    Well he’s recovered nicely from losing all that money.

    I’m thinking this could end badly for Mr. Overkill. (Possible blackmail for losing $50M of a client’s money.)

    If Duke’s already got his money, he’s not entirely a loser…

    No, No! I know what’s coming! Overkill is going to send Jeff in! Jeff thinks he’s going in to be a hero; Overkill thinks he’s getting rid of Jeff for good. Duke doesn’t care as long as his gets a little ka-ching.

    Time for the Red Rascal to start his own Merc company and go do a spectacular extraction!

    Overkill will charge Duke $50M for the spec-op AND send in Red Rascal Redfern - both problems solved. It’s business. Another fine blend!

    Don’t get too smug, Overkill. After all, you’re the one who gave Jeff Redfern (a.k.a.: the Red Rascal) a suitcase with $50,000,000 in cash inside. (Which is actually physically impossible, but never mind.)

    It won’t be the Rascal saving BMZ. He’s being held in reserve for a special ops mission to extract the governor of Wisconsin from the angry mob.

    Uh-oh… Why is my Red Rascal Sense tingling?

    While Doonesbury rambles on about Duke being out of touch, Sarah Palin provides the only real-time absurdities with her Palinosis (defined as verbal impairment caused by the trauma of political change).

    Addressing a group of supporters on Long Island, she tried to explain how she would balance the budget:

    “We don’t have to reinvent any wheels to get the economy back on the right track,” she said. “The solution in here to fix the problem, you know what it is? You invest in a five-cent stamp and you write your congressman and you tell him, ‘You’re going to get fired! Five cents back in the day [47 years ago, when SP was born].’”

    “Nothing’s changed. It’s the same principles that can be applied.”

    He HAS to send in the Red Rascal…the kid owes him $50M.

    jeff will get bogged down, forcing the army to send melissa’s unit in for an extraction. then they’ll fall in love, and…

    …wait, I feel like I’m writing Jeff’s blog for him…

    I think I’ve figured out how to pronounce the Dictator-for-Life’s name, BMZKLFRPZ:

    Bim-Zikl-Frips.

    What? You say something else is happening? What?

    Nice work, palin. You’ve managed to interject something entirely irrelevant to the topic said by someone who isn’t even in public office.

    However, from our Vice President who IS in public office, and is actively working to help shape world events, we have this:

    “Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S.”

    “When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed. He said, “look, here’s what happened.””

    “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

    “In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

    I could cite the list of contradictory quotes about the situation in Egypt by Mr. Biden, but I suspect that I’d run out of space,

    The best thing about Biden is that he makes Palin look like a genius in comparison - and she’s not.
