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,

Newest Scribble, below. Yesterday's Scribble, Archive: Bush Europlomacy, Day 1: Belgium king, Nato's Jaap de Hoop, France's Chirac.

George W. Bush wants to mend fences with European leaders who in turn want to respond. This is driven by economics and security. It's where the idea of the Lone Ranger Bush and his Euro-Tontos sprang from.

Bush's speech in Brussels was received politely, but not enthusiastically. He used those simplistic, grand-vision phrases that he uses back in the U.S. which are all about him, his ego and his salesmanship. It's a sort of trust-me-to-decide what freedom is that allows Gitmo, secret C.I.A. prisons, the Patriot Act, but forbids medical marijuana, stem cell research, access to the courts, the right to die and a woman's right to choose. Moreover it's a freedom policy that doesn't apply to countries that are big, trading partners or that are too poor to matter.
