Political Mugs, Ts, Sweats

"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, Utne.com.

The Illustrated Daily Scribble is an ultra-current blog of my raw sketches about the day's news drawn on legal pads. I'll post new material here Monday through Friday. Yesterday's cartoon is now in the archive: Bush protestors in Canada, Red Cross and Gitmo torture. And arrest? [ Archive ]

Yesterday in Canada, George W. Bush became defensive. He was asked by a reporter is he is partly responsible for the increasing distance between Canada and the U.S. shown by Canadian polls. Bush responded defensively that his reelection had been a poll that showed that Americans want four more years of his foreign policy. I don't, and had hoped he would moderate it some in the security of a victory. Apparently, he's still insecure about all the foreign policy mistakes made during his first term.

The following is from the New York Times report on the above incidence:

"President Bush on Tuesday thanked Canadians who waved a welcome to him 'with all five fingers' on his first official visit to their country, but he also appeared defensive at a time when he was expected to reach out and try to repair the rift over the war in Iraq.

"When Mr. Bush was asked by a Canadian reporter at a joint news conference with Prime Minister Paul Martin why public opinion polls showed the two countries drifting apart, and whether he bore any responsibility, he responded, 'You know, I haven't seen the polls you look at, and we just had a poll in our country where people decided that the foreign policy of the Bush administration ought to be - stay in place for four more years.' "
