Forgot to post this here over the holiday. Apologies!

Short week for Thanksgiving, even though I’m not traveling. COVID, flu, RSV, and even our dear old pal the common cold will be. Stay healthy out there.

The Monster Fash

Read the comic on Patreon.

The Criterion Channel launched some great Halloween collections this week, the same week the Supreme Court began a new session. So I’ve been enjoying the escapism from real horrors with fictional ones.

Until the court’s expanded, or ignoring their unenforceable rulings becomes commonplace, these six freaks are going to do a lot of damage. (Unless two of them croak while a Democrat is President, before they say that’s unconstitutional.)

There are many, and far superior Halloween novelty songs than the Monster Mash, but it’s hard to top Werewolf Bar Mitzvah and Monster Fuck.

Inside Trump’s Treason Trove

Read the comic on Patreon.

Will there be consequences for the classified material Trump kept at Mar-a-Lago? Probably not, but it is still very funny. Better than him actually killing a guy on 5th Avenue and nothing happening.

The Power of Reactionary Thinking

Read the comic on Patreon.

The Supreme Court dropped some more steaming fascist turds since the last time I did a cartoon about them. Unless the court gets packed, or an [REDACTED] or two happens before the November midterms, I don’t see how our rights can be clawed back within my lifetime without some super-legal actions.

Susan Collins’s Concerns

Read the comic on Patreon.

Whining about protesters is all the rage this week among those who don’t want to mention the impending overturning of Roe v. Wade. Claiming these spontaneous, harmless protests are “protoviolence” and beyond the scope of the First Amendment is the first step to normalize the looming crackdowns when the (illegitimate) SCOTUS opinion officially comes down.

I don’t really want Maine to return to Massachusetts, but a lot of states should be consolidated, especially the prairie states which produce nothing more than senators, grain and natural gas.

Quick Fixes for the Supreme Court

Read the comic on Patreon.

The repealing of Roe v. Wade was inevitable when Anthony Kennedy mysteriously retired. I’d love for the reason for that, or the identity of Kavanaugh’s debt-absolving benefactors to be leaked, too. Leaving Merrick Garland’s nomination to die on the vine and RBG dying for real were just gravy for the forced-birth freaks.

If this further overreach by Republicans goes without massive protests, the next coup’s going to make Bush v. Gore look like a sound legal opinion.

I didn’t draw or write anything illegal in the redacted panels, by the way. They are “Pray the Court Away,” and “A Vote Makes the Court Go Away!” if any FBI agent is asking.

What’s New on Streaming

Read the comic on Patreon.

The omicron wave and a colder than usual March caught me up on a lot of TV. Marvel and Star Wars superfans will probably get mad at me even though I ate up all that garbage. I also read books. Mostly the Dune sequels though. Shut up.

Senate Hearing Content Warnings

Read the comic on Patreon.

I only watched clips and read articles about the Senate Judiciary Committee’s confirmation hearings for Ketanji Brown Jackson. A gross spectacle that I don’t know how anyone managed to watch it all, let alone participate in it like Brown Jackson was forced too.

After the run of Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett, there’s no more pretense of the Supreme Court being above the fray. That ended with Bush v. Gore for me.

Hopefully Brown Jackson gets confirmed. Meanwhile, I’m eagerly refreshing Clarence Thomas news.
