4. Here's what's best about that strip:

In the last frame, it shows how Obama was stuck with them after Bush appointed them - can you imagine Obama's look when he realized that the two most oustpoken haters of Social Security were in charge of a commission to save money? It's like finding out that Al Capone is in charge of your liquor warehouse, LOL!

7. Really?

Well in that case, they were the right men for the job, yessiree!

Can you believe how unrealistic those Firebaggers are who say that they were not the perfect pick? I think the Firebaggers are actually paid Republican shills, actually, taking their orders from Karl Rove's playbook.

8. yep. We all know the only reasonable thing to do is co-opt the GOP agenda but

throw a few scraps to the base to keep them "locked down."
