  1. I decided to just look at the art and ignore the text this Friday – and with nice results! The look on McC and the moose actually did make me laugh. I’ll just pretend the words are funny, and not check back here so as to not have my fun ruined.

  2. The moose with the hole in its forehead is indeed amusing.

  3. First they came for the antlered quadropeds…

  4. Leave Hillary out of this, joe.

  5. Chip Bok is the NY Mets of cartooning.

  6. The Mets are in first place.

  7. Ignore this year and you get my point.

  8. It does, however, underscore the point that her detractors end up underestimating her to their own peril. Early on, it seems like she looks like a librarian but campaigns like a cage fighter. It’s a heck of a disconnect for people.

  9. Flight Case?

  10. Warren,

    Probably refers to when Palin sold off the tax-payer-expense jet the former governor bought as an extravagance.

  11. Ah, yes. Thank you. Still not funny.

    galthran makes a good point. This isn’t a bad panel, it just has a bad caption. Let’s have a recaption contest.

    “Excellent. Now just stick a bible in her hand and it will be perfect.”

  12. Does the hockey mom’s daughter score more than she does? Maybe.

  13. The “Flight Case” had me stumped, too.

    Maybe the feds can lease a de Havilland for Ms Palin to jump puddles in.

    “Vice President’s Beaver headed to town- film at eleven.”

  14. Evidently, the hockey mom isn’t too good at playing goalie.

  15. VM –

    Whatsamatta U?
    A relative of yours?

  16. The hockey mom’s daughter scored with a hockey player. Question: Would this pregnancy have happened if hockey mom hadn’t pushed thru a hockey rink subsidy??

  17. Whatsamatta U?

    I didn’t go there. I graduated from the watchmaker’s institute (tick-tock tech). The two schools had quite a rivalry going.

  18. The “Flight Case” bit, if I recall correctly, was in response to a comment she made somewhere about being able to pack for the campaign trail in basically one suitcase…

  19. If McCain-Palin wins, I predict that they will inspire massive amounts of Oval-Office themed porn.

  20. massive amounts of Oval-Office themed porn.

    It would give a new meaning to the term “government pork”

  21. Someone please tellme why she’s wearing on the left hip with the grip facing back… is she left-handed? Or is Bok just an idiot?

  22. PS — the latter question above is in jest, not trolling. I love Bok’s work and I’m sure this was just a silly error (or Palin really IS a southpaw! :p)

  23. Someone please tellme why she’s wearing on the left hip with the grip facing back…

    Poetic license

  24. Caption contest!

    1. “No Mr. Senator, I’m not going to ask her why she gave her kids stupid names.”

    2. “It’s called identity politics, sir.”

    3. “Yes, I’m sure she will help you tie your shoes too.”

  25. Someone please tellme why she’s wearing on the left hip with the grip facing back

    Why don’t you assume there’s one on her right hip too. She’s a two fisted gun slinging mom of a VP.

  26. madmikefisk,

    It does, however, underscore the point that her detractors end up underestimating her to their own peril.

    Sure, but her speech also apparently energized the Democratic base, if the $10 million the Obama campaign garnered following it is any indication. So both sides could fumble by underestimating.

  27. Palin could very well become our first lactating vice president.

    If you don’t count Al Gore.

  28. There was a short-lived comedy show (10 or so years ago) where the lead comic played Bill Clinton breast-feeding a puppy.

  29. Damn, and ed for a two-fer!

  30. Seward: Point taken. That being said, it doesn’t take all that many people to get to $10 million. The bigger question will be how the campaign itself responds, and that we’ll see in the next couple of weeks.

  31. kinnath,

    That was the Dana Carvey Show. And of course it was short-lived–it had a terrible writing staff: Steve Carrell, Stephen Colbert, Louis CK, Robert Smigel, Charlie Kaufmann, Dave Chappelle.

  32. 3. “Yes, I’m sure she will help you tie your shoes too.”

    Hahaha

  33. That was the Dana Carvey Show. And of course it was short-lived–it had a terrible writing staff: Steve Carrell, Stephen Colbert, Louis CK, Robert Smigel, Charlie Kaufmann, Dave Chappelle.

    Mountain Dew was a prominent sponser on one of the first few shows. The show ran a sketch with Dana Carvey sitting with a tall glass of MD (flat with no ice) smiling and asking “what does this look like?”. The connotation that it was a glass of warm piss was not hard to infer. Eventually Dana says that’s right, it’s a glass of liquid sunshine.

    You don’t survive long when you trash your sponsors on the air.

  34. Caption:
    “Where was that gun when Bristol was getting knocked up?”

    Dello-ism:

    One simple rule for dating my teenaged daughter: I have a gun and 100 acres.

  35. One simple rule for dating my teenaged daughter: I have a gun and 100 acres.

    Good for you. I have a “gun” and a large back seat. Don’t wait up for us.

  36. Caption:

    “Next she changes my diaper.”

    …but it’s actually baby trig saying that, and he is hanging from the ceiling like a spider. McCain is spooked by this. Oh, and in thick letters it says ‘ohhh’ and McCain is thinking, where is Bristol, who would be drawn as a squid. Get to work Bok!

  37. At least Chip threw something in.

    RNC, Reason: Suck… Less!

  38. “No Mr. Senator, I’m not going to ask her why she gave her kids stupid names.”

    I don’t know for sure, but seeing her husband is of native alaskan heritage, maybe the name comes from there?

  39. Chip Bok is the NY Mets of cartooning.

    That would imply that he is intermittent successful. As I see it, Chip Bok is more the Washington Generals of cartooning.
