The Mighty Pen

Today we appreciate the artistic license and wit of Kahlil Bendib, cartoonist.  Here are two recent cartoons, and there are plenty more at his web site.


Wikipedia: Bendib now distributes his political cartoons independently to alternative media outlets outside of the corporate mainstream media. By August 2007, when his first book, Mission Accomplished: Wicked Cartoons by America’s Most Wanted Political Cartoonist, was published, Bendib’s cartoons had appeared in more than 1,700 small and mid-sized newspapers.

In addition to his work as a cartoonist, Bendib also co-hosts a weekly one-hour radio program called Voices of the Middle East and North Africa on Pacifica Radio station KPFA (94.1 FM), in Berkeley, California.

In 2008, Bendib ran a spoof campaign for President of the United States, claiming to be the first Muslim-American candidate. However, Randall A. Venson, an actual candidate preceded him in 2000.
