Cartoon Commentary Thread

A very cool reader recently suggested that I set up the Rallblog to allow people to post their comments about it. I’m in the middle of revamping this site, but I’m not sure this is a good idea. As an interim test, however, I’m going to post a few cartoons and see how it goes. So here’s Thursday’s cartoon. If you have something to say, post your comment here. I’ll post Saturday’s toon up as well.

    That’s like taking testimony from Alberto Gonzales and expecting it to be true.

    That’s like confirming a Bush appointee to the Supreme Court and expecting him to allow precedents to stand.

    That’s like putting neocons in office and expecting them to follow the constitution.

    That’s like putting a pharma-exec in charge of the Pentagon and expecting him to run wars.

    I got a million of ’em!

    That’s like giving an NSA job to John Poindexter and expecting your personal information to be safe.

    That’s like reading Michelle Malkin and expecting logic.

    That’s like appearing on O’Reilly and thinking you will get a chance to call Billo on his lies before they cut off your mike.

    I can do this all night!

    That’s like bombing a country, disbanding their army and police force, knocking off their leader and expecting his country to thank you for it.

    That’s like watching Tony Snow to get the inside scoop.

    That’s like…

    If Al Qaeda in forming in Pakistan, Why are’t our armed forces? Should’nt we be grabbing our #1 enemy by the nose and kicking the snot out of them? Instead we are in Iraq?

    TheDon isn’t just a master blogger…he’s a budding White House speechwriter!

    I bet 1600 Penn Ave pays better, though!

    It wouldn’t matter if they were the one true AQ, they represent only 5% of the forces the US is engaging in Iraq. Bush is pissing in our boots and saying it’s raining.

    That’s like expecting Bush to quit acting like a hick and reveal the Ivy League brat he really is.

    White House speech writer, huh? Imagine getting paid to write lines like “And there’s a good reason they are called al Qaeda in Iraq. They are al Qaeda. In Iraq.” No fact checkers. No shades of gray. Tony Snow will sneeringly defend whatever you make W say. Cushy wing-nut welfare job waiting for you at the end.

    My job should be so easy.

    I would take a contract job for the resignation speeches.

    “My fellow Americans, I would like to start this historic speech with an apology…”

    I’d write that one for free!

    Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?

    A: Go f* yourself, Senator!

    I, too, was amazed by that segment of Bush’s speech, but for a different reason. What always shocks me is the Prez’s ability to make a statement like that WITHOUT taking any responsibility, making any apology, or even recognizing the reality that if there had been no invasion there would be neither the “Al Qaeda in Iraq” group nor any normal/standard/old-school Al Qaeda in Iraq, whether they are a threat to America or not.

    Jxc is only half right – he’s not pissing in OUR boots and saying it’s raining – he’s pissing in HIS OWN.
