Hello Cool Cats and Kitties!

patreonYes, I'm still badgering you for support of my little 'toon using Patreon. That's because you're liberals and liberals hate to be told what to do, famous for your catlike unherdability. Frankly, I prefer that kind of orneriness in a reader base but it means I'll have to continue to bug you for at least another cartoon cycle or two. Or twenty.

If you were all more hidebound this would be a cinch as conservative's fall in line like the slavering dogs they are. If I really wanted to make some serious money from a webcomic all I'd have to do is take a conservative viewpoint and slag the Democrats every dang day. No one would actually read the comic, of course, but I'd still get plenty of "grant money" from Freedomworks, the same Koch-financed guys who buy truckloads of Ann Coulter's books to boost her sales numbers on Amazon and then recycle them as the greasy, itchy kind of toilet paper you find in highway truck stops.

Right-wing cartoons are also easier to create because I'd never be asked to cite references. They'd never question new information that doesn't conflict with their limited worldview so I could draw cartoons of a teenaged Barack Obama playing strip Twister with Pol Pot or show Palestinians using children as shields and them good old wingnuts would just go "I knowed it! They's all in league with Satan!"

But I'd never do that. I have enough trouble sleeping at night as it is. Speaking of which....



n case you're still confused Patreon, here's a video about how it works.


The point of today's cartoon is the Republican Party needs to change it's name to the Jack Squat Party because all they do jack squat. In fact, the current Republican-led Congress is less squat-intensive than any Congress in history.

Case in point, here's a popular infographic making the rounds lately, indicating the total lack of squat in Congress's legislative jack between now and November 5th, a schedule developed by the Jack Squat Party itself. Cushy gig, eh?
