    Is JohnCole just another PW intern sitting next to Alan/ML and Skeptic …or (more likely) the only cartoonist paying attention to NC, and drawing your perspective on things?

    He’s a syndicated cartoonist out of Pa.

    Guess he is the only cartoonist out there spouting the leftist view. At least he found a niche, and his Elmer Fudd is pretty good.

    GOP Rules,

    You’re right! All cartoonists are conservative, USA loving patriots that wouldn’t spout “the leftist view”.

    All the best for 2014, I hope you find a real job and manage to get out of your moms basement (or the Civitas office…).

    John Cole was the editorial cartoonist for The Raleigh Times before its passing. He then went to the Times-Tribune in Scranton, PA. From what I’ve seen of him, his focus is those in power and he plays no political favorites (President Obama is a frequent subject of his cartoons, which are available in a blog on his employer’s website.)
