"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.



Fincher's political cartoon for newspapers.
"I think Thadeus & Weez is wonderful. You've hooked me." Jim Lehrer, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.

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: HHS nominee, Mike Leavitt, puts on Alberto Gonzales over his vetting of Bernie Kerik. [ Archive ].

Bernie Kerik's story has legs as revelations about his background continue. No doubt the White House would like it to go away. George W. Bush is supposed to have been very enthusiastic about Kerik having felt like the two had bonded. Karl Rove isn't one to rely on touchy-feely stuff like Bush does when he looks someone in the eye and sees his soul. Frances Townsend, Bush's adviser on Homeland Security, was a federal prosecutor in New York, but supposedly wasn't consulted about Kerik because she too had been under consideration for the spot. Also reported is that Kerik used an apartment that was for police to rest in from dealing with Ground Zero as a love nest that overlooked the scene. Joe Lieberman has reportedly turned down a Bush offer to run Homeland Security.
