The Straight Talk Express


Yesterday's post wasn't meant to be a downer, but more a tempering of the euphoria.It didn't take long for that whole test if he has a spine thing to start up.

It's a common myth that cartoonists want the idiots in charge so they can have someone providing them with material. The idiots don't need to be in charge. I voted for Obama knowing that even with an Obama Presidency, there will be plenty of Republican ass-clowns, ass-hats, moonbats, wingnuts, and dingbats providing us with comic fodder. So, yes, let's celebrate!

I've compiled a handy list of ways to celebrate Obama's victory.

1. Bake a pie. No, bake 2 pies, and give one to that old man with the McCain sign in his yard a few doors down, the guy that chases leaves on a daily basis with his leaf blower. This will not only help the pie based economy, it will help usher in a Golden Age of Pie-Partisanship. Spread the wealth!

2. While the pie is cooling, do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonite.

3. Eat some pie.

4. Rewrite the song Lonesome Cowboy Burt as Lonesome Plumber Joe. Perform the song in a garage with the garage's owner, Joe. Be sure to include lyrics with Joe The Plumber eloping to Vegas with Ashley Todd.

5. Visit your favorite Progressive Liberal Think Tanks, and say hello.

Just a short list to get you started. I'm all for dancing in the streets, too, just don't go getting carried away thinking Obama's going to feed all the hungry gasoline engines with a bag of fish and a couple of loaves of bread. The "Lower Gas Prices to $2.00 a Gallon Right Before The Election" strategy didn't work out for the McCain cronies, so you can expect gas prices to shoot up fairly quickly.

The "John McCain: Apocalypse Now Redux" T-Shirt can be purchased at The Zencomix Online Market.

I like how you've changed your blog.

If gas prices don't start climbing before gw leaves ; ) I'll be very surprised. Last chance to make a few more $$$$ at our expense.

U R right, they'll always make things absurd ; (

Hey, thanks. The template change opened things up a bit, and I think the neutral background makes the drawings pop a little more. I can actually post images 600 pixels wide without messing up the layout. The old template only allowed 400 wide.
