Prance, Gays, Prance!SO MANY MINCING GAYS! That dead-chimp=Obama cartoon is just one part of a rich tapestry of shitty racist/homophobic/just-plain-weird Sean Delonas’ cartoons in the New York Post. [Gawker]

Well, it’s official. Delonas is in love with McGreevey. And it’s true love, not just the wide-stance type love.

Internally valid February 18, 2009 at 3:12 pm

OMG!! There is a sheep in bed in the Foley-McGreevey love nest!

cal February 18, 2009 at 3:16 pm

Yikes. I have no snark for that. This man is just vile.

Republicans must think he’s hilarious.

Serolf Divad February 18, 2009 at 3:16 pm

I have to admit: the one where he makes fun of Heather Mills for having only one leg is hilarious… because amputees are just funny as Hell how they got themselves disfigured and how they deserve to die and all. Man, I wish I were a conservative so I could laugh like this all the time.

Sex scandal involving Delonas and a randy Kashmiri llama in 3…2…1…

Texan Bulldoggette February 18, 2009 at 3:20 pm

Why do all the cartoons of McGreevey look like our beloved Hopey?? (Seriously.)

Jukesgrrl February 18, 2009 at 3:21 pm

I tried to access his Website and apparently it’s crashed. I only hope it was due to people putting rude comments on it. All I wanted to say was, “Moran.”

SayItWithWookies February 18, 2009 at 3:22 pm

Most of those are at such a grade-school fart-joke level of humor that I’m not offended so much as mystified as to why he or any editor thinks this man has the least smidgen of talent. I’m sure he’s opposed to Welfare, but has he ever considered that that’s what he’s getting if he’s being paid to churn out this dreck?

Gopherit February 18, 2009 at 3:23 pm

I bet this guy’s cartoons feature prominently in Limbaugh’s masturbatorium.

4tehlulz February 18, 2009 at 3:25 pm

Julius Streicher approves of Mr. Delonas’s humor.

Naked Bunny with a Whip February 18, 2009 at 3:28 pm

Delonas may be a weird racist homophobe, but couldn’t be at least be an amusing weird racist homophobe?

quoth teh Raven February 18, 2009 at 3:31 pm

I’ve been waiting to get gay-married until I decide just exactly who’s marraige I want to destroy. I think I will propose tonight. Delonas’ married, right?

Tommmcatt February 18, 2009 at 3:31 pm

Look, why would you…I mean…what is he thinking…I….just…why do thy print..it’s just so obviously…

*sigh*

Never mind. It is too vast and incomprehensible to go into.

seriesoftubescleaner February 18, 2009 at 3:38 pm

Wait, so if your leg is horribly mangled and misshapen, that means your gay? Joe Theisman… say it ain’t so Joe!

peachgirl February 18, 2009 at 3:43 pm

His stuff is just like Mad Magazine except a) no fold ins and b) not funny.

SayItWithWookies February 18, 2009 at 3:51 pm

Almost forgot — Here’s something I cooked up recently that would be good advice for Delonas and his ick. I mean ilk.

TGY February 18, 2009 at 3:51 pm

A blot on the cartoon landscape. Obvs, he needs to get a visit from Bart Simpson.

Schadenfried February 18, 2009 at 3:54 pm

Okay, so “Sean” is and Irish name (Celtic/Gaelic spelling for John, I bet his dumb ass doesn’t even know that), and the last name is maybe Italian? Hey, let’s do a cartoon that makes NY Irish and Italian Americans look ignorant racists! Get Aaron McGruder on this, stat!

Schadenfried February 18, 2009 at 3:55 pm

…and why does McGreevy look like a white version of President Barry? Also.

Schadenfried February 18, 2009 at 3:56 pm

[re=246326]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Ah, beat me to it. That’s what I get for not reading all the comments.

Toomush Infermashun February 18, 2009 at 3:56 pm

Where’s that Comics Curmudgeon when we need him – I can’t find the funny in any of these. Just because you want to marry current events to politics or other current events doesn’t make it happen…. there has to be some connection, transference, crossover…even drinking won’t connect these isolated pieces of shit… can anybody suggest some harder drugs.?.. I know acid or ecstasy won’t work, but I haven’t really kept up with what’s out there…

SayItWithWookies February 18, 2009 at 3:57 pm

[re=246371]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Dammit.

