In light of current events, this one seems worth reposting:

With apologies to ABC, legendary vocalist Jack Sheldon, and my childhood

If you didn't grow up in the '70s watching Schoolhouse Rock on Saturday mornings, first watch this:

Batton Lash is a nice man and a great cartoonist

Check out his interview over at Tom Spurgeon's Comics Reporter. I am mentioned tangentially.

The great Batton Lash does it again (with a little help from yours truly). After the jump:

If you enjoyed this cartoon, you're a r-- Well, you know.

Previous Batton fun here, here, and here. And check out his fine comicky goodness at exhibitapress.com!

P.S. Feel free to post this on your own blog, but please don't hotlink it.

P.P.S. I totally forgot: Happy Birthday, Batton!

P.P.P.S. "I'm not quite sure if this is just crass or racist or both." Well, it's about Obama's own public statements. So of course it's crass! And it's drawn to resemble him. So of course it's racist!

Mocking false accusations of racism is racist

The great Batton Lash looks at ATTYNSTSAO (All The Things You're Not Supposed To Say About Obama). The cartoon's a little wider than my blog margins, so it's after the jump:

If you think there should be a fourth panel where Obama says something to try to stop it, you must know something the rest of us don't.

Previous Batton: Hope!

P.S. If you post this cartoon, please link to Batton's site, exhibitapress.com. He does some cool comics.

And now, a quick word from a gentleman and a scholar

Hi Jim-

I've been enjoying your blog- - a bloody relief this crazed election season. I especially like your take on those obnoxious "hope" and "change" posters. You've inspired me to share with you the one Hope I'd like to see again!

Best,

Batton Lash
