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,

In 2003, Alberto Gonzales was notified by John Ashcroft's Justice Department that the Plame leaks investigation was to begin. Gonzales asked for and -- according to him -- got 12 additional hours to notify White House staffers of the investigation, though he immediately told Andrew Card. What went on during that 12-hour gap. I was reminded of Richard Nixon's secretary trying to explain the 18 1/2 minute gap in Nixon's Watergate tapes. See yesterday's Scribble for my notes written at the time (I had it as 11 hours then). Today's has a report on Gonzales' version of those 12 hours.
