It’s been a while since I did a bona fide political cartoon. The reason is because lately the only political opinion I’ve had is “We’re still in Iraq? Seriously? For reals?! Fuck that shit.” And it’s getting really tough to put a comedic spin on that sentiment. If I can’t make them funny, or at least slap some dick jokes on them, how are my lame-ass opinions any different from the chatty, unfunny liberals you run into everyday?
I have many opinions that have yet to make it into the cartoon. That’s because I haven’t found a way to make them funny. For instance, I think everyone who voted for Bush in 2004 should be blasted into space on NASA’s remaining space shuttles. Although they won’t admit to it today, there’s enough of those assholes to give Earth a shiny new ring of dumbassery.
We need to end this quagmire if I’m to return to my bread and butter of mocking fundamentalists, bad science, and the insipid world of pop culture. Until then, it will be bits of randomness interspersed with more and more harping from yours truly.
