A new cartoon strip
The election has left me in an anomalous state; I could not believe that America, or this much of America, would ignore Obama's unsavory past associations and actions. I figured that the usual suspects would: those who let themselves be flattered into servility, the professionally aggrieved, and those on the make. I cannot attribute wickedness to Obama himself for I just don't see it. I see, frankly, nothing outside the wrapping. Mark Steyn said that when he heard Obama speak he had to fight an urge to giggle and I understand that.
So it's been a workaday world and for entertainment some slight satire.
Echoing that bad dream of the Clinton years, the Obamas have decided to get a dog, no doubt for the sloppy and sentimental vote, for the White House. What dog, and what name for it? A friend has an answer.
This is the first of a proposed new cartoon strip by BigFurHat, the artist. Others are working in collaboration on the story line for possible future ones.
Some tid-bits from Oleg Atbashian:
Poll: most Muslims find curvature of Riemannian manifolds offensive
Violence in Iraq down 60%; media stories reporting this down 6000%
Murtha: if we quit now, capitalism will win
Berkeley ousting US Marines gives hope to al Qaeda: "If hippies can do it, so can we!"
Focus group: if water boarding was a sexual preference, they'd be teaching it in public schools
Friendly fire: BBC office hit by al-Qaeda rocket
And the next-to-best:
World to USA: "Fix world ecomonic crisis so we can get back to hating you"
And the very best:
US Postal Service to publish Obama's resume on new stamp
Enjoy life in grumbling opposition. The Republican party has collapsed into a rump party in two years. There will be a lot of fixing to do before the White House is in Republican hands--I predict that the Chosen One will be chosen again in 2012, unless something really nasty comes up.
Silly me. The media won't report it if it does, and Clinton stayed in office the whole eight years.
