Happy Depression Day!
Oh here is a cheery “hump day” cartoon for your New Depression, courtesy of Jeff Danziger. [DANZIGER CARTOONS]

  1. Yup. We have the highest average standard of living in the same way you can put one hand in boiling water, and one hand in liquid nitrogen and, on average, be comfortable.

  2. Cheer up, I have it on good authority that is all just a plan by Louis and Billy Ray to corner the frozen concentrated orange juice market. Any second now the markets will turn around and shoot up. Wait for it… wait for it…

  3. I have no idea what’s going on right now. A bunch of people I don’t recognize in what appears to be a 60’s era European car. Maybe the car has Truck Nutz…

  4. Ingrates — we should be on our knees thanking the rich for the immense character-building opportunity that they’ve made for us over the next ten or so years. After subsisting on potato skins and sawdust we’ll get to march off to war and be the next Greatest Generation — huzzah!

  5. I think it’s Cheney Driving the US off a cliff, taking Chimpy (in flight-suit mode), McCain & Palin with him. They all look Asiatic is because they all wanted to resemble our former Chinese overlords before the world economy imploded. The dog could be a reference to religion (Ya know…. dog spelled backwards…)

    All hail our new Canadian overlords, and lookin’ forward to the free health care and cheap maple syrup, eh?

  6. Everything sucks in America including the new Wonkette, now with 100% more depression. I can get the same feelings of hopelessness and despair by actually paying attention to my dead-end job and life, thank you very much.

  7. Is that supposed to be Palin or a Chinese overlord in the left backseat? Actually, everyone in the backseat looks vaguely Asian. And Cheney looks like Ed McMahon.

    You know what, a cartoon with Ed McMahon (a la Publishers Clearinghouse) at the wheel and China in the backseat would probably make too much sense.

  8. Political cartooning has gone into the toilet since the Murdoch Brigades starting buying papers and hiring fascist editors. The alternative weeklies should have taken up the slack, but they were a bunch of fatcats, too, back when they were worth something (before craigslist sprang and they were too greedy to respond). It was once a noble profession.
