I think his "admittedly left-leaning" cartoons this week are hilarious, but I am an "admittedly left-leaning" citizen.

The guy draws one template and weekly fills in the blank with MSNBC talking points. I stopped reading them after the first two since it was apparent there was nothing original or unique about them. I can rip on Republicans with the best of them, but it never even got a chuckle out of me.

Oh come on....of the things you and I can agree on, Palin's ineptness has got to be one of them. Even most of my Republican friends agree with this. She may be "folksy" and plainspoken, but that did not qualify her to be VP and/or a reliable source of factual information. Even Fox can see the light of day on this one. At least two of these were funny...and accurate.

Of course Palin is inept, Susan, but this guy's stuff is pathetic to say the least. Markus is correct and picking on Fox News or Palin while incredibly unoriginal and only shows that Mr. Riley is capable of producing nothing more than pedestrian shots at low hanging fruit, nothing which has not already been said elsewhere countless times.

"She may be "folksy" and plainspoken, but that did not qualify her to be VP" One of the things that was utterly baffling was when McCain picked her to be his running mate. That one act ensured the campaign was a guaranteed loser. It also became much more apparent that the powers that be will do anything to ensure their pick gets elected. If it wasn't clear to anyone paying attention the voters are mere pawns in an extravagant scheme, that should have removed any doubt. When John Roberts handed down his Obamacare opinion to the shock of everyone, you really had to wonder what they had on him. Same with McCain. Why would Roberts go against principles he had openly espoused and why would McCain pick the most polarizing person on the planet to be VP? As an unabashed conspiracy theorist, stuff like this only adds fodder to increasing evidence that the banksters, lawyers (politicians) and corporatists run this country and the world the way they want. The idea that citizens have any influence left particularly at the federal level is just perpetuated by the talking heads who distract us by pitting the "right" and the "left" against one another on a daily basis while the government has their hands in both pockets with a gun to our head.

I remember the morning well. I started the computer, read one article, and emailed my dad saying "McCain just gave Obama the election". I don't know what he was thinking, but I have read and watched "Game Change". Being as two of the top staffers to McCain/Palin contributed quite a bit to the book, I would have to say that I'm not sure McCain had much to do with the decision. Ultimately, it falls on his shoulders so I am surprised he was so sloppy, though. Half of the left was unhappy that Clinton lost the primary, so I am sure that a woman was appealing and he wanted someone to bring in the uber-Conservatives, but the vetting process was completely botched. Admittedly I do not go for the conspiracy theories, I'll leave that to you but the "gun to our head" reference again? I am not aware of any state that executes people for not paying taxes, but I'll have to look that up. ;)

Randy, I will admit that some of these leave me scratching my head, but I'll not apologize for finding these funny...even if they were low hanging fruit.

"Admittedly I do not go for the conspiracy theories, I'll leave that to you but the "gun to our head" reference again?" Government has a monopoly on force. They enforce their monopoly with guns. Try not paying your taxes and see what eventually happens.

Markus, it's pretty clear why the GOP (not McCain, mind you) chosen Palin to be his running mate and there was no conspiracy involved. McCain is old and, much like Romney, was not conservative enough to appease the neo-cons that have taken over the party so they went with the spunky young woman who they thought could appeal to a wider base of voters. It is really one of the most condescending things I've witnessed in national politics. It was a simple act of desperation, nothing more.

Stevie Wonder facing Nolan Ryan would have a higher batting average than this guy.
Randy Marsh February 04, 2013 at 05:44 PM
I think Susan and I agree on this one.
