    They can use those things to go after the bloated, scraggly-haired monster that’s been terrorizing the countryside.:Either that or inject him with a “sedagive.”

    I’ll take the pitchfork. The torch eventually burns away, but the pitchfork is the gift that just keeps on giving…

    Rat knows he can’t compete with the pros. So he takes the high road this time.

    Rat’s political action ranks well with what I kept hearing last week.

    You have a pitchfork and a torch. The government has an army and nuclear weapons. Sounds like a fair fight.

    While this is the common perception of the interplay of money and politics, reality is more complicated. When donors aren’t simply giving money to politicians who already have positions that line up with theirs, the money is less for “bought and paid for” than “pay to play”; the money donors give does not ensure results but merely buys access to the decision makers. That’s why incumbents, regardless of which party they belong to, gets the most donations. Money tends to follow power, not power money.

    Have some fun watching Honest Gil Fullbright for President. He and Rat can be on the same ticket.

    Hey we got rid of that idiot Harper, (GW Bush-North). I moved here to Canada in 1984 when Uncle Ronnie was Prez. I’ve been advocating for the pitch forks for years now in the Excited States of America….

    I believe that the torch represents the light shinning on Article V of the Constitution and the pitchfork represents the grassroots pushing the required 34 states to call for an amending convention to return the power and money to the states from DC. It’s about the legal and safe way back to self-governance.

    Love the blank moment in the 5th panel! It’s amazing how no words can have so much effect.

    Honesty will get you nowhere, Rat! Especially as a politician. In fact, the folks with the pitchforks and torches are more likely to come after you first rather than after the slick, lying incumbents (of either party)….

    I’d vote for Rat. He’s being honest, something you won’t see from most politicians.
