Disrupt the Narrative breaks Blog’s record hits for one day

21 Feb

Thanks to Pajamas Media/Tatler, Instapundit and the Daily Cartoonist “The SOURCE for industry news for the professional cartoonist” for the linking this blog. Who knew there was a website for professional cartoonists? But why wouldn’t there be? It just never crossed my mind. That’s pretty cool.

And thanks to readers for dropping by.

Can I get you anything? A lovely cup of tea? Shot of bourbon? Anything?

I’ve been a fan of political cartooning since I was a kid and have admired the art as a medium where disagreeable things can be said without provoking the wrath that a written or spoken editorial does.

Oliphant and uberPsycho Ted Rall excepted.

This is an ancient art going back centuries and becomes particularly interesting as a major influence toward our Revolution and the founding of the country.

I’m a particular fan of Thomas Nast (1840-1902), father of Uncle Sam, Santa Claus and the Elephant and Donkey. He covered the Civil War, Andrew Johnson, Boss Tweed and Tammany Hall and the reconstruction period. But I digress.

One of the commenters on the Daily Cartoonist link to Disrupt is like-minded cartoonist Mike Lester from the Rome News Tribune.

Since y’all seem to enjoy ‘toons too, here’s today’s from Mike Lester that ought to make you smile.
