So, however long ago Wiley came up with this story, he was already betting on the (lack of) peaceful transfer of power…
And the one who was a angelic dog… becomes steaks???
We live, God learns, eh!?!
I’m half expecting this strip to be taken literally as a “historical document” and a new round of lawsuits will be filed alleging that mastodons and long-dead cavemen illegally voted for Biden. It makes as much sense as the real carp they’re pedding…
Damn, was hoping for a somewhat happier ending. Not after rainbows and butterfly but still…
Add peaceful transfer of power to the list of things Republicans* hate.
Along with accountability, democracy, blacks voting, science, facts…
The list is getting pretty long.
*Republicans are now the Party Of Trump.
Oh c’mon . . .
Nobody brings up the fact that Homer got the point!
Request for new arc: Do something about narcissism!
What happened to RESIST!? Like that was somehow “peaceful”? 4 years of a fraudulent criminal probe? 4 years of a political coup?
Whoa. Wiley’s crystal ball is right on the money.
And the moral is: The Democrats need a herd of Mammoths to stampede through the Oval Office.
Once again, certain words, spoken at the wrong moment, lead to unanticipated consequences. But then, who knew? Clairvoyants who persist beyond the soul deadening strictures of childhood conformance are rare.
Ultimately he’ll leave, but then what? In some ways Biden is coming into a pretty good deal. Anything and everything that is wrong he will just point to Trump as the cause and the press will mostly back him up. If not Trump then he’ll blame the republicans and the press will mostly back him up. Nothing will ever be his fault. The decline of the country continues, hastened a bit by the past four years, not only because of Trump but because the press threw away any pretense of being unbiased and has gone along with the democrats 4 year temper tantrum. In fact it’s been very hard to tell who’s been more outrageous, the dems or the president. I suspect Trump has the edge on that. So we’ve had four years where another pillar of society has gone the way of congress: become a joke that only people who were already inclined to believe; will believe. If there is anything in this country left to believe in, I’m not sure what it is.
The not-so-peaceful transfer of power will have nothing to do with President-elect Biden. This battle will be waged after his inauguration by Trump and his MAGA mob, and McConnell and his power brokers for the soul of the so-called Republican Party.
Trump is desperately trying to continue to control the Party and the message, by promising his minions that he’ll stage a comeback in 2024 and will continue to try to dominate the news cycle and airing grievences – real and imagined.
While McConnell will redux his stratagy blocking & stalling every move by Biden, at the same time blaming the Democrats for everything from mumps to dishpan hands!
This is now the Trumpist Party and the old school pols know it!
Sometimes negotiations break down. That’s where the Marines come in.
I was really hoping for a new age where men would let women govern and learn
Why is everyone so concerned about the transfer of power NOW? That will NOT take place until JANUARY 20, 2021 no matter how much the never-trumpers want it now!!!
He is being his PIN 10 yr old self.He will persist as long as there is someone to encourage him.
The lesson is don’t let power mad murderous crazy people take over your society.
This pointless story has become tiresome….
Sigh… I thought at least one strip keep politics out.
Probably ate his heart.
So, was this originally published just after the 2016 election???
Wiley had the same insight of Bill Maher, or anyone who was paying attention. I was doubtful that the orange turd would even lose, but I had no hope of him conceding. He’s holding out as long as he can, so he can do more damage to our democracy. I hope a long prison term is his destination when this is over.
Strikes me that God is always a real jerk to Homer in these strips. Life after life of the worst of life? Let him stay in heaven already.
MAGA (mega) Tweets (Toots). Wiley is a genius!
Evocation of “power” is clear enuf, but I don’t get what’s going thru the brutish leader’s head when he’s thinking “piece”. Piece of what? How does that inspire him to finish Homer off?
And JOB thought HE had it rough.
Megatoots? More like Magatoots.
At any rate my one and only day off was yesterday, so back to school and work for me. Long day and I took a quick look now that I’m home. No change. I’ll have no more time or energy to chat again until after classes end and I get a few days off at Christmas, but I don’t think much will change. These boards only reflect the rot in America due to mutual ignorance and hatred. Biden won. Good for him. But with the kind of hate that we all seem to have for each other I don’t think he’ll do much but re-arrange the deck chairs as the Titanic sinks. The republicans will blame the democrats for everything, the democrats will blame the republicans for everything and the ship of state will sink beneath the waves as we all curse each other. Great future to look forward too. I’ll skim the strip again, but if it goes back to a daily bashing of one side over the other I won’t follow it.
