A Chorus Line.
Brent Rinehart is a commissioner in Oklahoma County, which is in Oklahoma. Rinehart has been charged with felony campaign-finance crimes and will be tried this fall, which isn’t helping his campaign for re-election. So he wrote this comic book (PDF) and is sending it to everybody in his district.

The weirdly drawn comic shows how the Homosexuals, the Good Ol’ Boys, Anal Sodomy and the Devil have ganged up on him. It is hilarious. Says County Assessor Leonard Sullivan of Rinehart: “I’ve really encouraged him on more than one occasion to get professional help. He really needs it.” [Reason/Boing Boing/Tulsa World]

  1. What the heck is Daniel Johnston doing running for county commissioner in Oklahoma?
    Either way, outsider art like this should be lovingly encouraged, Ken, not ridiculed by cynical coastal elites on the internets. I mean, look at that woman’s head. Good lord, it’s majestic.

  2. It looks like Brent can draw at least three different faces, which puts him ahead of about %78 of the editorial cartoonists out there. Plus, his costuming is fabulous!

  3. Holy moly! Whodathunk “pedifiles” and “anal sodomites” could inspire such heavenly artwork? Quit polytiks, and get ‘er dun with yer pinsil, you pinhead.

  4. the man is obviously insane…there are no liberal good ole boys in oklahoma…its just an impossibility…

    but beyond that, i do think the man has talent….perhaps hed like a gig as resident wonkette cartoonist?…im sure hed fit right in…

  5. [re=39003]Mahousu[/re]: All you cynics, mark my words: if he can pick up some sewing skills, we will see Brent’s work in the next series of Project Runway.

  6. Considering he’s so vehemently opposed to the homosexual lifestyle, you’d think he’d refrain from drawing naked gladiator wrestling in his comics. But you’d be wrong (page 8).

  7. Well worth looking at the full cartoon!

    To be fair, he’s running against a South American Adolf Hitler, while being pursued by black-and-white minstrel spies and being tempted by a hot Satan to think that homosexuality is normal. Have pity on him.

    His defense that “a city report found that Councilman Rinehart did nothing wrong” is universally accepted. No matter where you live in the world, that explanation rings a reassuring bell.

  8. “I’ve really encouraged him on more than one occasion to get professional help. He really needs it.”

    And ruin our fun? Boooo!!!!

    But seriously, maybe they need to go past the point of “encouragement” to “butterfly net”.

  9. [re=39010]tunamelt[/re]: I think the X is like one of those Charles Manson facial self-cuttings. Like the kind of X you can draw on your face with a bent paperclip (it has to be bent) if you are a liberal good ol’ boy Malcom X supporter.

  10. [re=39022]wheelie[/re]: Although the plot is tough to follow (like all great works of art), I think the South American Hitler is the greedy sheriff, who is demanding a “bomb truck”.

    I can’t be sure, but I think his opponent is the former economic development officer, who apparently considers $42,000 to be more money than he’s made in his entire life.

    The upshot of all this: stay the fuck away from Oklahoma City.

  11. [re=39016]El Bombastico[/re]: The problem is, it’s hard to do a comic of any length without having naked gladiator wrestling in it somewhere. That’s why Bill Amend
    had to give up doing FoxTrot dailies – he kept circling back to a plotline where Peter has to wrestle a gladiator naked, and the syndicate kept rejecting it. Too bad, too, as it was a real hoot.

  12. [re=39036]Mahousu[/re]: Good point. We all remember the controversial 1986 Family Circus where Billy and PJ re-enacted the infamous Spartacus scene. King Features Syndicate is STILL hearing about it.

  13. That is the most disturbing graphic novel I’ve ever seen.

    Satyr Boy Scout troop leader toga-wearing Peddofiles, Oklahoma Liberal Good Ol’Boys, it’s all just too much to take.

  14. I like how all the protesters are either limp wristed or clearly getting ready for jazz hands. Jazz hands are the mark of the devil.

  15. The first panel: without a doubt a satire based on the frieze tableau from the Parthenon, now held in the British Museum as the Elgin Marbles.
    Third character from the left defamationing the Newell. Don’t get all huffy, Jim. In the Classical tradition of Ovid, Cicero and Virgil, it’s called the “bite me”.

    The seconf panel: Mrs. Brain-on-Top-of-Head talks to the ghost of Milton Friedman as he communicates deep thoughts from hell. (Soon to be paper in the much respected University of Chicago “Journal of Social Darwinism and Why Queers Should Be Sent to Special Prisons”.)
    Oklahoma does not, not deserve you.

  16. Lifetime memberships in the National Rifle Association, the Oklahoma Rifle Association and the Gun Owners of America have trained Brent to draw so fine a bead on why electing a law abiding county commissioner would be dangerous.

    His rich wellsprings of fantasy comes from embracing Republican ideals.

  17. [re=39085]Wee Mousie[/re]: Its hard to balance the wife, the kids and the assfucking. This is what comes from embracing Republican ideals.

