    This is perfect. Send it to the White House for use in messaging. (And the mainstream media, for use in self-reflection.)

  2. sod says:

    absolutely perfect.

  3. mike roddy says:

    It’s perfect except for the woman newscaster. She should be a blonde, like most of them on Fox.

  4. Will G says:

    Now that may be the best thing I’ve seen in a while.

    Eerily lifelike

    Brilliant. Thanks Joe, for bringing this smashing cartoon to our attention, and also for your tireless work. We’re utterly toast of course, but that’s no reason at all to stop doing the campaigning.

    Okay, send this perfectly brilliant cartoon to the moon now so that whoever happens by will know what happened to us when we’re gone, which at the rate we’re going should be by about next Tuesday.

    “Nobody could’ve possibly predicted this” is exactly what both W. Bush and Clinton both said after Katrina. Yeah right, nobody except anybody who watched the History, National Geographic or Discovery Channels, read intelligent publications or otherwise had a brain in their head.

    I have an idea. Let’s put doomsday atomic reactors/ nuclear economic bombs into the “clean energy” bill. Then the senate can finish off the country the rest of the way, cleanly, on behalf of corporatism.

    Oh yea, the idea has already been taken (by the three stooges of plutocracy).

    Where is my atomic bailout bucket? Must be downstairs in the floodwaters.
