Exxon Commercial: This Rancid Sludge Won’t Spew Everywhere All by Itself

April 12th, 2013 | by Rhonda Winter

Rachel Maddow highlighted a satirical commercial featuring Exxon that is especially funny, because the bizarre scenario that it depicts is actually strangely close to reality. Comedian Andy Cobb is presented as a spokesperson for the corporate oil giant's newest method of petroleum delivery, flooding your neighborhood streets and lawns directly with their viscous toxic crude

February 27th, 2013 | by Rhonda Winter

Mark Fiore is an amazingly insightful Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist and creator of genius animated political videos. Whether his subject is gun control or global warming, Fiore's short comic films encapsulate and convey the brutal truth with concise humor and informed intelligence; his most recent biting animation shines a brilliant light upon the quagmire of corruption that has engulfed the resigning pope and the Catholic Church

Energy Secretary Steven Chu will Not Deny Love Affair with Solar Panel

February 8th, 2013 | by Rhonda Winter

"I just want everyone to know that my decision not to serve a second term as Energy Secretary has absolutely nothing to do with the allegations made in this week’s edition of the Onion. While I’m not going to confirm or deny the charges specifically, I will say that clean, renewable solar power is a growing source of U.S. jobs and is becoming more and more affordable, so it’s no surprise that lots of Americans are falling in love with solar."

One of my favorite political cartoonists, Matt Bors, has just launched a Kickstarter project to help fund the publication of his first collection of work, entitled "Life Begins at Incorporation". The full color 225 page collection will group the best of his comics together with humorous essays on a wide variety of topics, ranging from the 1% doctrine and terror drones, to Afghanistan and inept politicians confused and befuddled by mysterious lady parts

Romney’s Binders Full of Women Gaffe Spawns New Internet Meme

October 17th, 2012 | by Rhonda Winter

During last night's debate, while Mitt Romney was decisively not answering a question about the disparity in pay equity for women, the former governor stuck his gold-plated foot directly into his mouth once again. As he rambled on, the clueless plutocrat patronizingly quipped that when he was in office he was brought "binders full of women". Before the presidential debate was even over, another new internet meme had been born

Surreal Bad Lip Reading Video Captures Essence of Political Debate Absurdity

October 12th, 2012 | by Rhonda Winter

So much of the language in political debates just sounds like nonsense bloviating. Many candidates repeatedly do not even attempt to answer questions, instead spewing only meaningless phrases and empty irrelevant soundbites. For me, the most bizarrely accurate analysis of the last presidential debate was provided by Bad Lip Reading. Their nonsensical imagined debate script somehow perfectly captures the truly absurd essence of contrived election campaign theater

The sweltering dog days of summer are upon us, and canines seem to have even invaded the presidential campaign. Dogs Against Romney released this hilarious image of some furry creatures enthusiastically searching for Mitt Romney's elusive tax returns. The political group was created in response to Romney tying the family's Irish Setter to the roof of their car for the duration of a twelve-hour international road trip

My Fond Memories of Mr. Healthy Penis

April 3rd, 2012 | by Rhonda Winter

Back in the nineties in several major metropolitan cities, Mr. Healthy Penis frequented most of the popular queer bars and watering holes. The public health outreach campaign successfully utilized humor to help educate the populace at large. Clear information and free refrigerator magnets were distributed; but my favorite aspect of the effort was a person in a hilarious seven-foot Healthy Penis costume, who was by far the best part of the syphilis education program

Stephen Colbert Exposes U.S. Election Dysfunction by Running for President

January 13th, 2012 | by Rhonda Winter

South Carolina native and comedian, Stephen Colbert, announced on his program last night that he might just run for president. Recent polls already show Colbert with 5% support, placing ahead of several candidates who have actually been actively campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination in the state

“Matriarch of Mayhem” Elizabeth Warren, Secret Revolutionary Leader?

October 28th, 2011 | by Rhonda Winter

Elizabeth Warren is a fiercely intelligent, compassionate and incredibly competent woman, who is very likely to become the next senator from Massachusetts. This soon to be reality is freaking Republicans out so much that they seem to have lost touch with reality. They have just created a hilarious attack ad, complete with scary menacing music, attempting to smear Warren. The ad is so inadvertently funny, that I have difficulty believing that it is really a legitimate commercial, and not just some kind of satirical prank

Capitalism isn’t Working, and Other Issues to Ponder

September 30th, 2011 | by Rhonda Winter

In the last couple of days I have come across quite a number of very powerful, funny and thought-provoking graphics about a variety of important issues. Often complicated difficult concepts can be conveyed more succinctly and effectively with a strong image and just a few well chosen words; such is the strength of well executed graphic design. Some of these visual images deal with everything from sustainable transportation and social control, to starvation and the impending death of capitalism
