I got so excited checking in on the Mr. Wu: Put a Panda on It pin project yesterday, that I completely forgot to set up today’s post, which I usually set up to go out around 6 AM PDT. I hope I can be excused, just this once. We reached our funding goal, so the Mr. Wu pin and patch, as well as the panda kindergarten key chain will be a reality in the not too distant future!
Now, we just have to get a little farther in our funding goal to make Pinky’s 2020 bumperstickers a reality! You don’t want to disappoint Pinky do you?
But now, let’s have TODAY’S pandas, in an episode we call: Pinky gets new minions!
Pinky’s previous minions are all grown up now, and know better than to listen to her, but…
PS: if you’d like to support another panda artist’s work, there’s still time to support Nolan Lee’s book publication, The Panda is Still Fat, over on Indegogo! (Ironically, Nolan is a cute young, skinny guy who might be as obsessed with pandas as I am! )
We are barely halfway through 2019 and we’ve had the first drop out from the Democratic field. (Not Pinky! Or Bob) While some might think that there are far too many people running for the Democratic nomination, I think the large field is a good thing. I think it helps each of us to clarify what the most important things are to us, as each candidate articulates what they want for this country of ours.
Each of the candidates has something to offer. Their focuses are different, even with a certain amount of overlap. I believe that by encouraging all to participate, we, the people, get to think about what are the issues that are important to us. And frankly, many of their policy ideas are needed now. Eric Swalwell was the first to leave the race, but his central issue, dealing with the over abundance of guns in our country and lack of sensible regulations, is an important one.
I hope as each of these candidates who fail to gain traction step aside, they will leave these important issues for the remaining candidates to pick up and add to the things they are passionate about. One thing is certain. This needs to be the final days of 45’s reign of contemptuous lawlessness.
But that’s enough of being serious! Bring on the pandas!
get out of the way! There is a Pinky coming through!
And don’t forget! only one more week for our Kickstarter campaign! Did we mention our fabulous Stretch Goal reward? You know you want this!
Back when I was freshly out of college, I had moved up to Western MA, and worked in a variety of restaurants, while trying to keep painting. The split shift I usually worked, didn’t leave a lot of time for painting on work days, so I fell into watching soap operas during my several off hours. The Young and the Restless was one show I remember.
But in Pinky’s case, it should be The Young and the Relentless!
Watch out, Bubba! Pinky is on the loose!
Bubba and Ping pins should be arriving soon! If you missed an opportunity, send me a message or comment!
Uh oh. I knew when I saw her new tiara (Pinky 2020) that it was a sign of trouble. Big trouble. Mommee Mei might have hoped that Pinky had learned something from her experience 4 years ago, and she did, they were just not the things Mommee Mei wanted her to learn.
Has anyone checked Babette de Panda’s tax returns yet?
And what ABOUT that pesky thingie in the Constitution about not profiting from elected office?
“Hey! I’m still back here!”
Apparently #HowardsEnd (my new name for the erstwhile coffee billionaire would-be-presidential candidate) was “wowing” the crowds once again at the SXSW conference in Austin Texas. And by “wowing” I mean underwhelming the audience with his continued lack of any kind of policy specifics/visions for America other than, “Democrats are socialists”; “Everyone is mean to me because I’m rich,” and “Democrats are the real spoilers” Wah, wah, wah.
Is this what you mean by a “listening tour?” Be better Howard.
I can’t help it. I’m a Scorpio. We hold grudges. And when you get a Scorpio artist/writer/cartoonist with the power to make fun of those who have wronged them and never apologized, well, then! Then we have an excellent story line for some ‘toons, should, for example, they decide to run for president as an independent candidate.
Any similarities between this ‘toon and a certain undeclared presidential candidate are quite possibly intentional.
