    I gotta get this off my chest. These kinds of arbitrary shots, to me, are one of the main reasons why conservative comic strips often just aren’t funny. You can criticize substantive things about Moore that actually have to DO with Moore -- being loose with (some) facts, being somewhat sellout-ish, using dishonest editing at times….heck, even mock his weight if you wanna go the low route. At least it would actually based on something.
    But stuff like "cold, hostile, bereft of humanity’ is just glib verbiage that doesn’t have anything to do with Moore’s real-life demeanor, and so it just falls flat as a joke.

    It’s like someone saying, “Boy, you’re a bundle of nerves today. Kind of like Ann Coulter on a sugar high.” Ann Coulter is not known for having a nervous demeanor, so the comment would be meaningless.

    The most glaring example I know of was when Sarah Palin referred to Rachel Maddow as sometimes turning beet red when she gets angry, and the audience laughed. That crack had nothing to do with Rachel Maddow at all. She might as well have replaced Maddow’s name with Rita Moreno or Taylor Swift. It would have made the same amount of sense. Maddow is not known for having an angry demeanor, like, ever. If you wanted to call her smug, or condescending, or snide, I might not think it’s quite fair, but at least you’d be responding to something that’s actually THERE.

    I find that conservative humor tends to do this kind of thing a lot.

    I just wanted to point out that this comic is the one and only place I have ever seen any reference to “beanie-weanies.” Thus it has puzzled me since I was a kid. What on earth are beanie-weenies? I have NEVER heard of them anywhere else.

    Happy to see this turn up here! But are these new episodes, or reruns of old ones?

    I can think of a difference. At my old apartment, which had a small garden right outside the bathroom window, I can’t ever recall a two-inch-long living booger crawling into the house and making itself at home on the shower wall.

    They look like they genuinely had no idea what they were singing about.

    Indeed——beautiful drawing.

    Who wouldn’t want to talk in front of such a beautifully rendered field?

  8. JLG GoComics Pro Member commented on Frank Blunt 20 days ago

    This is hilarious.

    He ain’t buyin’ it…

    Provocative question aside, this is a beautifully rendered and compelling image.
