Worst Super-Hero Ever: Congress-Man

A great cartoon from Non-Sequitur by Wiley.

It’s a bit long, so I’m putting the rest of it below the jump:

Yes, it should probably be GOP Congress-Man, but they’d never run that on the comics page, would they?

    I assume that between leaving the scene of the disaster and arriving to form the comittee, he’ll recharge on cash by attending a few fundraisers on the way. After all, one would not expect Popeye to take on Bluto without first eating his spinach.
    The thought of a Republican Congressman acting without a huge cash infusion first just isn’t credible. Nor is it reasonable. The Kochs and the bankers can’t be expected to bear this cost on their own. I would chip in myself, if only I still had a job….

    (Video) In China, cracks are appearing – in the neighbourhood of the massive Three Gorges Dam, the country’s great prestige project, and also in the Great Internet Firewall of China, enabling the ominous news to leak out. Three years ago stories were already emerging in the Chinese media about landslides, ecological deterioration and accumulation of algae further down the river. And less and less effort seems to be made to plug the leaks.

    Recent media reports tell of a series of landslips, minor earthquakes and cracks appearing in roads and buildings along the central section of the Yangtse, between the dam and the city of Chongqing. Almost 10,000 “dangerous sites” have been identified, but many of the people living near them cannot be relocated for lack of money.

    The dam was hailed as an engineering feat that could withstand the worst flood in 100 years. But this year’s torrential rains have severely tested its capacity to control the surging Yangtze.

    Yes it should be GOP Congress-Man because we all know where all the opposition really comes from BUT just because a climate bill will be unpopular with the anti-science GOP carnival barkers does not mean that Democrats should not try…unless they are not really convinced of the dire need for such a bill. Silence from the Democrats, and especially from the leader of the party, is worse than unacceptable and threatens their credibility.
