Racism – No Way! Sexism – YAAAYYYYY!

Here’s the cartoon I came up with for my weekly strip in The Independent.

Below is the text for the cartoon:

President Elect, Barack Obama named Lawrence Summers director of the National Economic Council.

Recently, Summers, was forced to resign as President of Harvard after suggesting that biological differences may be the reason for the few women in top science and math jobs.

In an election year that led many to observe that racism was no longer acceptable, but sexism was very much alive, this has lead many women to ask…

Would Obama have appointed Summers if he’d suggested biological differences as a reason for the few African Americans in top science and math jobs?

Obama And Lawrence Summers

Gosh. What if Lawrence Summers had been forced to resign from Harvard University for suggesting that biological differences may be the reason for the few African Americans in top science and math jobs? Would Obama still have given him a place on his economic team? I just can’t help wondering. Well, there’s a subject for this week’s cartoon! 

(As I am sure you know, Lawrence Summers was forced to resign after suggesting that biological differences may be the reason for the few women in top science and math jobs.)

Lawrence Summers Is Back!

2018-05-12T00:47:52+00:00

Apparently Obama is considering appointing Summers to some cabinet post. Oy! Well since I’ve been rebuilding my blog, I had to repost my original reverie on dear Larry. So, scroll down for my “Summery” of the jerk.

Note To Lawrence Summers

2018-05-12T00:47:53+00:00

Note to Lawrence Summers, ex-president of Harvard University, who was forced to resign after suggesting that biological differences may be the reason for the few women in top science and math jobs: the top prize winner of this year’s Intel Science Contest is a young woman. Pow! Boff! Zing! Oh, and Larry, the third prize, that went to another young woman too. Sayonara Larry!

Who Should We Bailout?

2018-05-12T00:47:53+00:00

I’ve been giving a lot of thought to who should be getting the booty from this humongous bailout package we Americans are paying for. So here’s this week’s cartoon:

Below is the text for the cartoon:

Last week President Bush told Americans an immediate bailout of investment banks was necessary to stave off a total economic implosion.
This week Obama chimed in saying an immediate bailout of the auto industry was necessary to stave off a total economic implosion.
Maybe what we really need is a cartoonist bailout. We’re gonna need some laughs in the next few months! Do you mind if I take a swing at that piñata?

Eliot Spitzer Gets Off.

2018-05-12T00:47:53+00:00

Well, here’s this week’s cartoon. I’ll probably add a few more things shortly. When I first heard the news that Spitzer was “getting off,” without any criminal charges, I couldn’t stop laughing. I think I could have gotten 10 cartoons out of the story, even though I only needed one, to meet this week’s deadline.

Below is the the cartoon text:

Santa may care who’s naughty or nice, but apparently, our federal prosecutors don’t! They’ve decided former Governor Eliot Spitzer will not face criminal charges for patronizing a high-priced prostitution ring, just like the ones he aggressively prosecuted when he was in office.
Well, how nice for the Spitzer family. This news comes just in time for the holidays!
With his habit of visiting $5,500 an hour prostitutes, it didn’t take Spitzer long to ring up an $80,000 bill. Gee, we hope he has something left to buy Christmas presents with!
