U.S.A. ELECTION 2016 POLITICAL CARTOONS
Original art and thoughts by About Town regarding issues of the campaign: Are Parties "bankrupt" of ideas? Is GOP victim of a dark Trojan Horse or bear? (A form of "Wag The Dog 'Part Two'?")
MR. CONNECTICUT PROGRESSIVE
Preceded by attack from West Wing? The one last try upcoming...State of Washington results;
THE END OF THE WORLD COMING JANUARY 20, 2017? HATES CRIMES COMMITTED BY...
WE ARE SHOCKED THAT BUSINESS EXPERIENCE NOW RULES! (FYI - IN RUSSIAN "HACK" MEANS "PARTY WORKER" ).
HOW MUCH CAN PRESIDENT DO IN THE FIRST 100 DAYS? PLENTY.
WILL THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE TURN "FAITHLESS" VOTERS? MINOR KEY FOR CHORAL AND SAX MUSICAL INTERLUDES DEC. 19 IN CT.
- Accept it initially, then support recounts;
- When recounts award more votes to your winning opponent...
- Cry Russian intervention prior to Electoral College vote Dec. 19...
- "Faithless Voters" in the end award more votes to...your
opponent??? Maybe??? You have to understand who is voting in
the Electoral College - this is a big Party Plum for the most loyal
Party folks. So in States where "winner takes all" the electors in
the Electoral College are high ranking Dem or GOP faithful.
- Attack by e-mail - as Michael Moore is reported in a NYC tabloid to
have obtained e-mail addresses for those in the Electoral College who
have e-mail addresses to be inundated.
PRESIDENT -ELECT DEVELOPING HIS SKILLS AT "TRUMPING" FOE OR IS IT FAUX...
IN ADDITION TO DEAD PEOPLE IN CHICAGO VOTING...WITH A RECOUNT IN
THREE STATES. MAYBE JILL STEIN WILL WIN? MEANWHILE P.O.T.U.S. -
ELECT #45 INTERVIEWS GO ON...
President-Elect Donald Trump has always thought the system of early
voting and absentee ballots = "rigged" and with the recounts
coming we'll see if the "rigging" favored one Party over another. Last time we looked, "National Popular Vote Compact" not agreed by 270 electoral votes from State Legislatures. Meanwhile, Cabinet taking shape...
GREEN PARTY ACTS TO DO SOMETHING.
It ain't over 'til it's over as Yogi Berra commented some time
ago...what are the recount deadlines in the 50 states? And when
does the Electoral College meet?
The Arbiter of Truth Now Endorses Hillary

Some deplorable e-mails, don't you think? Especially since the Democrats are blaming Russia?
And here is some more, related to BREXIT, thanks to I-BBC: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-37677020
SO THERE. LINCOLN BEDROOM NOT IN PLAY.
Hillary cleared by F.B.I. again. Lincoln Bedroom for rent on Airbnb?
GUESS WHAT? F.B.I. THINKS TWICE AND DECIDES...E-MAIL-GATE IS TUCKED UNDER THE RUG AGAIN.
SATURDAY NIGHT MASSACRE, 2016 VERSION, COMING?
Remember another night where a President orders members of the Cabinet to fire someone???
REMEMBER WHEN DRAGNET WAS THE RAGE? SGT. JOE FRIDAY? "JUST THE FACTS MA'AM." NATIONAL SECURITY "TRUMPS" THE FIFTH AMENDMENT???
Wikileaks release "to lead to the arrest of Hillary" who is thinking her U.S. Supreme Court will manage to get around the "can't be tried twice for the same offense."
TRUMP PRESIDENCY MIMIC NOBEL PRIZE-WINNER LEAVING OFFICE? WOULD HILLARY GET THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE TOO?
Now we know there is a conspiracy involving an international
organization that reaches billions worldwide. Its retrograde
belief regarding when "life" begins at odds with Progressives?
IF THE SHOE FITS DEPARTMENT ABOVE - WHO NEEDS SECURE BORDERS? IS
IT TRUE CHACHA WAS ON THE V-P LIST TOO? AND SHE DECLINED!!!
DEBATE #2 OVER. This election is a classic -
movie or book? Titanic or Moby Dick? Someone goes down with
the ship, (not women or children). Or gets skewered ("gored"). Oops.
