Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons.... John Crowther's Cartoon Odyssey

I think of it as The Fool's Journey. I've been asked who the "fool" is. It's me, but in the classical sense of the court jester. Only the fool was allowed to tell the king of his follies. All cartoons are available as prints or originals, framed or unframed, through my website or e-mail.

Accentuate the Positive

Negative campaigning has got a bad name, and it's a darn shame. Don't get me wrong, I believe it's incumbent on candidates to make a case for what they intend to accomplish once elected, and how they plan to accomplish it, but along the way it makes sense that they attempt to convince the electorate that the other guy is the wrong man for the job. Negative campaining is not the issue, false, misleading, distorted, and dishonest campaigning is.

Did you like this cartoon so much that you decided to treat the public to it, again?

My bleary-eyed bad, anonymous. By the time you read this I'll have replaced it with the one that was supposed to run today.

Cool cartoon John.

(Geez anonymous... you're on the ball. So that's all you have to say then?) ;-)

I've always had a remarkable grasp of the obvious.

While I, on the other hand, have an astonishingly good grasp of the oblivious.

I'm delighted you like it, Lee, but actually this one isn't the rerun. I'd originally reposted the cartoon from a couple of days ago by accident. Anonymous graciously called attention to my screw-up with a sly dash of sarcasm. [grin]
