Cartoon
(Daryl Cagle illustration / caglecartoons.com)

Republicans seem to be tone deaf about how they sound when they dismiss women’s sexual assault claims.

“Tone deaf” and how things “sound” don’t translate well into editorial cartoons, which are all about how things look, so I thought the GOP elephants groping the justice statue character made the same point visually.

The descriptions of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged high school and college offenses have been pretty graphic, but the bar for how graphic a cartoonist can go in editorial cartoons in America is not set very low, so I’ll be interested to see if news organizations will print cartoon elephants grabbing Justice’s boobies. I’ll know soon!
