The vast majority of editorial cartoonists are liberal so the few, conservative cartoonists stand out as unusual, and often stand alone voicing ideas that seldom find their way into general circulation newspapers; Gary and Rivers are among the best among the few and talk about living in a world of liberal editors which includes their liberal editor who is hosting the podcast, Daryl Cagle.
Gary and Rivers show lots of their favorite cartoons, they enjoy denigrating Dr. Anthony Fauci; they deny the efficacy of COVID vaccines; they complain about the ignorance of liberals who watch MSNBC; they let us know that we wouldn't have this war in Ukraine now if Trump was in office; they tell us about how the insurrection wasn't an insurrection at all, and how most of the MAGA folks on January 6th were out for a peaceful stroll. We could have titled this "Cartoons from the Bizarro Dimension." ...but we love Gary and Rivers. Really, we do.
