The Bookworm Beat: August 22, 2014 illustrated edition — the best one ever

My friend Caped Crusader, who has a real knack for finding pictures that are worth their weight in thousands of words, worked overtime the last couple of days, and sent me an amazing batch of cartoons and posters taking on the world today. Consider this your “weekend funnies” edition.

To begin with, there’s something about Leftism that induces amnesia:

Ferguson amnesia

Obama amnesia

Obama’s golf game makes irresistible fodder, not only for people who have noticed that he’s checking out of governing, but for political cartoonists who need a good image to highlight that checking out. Now all we need to have happen is for a killer rabbit to wander across the golf course. (And wouldn’t it be great if it had the name tag “Isis” hanging around its neck?)

Standing in my line

If I had a son

Headlines today

ISIS hiding on the golf course

That's where I left my putter

Presidents during a crisis

A few pointed pictures say a lot more about the right to bear arms than even one of my longest essays would:

Sexy women

gun owners and self defense

Military style guns

Guns in schools

Who we defend with guns

Perhaps because race is about color, and color is a visual thing, posters also tend to expose the worst excesses of the Left and race:

white people are white

The death of African Americans

It’s also easy to use a few pictures or a punchy quotation to expose all the fallacies of the Leftist approach to the economy and to reveal the wisdom of the conservative approach:

Democrat promises and deliveries

Essential notions of society

Bono supports the free market

I could (and will) write a whole essay about the wonders of the internet and pictures when it comes to understanding radical Islam and those who do (and those who won’t) stand against her:

Jews do not threaten Muslims

Peace through Hope strategy

Don't stand in the Jews way

Islamofascists want to kill you

And finally, we round out our image gallery with random wisdom about Obama the lying liar, illegal immigration, the lack of wisdom in today’s world, and rules for living smart:

No one trusts Obama

Good immigrants and bad immigrants

World IQ over time

It's called whining

Robert Louis Stevenson on the cards of life

    and it hardly need be added that a great part of these enactments were worse than worthless because they were made hastily and without due consideration, though not always, perhaps, without what lawyers call a consideration.

    If only some one with poster skills could put a picture to David Burge’s tweets….

    If you’re not reading David Burge’s tweets, you’re missing genius.

    January: “ISIS is a JV team.”
    Yesterday: “ISIS is the worst threat ever.”

    I’m not saying that Barack Obama is out of touch. I’m just saying he thinks a bunker buster is a type of golf club.

    I’m not saying Obama is out of touch. I’m just saying he thinks domestic policy is why you might fire the maid.

    I’m not saying Obama is out of touch. I’m just saying he thinks the Muslim Brotherhood are then guys he used to hang out with when he wasn’t with the choom gang.

    I’m not saying Obama is out of touch. I’m just saying he thinks “a beheading” is what happens when an A list actress gets old.

    I’m not saying Obama is out of touch. I’m just saying he thinks ISIL is a gangsta rapper.

    I’m not saying Obama is out of touch. I’m just saying he thought John Kerry would be a good secretary of state. Just sayin’.
