Herman Cain recently quoted Pokemon, again. It’s sort of admirable that he didn’t cop out and say some advisor or intern or something chose the quote for him. He straight up admits to a love of the Pokemon song. He says he memorized the whole thing.
Closet Pokemon fan that he is, Cain had a few last words for his ardent supporters.
BULLETIN TIME, MOTHER-F’EEEEERSSSSS
DALLAS. FRIDAY. BILLIARD BAR. 9 PM. TONS OF ARTISTS. TONS OF ADAM WARROCKS. ME. CHRIS. BOOZE. THE VARIANTS. OH GOD. CHARITIES. ART. WORDS. YES. YOU.
The folks at The Idiot Box podcast did a live version of our Walking Dead strip! Go check it out there! They nailed it.
Sale continues in our store. We’re currently out of books, but we still got t-shirts and prints, and remember: ask us about commissions and original strip art at firstname.lastname@example.org.
They already know everything about us. You know, them.
I used to think about running for office. Seriously. Sometimes, I still do. It’s the kind of thought that’s brought on by watching the West Wing, reading any good rhetorical author. Those times when you remember what the point of America is supposed to be and then you feel like it’s up to you to keep it that way.
Then I think about the time I wrote a comic where Iron Man pushes a button with his dick.
1. We did a piece at Comics Alliance – Metropolis’ Man on the Street Clark Kent asks the question: What’s your greatest Christmas wish?
2. There is no #2. You’ve always been #9.
Though better suited to vote intelligently than many Americans because of his education and interest in civic duty, the young immigrant is still ineligible; he won’t be deported after Obama’s recent announcement of deferral, but citizenship is still a ways off. He decides the next best thing is to engage in campaigning, and chooses Obama over the candidate that would make his life hell under the euphemism of “self-deportation.” A good cartoon.
(Note: Got a similar submission from christopherkeelty, but this was already in the queue. Just wanted to recognize him.)
Crazed obsession over tacky and overt displays of “patriotism” causes America to ignore the explosive problems right behind it. If ignored, America will be unable to enjoy the results of its labor (the cake must have taken considerable effort) or may become seriously harmed. A Good Cartoon.
