    Jeff, your dad’s been there, done that, and still has the T-shirt hanging in his closet.

    I think there is a need for a check up from the neck up.

    So, the Mel boat has long since sailed by since he probably won’t get a war profiteer job and won’t go back to Havoc. WHom will Mel meet in the future?

    Rick seems rather pensive as he realizes that the journalistic ability to BS is an inherited trait.

    The wisdom of the Red Rascal prevails in this case. If one doesn’t have a full resume, a legend manufactured for public consumption will have to do. How else does one explain our current executive leadership?

    I’m going after the spammers next!

    @Nenesys Uh… if you’re talking about the corporate culture, then the only explanation I might have is “competition.”

    If you’re talking about the Chief Executive of the U.S., then I really don’t know what you mean. The voters turned down an application for V.P. by someone with a rather inflated resume.

    Funny how I haven’t noticed it before now, but Jeff’s haircut looks like one of the instruments used by the barber was a bowl.

    Its probably safer to hire someone with an imaginary alter ego than someone with a real alter ego.

    Nemesys - uh, I dunno - the previous “executive leadership”*, maybe?

    • Sorry - I can’t apply that phrase to Duhhhbya without putting it in quotes. And air fingers, even.

    Jeff’s very identity—-and his self-esteem—depends entirely on an imaginary evil he calls “the Taliban.” His father’s comment (“What a magnificent load, son”) expresses the liberal’s non-response to evil. Evil has no real meaning for Rick, so he can only see irony in his son’s imaginary battle with an imaginary foe.

    Since he’s required to dress more professional, does this mean the Red Rascal will be wearing a red necktie to work?

    Rick is old school journalism when facts mattered and investigative journalism meant something. The character was modeled on Woodward of Woodward and Bernstein fame. The name Rick Redfern is a variation on Robert Redford, who played Woodward in “All the Presidents Men.”

    Re: “the liberal’s non-response to evil”

    Palindrome should have called it the liberals’ Manichaean response to evil. That’s the source of Neolib’s political outlook whereby she divides the voters into progressive sheep and reactionary goats. The sheep are on the side of light and the goats (including all Republicans) dwell in darkness.

    @ Wildcard Thank goodness the country went for Joe Biden. His sharp wit and intelligent statements truly represent those who voted for him.
