Talking Don Asmussen in the SF Chronicle

OK. I am making an official thread for these. I can't get enough of 'em.

And if any of you agree that this guy is just too fookin' brilliant, you can find archives of all his stuff here in the Chronicle archives.

He's in San Francisco, where there ARE no republicans. We refer to moderate democrats here as either "Republicans" or "Fascists," depending on our mood.

Yeah, but that cartoon sort of rides the fence don't it?

You really think so? I can't imagine a Bush supporter finding anything in it amusing. Seems to me pretty derisive of the administration. Maybe I'm reading into it what I expect it to be, based on knowledge of previous strips.

Ain't he though? He's like the John Stewart of the cartoon world.

He's definitely the most consistently funny political cartoonist I've seen. He also has a Sunday strip about local SF topics. All his stuff appears online at the same time as the print version. I put a link in the opening post of this thread.

Here's today's Bad Reporter:

I never got around to posting the series of these, which Asmussen did each day of the GOP convention. (They're available online -- see first post.)

Here's today's 9/15/04
