I am pleased to announce that Antonio F. Branco will begin contributing political cartoons created exclusively for Legal Insurrection.

Tony will continue his work at other websites, including Conservative Daily News and NetRight Daily, but has agreed to create two weekly cartoons specifically for Legal Insurrection.

Recently, you have seen two of Tony’s cartoons here, one regarding Obama’s “you didn’t build that” speech and another regarding the premature announcement of the Tea Party’s demise.

Tony’s work is on par, in my estimation, with the best political cartoonists.  The good news is that we will have him contributing to Legal Insurrection; the bad news is that it’s only a matter of time before some big-time publication or syndicator scoops him up because he’s that good.  Actually, that “bad news” would be “good news” because he deserves a broader audience.

Join Tony’s Facebook page, Freedom’s Battle, and please also consider a donation to him, as it’s not easy breaking into the political cartoon market.

Other bloggers and websites are free to reprint Tony’s Legal Insurrection cartoons provided a link back to the blog post is provided.

Here is Tony’s first cartoon for Legal Insurrection, regarding Harry Politics:

Best “you didn’t build that” political cartoon

A really good political cartoon sums up the absurdity of a situation without much verbiage.

This cartoon by A.F. Branco (original here, reprinted with permission) captures perfectly how out of touch Obama is when discussing the role of government in helping individuals succeed.

Sure, taxes (including from business owners) go towards building a common infrastructure, but government also imposes substantial barriers to success.

Contrary to Obama’s narrative, you do have to be smarter and/or work harder to succeed in order to overcome the regulatory and tax burden government places on success.  Most people understand this, just not the President.
