Offensivest. Comic. Evar.

Not really, but it is pretty ridiculous. Bill Garner is a conservative wacko cartoonist for the Washington Times. He's kind of the right-wing's answer to Michael Moore, only without the sense of humor. That's right, a sense of humor is not a prerequisite for Republican cartoonists. Anywho, his comics are always offensive to me, so I'm never surprised, but I saw this one hanging on a cube at work the other day. It depicts the protests at the Republican National Convention. From what I can tell, in attendance are homosexuals, Bill Clinton, Osama bin Laden, and a chicken:

The implication being that gays, lesbians, and Bill Clinton are no better than Osama bin Laden and random barnyard animals. Nice. Real mature there, Billy.

I understand why the comparisons amongst Osama, Bill and homosexuals are offensive, but I have to agree about the chickens. Chickens are evil. Tasty, but evil.

If you listen to Dennis Hastert of Dick Cheney, voting for Kerry is what Osama wants. I wonder how they know. They must be good friends with Osama. They have let him roam free for the past Three years since 9/11.

I agree about the chickens. Very tasty, Very evil. Call Austin Powers to save the day.

I also see Hagaar the Horrible. I'm glad to see he could attend too. Never underestimate the rights of a fictional, cartoon barbarian. I wonder if Sally Forth is somewhere in the back - I always pegged her to be a lesbian.

I thought Sally Forth was married with kids and stuff? I think you must mean Cathy. Cathy was always hopeless with men, now we know why.

Did somebody say chicken? Well bring on the barbecue sauce.

Just because a girl has bad luck with men, it doesn't mean she's a lesbian. Even though she may begin to think it'd be easier if she were a lesbian...

Yeah, what is Hagar doing in there?

I'm thinking either (a) Garner is comparing the property-destroying Seattle 99 crowd to GOPCon 04 demonstrators by showing a pillaging Viking in their midst ...

or, more insidiously, ...

(b) it's a sly dig at Islam, by way of Islam's founding in Genesis 21 by Ishmael, the son of Abraham and his slave woman. Her name, of course, was Hagar.

Maybe not, though. Although this is the first I've heard of this Garner fellow, judging by this piece of work he doesn't really seem all that bright.

love the blog,

(more from ebohls)

Of course, not that the Bible mentions the founding of Islam per se. It's just that the Qur'an, which of course talks about Abraham and Isma'il a lot, doesn't ever mention Hagar by name, is why I went with the Bible here and not the Qur'an.

Genesis 21:17-18 gives us "What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not ... for I will make him a great nation" rather than the oblique references to Hagar running around Safa & Marwa in Qur'an 2.158.

Sorry for my Christian bias showing through here.

still love the blog,

Wow, you a much more erudite commentor then we tend to get on planetdan. You can quote both the Bible and the Qur'an. I quoted Seinfeld once.

DAN!!???? I am addicted - and started my own BLOG (which is still empty - lol)
No new entry for today??

I need my fix............ugh

Look at Dan pulling out his vocabulary. I like to see it. I think I quoted Popeye once. That was embarrassing.

By Blogger hot babe, at 4:22 PM  

Oh Hot Babe! Stop pretending and just make the switch. Then you can cut your hair, wear jeans, buy a wallet on a chain and quote Popeye all you want.

"Y'I am what Y'I am." Popeye or Hotbabe?

Erudite? Thanks, Dan, but you're too kind. Re-reading my posts above, frankly I sound like a lunatic.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

love the comments,

If it were a "choice," then I would have already switched teams since men just seem to annoy, disappoint, & generally suck for the most part. Regardless, I couldn't bear to get a mullet & drive a truck. But if I could "choose" to become one of the lipstick variety...but, alas, its not a choice.

By Blogger hot babe, at 6:16 PM  

also, all lesbians wear belly shirts.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:46 PM  

I'm not saying you are choosing women over men, what I am saying is you ARE choosing to stay in the closet.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7:07 AM  

Sounds like your transferring your own closet clostrophobia onto me. Good luck with all that.

By Blogger hot babe, at 12:57 PM  

My my my. Seems someone has struck a nerve with hotbabe. Hmmmm....

By Blogger Formerly Original Anonymous/hot babes best friend, at 5:53 PM  

Of course. I could never wear a belly shirt, and its only cruel to taunt me about it.
