Daily Scribble finishes No. 2 in voting for best Web political cartoon of 2004

"Pithy, witty, funny and on top of the news. What blogs are to political commentary, the Daily Scribble is to the editorial cartoon. I keep coming back for more."  Joshua Micah Marshall, Talking Points Memo.

"Though Charles Pugsley Fincher would do well to find a stage name, his daily scribbles are nothing to scoff at. Plain and simple, on lined yellow scratch paper, yet they speak volumes." Jacob Wheeler,

Yesterday, George W. Bush sent his emergency, supplemental budget request for $82 billion. This comes one week after he sent his budget including his defense budget to Congress. The main part of this money is earmarked for Iraq.

Some doubt that this qualifies as an emergency since it's been planned since before the Bush budget was sent to Congress. Reasons for separating the supplemental request -- in addition to keeping the money out of the budget total -- is that emergency requests don't have to be as detailed as the budget itself, and also because such requests normally don't get the scrutiny of Congressional oversight that the actual budget does. Washington Post New York Times

"Big Time" is Bush's nickname for Dick Cheney.
