It was my pleasure to interview Legal Insurrection’s cartoonist extraordinaire, Antonio F. Branco, for Canto Talk this week.

Antonio shares his journey from proprietor of a graphics art business to Tea Party participant to one of America’s leading cartoon panel pundit:

“I was a late-comer…I went to a few rallies,” said Antonio, describing his entry into political activism. “I just fumed and vented, then I started to draw cartoons.”

We featured work from Antonio’s new book, comically incorrect. Antonio gives us a behind-the-scene view of some of his favorite panels, including one featuring two lobsters and a mention of Glenn Beck.

The book is available at a $5 discount off the $24.95 list price at Patriot Depot (where they throw in a calendar of Branco’s cartoons as well), and at list price at Amazon.

At Patriot Depot only you can purchase an autographed copy for $29.95.

We also talk about the history of political cartoons and cover a couple of current events. Antonio also gives us a few thoughts about the Republican presidential field.

I also offer an idea for an upcoming graphic: It seems the Obama’s dog is running wild in the White House:

The president’s fully-grown dog with impeccable breeding is taking poops in the White House.

First Lady Michelle Obama laughed about the animals defecating in the “People’s House.” She said the Portuguese Water Dogs, would still be rewarded with “lots of new toys and treats” for Christmas.

…Sunny, who cost roughly $2,500 and is the cousin of this year’s favorite at the Westminster dog show, has apparently been crapping in the White House for years. The dog was not potty trained when the Obamas got her in 2013.

We look forward to having Antonio return as a guest as we get closer to the 2016 election.
