 Concepts by Eli Goodman, illustrations by Eva Vikman


There are currently over 350 cartoons, with many more on the way. These are just a few of them.

Sadly.jpg

Sadly, the euphoria of the simple-minded Republican life has always eluded me.

It's always nice.jpg

It’s always nice to see doctors and their assistants on a first-name basis. After all, medicine is a team game.

Persistence.jpg

Persistence and commitment to excellence are the essences of golf— applicable to physicians, cartoonists, and just about all of us.

Coal and fossil.jpg

Coal and fossil fuels are not the only power sources that energize Republicans.

Contrary.jpg

Contrary to stereotypical belief, Republicans of color do, in fact, exist.

At the end.jpg

“At the end of the day,” boys and girls... well, the day simply ends. But it seems that trite speech will always be there for us the next morning. Alas, it is what it is.

Physicians should be.jpg

Physicians should be aware that a sudden inability to text may be a cardinal manifestation of disease.

The eternal.jpg

The eternal competition between competence vs bedside manner is a true conundrum. Can the two ever co-exist in superior states?

Cellular physiology no doubt contributes to the wonders of romance.

It's always fac.jpg

It’s always fascinating to observe mankind’s perpetual search for the impossible.

Mail is life.jpg

Mail is life. Life is mail. Speed only counts in sports and physics. The epistolary way is always the write way to be.

One of my favorite quotes.jpg

One of my favorite quotes (author unknown to me) is this one: “An unused stamp is but half a contract.” As you can see, it’s a matter I take it very seriously.

I believe that.jpg

I believe that ultimately it will be pizza that brings all of us to a better state.

Yes, I DID.jpg

Yes, I DID just order and consume 2 Big Macs without meat. Rather pedestrian, but edible. Cheese Whoppers without meat taste better, I think.

But technology.jpg

But technology not yet invented to help me sink those 6-foot putts.

Dr. G has always.jpg

For vegans, golf has always presented strong conundrums.

My Republican friends assure me that goo

A surgeon.jpg

We need to remind ourselves periodically of golf’s inherent element of danger.

No sacrifice.jpg

No sacrifice of the social contract too great in the pursuit of Republican Olympic Gold.

No question that.jpg

No question that I’ve had my lifetime share of terrific ex and divorce.

The boundaries of golf.jpg

The boundaries of golf and life have always perplexed me.

35533253_1069579586531181_74647731231795

My inside sources tell me that “RATIONAL REPUBLICAN” was a close runner-up.

Existentially speaking,.jpg

Existentially speaking, you are what your golf game says you are.

Anthropological and political.jpg

Anthropological and political sciences have nothing over the Bible.

The rangefinder.jpg

The rangefinder mitigates my tendency to over-club myself.

What would we do.jpg

What would we do without sports?!

More Republican psychiatrists.jpg

More Republican psychiatrists needed to minimize obsessions in kids. In adults too, for that matter.

A sense of entrapment.jpg

A sense of entrapment has been forever part of my game.

Not much else.jpg

Not much else left in life to not master.

My world would.jpg

My world would surely be less complex if I learned how to be a Republican.

Nothing like societal.jpg

Nothing like societal challenges to fire up our Republican friends.

Magicians must surely admire.jpg

Magicians must surely admire Republicans the most, as both utilize to the maxx diversion, distortion, deflection, and deception.

The exes.jpg

All of us (and.jpg

All of us (and apparently everything else in the universe) are connected— to Olney, Illinois.

Everyone, including Republicans.jpg

Everyone, including Republicans, loves movies.

Who says that Republicans.jpg

Who says that Republicans eschew math and science!

Medical protocols .jpg

Medical protocols have always perplexed me.

maybe poverty.jpg

Maybe poverty is the solution to our trash problem.

Having been all.jpg

Having been all my life “high touch, low tech,” Dr. Flippp’s (yes, with 3 p’s) new app intimidates me.

In theory, all windbags.jpg

In theory, all windbags eventually run out of air.