Somehow, with everyone in the world seeming to be deserting him, The
Donald has become someone that I admire for not quitting...and I'll
admire Hillary Clinton if she can keep a straight face and not laugh at
W A T E R S H E D E L E C T I O N N O V . 8 T H ?
Are Millennials living in the basement of family house because they can't afford to move out? Perhaps end of racist home ownership tax deductions?
OMG, DEPLORABLY, PEOPLE CAN'T VOTE THE WAY THEY WANT TO... http://www.ctnewsjunkie.com/archives/entry/op-ed_is_hillarys_fire_aimed_at_the_wrong_candidate/
DEBATE #1 - Only my fifth grade teacher Mrs. Gary could have handled this job...DEBATE #2 - Tag team wrestling again for DEMS (2 against 1)?
FORMAT DESIGNED FOR CANDIDATE TAKEOVER - AN EXPERIENCED LWVCT TRAINED MODERATOR WOULD HAVE BEEN FAIR AND DONE MUCH BETTER.
PRIOR TO FIRST DEBATE: "All the news that fits we print." Democrats a "drug on the market" in CT?
Previously reported, according to its editorial board,
Donald Trump may have a point! So a couple of weeks before the
first debate, it advises Bill and Hill to cut ties so "e-mail gate" is
neutered...but wait - is Donald Trump really interested in participating
in a "rigged" election anyway? Check the latest from the NYTIMES
that almost blames him for this: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/03/nyregion/trapped-in-a-tollbooth-and-targeted-for-harassment.html?action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=photo-spot-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&hp
WOMEN OF ANY COLOR HAD TO WAIT UNTIL 1920 TO VOTE.
Somebody finally says it: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/sep/21/don-king-every-white-woman-should-vote-trump/

"What was that boxing style again?" she asked. Ans. "rope-a-dope"
FROM THE MISS AMERICA FINALS...MISS AMERICA 2017 FOR PRESIDENT (IN 14 YEARS)? VICE-PREZ GABBY DOUGLAS???
After a professional survey of 1000 household, the Democrat
candidate figured out how to stoke interest in her
Consulting with a Republican Presidential candidate from a previous
contest, she figured it out! "Let the press think they have caught
"47 percent" don't matter because they will never vote "R" = "Basket of
Deplorables" referring to Trump supporters? (A clever
double-reverse to remind voters what Republicans think of Democrats.)
DNC ACTING CHAIR STORY AND OTHER EVENTS
This reminds me of CT Senate Democrat who admitted taking bribes but
said he just took the money and never did anything for it...a crook, but
also a liar?
ANCHORAGE DAILY NEWS IS A DEMOCRAT PAPER, FYI
POLICE OVERTIME PAID FOR UNBELIEVABLY FAST!
WILL THERE BE ANY DEBATES? How about this rally in Fairfield - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wV4FW6cKm08
We ask because that would mean that the media would actually have to
show Donald Trump - or maybe he won't participate because it is "fixed?" One-hour and fifty minutes in Fairfield.
- To tell the truth, I have noticed what appear to be word-finding
difficulties...but as a former Congressman from the Gold Coast noted,
Hillary with her "deficits" can dip into so much background experience -
hey, so what if she forgot a lot!
- As candidates
shadow-box in August. "Mr. Trump
is unfit to hold the office of the Presidency. Yes or no answer"
asks the impartial moderator as the first question in the September
debate. Second "yes or no" question: "When did candidate
stop beating significant other?" To which Mr. Trump replied,
"Did she ever?"
YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST: Lowest percentage of registered voters and lowest turnout in history in 2016.
In Washington State they have all computerized voting - http://www.sos.wa.gov/_assets/elections/SpecialAbsenteeBallotApp.pdf
The press will have everyone who matters to them
believing no one is running against Hillary. Only Trump voters will bother to vote...since they can't read
FAT CATS FIGHT TO GET ON BOARD. "WHO ME?" ASKS CHARLIE OF HIS CANDIDATE - "AM I
FAT?" DID SHE MEAN THAT REMARK
With the Presidential Election already over by August 5th, Hillary
reveals her campaign's plan...let the media do it - including the trick
of selective messaging, i.e. middle class taxes will go up in front of not white middle class audience.
LET THE GAMES OR PARODIES, OR NEWSPAPER ARTICLES BEGIN, TABLOID-STYLE.
