    So is this cartoon PRO- or ANTI- Tea Bagger? All good art is laced with a healthy dose of ambiguity.

          Good point. They seem to feel that Sarah Palin is some sort of genius. I’d personally say something more like “idiot savant”.

            i have tea bag family members, it’s equal parts troubling and entertaining.

          • That is interesting. It makes me proud that no one in my known family is a tea bagger.

          They will. I got a definite sneer of stereotyping from those comics. Punchlines a little too “dumbed down” so to speak. I laughed out of sheer delight of how brilliantly these were done.

    I have actually met Tea Party members. This joke is way too inteligent. Perhaps a video of someone shaking car keys.

  11. Actually…they might be better off investing in communication by pantomime…most of their fans are a cool minute from being pre-lingual as it is.

  13. As much as this could be making fun of tea baggers, Calvin and Hobbes was a badass comic, it shouldnt even be related to anything as stupid as the tea party.
