Terrorist: Aiee! Red Rascal: Nice try, jihad boy! Greetings from the NSA! Terrorist: Doh! My cell! Red Rascal: So I left him there-- as a warning! Woman: Dark! Red Rascal: Want to see the pix of my Bali vacation? Terrorist: No! Please... July saw Sorkh Razil fighting evil near Kabul. August, more of the same. October had our hero on break at a Club Med in Bali. By November, he was back on the job!

    Remember, it wasn’t a break in the sit-on-the-beach sense, the man was working on Alpha House for Amazon.

    Actually I think it’s just the sheer terror of being exposed to the usual nightmare 300 holiday snaps.

    Great posts at the end of the day yesterday LWP. I am glad I went back and checked to see what else was said yesterday.

    A return to reality in the last panel is a good idea, but it was Watterson’s standard technique in “Calvin and Hobbes”, and it is likely that Trudeau would want to avoid appearing imitative.

    Oh wow, the President took a week off during the summer. I guess no other President has done that. President Obama has taken the second fewest vacation days of any modern President. Only Clinton took fewer vacation days (libs have a strong work ethic).

    Good punchline but I would like to be done with Sorkh Razil. Then again, I would like the U.S. to be done with Afghanistan. Maybe SR is GBT’s way of reminding us we’re at war and it’s only romantic in the fantasies of an immature mind.

    I never begrudged any president for the time they take off. Even on vacation, they are surrounded by aides and being constantly informed of what is going on.I just find it amazing how the cons throw a major hissy fit if Obama spends a week on Martha’s Vineyard or Hawaii, or takes few hours on the weekend playing golf.I am surprised the cons don’t insist on timing his bathroom breaks.

    “Obama’s destroying the country!”“And why dies he take any time off?”=“Obamacare is destroying the country!”“And why is it taking so long to get it started?”
