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.

you can do much better jim. you don't do enough to capture how tired so many people are of the current administration and their criminal policies and what a fresh voice obama is.

besides if you listen to willie you would know obama would never stand before a flag.

How apt.

I heard a talk show host in PA telling people in Ohio to vote for Hillary. They did.

You should do a cartoon about the Clinton lies about NAFTAgate.

This is a good time, I think, to ask a neutral, technical question of Herr Doktor Borgman:

At what point do you consider it "safe" to stop putting a label (i.e. button or other indicia) identifying a figure? For example, you no longer need to ID Sen. Obama.

Hi Jim, good cartoon--great drawing. I couldn't help noticing, however, that the flag is hanging backward (union goes on the left.) Maybe a distress signal?

at 3/8/08, 7:32 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

He did label Obama on the signs below.
But a decent Obama caricature doesn't need a label at all.

I want more people drawn at the bottom of the cartoon. Seems very bare with a person here and there.

Actually Obama stood before a flag at the UC rally. There is proof of that at the UC sudent-run newspaper; check it out for yourself. Go Bobcats! ooops....thanks Obama

if Obama wins in November,you should draw a cartoon of the Middle East heads of state and terror cells laughing at the boy racism intended...ask Barack to spell potato...that's a qualifier for The WH you know.

Great, thanks. Jim, did you do a 'toon with several middle-easterns in robes asking to speak to Obama? I couldn't find it. I like it. Thanks for that, too.

no way Obama gets the
ya know,another Clinton presidency is just what this country deserves.Hillary will make Bill's reign of incompetency and dereliction look like brilliance when she starts driving the car...thank God for seat belts and air bags...we're about to go over the freakin cliff.

Come on Jim, seriously. I'm really tired of what is becoming pro-Obama propaganda day after day. I may even support him, but seriously, try to detach yourself. Not only is is bias, but this cartoon is pretty dull... just something you did to hype your guy.

The flag is hanging backwards. The union (field of stars) always goes on the upper left whether hung up & down or left & right.

Perhaps this is the new liberal flag like the one on the TV show Jericho.

Ahhhhhh. Very good catch, Major.

Not that liberals like Mr. Borgman would know any better.

Maybe next time, Mr. Borgman can just draw a white flag behind Obama? Or maybe a Crescent Moon flag?

Can you turn off anonymous posting. That would clear up a lot of noise on your blog...

Attention poster: When readers want to read the news they can go to the site and read it, maybe you can post links to articles you wish to alert others to vs spamming someone else's blog.

And on another note, the comic is not "liberal" or "pro Obama", it points fun at everyone (including the media's) weak knees whenever Obama speaks. A point that McCain and Clinton both do not appreciate.

I think your work is brilliant even if I do not agree with your point of view.

Clinton, Obama court Ravenstahl's support
Monday, March 10, 2008
By Rich Lord, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
On Friday, former President Bill Clinton called. This morning, it was Sen. Barack Obama. Seems that with Pennsylvania the next big prize in the presidential nomination battle, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl is a hot political commodity.

Y'know 6:53;
When I grew up - in the Reagan era - spying on citizens, encuraging citizens to spy on each other, torture and imprisoning citizens without charge were all hallmarks of the USSR and East Germany.

These countries and habits were the enemy of freedom and the US way of life. How funny is it now that the party of Reagan supports all these things?
