    If we used electricity with each of the lying politicians, we would have to bring the electric chair and a power plant.

    Regarding Pig’s statement in the last panel, most politicians are already revolting.

    Man. I can’t really think of any politician who would not be fried if they took a jolt every time they lied regardless of political affiliation (though some are obviosly worse than others). This seems like the premise of a great video with the Ramones playing “Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment” as some of the most blatant lies of our leaders are displayed for public consumption…..

    It would work on some politicians, but not all. One party is good at “Volt Suppression”.

    Sorry folks, but that’s all wishful thinking… Modern defibs don’t do anything with (physically) healthy people. Way too secure….

    Politicians are the epitome of the walking dead: no conscience, no brain, no soul, no feeling.

    Of course, we would give them all fair warning before attaching it. Then they could retire, reform, or re-fry.

    He has incentives. There are large portions of the electorate who don’t like being told the truth. It upsets them.

    See that many commenters do not like politicians. Perhaps it is time for some of those to run for office and correct what they see is wrong . May the force be with you ! ;-) … Croc Power !

    I believe the defibrilator of the cheeto has the shape of a chair, and he is tied to it while using it, but is intended for one use only

    A de”fib”ulator wouldn’t work on the Cheeto in chief. You’d need a de”whopper”ulator, super sized.

    If only Pig’s ideas, no matter how ridiculous, could be put to use. (I also wish to say this about myself: I consider myself conservative, though I am not happy with what we’ve had as ‘leadership’ from any side of our politics in the last thirty years. I often feel like one of the very few Pee on the right who even reads comics anymore, if comments are anything to go by. That includes the only two editorial cartoonists I follow here.)
