Cartoon: Beating the other guy to the Supreme Court punch

As a cartoonist, I face a constant balancing act. On the one hand, a good cartoon that hits the zeitgeist at the right time can allow it to go viral and spread like wildfire. On the other, sometimes going beyond the headline and taking time to consider an idea can make for a much better piece of commentary.

    For CNN it was a huge goof. For Fox News, it was just a normal news day.

    This cartoon shows Clarence Thomas actually SAYING something in the Supreme Court.  When that happens in real life, it will be the first time.  Perhaps another Justice should have been portrayed making the comment.
