"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 Scribble has been nominated for best Web cartoon of the year at About.com along with four others (something I didn't know had happened till alerted). If you like the Scribble, please go there and vote for it. Thanks, Charles Fincher.
Karl Rove wants to dry up trial lawyers' contributions to the Democrats. Trial lawyers and unions are the biggest Democratic contributors. One way to do this is with so-called "tort reform." It's a simple formula: If trial lawyers make less money, they have less to contribute. Rove and Bush did this previously in Texas.
Does anyone else benefit from this? I doubt it. My health insurance premiums have actually gone up since the Rove - Bush tort reform here.
There's a piece in today's Washington Post about the new Rove-Bush agenda for the next four years: Med-mal caps, tax cuts and privatization of parts of social security. The article mentions that Bush will go around the nation building support for the agenda much as he did to gain public support for invading Iraq. He'll warn of dire consequences if his legislation doesn't pass the report says.
