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.

Fear Bomb

are you pushing obama so that you can keep your job with the enquirer?

anon 5:52.....he's not pushing obama so he can keep his job, he's doing it because he can't think up an original idea anymore.

oh, and i guess nothing else is going on in the world.

Well, one could quibble about the basic premise of the cartoon (recall the dragged-out, months-long process leading up to the war in Iraq, including multiple Congressional votes, and compare it to the caricature [in more ways than one] of instant reaction here).

Both of the Bushes have gone to bed, and it's clear W. has been woken up (no books or other things). And he's having a pizza delivered?

If he had a book (cue for "My Pet Goat" here -- I'll pre-empt the ones who love to zap W.), or other papers, one could buy the gag better. Note that this is a critique of the gag element more than the political element, which I mostly shrug off.

Come Christmas morning, there's going to be one very dissapointed little cartoonist...(One year into the Obama administration when change won't be all it was cracked up to be)

if that were Bill Clinton in bed at 3AM it'd be Monica delivering the pizza as she'd famously done before.

Jim: one word describes my reaction to this...

I mean seriously... have you started doing drugs? Or do you really not have any better ideas than "I hate Dubya"??

Hillary would be too busy hiding her income tax returns

WWAAAAAAAHHHH! You did a "I hate Bush" cartoon.

Shut up you freaks! The Bush Administration is over.
It's time to start spraying disinfectant all over the office, ShopVac up the blood, shread the Halliburton checks Dick Cheney left laying around and get the country back on track.

I love the boot lamp and horse paintings on the wall. I was suprised there was no "My Pet Goat" book on George's side of the bed.

Geez Jim, I'm a Democrat and even I have to say your cartoons are starting to be really pathetic.

Is this really the best you can come up with??

The answer he gives isn't Obama, it's "anybody else". How is this pushing Obama? Jim, I know you had thought about ending comments at the end of last year, and I can see why. I love all your cartoons, don't let the comments get you down. For your sake, I hope you don't actually read them. Keep up the good work! We're lucky to have you!

C'mon, don't you get it? It's not poor logic on Borgman's part--Bush is sound asleep at 3 a.m. but the pizza delivery guy is calling back (they always call back, right?)to, I guess, inquire more about the pizza that Bush ordered while he was asleep (at 3a.m.). Bush wakes up--totally forgetting about the pizza he ordered--and orders an airstrike on Iran because his evil trumps his stupidity.

Why can't you get that?

Man, tough crowd. I'd hate to go to Caddy Combs with y'all! (yes i know it's out of business)

Borgman did lampoon Clinton, and Gore while they were in office. I will put money on him doing the same for Obama if he takes it.

As for Obama, he's not slinging mud and he can speak in coherent sentences. It certainly puts him above certain other politicians. ;)

9:16...only LIBS see Bush as evil.
Was it 3AM when Bubba ordered that strike on the aspirin factory?

at 3/4/08, 3:46 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Clinton ordered the strike on the asprin factory as retaliation against all of Hillary's claimed headaches.

Uh, shouldn't that be "whom?"

at 3/4/08, 5:38 PM Anonymous T.Nowicki said...

Edit: After some thought, no, it shouldn't.

"Who" does something, "whom" has something done to it.

Astounding. No matter what, the minion followers of the Worst.President. Ever. will still rise to defend any slap at His Idiocy.

Are there still Nixon apologists out there too?

There is one terrifying fact: Islam is after us. And, Islam has been after us way before 9/11, and they will continue to be after us until we are all dead.

So Jim, if you're such a brave award winning cartoonist / satirist, then why not give us a pioneering award winning and brave cartoon lambasting Islam?
