Jerry Falwell Dead (4 cartoons!!!)

click to enlarge

When I heard the news, my head exploded with strip ideas. I couldn't decide which to do so I put them in a short series.

One of the most hateful men in America is now dead. What are politicians saying?

Dr. Falwell was a man of distinguished accomplishment who devoted his life to serving his faith and country." Sen. John McCain

How did he serve? Teaching hate and intolerance to Americans under the guise of "religion."

"An American who built and led a movement based on strong principles and strong faith has left us." Mitt Romney

We all have great respect for him." Rudy Giuliani.

Uh, Rudy, some of us don't. Do you also respect Pol Pot? David Duke? Fred Phelps maybe?

Falwell will only be missed by the worst of us and you must be one of them.

To see the all four strips in the series hit the flip.

Poor Pat

Little Pat McHenry has his knickers in a knot. The mean old libruls are out to get him, and darn it, he didn't do nothin' wrong. Just ask him. Think Progress has the next act in the unfolding drama.

CBS News recently reported that a campaign aide to Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) had been indicted on charges of voter fraud. The aide, Aaron Lay, is alleged to have “illegally cast his ballot in two 2004 congressional primary runoffs in which McHenry was a candidate.” McHenry barely won the primary campaign, in which Lay served as a political director, by a margin of just 86 votes.

I'm in the army now.

Flying Flipper

The White House is pushing to shift some of the tax burden from major airlines to smaller, private aircraft owners. And wouldn't you know it, the change is opposed by Robin Hayes. After years of marching in lock-step with King George II, Hayes has finally broken ranks.

Representative Robin Hayes, Republican of North Carolina and a private pilot, said higher taxes might discourage race-car drivers from using the Nascar fleet of private jets in his district.

Why would Flipper cross the Preznit on a policy issue like this? One reason: Greed. This proposal would take money out of Robin Hayes' own damn pocket. Too bad he wasn't working in a textile mill when it came time to vote on CAFTA.

Siege Mentality

If you ever want to understand the significance and insidiousness of James Arthur Pope and John Hood in framing political debates in North Carolina there are some articles that reveal motivation and methods in undermining progressive policies.

...perhaps it can be undermined, in the original sense of the term of creating breaches in the walls by digging underneath and using fire to collapse the tunnel.

The Pope model is a war of attrition, death by a thousand paper cuts followed by a bonfire of vanity publications to immolate the institutions against which Pope et al chafe but which bond and serve us in a free society, however flawed.
