Note to my regular viewers… all five of you. Thank you for being awesome loyal fans. I’m in a crazy time of my life right now, and finding the time to create awesome cartoons that just kick rear end has escaped me. But I want to reward you for your loyalty and give you something fresh to look at. Therefore, for the next several weeks, every Monday morning, I’m going to post an illustration from one of the many articles I’ve illustrated for Centennial Review. I’ll provide the link online, so that you read the full article. Then as I have time, I’ll continue to post additional cartoons, as the political scene in Washington has gone crazy the past couple weeks.
We’ll start with an article written by James Bennett for the April 2010 issue of Centennial Review.

By James C. Bennett
Americans have a strong sense of exceptionalism, seeing themselves as distinct in important ways from the rest of the world. This is not an illusion: It is real. But it exists within a deeper and older exceptionalism of theEnglish-speaking peoples. The U.S.A.owes a grateful debt to that remarkable civilizational heritage which some of us call the Anglosphere.