I like Elayne Boosler’s old take on NY Post: “It’s LIKE a newspaper … Actually, people BUY Hustler to have something to hide the New York Post in on the way home.”

CorkPopper February 18, 2009 at 4:30 pm

I used to have a coworker who thought this guy was hilarious and would stick the most offensive cartoons up in his cube. His name was Sal and he wore a pinky ring. That probably tells you most of what you need to know about this jackass and his fans.

Mustang February 18, 2009 at 4:47 pm

It’s hard to be conservative and funny at the same time. As a matter of fact, most conservatives ARE conservatives because they have no sense of humor. No one likes them because they’re boring, so they get mean and hateful. They are expecially sad when they try to be satirical.

chascates February 18, 2009 at 4:47 pm

This is for the crowd that isn’t high brow enough to listen to Limbaugh and are convinced George Will is gay because he uses such big words and quotes and stuff.

grevillea February 18, 2009 at 4:51 pm

What, no dirty hippies or weeping Lady Libertys?

Thegreatbacon February 18, 2009 at 4:59 pm

[re=246454]Mustang[/re]: Their favorite movie is “The Lives of Others.” They view themselves as the serious hard-working outsiders who are constantly putdown and abused. They trudge home from work to see everyone else having a wild party that they weren’t invited to because they had to work and keep everything from crashing around our oblivious heads. Their only emotion is indignation. You cannot tell a joke from an indignant posture without coming across as an angry bitter. This is their sad fantasy existence. When they watch the Stasi bureaucrat in “The Lives of Others” spying on the smart, creative people of East Germany, they see themselves. They know the pain of envy — it is all they know.

Ok, having reviewed this shitheads portfolio, I have to concede that he probably *did* mean the monkey to stand for Obama.

Where’s the Wicked Witch of the West when you need her? She could avenge everyone at once: Obama, monkeys, gays… And there’s no danger of Delonas defeating her with a bucket of water, because it’s obvious he’s the type to douse himself in ever stinkier cologne instead to showering.

Campbell Brown February 18, 2009 at 5:24 pm

Guess who just landed themselves a spot on the 2012 GOP ticket?

Atheist Nun February 18, 2009 at 5:44 pm

I think the drugs are taking too long knocking my IQ level down far enough to appreciate his… er… “work.” Perhaps I shall look into an ice-pick lobotomy as a quicker route to “slobbering imbecile.”

masterdebater February 18, 2009 at 5:54 pm

Sure he paints him in a racist or homophobic way, but it is just so hard for the republicans to figure out how to portray him. (Hint: A baret)

Jollity February 18, 2009 at 6:36 pm

[re=246326]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: [re=246377]Schadenfried[/re]: If one has to put labels on everyone so that readers can tell one ordinary-looking politician from another, one is perhaps not the most talented of cartoonists.

Although compared to some people (there’s a chap called Liccar who draws the most hideous cartoons for some publication or another) he’s not the worst of the bunch by a long shot.

Like opening a window when your dog farts, here’s some Luckoviches to make us all feel better:

So,the Heather Mills toon….I have to ask myself, when Ms. Mills spoke to this particular arms dealer (presumably over the phone, thus the ensuing confusion), did she ask him if he sold legs? Prosethetic limbs, maybe? It’s just not adding up to true honest irony. Good thing he only draws funnies for folks who never think twice.
And now for something really funny…
Two condoms are walking down the street when they pass in front of a gay bar.
One condom turns to the other and says, “Hey, Bob, wanna go in and get shit-faced?”

nosnikreplliw February 18, 2009 at 7:44 pm

i think that shit’s 110% funny.

Schadenfried February 18, 2009 at 10:30 pm

He apparently learned to draw tracing the worst of Cracked Magazine.

I think like malard filmore or whatever that token right wing one always was on my paper, I can’t imagine he’s trying to be funny. He’s too in touch with his inner five year old. Too bad that’s too immature for even a whiff of irony, which might rescue the subject matter since humor is out of reach.
