The Cartoonist Studio Editorial Cartoon Contest continues and I made it to week THREE! Thanks to all for voting. Click the image above or here to go to the voting. You should do a search of “Bearman” and my cartoon will come up front and center and then vote. Some people were clicking the link and then accidentally voting on the first thing that popped up. Unfortunately no way to direct link to my cartoon. Again, as long as I stay in the contest, there will be two editorial cartoons a week to vote on – Mondays and Thursdays. Oh and you can vote multiple times in each round if you want (resets every six hours) until EOD Saturday.
Today’s editorial cartoon was inspired by our President Barack Obama. Seems a few weeks back the President’s staff came up with a genius way to raise funds for his reelection campaign. He started a gift registry on his site.
Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?
Let your friends know how important this election is to you—register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift. It’s a great way to support the President on your big day. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.
So yes, a donation goes further than a gravy bowl….unless of course you need to serve gravy. So if you are rich enough will the President officiate at your wedding too assuming you drop enough cash? I am sure there are some billionaires out there would pay several million for that chance.
On a separate note, I had the fortune of scoring some great tickets to the Opening Ceremony of the World Choir Games held in Cincinnati and for the first time in it’s seven year existence, held in the United States. Very enjoyable experience but I was a little disappointed in the choice of music. They had the world renowned Cincinnati Pops and the Cincinnati May Festival star in the last half of the show after all the formality and speeches were done. It was indeed a great concert but it seemed like just another July 4 (Independence Day in the US) Concert that I have seen before. I would have preferred they use the choir groups from multiple countries to highlight some of the different types of choral music that we could be exposed to over the next 10 days of competition. But my hat still goes off to the organizers as overall it looks like a well thought out competition and I need to find some time to get to some of the many competitions each day.
I’m surprised Obama didn’t say, “Don’t forget to add me to your will.”
Later…depends on how he is doing in the money raising.
The dead have fewer expenses.
Not if you seen how much it costs these days for a funeral.
You leave those costs to your children…
I love this one!
Officiating with/from a book? Man, he’s doing this one old-school. Is TOTUS broken?
Everyone uses the book. I think it has a hidden compartment with booze
As long as there are politicians you will never run out of material. Good one.
Well then I guess i have to thank them for something
OKAY!! I did. 🙂 Been away from the blogosphere. Nice to see you and the gang are still here.
You did what? Donated to Obama? Voted for me? Started a Wedding Registry? Does Rip know?
All he’s done is campaign, golf, vacation and campaign. Oh and blame everything that’s wrong on Bush. Let’s not forget that.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
One thing I have to give Bush credit for. After 9/11 he didn’t play golf anymore.
And is the one in the bridal gown perhaps a TG or a drag queen as well? “She” looks a little masculine to me.
haha Shut it. All my women look like men in drag.
Telling me 🙂
And s/he is marrying Darren Stevens.
YAY you !!!!!!!!! I voted for you like 5 times – i think so far !
so stop with The Canadian Jokes !!!!!!!! lol
Watch it mister …..:) loll
Cat do I have to teach you Canadian history..haha
You do know we have quietly taken over a lot of the entertainment industry, though. And are subliminally influencing you. . .
The land of Shatner and Mike Meyers
We will subdue you with second rate comedies!
I think the “men in drag” look comes more from the boobs being hiked up almost to their chins. ;`)
I can’t believe someone put a wedding registry on his site. So weird! lol
Maybe they are just perky
Will people actually do this? Crazy.
Bet I can find someone who did
And if you don’t like politicians, you can put me on your registry instead.
And if you don’t like varmits…you can put me on your registry.
Most people like cute varmints.
Ones that don’t pee on the floor.
I was only marking my territory.
Or chew on your shoes.
Hard to find ones that don’t do one or the other
I just had to click on the link, to make sure you weren’t joking. And you’re not joking! Even though I held my nose and voted for McCain in 2008, I had been very pleased with Obama’s decisions–until this year. Now he’s just doing/endorsing one crazy thing after another. It’s almost as if he doesn’t want to get re-elected. Still, I plan to hold my nose and vote for him this year–with the economy in the pathetic condition it’s in, electing a Republican would be jumping from the frying pan into the fire.
By the way, the groom in the cartoon looks just like Dick York, the first “Darren Stevens” on “Bewitched”–but the bride is no “Samantha”!
haha…you all have made it clear that you only like me to draw hot women.
I think we all tend to hold our nose a bunch when voting in any race.
When I got married Obama was giving speeches at democratic conventions… okay, maybe those were just singular.
Remember how great and non partisan that speech was?
I don’t remember the speech much. I know my republican boss loved the speech.
I remember John Edwards saying he wished he could give all the supporters a hug… which actually turned out to be kind of true.
Well not as many as Clinton “hugged”
Seven degrees of separation between Church and State.
…or maybe 1/2
I’d get a second wedding if I could get it officiated at the White House. I may even invite my wife. 🙂
Maybe they will rent out the west wing for private functions. I know I would if I were president
As long as the rental was President free…
For the right price as President I wouldn’t crash
I want Bearman to officiate on my third wedding.
Sign me up. I just need $250, travel expenses and an online course in officiating weddings
Oh man! Who’d do that?! What a racket!
Got my vote in for ya, Bearman! 🙂
I see Obama still hasn’t found his TOTUS.
What is the first “T”?
I’d rather a gravy bowl. We have one but another would give us the opportunity to have a His & Hers set. Maybe people could donate excess wedding presents. Everyone gets too many toasters. Pass them on to the White House kitchen.
How about a huge american garage sale on the White House lawn?
That’d work. I wonder if there’ll be any old Monica Lewinsky stuff for sale…
Just some stained dresses
Heh, that’s freaking hilarious. Love Obama’s little smile. Good luck with the competition!
Thanks on both counts
I love the look on the groom’s face; you have to wonder what thought is going through his mind.
“Heh heh…I got MY candidate to perform the ceremony!”
Oh yeah baby….suck it my friends who got married on a private island. This totally beats that.
American presidents are just….strange.
