    Jeff’s delusions are good for Random House.

    Palin’s and Rice’s books are in the dollar stores now – what a difference a year makes.

    That’s about all they’re worth! ;)

    @MassieVoter and @Randywriter:
    Rice is a smart woman, she has a PHD. Why she ever threw her lot in with cheney/shrub is a mystery to me. Palin is the polar (pun intended) opposite, a total flake.

    Going back to yesterday’s discussion on the first president of the United States, I think we have four candidates, depending on when the US became a country.
    1. Peyton Randolph was elected president of the Continental Congress in 1774. This was before the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution.
    2. John Hancock was president of the Congress when the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776.
    3. Samuel Huntington was the first president of Congress under the Articles of Confederation, which were ratified in 1781.
    4. George Washington was the first President of the United States under the Constitution, which was ratified in 1787.

    I vote for John Hancock, since the US became a country after the Declaration. The other three certainly have their own legitimate claims to the title of first president.

    Maybe, just maybe, George Washington was the first President elected under the Constitutional rules for election to Federal office … you know, voting by the populace (white male landowners) and then by the electoral college?

    Wish Trudeau would explain how Jeff went from hero to zero with his morgage. Easy come, easy go, but details are nice!

    Like Holden Caulfield, he’s likely skirting the fact that he’s really being institutionalized. Sigh!

    Fascinating that Trudeau thinks a rerun series is more interesting than anything happening politically at the moment.

    I’m going to stick with Washington, on the grounds that there was an America, but no United States, until they were actually united by the Constitution being ratified. Before that, they could still be 13 small countries.

    Well, as old as this strip is if you check out the news today in Libya, it seems to be fairly topical. I realize that the character is caught up in his own story, but he is someone who is trying to play on what is going on in the middle east and his own fantasy world. Well, guess what? Our embassy in Libya was attacked yesterday, several people were killed, among them our own ambassador. Why? Because some extremists who thought that God was on their side, felt they had the right to do what they did. Obama has condemned the attacks. Meanwhile, Romney has accused Obama of “sympathizing” with the attackers. This was to be expected, yet, just once, couldn’t he act like an adult?

    We have no idea how long Trudeau may have planned to be on vacation this week. I am sure that he has a contract which states exactly how much content he has to produce and when he is to go on vacation. Meanwhile, the world does continue to turn, convenient or not…

    You mean there is a store that will pay you a dollar to take a copy of Palin or Rice’s book offer their hands?!? I’ll have to avoid that store!

    Even though GT works on a shorter deadline than most cartoonists, he may still have prepared a storyline that became inappropriate or irrelevant due to circumstances. That does happen once in a while and they may have pulled it and replaced it with these. Fox Trot yanked one strip after teh Aurora, CO shooting. We the readers do not always know the whys of these things.

    There was a time, not too long ago, when politicians running for office, would honor the concept of politics stopping at the waters edge. They would say that, “America speaks with one voice”. But lately it seems that the only ones who honor that anymore, are Democrats. I wonder why that is, and then I remember. Because Republicans have the ethics of a rotting skunk. My apologies to the skunk.
