Art, politics, angels, demons . . . and righteous dogs.

Zombie Summit

The corpse of Harry Truman has reportedly been so pissed-off by Obama’s tongue-tied, puny-spirited defense of his first two highly accomplished two years in office, that it dragged itself across the country and showed up at the White House last night. “Goddammit, it said.  What’s the matter with you?”

“Carry the battle to them. Don’t let them bring it to you. Put them on the defensive and don’t ever apologize for anything.”
Say: “It’s plain hokum. If you can’t convince ’em, confuse ’em. It’s an old political trick. But this time it won’t work. ”
Say: “To hell with them. When history is written they will be the sons of bitches – not I.

    That’s a beauty Mr. Brodner. Talk about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. There really seems to be something pathologically wrong with Dems and with Obama. It makes me think of the Stockholm Syndrome where the captives become defensive and supportive of their captors. It’s like a spell is cast and Dems become light headed and fearful and they don’t remember what it is they are about. If they were ever sincere about what they were/are about in the first place.

    There’s so much talk about an enthusiasm gap when it comes to getting out Dem voters. I think many potential voters are wondering what the point is when so many elected Dems lose their bearings and start muttering and glancing around with pointless trepidation about…everything!

    Dems are constantly pulling their punches because if they aren’t nice to their teapubco peers, then the teapubs will say mean things about them. They can’t figure out why the teapubs continue to say mean things even though they’ve really bent over backwards to try to be friends.

    That piece is Brodner through and through, but I hope you don’t mind if I pay the compliment of sensing Ralph Steadman when I first saw it. My first thought was that it was the pissed off spirit of Hunter Thompson, come back from the grave to pummel Obama. Have you ever met Mr. Steadman? Seems like you guys would be kindred spirits.

    As always, thanks for the wonderful art. It certainly captures my own disillusionment with the wimpy Dems.

    Sometimes the Steadman vocabulary is there for you. Always happy when the spirit arrives. Yep, we’re friendly and I am a lifer in his cheering section. Thanks JB.
