Love me some Liz! I think ALL the Dems in the house/senate should start talking back and standing up for what is right and fair FOR THE PEOPLE. There are a few but we need more. So, Go Liz!

Two-Inch Boner.....ROFLMAO Thanks for the laugh, Cat Man. Sorry, but I have trouble writing the true spelling of his last name because he is, was and ever will be a walking, talking, upright, bi-pedal DI*K.

If a Rethuglinazi, Bagger Fundy Fascist Bast**rd is speaking, especially out of both sides of his mouth (like BonerMan) THEY ARE LYING. Trust them....???? NEVER.

As usual, Cat Man, love the 'toons....they are so spot on! Now, get back to bed and get some rest!

Thanks for the clip from “Scandal”, TomCat. It was really enjoyable to see a woman candidate for the presidency lay bare the inherent sexism in politics, journalism… well, let’s say: western culture, even if it was only fictional. If this reporter had sat opposite Hillary Clinton or Elizabeth Warren he wouldn’t have come up with a line like: “Do you think you have enough experience”, that would be far too transparent.

Boy, that Boehner is so far out of it. He should have known that his videoed promise would end up on YouTube if the news showed him to say the complete opposite a few hours later. He either didn’t see that it was videoed because he refuses to wear the glasses he’s in dire need off, or he just never takes women seriously, especially not young women, or he hasn’t an inkling what social media could do to him. Probably all of the above and I hope that the combined videos of this condescending, blind-as-a-bat, narcissistic dumbass go viral.

Could we Dutch borrow Elizabeth Warren from you guys for a while? We are in urgent need of someone who tells it like it is and who keeps doing so after she came into the senate. Someone who doesn’t forget his or her principles as soon as their butt hits the red plush (as we say). She is absolutely right of course, as were you, TomCat, and most of your ‘followers’ here on Care2.

Your cartoon is criminally good today. I like the picture of the ‘old-school’ burglar, recognizable as a criminal from miles away, as is the very transparent Republican election fraud, sorry strike that, eh strategy.

More evidence that children don't matter to the GOP because they can't vote (yet)?

What the heck was that man eating???? How totally RUDE to sit there picking apart a piece of "bread"??? into his ... what? Grits? While people are asking him a question about immigration? He agreed to talk to them. He is a "public servant" not the King of the United States. He owed them his attention AND the truth about what he felt. I'd like Elizabeth Warren to get him in a room and tell him what she thinks of him ... on camera ... with Lisa Kudrow for back up.

I haven't seen the show Scandal but did watch the video from Up Worthy yesterday. I do wish that were real - that is an actual reporter and a woman running for office. Maybe in life we can not be that eloquent and witty, though some are.

Like you expect something different from Boehner? He always seems to live up to low expectation.

I think Warren, is going to be just as effective an the man that held that Senate seat for so many years.
I look forward to having her strong will and advocacy in there fighting for all of us.

Holy Snicker doodles, TC that was a tough puzzle. 4:02.

Love strong women characters and the

That puzzle was a "pane."

I find it laughable to hear Mr. Orange even utter the word "principles". I don't think he knows the definition.
