I really went out on a limb this week going after Tom Delay, the most loathed man in Washington. If you didn’t already know, Delay was an exterminator before he entered politics to end the EPA’s ruthless campaign against hazardous pesticides.
A lot of leftie blogs and comics make fun of his prior profession, and I hope that’s not how this comic comes across. I love exterminators. They kept me hanta virus free when I lived in the slums of Baltimore, and for that I’m eternally grateful. If anyone should be offended, it’s mice and cockroaches, who haven’t done any of the despicable shit Delay has done, except for that one mouse who left a turd on my pillow.
I would’ve done this cartoon ages ago, but it wasn’t until recently that I could’ve expected a majority of people to know who the hell he is. I might even be overly optimistic in thinking that it’s any more likely now.
Hopefully Lampson’s challenge will shine enough light under DeLay’s rock that people will no longer be able to ignore how corrupt the Republican House has become in just a decade, but I doubt it. I actually believe that Delay could take a shit in a Bible on live TV and there’d still be no chance of the shitkickers in his district voting for a Democrat.
Lastly, I’d like to point out how awesome the night vision panel is.
