Today's David Horsey Cartoon Is Funny
That shouldn't be news, but
it is. At one time, I enjoyed most Horsey cartoons, even when I disagreed with them. But
the quality of his cartoons has been declining in recent years, enough so that he even received one of the
big reprimands a few years
Now, I am tempted to beat on Horsey some more, and I suspect at least a few of you are,
too. But let's be positive. Instead of criticizing the quality of his recent output,
let's suggest some cartoons we'd like to see. For instance, wouldn't it be fun to see a
Cantwell-Gregoire cartoon with the first bemoaning high gas prices, and the second bragging about higher
gas taxes? I am sure many of you can think of even better ideas. And I am sure Horsey will
be grateful for our help. (Well, pretty sure.)
(And, of course, if Eric Devericks wants to use these ideas, that would be fine, too.)

1. I agree. I've always liked Horsey's drawing style but his political messages have been getting more and more loonie left as time goes by. It's like he's getting his ideas from moveon.org or Michael Moore.
2. Why even bother with Horsey. His talent is inferior. Go to www.coxandforkum.com to read and see political cartoons with real talent.
Actually there are a lot of good cartoons linked on JewishWorldReview too.
One is cox & Forkum.
It's obvious that Horseface got his "inspiration" from MAD magazine, but has never been able to reach that lofty goal.
I'd rather read Boondocks - at least they're upfront about their racism and lack of objectivity.....
5. I'd rather see cartoons in MAD magazine. They are funnier and generally more intelligent..
