I have deliberately not been political lately because I am just so disgusted with the whole thing these days.  Democrats are too nice.  There, I said it.  When the Republicans had control of everything, we played nice and tried to help the country because it was the right thing to do.  When the Democrats have control, the Republicans are hideous.  I really think that no matter what Obama said or did, they would be against it just because he said it.  Even if it agreed with their principles.  Even if they knew it was right.

And for some unknown reason, Republicans are known as the religious ones!  How is it moral to act like this?  How is it moral to think it’s ok to let the poor go down the drain?  The Bible goes on and on about being kind to the poor and the Republicans just gloss over that part (be nice to the who?  The rich?  OK, God…)  And they are so horrible to gay people.  They treat them like second class citizens.  It blows my mind that the religious party has so little concern for those less fortunate.

Not to mention, that President Obama is not afforded the same courtesy, the same politeness, the same… dignity that other Presidents have been.  The attacks on him are both vicious and racist.  It’s come to the point n my life where if I hear someone badmouthing Obama, I KNOW, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are racist.  And this makes me sad.

I am also weirded out that the Republicans and the Tea Partiers are so… not intellectual.  Where’s the curiosity about the world?  Where’s the ability to answer questions outside of the tiny little box of questions you studied?  Where’s the ability to think for themselves?

I’ve become so jaded.  This is not who I want to be, but I cannot help it.  I cannot STAND most conservatives (my church family notwithstanding).  A little kindness, a little less herd mentality  from a Republican would be so… inspirational.  Too bad I’ll probably never see it in my lifetime.

My sister and my dad are both going to the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert rallies in Washington DC on the thirtieth.  Oh, how I wish I could go!  My sister has agreed to be CBW’s roving reporter and give us the scoop–from a local’s POV.  I am so excited!

In other news, sorry about the delay in toons lately.  I have been having some health problems myself.  I am 90% certain it’s nothing to worry about (except for being totally annoying), but the 10% of me that is a worrier, wishes I’d get diagnosed and fixed, already, and be done with it!  My son is almost completely healed from his surgery, which was a resounding success.

We’ll keep on keepin’ on…





So go VOTE!  Whether you are Democrat or Republican (but ESPECIALLY if you are Democrat–now’s not the time to get complacent!) go and vote.  People have fought and died for your right to do it.  Remember, if the lines are long at the polls, it’s ALWAYS worth sticking around.  If you’re willing to stand in line for an amusement park ride, then why not for something as important as this?  Bring a book, bring a snack, find a sitter, and vote.

Now that that elephant in the room has been thoroughly dealt with for the moment, I thought I’d mention a few things.  My cartoon today is something my sister said tonight on the phone (not my sister who sometimes comments here, but my OTHER sister, who shall not be named.)  I thought it was funny, so I scrapped my original cartoon and literally finished this one about two minutes before I posted it.  Gotta love web publishing! 

My original cartoon started with Eve waking Manny up to vote, and commenting about how scary it is that the country is stuck in the hands of the undecided voters.  How in the world can anybody still be undecided at this point?  The next panel showed a crowd of undecided zombie Sheeple that scare Owen (Must pull random levers!  Must vote for something!) The third panel shows Manny with a shotgun (kill the brain, kill the ghoul my son).  The last panel ends with it all being a dream, and Manny wakes up in bed with Eve who tells him it’s election day and mentions how scary it is to be stuck in the hands of the undecided voters… 

For anyone who thinks that sounds funnier than the cartoon I actually posted–it wasn’t.  I had a hard time drawing the crowd of Sheeple, and I thought it was kind of violent (and rioting in the streets isn’t, I suppose) which is why I was willing to scrap it.  But I did like the scenerio, which is why I wrote it out.  I mean, that’s not a cartoon I’m EVER going to be able to reuse again.  It was either write it out or scrap it forever, so this works for me.

Remember to take a picture or make a note of how low your gas prices are today.  As of last night, ours were at $2.39 a gallon.  If my theory holds true, we should start seeing them shoot back up rather quickly starting on Wednesday.  By next Tuesday, they should be sky-high again.  I hope I’m wrong, but it’s a phenomenon that I notice with every election.  The relief this time has been much more noticable though, because of how very high gas prices got in the last year.

Go Obama, go Obama, go Obama, GO!!!!!
