The Deciderer's last 1000 days

If our country lasts that long....

Saturday, April 01, 2006

Hi, Taylor!

I'd like to offer you something to complement the great writing and analysis that we've come to expect from you, and now from your guest bloggers as well.

I won't even try to compete in your category. While I've been blogging regularly over the last year or so on both politics and simple living, I've found that I most enjoy using satire, usually with graphics. Undoubtedly, this comes out of my lifelong passion for political cartooning, and using this medium predates my blogging.

You've used satire/graphics sporadically, but typically as an accompaniment to serious writing. Have you considered adding this voice as a regular feature on its own?

Following are some samples of previous blog posts and additional related graphics. I value your thoughts.

My president visited New Orleans and all I got was a lousy t-shirt


George W and friends and family are dropped into the middle of a flooded city with no money and no food and no credit cards and no vehicle and no identification and no outside communications and no change of shoes or finely-tailored suits.

Nobody knows who they are.... and nobody cares!


Watch the fun this fall, Wednesday nights on CBS.

First Annual Pentagon-athon


$500 billion just doesn't go as far as it used to. Anybody who has to balance a family budget or meet a weekly payroll knows this. Well, we at The Pentagon are subject to these same terrorist economic forces, even in the best of times.
