Conjuring Charlton Heston's Ghost

Barack Obama simply makes it too easy for us cartoonists with his latest outlandish speech. The problem I was having was coming up with a way to lampoon it that wasn't already being done, or that wasn't so obvious. Separately, I was also struggling to come up with a cartoon to rightfully honor the late Charlton Heston. Finally, I came up with this idea, a funny toon (in my humble opinion) that amazingly combines both in one cartoon. As a result, I'm killing two birds with one stone, as they say (just don't tell PETA).

"Benjamin Hummel possesses the single most important characteristic required of an editorial cartoonist: a passion for the issues. His point of view is never in doubt. When you add a sense of humor, a feel for irony and fine-tuned art skills, you have here a cartoonist worth your attention."

--Mike Keefe, Denver Post Cartoonist

"Finally, an editorial cartoonist who leans right, lives his faith, sees the funny side of politics, and can draw. Conservatives are going to like Ben's pen."
