That one is fucking awesome just for the art in the final panel.
No, it's awesome for being so demented.
A buff male GOP symbol raped/impregnated by a retarded looking donkey....oh..I give up.
It's a sequel to:
...which was a parody of Mike S. Miller's "Right Left Center" comics, which he did after getting fired from DC for being a rampant and public homophobe on their official messageboards. Well that, and falling for pyramid scheme and trying to foist them on his readers?
The cartoon 'breasts with smiley face at the bottom? RLC has a half-japanese, Hawaiian-raised female character whose sole purpose was eye-candy. What name did half-Japanese, Hawaiian-raised Mike give her? Mika.
The PERFECT example against the "government built the infrastructure" argument: a United States veteran.
I like this one :D
If there's one thing the Statue of Liberty hates it's democratically elected leaders voted in by the majority in free elections!
Ramirez has not stopped crying! :D DELICIOUS! Eat it you fucking partisan hack!
Someone should send him a copy of Brother Ali's new record.
I don't agree with his message and he seems to be buying into ridiculous caricatures of what a second term for Obama means. However, based on his last two (unmodified) comics, I wouldn't call him a hack at all. He seems like a good cartoonist just inside the conservative bubble (ie, Fox News, etc).
Well, he has a hacky message, IE anything the Right Wing Blogosphere has glommed onto today repeatedly, over and over. Without regard for facts. So, in that manner, he's very much a hack. His last cartoon's message is "The guy elected by the people ushers in the death of America" aaah ahh ahh*hack hack*.
He's so hacky other cartoonists mock him:
As for his art?
Time spent on the bus benches: 30-40 minutes. Time spent on Rosa Parks: 5-10 minutes (giving up at the face) time spent on Wombama: 1-5 seconds
Look at this fucking thing. LOOK AT IT. Identify any single person in that picture besides Wormbama. DO IT
Now look at the loving detail on this helicopter
What the fuck is that???
Do you want this to stop?? DO YOU??
Then don't ever EVER
SAY ANYTHING NICE
ABOUT THIS GOD DAMN
Bludgeoning comic strips, used in anger.
The most recent ones (the hands of Uncle Sam and the half mast flag) I actually thought elegantly conveyed their point, even if I disagreed with it.
But I stand corrected by his body of work.
Despite getting the joke, it still took me two times seeing this to realize that that's supposed to be Rosa Parks. It looks like Che.
If their point was 'aaablooooo aaablooooooo aaaaabloooooooo D; D; D; ' then I agree 100%.

3/33...carry the six...did i do the math wrong? a nine percent marginal tax rate on the $30,000 to $60,000 bracket? fuck, sign me up now.
WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN
biden made a big deal about the decision by obama to do the raid, calling it one of the gutsiest. the risky, non-guaranteed of success, unauthorized raid in a friendly foreign country decision. the decision obama said he would make back in the debates with mccain, the one mccain said he would not do.
this guy is saying anyone would have done the same because it was totally obvious that it would succeed and they were sure osama was actually there (and not 70% sure as reported) and the political fallout and chance of a failure costing re-election would not be a factor at all in anybody's mind. after all, no democratic president had ever suffered at the hands of a botched military raid.
That was also the day we learned that Joe Biden was a hammerhead shark.
Really? The guy who turns in a generic and probably reused picture of a flag at half mast with the oh-so-clever caption "Mourning in America," a pun that would amuse no one, is "not a hack at all?" And that's leaving out Otterloop's roundup of Ramirez's greatest hits.
Is your intent to argue about that specific comic or to just get your punches in?
Can't it be both?
And, once again:
Can you explain that one to me like I'm 12? I'm not getting it.
Killing Osama was an easy call and anyone would have made it so no one should credit Obama with having done it except that he shouldn't have made it and it was a bad call and Obama shouldn't have done it and now he's upset people in the mideast.
I can't explain why he's hanging out with Castro, Kim Jong Un et at al.
But at least he's not a hack at drawing - all four foreign leaders are instantly recognizeable without labels and from a slightly unusual angle. Well done.
Obama is only recognizable, because he's standing on The Presidents Seal, which is one bigass label. And of course the point he making is really obscure and from a very unusual angle... but I'll give, that Ramirez can draw. That flag was also good - he should consider doing Hallmark cards instead.
I don't recognize the dude in red, but I can tell who the other three are supposed to be.
(and he's not even that much of a household name here... only Americans worry about him)
Oh, okay. I've heard of him but I don't think I've seen a picture of him before (well, until Googling just now).
It's probably a reference to Obama's willingness to talk to foreign leaders. There was that ridiculous criticism of unconditional talks that went around on the right awhile ago.
God this one is awesome. Broken tea pot, dazed stars and a black eye, dixieland style hat, reading a basics book on non-whites.. other than some kind of smarm about the GOP's disdain for women it really has everything. Bring out the FOREVER ALONE meme, says I.
Not really. Castro and Il are easy caricatures, and Ahmadinejad looks like fat Abraham Lincoln. Chavez looks like Paul Bunyan. It doesn't help that all of them are obese when none of them are in real life. You can only suss out all four of them because you recognize two and your brain fills in the blank based on your knowledge of who every right-wing dope considers to be the worlds' supervillains.
Nope, I disagree.
I hate everything Ramirez is saying, and his bigeared Obama is crap, but on Chavez he actually gets the face and nose quite right, and while he's not obese, he is a big boned man. Castro and Il are easy, I'll give you that. But Ahmadinejad is also spot on and there was no guessing involved. I think he's quite good at drawing when he sets his mind to it - in the bunch Otterloop posted above, some has great details (like the chopper) while others seems like fast hack jobs - this is one of his better.
But why argue about this, when we can all agree that his message, his humour and his use of symbolism sucks?
Well I'll drink to that anyway.
That second panel is the face of a woman who's breasts just lunged of their own accord.
Also mortgages are investments in the future. You take out a mortgage to afford better things than you could without one. So ummm...yeah.
Jesus Wise: fast food, booze and cigarettes. It's like you're trying to give my great-great grandmother the vapors.
In honor of Unveterans Day. Remembering the day we brought all the veterans to life and had to bury them alive to keep them from eating our brains.
"Please ignore the last three weeks I've spent complaining about people voting and who won the election fairly."~ Drawing of a cartoon duck.
Also, again, what was the last war we fought to preserve any of our freedoms?
I should watch that "Obama's America: 2016" movie and tell you about it. I'm sure it's this but unironically.
C-c-c-cigarette!! Oh my stars and garters!
Also Obama isn't giving gifts to the workers? But he's a Communist! Couldn't figure out how to show multi-millionaires not getting free stuff as a bad thing eh Wise?
We interrupt your scheduled tears with a sex scandal!
HAPPY VETERANS DAY!
I don't even...I don't...I...
THE TEARS WON'T STOP! THEY WON'T STOP OH GOD!!
Replace generic white guy with Obama
I know we're supposed to hate labels or whatever but the elephant reaching out at the top of the tower made me laugh out loud and I don't care who knows it.
(also fuck you, Day by Day)
It's a good comic, but it would be better without the "Hispanics" and "Anti-Immigrant Rhetoric" labels.
Or the NO AMNESTY sign or the GOP flag.
I'm beginning to love Day by Day. Those women in evening dresses drinking wine and making non sequiturs - it's like the guy drawing and the guy writing aren't on speaking terms. Nothing they say make any sense and there's nothing as base as an actual punchline. Dadaist commentary at its finest.
The "No Amnesty" sign is fine. That passes muster as an actual sign rather than simply a label.
You're right about the GOP flag, though.
