Now, I could go on about interention v. austerity as an economic policy, and compare and contrast how it has worked in other countries, but I’ve already explained a hundred times how the UK situation already proves that Austerity only makes it worse.
In stead, today let’s talk about consistency in visual metaphors!
If you consider the point of the stabbing metaphor to be things Obama has inflicted on America that have an effect you disagree with, then surely only Obamacare should be there. Unemployment, recession and debt (which are pretty close categories, anyway) surely should be the illness that’s being treated, and the used treatment should be labeled “stimulus”, “obamacare” and (ugh) “SPENDING!!!1”.
Also, the McCoys sure are fond of portraying the president as a bloody killer, aren’t they?

I was going to write a serious rebuttal, but then noticed “Death Panels”, and I laughed harder.
If anyone who isn’t splitting their sides from laughter at the moment wants to go point by point, be my guest. I count Two outright lies, and “abortions” is particularly hilarious, because you know. That doesn’t happen now.
Gary McCoy is an idiot, and so is the person who I reblogged this from.

agoodcartoon:

Expansion of marital rights is good for business. Or maybe the attorney would just like a break from all those straight divorces. A good cartoon.

I don’t get the “gay divorce” meme. Truth is, of course if marriage rights are extended outiside the cis-heteronorm, some of these newly empowered couples will end up divorcing. But they’ll be a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things.

Mitt Romney wasn’t a schoool kid when he attacked the other man. He was 18.
And nice touch with the band-aids on both as if the whole thing was partly both side’s fault. When it was Romney and his friends who ganged up on one guy who didn’t see it coming.
I find it weird, that not one conservative commentator so far has actually said that you kow, a assault and hate crime? That’s a very fucking nasty thing to do.

Fuck you, McCoy.
Variance in sexual orientation is a inbuilt tendency in human behaviour. A certain percentage of homosexuals, bisexual, transgender, and other variants are born in every generation.
The higher acceptance of same sex relationships has more to do with people realizing that it’s not cool to kick some people just because they’re a minority.

Two days ago I had a post showing how Glenn McCoy had copied one of his one of his own cartoons from four years ago, making only a change to the dialogue balloon.
Now we have today’s cartoon, which I immediately recognized as the exact same thing he had done earlier. Only a year ago, in fact.
I see nothing in the ‘new’ toon indicating McCoy is on vacation and they’re rerunning his old cartoons. Neither have I seen anything in the news about Obama and Israel, so I don’t know what would prompt reprinting or resubmitting this cartoon.
Is McCoy really just this lazy? Does he expect no one to catch it? Does his own syndicate ignore this, or are they unaware he’s plagiarizing himself?

This was in my MyComics collection today.
And this was in my MyComics collection on Election Day, 2008:
Now is it just me, or is there some sort of similarity between the two?

In a cosmic coincidence, the newer version makes more sense.
You know, except for the lemming metaphor, because lemmings don’t actually run off cliffs… wait. The self destructive nature of Obama’s policies and campaign are actually a myth created by corporate media? A good cartoon?
