    I like all the sound descriptions he uses when the balloons explode. Hobbes always makes me laugh.

    I like Hobbes’s cunning tactic. So nonchalant.

    I’m pretty sure I was Hobbes in a past life. Also I existed solely on paper.

    After all the bragging yesterday, Hobbes is rubbing it in today. Perhaps Calvin is not quite as brilliant as he thought.

    Just face it, Calvin. You never win.

    What would a shrink say about an imaginary friend who is twice as smart/wise as you are, Calvin?

    Oh, he wins once in a while… which makes revenge an even colder dish when it’s finally served.

    This is a not so subtle critique on American-Soviet nuclear war madness. Both counties vie foolishly for being Calvin. It is the fallacy in thinking that sheer numbers counts for anything “safer” in such weapons of ultimate destruction. Watterson has made Calvin a cypher for every US president and Soviet/Russian premier since 1948. Meanwhile, Hobbes represents the rest of us everyday liberal citizens in both countries who are aware of the madness of such thinking. As Sting so gloriously sang, “I hope the Russians love their children too.”

    I loved water balloon fights as a kid. It was a great time, and the weather was perfect for it.

    Every time I think I’m smarter than a fifth grader, a stuffed animal proves me wrong.

    @buildingbridges: As if the Soviet Union wasn’t radically liberal by its very nature (authoritarian-liberal, in fact)!

    The problem with the MAD doctrine didn’t lay in its being conservative, moderate or liberal (economically); it lay in its being authoritarian (socially) - which is something different. Stalin and Gandhi were about equally liberal - it takes another dimension to distinguish them, the social one.

    I invited you to check out the very helpful The Political Compass (UK) online sometime for a better model of how the world wags than the outmoded left-right, linear paradigm of politics.

    (if it were only made of three axes instead of two - justice, mercy and faith, in effect - it would be even better)

    Well there goes the superiority.