And_let’s_face_it.jpg

And let’s face it, internal medicine has never been for me an easy operation, either.

It appears that my lifelong.jpg

It appears that my lifelong quest to hit a golf ball straight has been a misguided one.

I thank the.jpg

 I thank the Creator that the Creator gave me the insight to be both a Rotarian and a Democrat, as I never had the courage and strength to be a SEAL.

Further proof.jpg

Let’s_acknowledge.jpg

Let’s acknowledge that great medical care should also include convenience.

The years sure.jpg

The years sure go by quickly— it’s already 170 on Jupiter.

The S.H.E.jpg

"It must be tough to be a Republican these days, as so many folks out there seem incapable to find Republican entreaties useful."

No enlightenment.jpg

No enlightenment ever evident in Republican radio’s perpetual absences of debate and doubt. Nothing but KRAP 24/7, indeed.

Being high touch.jpg

Being high touch, low tech, has always been a troublesome way to live.

And_let’s_face_it.jpg

Also why I’m not a vet, dentist, SEAL, or astronaut.

Decent shopping.jpg

Decent shopping is a hallmark of the new social order.

You only live twice.jpg

“You Only Live Twice.”

 

OK, boys and girls: There’s been much gossip out there that despite the fact that I am a congenital Democrat who daily gives thanks to The Creator that The Creator did not make me a Republican, I actually share much in common with Donald Trump. Perhaps so. DT and I are essentially the same age. We both went to Penn for our undergraduate studies, and we both have a bunch of ex’s. While we do not share the same religion, we both love Israel and the Jewish people.


But most important, I think, is that we both believe this maxim taught to us by a legendary Penn professor of religious studies: “If it rhymes, it must be true.”
(No fake news here: The lyrics to DT’s favorite song above derive from the eponymous theme song— sung by Nancy Sinatra-- of the 1967 James Bond movie, “You Only Live Twice.”)

True liberation.jpg

True liberation! Dave Ramsey needs to hear about this.

We hear that nothing.jpg

We hear that nothing is impossible, but golf probably comes close.

From the treasured.jpg

From the treasured “RTTA Manual Of The Meaningful Life”: “It is never wise to squander wealth on the social contract.”

It is amazing.jpg

It is an amazing Republican strategy that the best way to handle societal challenges is to ignore, vilify, defund, and eliminate efforts to solve the challenges.

For better or worse.jpg

For better or worse, I can say with all confidence that the Republican chromosome has never run in my family.

It's not myth.jpg

It’s no myth that dragons & I don’t get along.

My republican friends seem.jpg

My Republican friends seem proud of any wall that shuts out hopes of a better social order.

It's not easy to.jpg

It’s not easy these days to overcome the lack of hardship to become a star. We need more success stories like this one.

Despite this magazine.jpg

Despite this magazine’s popularity, I still fear that my Republican friends demonstrate no real interest to help repair our broken world.

Maybe this is.jpg

Maybe this is why I always tend to run late in the clinic.

I envy my Republican.jpg

I envy my Republican friends that they have their very own magazine.

I personally think.jpg

"I personally think vegans make the best future ex's."

I wonder if.jpg

I wonder if the Kremlin’s Komcast rates are better than those we get here.

Is it possible.jpg

Is it possible that even a decent Republican might represent a danger to us?!

There will always be that rare.jpg

There will always be that rare Republican who occasionally steals a glimpse ahead— beyond the 11th century.

Ah, to be.jpg

Ah, to be Republican and free. Can’t beat it.

Fortunately.jpg

Fortunately, this pumpkin finds himself with access to an excellent “PPO” (Pumpkin Provider Organization).

Halloween 2017.jpg

Proper medical care for pumpkins is no joke, boys & girls— especially on Halloween.

“TUSM,” by the way, stands for Tufts Univ. School Of Medicine— my med school alma mater. Fabulous school. Located in Boston— a cool city that even Philadelphians can appreciate.

Halloween 2017.jpg

Republicans apparently have solved the intellectual conundrum that it is possible to love one’s country, but not necessarily its people.
