Speaking of Worst Nightmares.

Raging PencilsI'm depressed.

Wanna know why? It's because of this crappy comic I drew over two years ago. Seemingly zillions upon zillions of people have looked at that particular cartoon over the course of the past four months. More eyeballs have beheld that damn thing than any other Raging Pencils cartoon I have ever created.

I do not understand this.

This might seem like an odd complaint but I'm honestly distressed at the distinct possibility that this might be my cow tools, my "I hate Mondays", my Dagwood sandwich, my Great Pumpkin.

In other words, I don't want to be remembered as the "Two girls, one cup" guy. I'd rather be remembered for this cartoon, or this one, or possibly even this one. But it's not up to me, is it?



Addendum 12-3-2011: I take some personal glee in the suspension of Mr. Cain's presidential bid as it was clear from his resume', which offered little in the way of governmental experience, that he was unsuitable for the position. The subsequent revelations that he was an arrogant, foul-tempered, walking gonad didn't make him any more appealing to the voting public.

However, he still has all the qualifications to be the perfect Republican Senator, so good luck with that, Mr. Cain.

One down, six to go.


And now our "Chart of the Day":

the war on christmas
Click here for a larger version.

Tis’ the Season to be jolly, or if you are the American Family Association, to construct a list of aberrant companies out to destroy Christmas. Offering up their yearly “Naughty of Nice” list, the religious-right organization is branding companies according to whether they recognize Christmas enough. If a company uses the term Christmas “on a regular basis, we consider that company Christmas-friendly,” AFA says. If a company “refers to Christmas infrequently, or in a single advertising medium,” then they’re listed as “marginal” and are bordering on delinquency. But if a company uses Christmas “sparingly in a single or unique product description, but as a company, does not recognize it,” then that company is “censoring” (or waging all out war on) Jesus’s birthday.

I know where I'm not shopping this Xmas.



Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #116 in a list of Republican job creation activities since they gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(116) 12-2-2011: The GOP just killed the payroll tax roll-back, which means they just raised taxes on anyone who gets a paycheck. This also means more money out of the pockets of the Average Joe and fewer jobs as there's less money to go around. I'll bet Speaker Boehner is just crying his eyes out.

NOTE: As a result of an unexpected wave of enthusiasm the Republican Job Creation update now has its own web site. It will remain on the RP but a web site of its own will raise its visibility on the 'net as we progress towards the critical 2012 elections. And I thank you for your support.
