Daily Scribble finishes No. 2 in voting for best Web political cartoon of 2004

"Pithy, witty, funny and on top of the news. What blogs are to political commentary, the Daily Scribble is to the editorial cartoon. I keep coming back for more."  Joshua Micah Marshall, Talking Points Memo.

"Though Charles Pugsley Fincher would do well to find a stage name, his daily scribbles are nothing to scoff at. Plain and simple, on lined yellow scratch paper, yet they speak volumes." Jacob Wheeler,

George W. Bush has nominated his long-time, trusted alter ego, Karen Hughes, for undersecretary of state for public diplomacy. See Washington Post. In that role, Hughes job is to change the negative Islamic perceptions of America. While Hughes has a background in public relations, she doesn't have experience in diplomacy.

No doubt Karen Hughes is a very competent person. However, her loud, aggressive delivery of incessant spinning of behalf of George W. Bush puts me off. It makes everything Hughes says uninteresting because there is nothing of her in it, only the never-ending spinning.

Hughes seems an ironic choice to convert Muslims given her alter ego status with Bush the nickname given her by journalists: Nurse Ratched. Bush has three nicknames for her: Lima Green Bean, Hurricane Karen and The High Prophet. See Dan Froomkin's White House Briefing in the Washington Post.
