“DON’T HAVE TIME TO DRAW RIGHT NOW” COMIX
Panel 1: PIZZAGATE SHOOTER – drawn like a normal guy (no unflattering caricature), wearing a shirt labeled “Pizzagate” with an AR-15 at his side. Dialogue: “I’m just trying to find some answers”
Panel 2: THE MEDIA – as depicted in this comic, with his eyes looking delirious, holding some files labeled “Photoshops.” He’s in front of a pegboard with a bunch of pictures of Obama and Trump’s inaugurations with string connecting them. Dialogue: “Literally NOBODY was at Trump’s inauguration!!! Not even Trump!!! I have ‘evidence’ to prove it!!!”
Bottom Caption: Who’s The Real Conspiracy Theorist?
He drew George W. Bush, like, twice during the course of his presidency, so this seems like a pointless exercise.
Thinking about one of my favorite political ads, this Ron Paul commercial from 2012 that’s literally titled “BIG DOG.” Here’s a playlist with more of my favorites, in (hopefully) chronological order. The 2016 general election sorta sucked for ads, the Clinton campaign did a million ads with Donald Trump saying bleeped-out bad words with the assumption that would be enough.
DEMOCRAT: Trump won because Republicans live in their own Facebook bubble and refuse to read real news… also, left-wing journalists who were critical of Hillary ought to be hung for treason
Trying to think of some upsides. Uhh… I’m happy for that college professor guy who said Trump was going to win. They’re going to add a Donald Trump animatronic at Disney World. Things must be looking good for the factory that made all those Wacky-Bush-Quote-A-Day calendars.
That’s all I’ve got.
A followup to this post… they make Halloween costumes of video game streamers now:
Was going through my books and found my copy of Matt Furie’s Boy’s Club (dated 2006), which I got at a comics fest in 2010. This was between the “feels good man” era and the “Sad Pepe” era:
Forget Hillary Clinton and Rachel Maddow’s denunciations of the supposed Nazi frog, this is the only “Pepe explainer” you need:
Also, I think this is the comic where “Sad Pepe” comes from?
rubbercat.net, May 2012:
The realization candidates for office now have to make their own meme-generating apps, that on some infinitesimal level among a hopefully small minority of voters the election will be decided by Which Side Has The Better Memes, is horrifying
New York Times Magazine, August 2016:
“It’s like a meme war,” Rivero says, “and politics is being won and lost on social media.”
