My favorite political humorist is definitely Tom Toles.

In fact, back when I was working at my college newspaper I came across this box of old Toles panels that we had already run in the paper and I took them home with me. I still don't know what, if anything, I will ever do with them, but for some reason I just couldn't bring myself to throw them away.

Jan (Margaret Hamilton) Brewer
"Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers arc in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

— H.L. Mencken
On Politics: A Carnival of Buncombe


“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”

— Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Second inaugural address January, 1937

(Don Slutes) An Arizona man, Don Slutes, took a little liberty with The Washington Post front page, doctoring it with an image of Obama laughing and the headline “Gingrich Wins S.C. Primary.” The fake newspaper cover tricked a few people, including the Detroit News. Slutes said he based the montage on a National Lampoon front page of Richard Nixon laughing beneath a “McGovern wins nomination!” headline.
With the tight race in Florida coming to a head Tuesday night, we’ll have to wait to see who has the last laugh.

“A republic,” Franklin said, “if you can keep it.”

Gilligan's island is about as appropriate an analogy for the POGer-fest as you could ever ask for!

Lol!! Too funny. I actually had thought of the the Repubs as Gilligan's Island characters a couple weeks ago--someone else already had that idea. My version of casting was pretty similar, but with Palin and Bachmann switched, and Ron Paul as Gilligan--the SS Minnow actually sank because it was overloaded with too many gold bars. :)

Republigan's Island - very funny.

The only one who didn't need to be photo-shopped is Mitt.
Ron Paul is hilarious.

Well, I consider it humor anyway...

Quote

GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum said the Obama administration’s view of proponents of California’s Proposition 8 amounts to bigotry.

Proposition 8, which was passed in 2008 and banned same-sex marriage in California, was ruled unconstitutional Tuesday by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Santorum, speaking at a campaign stop Wednesday in Texas, said the administration’s view of advocates of Proposition 8 is that their “belief of marriage between a man and a woman is purely irrational based on irrational hatred and bigotry. Where’s the tolerance in that?”
