Keeping an eye on you for Halloween!
For help on how to follow a comic title,
Democrats have nothing to win in the impeachment. The election will not be reversed. Unless Pence goes down with Trump which, until recently, seemed extremely unlikely. Until his Ukraine connections surfaced (at Trump’s lips, nonetheless), he was pretty much a lapdog, pretty much guaranteed to be 46 if impeachment succeeded. But I still think Pence will survive.
Republicans are the ones to gain from impeachment. It is their last chance to keep a Republican in the White House.
Smart Democrats (like Nancy) always felt we had a better shot at the ballot box rather than in a Senate where the votes were already decided.
After all the corruption Mueller uncovered, you’d think there would have been an impeachment then. But we knew the outcome then just the same as now. Nancy made it clear, she’d rather wait.
But a man who never had to pay the consequences for anything he ever did wrong just took that as proof that he could get away with even more.
It’s always been “as if” Trump is the one who wants to be impeached.
Just think of the ratings he’s getting.
And don’t forget, those rallies…
The man, he sure muffed it
Sitting on his tuffet
Chasing the Kurds away…
Trump has turned us into a third world nation.
And while the world – and the American people – used to laugh AT Trump, they’re not laughing any more.
Even Republicans are starting to get worried at what Trump has done to their party, let alone the nation.
Just ask Lindsey and Mitch.
Trump may well be the coffin nail in the Republican party.
And I do not rejoice over that.
Probably one of the better ’toons by Stantis / Allee.
Perhaps it’s because they think she really did win in 2016. And if it weren’t for the mandated gerrymandering of the Electoral College, in fact, she did win. This, in spite of one of the poorest election campaigns run by anyone I have ever seen.
I like something that Tyge said earlier. And with that, I will wax a little political for now.
His comment had to do with two different sets of business skills: Benevolence vs. Ruthlessness.
Methinks a wedge between Republicans and Democrats (in normal times, and these are hardly normal times) is that business can go either way – but usually not both.
Democrats get upset when they see business get “ruthless” while Republicans get upset when they see regulations trying to push back from “ruthless” back to “benevolent.”
That’s when we get called “socialists” – which is truly strange because no one in our camp talks about seizing the means of production away from capitalists, just trying to make sure that the rest of our “boats float,” not just theirs…
Just food for thought, not calling anyone names, looking for a way that two sides might be able to get together and work things out someday.
Heaven knows, I don’t dare post this on Prickly City!
Not wanting to sound like a parrot, but I had the same thoughts before Mordy’s comment became visible.
Twelve-squared, methinks you’re way off today. Among other things, as I have commented elsewhere on this page, even when Les is not “number one,” he still places ahead of Gunther every time. Good guys always finish last.
And your comments above, calling Gunther “goody two shoes,” then enumerating his handicaps, including his mother, show the very thing that we are frustrated with: The goodest of the good are meant to be doormats for the more popular characters in this strip.
Including Irma. And while we’re at it, let’s marry her off to the certainly mysterious and, still not refuted, possibly nefarious Mr. Al, the third member of the notorious Ann Clan.
Has Les improved? Possibly. Probably. But he is still a far cry from someone I’d want my daughter to be with.
He’s still a far cry from someone I’d want my son to be with.
Which is why I’m still steamed that Irma actually agreed to this situation between Gunther and Les.
Many versions of the song, all with slightly different lyrics. Leadbelly wrote the song. And the version you present is pretty close to Leadbelly’s.
Do you listen to WFMT’s Midnight Special?
(Did you see that? “What” that a typo – “Was” that a typo)
“Benevolence of ruthlessness” – with “f” right next to “r” on the keyboard, I can’t help but ask, what that a typo?
Jury’s still out on how good that was, Gunther coming back from Peru.
Without Bets, most folks on this blog were praying for him to be shipped back!
