    If you want to get technical about it, John Hanson was.

    If she’d just stopped at, “George W.” she’d probably have gotten credit. It was putting, “Bush” in that messed things up.

    Actually, Maria just wrote “W.” She wasn’t sure how to spell George.

    Still wrong; the correct answer would have been Dick Cheney.

    Actually, even the UN had to admit that Iraq still had stuff.

    The UN itself found a quantity of phosgene gas in Iraqi hands during a late 1990s inspection tour. The gas was sent back to a laboratory operated by the UN, where it was promptly lost for a full decade until a janitor found the container while helping to pack the facility up for relocation.
    []
    As you can imagine, more than a few conspiracy theories were launched by this news, since people came to suspect that the UN knew where the phosgene was the entire time and kept it hidden so that we couldn’t claim Hussein was in violation of the bans.

    What’s more, shortly after we took Iraq at least one group of militants tried to turn a mustard gas shell into an IED; it was tripped, but didn’t work because the gas had deteriorated.

    And how does that relate at all to today’s strip, which is a gag based on Maria’s life span? Oh that’s right, it doesn’t. Just because Bush’s name comes up in a comic, it doesn’t make it a license to turn the comments political.

    And yes, I know, “free speech” and “I don’t have to read the comments if I don’t like what people are saying”.

    However, I like this comic, and I like the commentary that is related to the gag that John and Scott originally wrote. Therefore, when I get to your comment, which is right near the beginning of the list, I vomit a little in my mouth, because you decided to turn an innocent joke into political commentary.

    And now I apologize for going off…

    And now to get back to the comic, this means that the first president was actually Jimmy Carter. Anyone care to debate me?

    Sure we knew they had the gas. Reagan sold it to Him hoping he would use it against Iran.(Iraq was our friend then) He used it against his own Kurd s. (That turned him into an enemy).

    Sure I’ll debate….everyone knows the first president was Truman but the first we remember was Ike. LOL

    If we go by my personal experiences, the first person to discover America was me and my mom. We drove across the Peace Bridge and discovered Buffalo New York.

    Why do people still call them “theories” when they are conspiracy ideas? They are not proven. Until then don’t give them the added heft of calling them “theories.” No wonder the USA is so far down in education and an informed population.
