Assassination "joke" in Sunday's Day by Day cartoon?


You be the judge, but that's how I took it. He's not even trying to be funny, he's trying to foment right-wing rebellion.

Is this a job for the Secret Service? Or is Muir such a known wacko that no one gives a fuck?

4. No. But I thought comics were supposed to be funny?

I think it's a common saying when someone is heated and holding what could be considered a weapon.

5. WTF?
This kind of encapsulates my problem with right-wing comics (Mallard Filmore does it too), they're so busy ranting about politics (and this is just a nest of lies and bigotry) that they forget to be funny. Be funny first, worry about making your point second.

As for the joke, it's a pretty common expression when someone's getting into rant territory. My SO has said it to me numerous times.

6. Uh....yeah.
That's the lamest thing I've seen in a while.

He should have made the black guy Michael Steele, and had him talk in outdated hiphop slang.

13. It's a RW comic strip, what do you expect?
But I don't think that he's advocating assassinating the president. It's just a RW laundry list of complaints, not funny, but also not deadly.

15. I think the female character is afraid that her insane wingnut boyfriend...
...is about to plunge the knife into her then feast on her entrails.

...as she very well should be.

16. This just sounds like insane douchebag Libertarian ranting.
Not a single BIT of it, by the way, has happened in reality.

And here's the clincher:

"I have no party to represent me".

AH, yes. The neo-Fascist Republican who's ashamed to ADMIT he's a neo-Fascist Republican. "I'm TOTALLY against Bewsh" while standing in absolute accordance with his shitty economics and "foreign policy". Classic.
