Cal Thomas

The most widely syndicated political columnist in America, Cal Thomas has been capturing America, one reader at a time, for more than 20 years, and he’ll certainly provoke discussion and debate on your editorial pages.

At a time when America’s political scene couldn’t be more compelling, or fast changing, Thomas takes an unwavering stand for traditional conservative values and American “can-do spirit” that transcends either party.

A wide-ranging social commentator rather than a “beltway insider,” Thomas is attuned to mainstream America. And he’ll take on any topic, from the decline of the American family to the growing threat of terrorism.

David Horsey

Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner David Horsey is known for his cartoons' biting satire and clever allusions to contemporary culture, as well as for his supreme talent as an artist and draftsman. He also happens to be a subtle and accomplished essayist.

David's political cartoon feature is unique, as it moves alongside a short essay about the subject. Not an explanation of the cartoon, the essay is instead a complementary meditation, delving a little deeper and sometimes following a different thread of keen political satire. The combined effect of the cartoon and essay is a powerful and thought-provoking exposition of a major issue of the day, and a valuable addition to any editorial page.

Horsey's feature is not available to be published in markets in the state of California.

His editorial cartoons are distributed as part of the TMS Editorial Cartoon Service.
