We’d like to take a break from Hurricane Sandy coverage to present MikeV’s amazing idea for any last minute pumpkin carvers out there that also happen to be die-hard TMNT fans like we are.

The Artist behind “Dilbert” is a Democrat — but says he’s voting for Romney.

The doodler is blaming the Obama administration for enforcing federal drug laws that earned Aaron Sandusky, a 41-year-old from Southern California, a 10-year prison term for running a medical marijuana dispensary.“While President Obama didn’t technically kill a citizen, he is certainly ruining this fellow’s life, and his family’s lives, and the lives of countless other minor drug offenders,” Adams wrote. “And he is doing it to advance his career. If that’s not a firing offense, what the hell is?”


People are still reading Dilbert?

Hold up for a second. While Obama’s faced some understandable criticism over his handling of medical marijuana laws, the prior president spent millions of dollars investigating and prosecuting Tommy Chong for running a business that sold bongs — not even the drug themselves — because the administration wanted to set a high-profile example. Romney has a far tougher stance on this issue than Obama does, and he’s on the record for saying “I’m going to fight it tooth and nail.” If this is what’s going to make Scott Adams bend, why isn’t he voting for Gary Johnson? He actually has a platform that runs counter to either of the two candidates.
(Side note: Scott Adams is complaining about media outlets misrepresenting what he’s said on the blog post. If you’re going to complain, Scott, then give a better reason for voting for Romney than claiming “he’s enough of a chameleon and a pragmatist that one can’t be sure” he’ll stick with a tough marijuana policy. Saying we’re going to fire a president for something the other candidate is likely to also do is no way to deal with a problem. If you think we’re taking you out of context, too, it’s because you’ve created a terrible context.)

A brilliant new take on New Yorker cartoons

We put these skeletons together to make it look like they’re dancing.

In the “ideas we wish we’d thought of” department: This blog is devoted to taking New Yorker cartoons, stripping out the captions, and replacing them with dialogue that describes, in the most literal fashion possible, what is happening. This is our favorite thing since Garfield Minus Garfield

Steve Jobs arrives in heaven, by editorial cartoonist Dave Fitzsimmons.

We couldn’t figure out the right way to start this morning, considering the news … but this seems like the obvious path in retrospect.

As you might guess I am torn. On the one hand I understand their reasoning. They did the same thing to my comic strip Prickly City a few years back in a series on Ted Kennedy. This was before I was on staff here. So this is not a new policy aimed squarely at liberal comic strips as has been suggested. On the other hand, it ticked me off when it happened to me. As a creator you never want your work stiflied. You know that.
Chicago Tribune cartoonist Scott Stantis • Discussing his paper’s decision to pass on running a week of Doonesbury strips that openly cite passages from a biography on Sarah Palin — “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin,” an unauthorized tome written by Joe McGinniss. The Tribune’s reasoning for skipping out on the strip this week is reasonable — the book isn’t on the market yet, so they can’t check it on their own — but nonetheless has ruffled a few feathers. Stantis’ take, of course, is interesting. source (viafollow)
