    Who says Liberals can’t learn from Conservatives?

    Crooks are crooks, no matter the party. Nixon, Clinton, etc. I think they have a parasitic relationship with each other. Must be why they all change parties whenever it suits them to do so. Surely can’t be based on any principle…

    And we keep electing them…I think we’re all mad.

    @Orion-13, How did you go from reading today’s strip to a rant on crooked party changing politicians?

    Last week, Jeff had a brush with reality (Leo) and found himself ignored as simply not pertinent to anything. Now, in a strip about political reality, Jeff butts into the last panel offering to support his father with his imaginary “foundation.”

    It’s unthinkable that Trudeau would make progressive ideas dependent on Jeff’s fantasy. That would immediately turn everything Rick wrote—-or the Huffington Post itself—-into fantasy as well, equivalent to Roland Hedley and Faux News.

    I want to see Jeff meet Duke’s son. They seem like the same person.

    I’m surprised that Rick has never made it to the “talking head” shows – he’s loosely based on Bob Woodward who has never had a problem getting on TV

    Rick might as well write for Subversify magazine instead. At least the staff don’t make any money either. (Yes, that’s a blurb for Subversify magazine, and, yes, I do write for it.)

    Watch this – Pay the Writer by Harlan Ellison.

    I am building my photography business and you would be surprised how many times people offer “exposure” Exposure doesn’t pay the bills or replace equipment or buy necessary things. If I wanted exposure, I can do it myself (pun intended).

    I don’t know about America, but hereabouts (and in most other countries I know of) the average person who doesn’t have a war chest of funds has no chance of success in electoral politics in any case.

    Jeff should hang out with the Zits kid — they are about as insufferable.

    It’s a tough world when the people who know haven’t had the balls to keep the people who just buy and sell from taking over…newspapers, government, insurance, housing…banking…military…and maybe you wonder what happened to honor and honesty? sorry, no place to stick the price tag…reep jerks who live on the “run it like a business” and the dumdims who always kill the Goose…(‘society’) that lays the Golden Eggs…like Mitt, in his ‘arbitrage’ business in the 80s and 90s…poor old Jeff…he’s watching his Dad fight the narrow mercantile criminals…

    Criticism is fair game, and part of the job. The reason most of us don’t run for high political office – the necessity to sell your soul to donors to build the kind of election war chest needed to get elected. As long as we allow weathy individuals and businesses, especially large corporations, to make large donations to political campaigns, we ensure that those same wealthy individuals and businesses disproportionately have the ear of elected officials, who use those generous donations to “manage” the electorate through advertising.I’m a strong believer in democracy, and in exercising the right to vote. But when, as is the case federally in the US, both serious candidates have likely been bought by large donors, you can excuse voters for being cynical. A lot of that cynicism also comes from decades of negative campaigning, which is fundamentally a strategy of voter suppression – attempting to make your opponent’s supporters dissatisfied, or simply confused, so they don’t bother voting – rather than attempting to rally voters to your cause.

    We used to use to old lever or switch system in NY until recently. I wouldn’t bother turning a lever if I felt none of the candidates deserved my vote. But I always vote, even if I don’t vote for anybody.

    I’ve had exposure for years, and have yet to have a paying offer. But at least it’s better than a vanity press.

    I think Huffington belongs to a third party: the Moneycraticans.
