Clarence Thomas Political Cartoons!
Today the cartoonists bash Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas! Justice Thomas has recently been embroiled in ethics scandals about very expensive vacations, undisclosed gifts and purchases of property paid for by his buddy, billionaire real estate developer, Harlan Crowe, leading to speculation that Thomas has been selling his votes on the court. We also remember Thomas's confirmation hearings, decades ago, where he was accused to sexually harassing Anita Hill. Thomas' wife, Ginni has also been controversial as a conservative activist and conspiracy theory believer, who lobbied the White House and state legislators to overturn the presidential election, to turn the election over to VP Mike Pence to presumably decide the election for President Trump on January 6th. And there were the accusations of workplace sexual harassment made against Thomas by Anita Hill during his confirmation hearings. We have FOUR great cartoonists today: From Maine, RJ MATSON is the cartoonist for Roll Call in Washington DC for over 30 years.

That CRAZY GOP! Brilliant Political Cartoons about CRAZY REPUBLICANS!
Daryl Cagle looks at the BEST cartoons about CRAZY REPUBLICANS with liberal political cartoonists Chris Weyant, Joe Heller, Monte Wolverton and Ed Wexler who show their favorite editorial cartoons focused on the Republican party. They discuss the challenges of getting certain cartoons published, their thoughts on topics such as gun violence, abortion, and the hypocrisy of Republican politicians. Please comment and SUBSCRIBE! Chris Weyant is one of the most popular cartoonists we syndicate. He draws for the Boston Globe and the New York, he does children's books, he was a Harvard Nieman Fellow and a bunch of awards. JOE HELLER was the editorial cartoonist for the Green Bay Wisconsin Press-Gazette for 28 years. He does children's books and, Most impressive to me, Joe's editorial cartoons are self-syndicated to hundreds of newspapers, all by himself --a feat no other cartoonist has achieved. ED WEXLER was an Emmy nominated Creative Director at Disney for thirty years. He was a regular cartoonist for US News and World Report and drew the star studded caricature covers for the Hollywood Reporter’s Emmy and Academy Awards issues for many years. MONTE WOLVERTON, from Washington State draws wonderful, quirky, liberal cartoons that we syndicate everywhere.

Left vs Right! Political Cartoonists Argue Through Their Cartoons!
Liberal and Conservative Cartoonists face off in today's Caglecast! We're joined by two of our most conservative cartoonists, Gary McCoy who also draws two comic strips, "The Duplex" and "The Flying McCoys"; and Rivers, who draws anonymously and joins us with a disguise and an altered voice. And we have liberal cartoonist, Pat Byrnes who is best known for his cartoons in the New Yorker, he draws all kinds of gag cartoons for other magazines, he did a comic strip for years called Monkeyhouse, and he's an advertising illustrator who has won a bunch of awards. And I'm Daryl Cagle, your liberal cartoonist host --so we're evenly divided today. This Caglecast is something of a clash of ideas. I'd like to hear from everyone if they like the cartoonists bumping heads or if they prefer to have giggles and discussions of what pen nibs and programs we use to draw. Please leave a comment, and please subscribe and like wherever you watch or hear this podcast! And visit Cagle.com to see all the new cartoons as they happen.
