The majority of Virginians do not want Republican Ed Gillespie as their governor and yet, he may become their governor.
Currently, he’s barely trailing in the polls and is within the margin of error. If Democrats and Independents don’t get out and vote this coming Tuesday, the man running a fear campaign about Latino gangs, sanctuary cities, Confederate statues, and the heritage of white people will win the governor’s race.
This race isn’t just important for Virginia. It’s important nationally. We can’t give the Trump administration any momentum with a victory in the Old Dominion. Do you want to wake up Wednesday morning to see a tweet from Donald Trump bragging about how this is a victory for him and the Trump agenda. Do you want to hear Trump using our state to compliment himself? I don’t.
Russians haven’t needed to run hate ads in Virginia that would manipulate the outcome and divide the electorate. Mr. Ed has been more than willing to do it for them.
Vote Tuesday. Vote against hate. Vote against Trump. Vote against Nazis.
Creative notes: This is my last cartoon on the race before the election. This cartoon’s file date is November 5th (when it will appear on sites like GoComics), and the election is on the 7th.
I used the “white women” line from Blazing Saddles two years ago in a cartoon. I was curious, and funny thing, that cartoon was dated November 5th, 2015. That’s a little spooky.
I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated. Want to help me continue to create cartoons and keep doing what I’m doing (pissing off conservatives)?