Can you see Hillary Clinton losing? Just read the New York
Times editorials on the front page and "all the news that fits..."
Or let them begin where a career began, at the intersection of great
work and good planning, not to mention fine design: http://www.thewestonforum.com/67413/commentary-trump-has-disregard-for-civility-maturity-and-morality/
BREAKING NEWS!!! The next President of the United States of America will be...from New York!!!
BILLS COMING DUE
So what will the Lincoln Bedroom go for on AirBNB?
WE COULDN'T STAY AWAKE TO LISTEN - BUT IN RETROSPECT THESE WERE SOME THOUGHTS THAT CAME TO MIND...
HOW WILL THE CONVENTION ITSELF, NOT TO MENTION THE ELECTION, PLAY OUT? WHAT DID THE "FIRST GUY" IN WAITING SAY?
With an insider Southern Democrat on the ticket,
signal is "business as usual." Will there be protests? And
if so, who will protest and will it be as exciting as the Chicago convention? Nope.
JUDGING THE CANDIDATE BY HIS CHILDREN WORKS FOR ME
While we didn't watch much of the convention we do note that reading about it online makes it seem very exciting...
THE "I DIDN'T KNOW" DEFENSE WORKS EVERY TIME!
What is the reason former Secretary of State Clinton was not treated the
same way others have been for doing similar things? Not too good at math, either. CT Gov. Malloy leads the way over the cliff!
SPEAKING OF HOT AIR...AND PLATFORM SHOES...
ARE SOME BALLOONS ECO-FRIENDLY? REPUBLICANS STICK WITH THEIR TRADITIONAL PLATFORM POSES.
IS THERE A SIMILARITY BETWEEN THE LOCATIONS OF BOTH MAJOR PARTY CONVENTIONS?
It is funny, but the two cities hosting the Party
Conventions have a lot in common. Or at least more in common than
do the Parties they will be hosting.
- Both are central cities in their respective regions.
- Both have swanky suburbs.
a matter of my own personal interest, Cleveland has a suburb, Euclid,
that has a claim to fame as having adopted the first zoning ordinance in
- Demographics: Cleveland and Philadelphia.
I S S U E S : What are they? Will we do cartoon of these, too? You bet!!!
Democrats in Philadelphia to nominate a "filly?"
FIRST PRIZE IS ONE WEEK IN PHILADELPHIA, SECOND PRIZE IS TWO WEEKS...HEY, HOW ABOUT THOSE CLEVELAND TEAMS - THE BROWNS, THE NATIVE AMERICANS, AND THE 1% CAVALIERS!!!
PHILADELPHIA OR BUST?
So when will the movie "Mr. Murphy Goes to Washington" come out? Didn't he do a "Phily-buster?"
World coming to a fiery end? DNC got hacked by...Russians?
Rosemary Woods-like moment for Hillary campaign?
All the "K" Street hackers could find were "Wag the Dog" ideas
(September ad campaign idea "Would you want this man with his finger on
the nuclear button?")
- Congressional "no" vote only applied to medal above?
- Here is the popular gun control argument; and then PCSW was merged and reborn as a private non-profit entity.
- Cuts both ways, or
not (D.C. v. Heller)?
- Next, a case where local focus might make a difference;
- Knives and rocks kill too.
Does it make sense to think about securing the borders? Will it isolate more than protect? Or not?
HOW IS ALASKA'S ECONOMY LIKE THE GLACIER? CLICK CARTOON ABOVE FOR MORE.
Democrat Governor's Association head is Gov. Malloy - leading the charge to get out from under CT imploding economy!
Other animals involved in the Legislative process in Connecticut...
"HOW NOW BROWN COW" IS RACIST.
legislative "mule" is "strike all and replace with" - making an entirely
different bill. "Legislative rat" in Implementer from just completed Special Session. Poison news from the past.
And earlier in the Session:
And the organization chart to illustrate similarities and differences between two Parties - on local, state or national issues.
Democrats top down while GOP delegates more - does anything ever come back around?
As the pre-convention campaign moves West, we offer this cartoon...that mimics CT political scheme.

PRIMARY RESULTS STORY FROM THE FORUM

Did vote result for Weston differ from statewide picture? YOU BETCHA.
- Greenwich (T), Westport (K), Weston (T), New Canaan (K), Wilton
(T) and Darien (K) Republican Party voters differed in first choice for
