“All Year”

Think the campaign season is over? Think again. Political cartoonist Mark Fiore looks at the next phase in political spending.

Caption the Cartoon: Animal House


With so much territorial, antagonistic and cagey behavior going on in Washington, our whole political system can seem like a zoo at times — and our cartoonist imagined it exactly that way. Now all it needs are your clever words. Submit captions below that share your point of view, and please don’t feed the politicians.

Our editors will pick one to add to the official Caption the Cartoon Winners’ Gallery.

“Newly Frugal Guy”

“Look, up in the sky! It’s Newly Frugal Guy.” Newly Frugal Guy has a plan for cutting the deficit without going back to the “dark days of Clinton, back when the economy was, was… well, never mind.” Follow Newly Frugal Guy’s plan for fighting the deficit to guarantee a newly frugal bipartisan future for all!

“Perpetual Campaign”

The Citizens United stimulus worked. Political spending is America’s economic powerhouse. Don’t let the voters put a stop to $6 billion in free-market activity that’s good for the economy and good for America. It’s time for the perpetual campaign!

Caption the Cartoon: Who’s Got Issues?

Yes, our political campaigns have issues, but not all issues are treated alike. Some — like climate change, poverty, and education — are routinely ignored as if they don’t merit any attention at all. We gave you a chance to give some voice to those topics… literally.

The winner is Perry Stevens. See the winning caption above, and check out all the winning captions and cartoons in the official Caption the Cartoon Winners’ Gallery.
