Not to be a republican at twenty is proof of want of heart; to be one at thirty is
proof of want of head." It was revived by French Premier Georges
Clemenceau (1841-1929): "Not to be a socialist at twenty is proof of
want of heart; to be one at thirty is proof of want of head."

Slade, et al: When I was 18, Ike was rebuilding Germany, Europe and Japan, very socialistic. He warned of the military/industrial entity dominating the rest of my lifetime. He was right. Now I'm supporting conservative attempts to balance this wonderful country. So how does the addage apply?
