I want to write Super Liberal. Able to smell BS from a mile away. Able to leap over right wing conservatives with a single bound. Wanting to help the poor and uneducated, while being accused of being too much in favor of big government. While his opponents abuse thier power in the government to over ride the court system in favor of their political gain. It's Super Liberal! His only weakness is women interns.

Super Liberal coming to a comic shop near you!

A great comic to be the bad guy in for sure. I would like to the wacky liberal that accidentally kills Shawn Hannity in my distorted attempt at finding his soul. I could become confused when I realize that he is not human but some strange robot that runs on pig excrement built by a brilliant right wing fringe group that plans world domination through bad comic books. You can call me “The Teodo”

If the basic premise, as presented, is that America is being overrun by a liberal agenda such that "Usama Bin Laden" would be "the honorable ambassador from Afghanistan" then I'd have to say a) that's terribly insulting to assume that if Gore won instead of Bush, we'd not only be placating a terrorist who killed thousands, but allow him to be ambassador, and b) I don't know what America you're currently living in, with a two-term Republican president and both the Senate and the House run by a Republican majority...so why all the anger, bile and contempt for those who hold views that differ from your own?

Hannity's problem, or success I guess, is that he is one of those "whatever my side  does, it is right" kind of guys. He also uses rhetoric that is pretty extreme.

That works for him and has made him a lot of money. It can be entertaning, and he may sometimes bring up something that otherwise would be overlooked.

But, all in all, he cannot be taken seriously as a source to learn from or take too seriously.

....and that's the memo......

Why did the Editor in chief of Playgirl get fired right after she announced she was a Republican? 

I thought he was just joking but I see your point Matt. But I still think it is satire

 

*Maybe she was terrible at her job, who knows I'm not that up on the doings of Playgirl magazine, but it looks bad.

Maybe she was just a lousy EiC and happened to be mouthing off about politics while her professional situation was going down the toilet.

All else aside, I'm pretty sure you're proabaly about 65 years late with the
"World's First Conservative Comic."

...and maybe you might want to read Cerebus 150-300.
