Today's Patriotic Sketches

Just sketchin' in front of the old TV last night. Everybody loves Chesley Sullenberger, aka: Sully, but I'd be leery if I saw him hanging around outside my son's elementary school. Nor would I trust Bobby Jindal with those close-set eyes. Isn't it odd to look at his Indian features and hear that hillbilly pre-school teacher's voice come out? That's probably racist, definitely anti-hillbilly. Finally, I was about to give up on drawing Joe Biden with his odd-shaped dome and permanently downturned, but not frowning mouth. I can draw a cartoon of Obama, ears, chin, the two lines on his face, but still can't really draw him. But Madame Speaker...Oh, you have a face a cartoonist can truly love.

Where did Jindal give that speech? In the front hallway of somebody's McMansion? No, I know it was the Louisiana governor's mansion, that's why he had the two flags standing there right next to him. He carries those around with him I bet.

Here's too much sharing:

Nancy Pelosi looks like my mom.

Note the same deer in the headlights eyes and scary forced frozen smile that looks as though it's about to reach critical mass.

Now you know.

I love drawing Pelosi. Your Obama looks just like him. I don't know how you manage to draw these people and always nail them in so few lines. You are a credit to your race. And by race I mean, cartoonist.
