Bought and Paid For, But Never Published. National Review, 1988


 

I guess I have to include this cartoon in my "Bought and Paid For, But Never Published" category. As far as I know, it never saw the light of day by being printed in National Review after it was purchased. I have no idea why the editors changed their minds -- it seems like a pretty innocuous statement to me.

Explanation: Back in those days, some people weren't happy with the "liberal" leanings of the U.S. Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice Earl Warren. This cartoon was a natural for William Buckley's conservative publication, National Review, although I didn't draw it with that magazine in mind. I was kind of hoping that The New Yorker or The Wall Street Journal would nibble on it, but apparently that was not meant to be.
