Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for May 24, 2015
Barack Obama: Got a great idea... Advisor: They'll hate it, sir. Barack Obama: But... Advisor: Waste of time. Barack Obama: But on the merits... Advisor: Sir, the merits have never mattered. Nor the facts. Nor the public good. Nothing will ever change. If you're for it it, the republicans are against it. Even if it's something they used to support, like mandates for background checks or cap and trade! Opposing everything you say or do is all they stand for now. That's the brand! Barack Obama: That can't literally be true. Let's try this: today I'll announce that the sky is blue. Rick: Leader McConnell, is the sky blue? Mitch McConnell: I'm not a meteorologist.
