    You limo will be provided by the Sanitation Department; it will take you to the ash heap of history.

    Do I love this perspicacious child? Are W, Dick, Colon and Condoleezza all out of office? Did Arthur C. Clarke write “Childhood’s End”?
     
    As soon as she’s 35 years old: SAM FOR PRESIDENT.

    Since I don’t follow Muir, I find him a bit ambiguous re Palin in the referred strip: Assuming that the woman to Ms. President’s right is her daughter, what is the daughter’s wish? Is the strip meant to be ironic and satirical dream (nightmare) sequence?
     
    And: Is the black infant Ms. President is holding a veiled reference to her own alleged dalliance with a black basketball star?

    The characters in the last panel of Muir’s strip are 2 regular characters. The redhead’s wish was that Palin would have run and been elected President in 2012. The black child is the other woman’s child (her husband is black).

    Muir’s pathological obsession for Palin is only equalled by his psychotic hatred of Obama. In previous scripts he has accused Obama of shutting down lemonade, responsible for the persecution of Christians in Libya, and not handling the death Kim Jong Il effectively.

    If this were Childhood’s End, Sam wouldn’t have got to be 35.

    True enough, in a literalistic sort of way, but . . .
     
    . . . my point: An allegorical correspondence may be set up connecting Clarke’s vision for mankind (via benevolent alien “Overlords”) for a better world and my vision for Sam for a better America, and hence a better world. I think of RFK’s transcendent campaign slogan: “To seek a newer world”. [Yes, I know she’s a comic strip character. If she were a real person, then I couldn’t set up such a vision. You see, I’m just not a cynic. (I’m a mysticist.)]

    “They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
    Though they go mad they shall be sane”.
     
    —The real Dylan Thomas, “And Death Shall Have No Dominion”. Born October 27, 1914, Swansea, Carmarthenshire, Wales. Died November 9, 1953, age 39, of “a massive alcoholic insult to the brain” (according to the doctor), Manhattan, NY, USA (while on a reading tour).

    Maybe Sarah Doll shouldn’t have tried to mutiny and overthrow Sam.

    Whew! If the three daily strips of “Day by Day” I viewed are representative of the strip as a whole, then “DBD” makes “Mallard Fillmore” look like “Tom the Dancing Bug.”

    Well, Sarah seems to have built herself another “Bridge to Nowhere,” using gobs of other folks’ money. I wonder: If she could connect her new BTN up to the old one, would it take us all right back to where we were before?

    I was going to comment on the strip, but my oatbran muffin just kicked in.
