It is with great sadness that I note the ending of The Illustrated Daily Scribble written by Charles Pubsley Fincher. This was one of my daily stops online and provided me with many a provacative chuckle at the expense of the insanity known as the Bush Administration.

I first found the Daily Scribble after visiting Thaddus and Weez. Sad to say, that had ended as well. But there are great scripts in the archives.

'Scribble' Ends, Cartoonist Says Bush Admin. Hard to Satirize

NEW YORK Charles Fincher today ended his "The Illustrated Daily Scribble" political cartoon.

Why? "We seem to have a 'Groundhog Day' White House with Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld saying the same things and making the same excuses over and over, which can be creatively limiting to satire," said Fincher. "You'd think they'd consider a cartoonist's need for something new once in a while!"

Fincher has a new, thrice-weekly cartoon project called "Scribble-in-Law" on his Law Comix site. "It draws on my background as both a cartoonist and a lawyer," he said. "Its target audience is people involved in the field of law, though I hope others enjoy it, too. It's not political in content, but instead ranges from topical legal satire to somewhat eccentric humor."

Go visit the site and see what I mean. Take a look at the archives, you might find a great cartoon worthy of a T Shirt.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