  18. [re=39099]Fata Morgana[/re]: Wow, good call. And you are absolutely SURE this guy isn’t from Kansas, or Idaho? Ooooooklahoma, where the wind blows
    flushing out your brains.

  19. [re=39069]loquaciousmusic[/re]: There’s a Facebook group? Where?

    Oh. There’s a Page and a Group. You guys know that’s kind of redundant, right?

    Anyway, I want a copy of this comic book. Anybody in Oklahoma want to sell me one?

  20. [re=39072]LostLimey[/re]: Or it might be vice-versa. Who can tell? After all, it’s The New Yorker.
    Next cover: the fun side of Darfur detention camps.
    Giggles are all.

  21. One presumes Dave Berg would take issue with this amateurish appropriation of his style, if he were still alive and drawing strips. I’m almost certain the brain-woman played a helpful waitress in one of them.

  22. [re=38993]tunamelt[/re]: Watchtower?

    Oh, no dear, The Watchtower has competent artists. I’m kind of sad that my neighbor JWs have marked my house as off-limits, as I truly love Watchtower art. It is its own little genre.

    As is Jack Chick art. As comic art goes, it’s primitive, but it’s, y’know, not sucky.

    I went to a second-tier state school in the South, and yeah, our “cartoonists” sucked ass.

    But this…this sucks on a whole differnt level.

  23. It is bad enough that Brent is a closeted gay-bashing scoundrel but his “paving of the unfinished section of E. 89th street” is just too much.

  24. The weirdly drawn comic shows how the Homosexuals, the Good Ol’ Boys, Anal Sodomy and the Devil have ganged up on him.

    not to mention the “pedifiles” and “homosexual banners”

  25. Great, great stuff. If he loses his job and or goes to jail, he’ll still have a devoted following as an outsider artist in (he’ll love this part no doubt) New York. Note that the family of average children he’s protecting from his Tinker Air Force base based plain are playing soccer, not football or baseball. He knows his O.C. constituency, even if he appears to be a gibbering loon.

  26. apparently the homophobes believe that every gay man looks like either Joey Buttafuco, Dennis Rodman circa 1997, Spartacus, Peter Pan, or some horribly disfigured, legless midget. Where’s the comics curmudgeon when you need him?

  27. [re=39214]Deepthroat[/re]: On the far left, that’s not Buttafuco, that’s Janet Reno in her “sitting on the couch eating ice cream out of the carton” sweats.

    And the legless fellow on the far right appears to be Dennis Kucinich in a tiara.

    Who knew the hot redhead was a beard?

  28. [re=39201]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: I can’t wait for the animated version. Isn’t that what “The Family Guy” is, only with slightly less gehz in togehz.

  29. [re=39094]srhuddle[/re]: He is a roads scholar. That’s what county commissioners do here in OK, build roads and bridges. Which makes this whole business even weirder. Someone more famous and astute than me once said, There’s no conservative or liberal way to build a bridge. I guess liberal good ole’ boys like me use gay steel or something.

  30. [re=39021]tunamelt[/re]: Looks like a kid’s menu/coloring book at small diner in Ellijay, Ga that serves chicken strips in the shape of a cross.

  31. Rinehart hates the evil sheriff because his jail is overcrowded… but Rinehart fought to keep the evil sheriff from completing an expansion that would put 600 new cells in the jail to ease that overcrowding. The sheriff arrested so many people that the jail got overcrowded and then wanted money to fix it? He MUST be a bad person.

    Yup, DEFINITELY the logic of a “Roads Scholar.”

  32. [re=39244]Supernatural_Delegate[/re]: Tell that to anyone who has ever driven a car in New York City or Boston. graft is graft baby. Granted your run of the mill DPW guy is not drawing satanic buttsecks comics (too busy with 1.5 diamond whores).

  33. [re=39294]choinski[/re]: Wouldn’t that be “phile”? I think he is ranting against your average ordinary nail file, but he had to dress it up with the elitist use of “pedi” because he is a “roads scholar”.

  34. Am I really the first to point out that he didn’t draw it? “Art by Shane Suiters.”

    I can only hope Brent is responsible for the awesome spelling mistakes, because, well, they’re pretty awesome.

  35. [re=39294]choinski[/re]: No, I have a PediFile at home. It’s good for corns and calluses. I can’t keep my little boy away from it, though!

  36. Ken, part of your genius is that you FIND this stuff. We really appreciate the sacrifice of brain cells you must endure surfing the web to find such gems.

    And this looks like something my 8th grade friends and I would draw and pass back and forth during Algebra.

  37. [re=39004]Serolf Divad[/re]: He probably honed his drawing chops at Oral Roberts’ “university” or some such place. Did he copy the fat cats on the top of page 10 from somewhere else? They are very differently drawn than the rest of this inspired work.

    Otherwise, this is great stuff. Some guy who wrote a letter to the editor supports him! And he cut the county’s expenditures by 50%! Wait a minute… OKC’s city council’s annual budget was $430.000? And this pissant town is getting a NBA franchise?

  38. This guy was on CNN this morning. When confronted about his spelling errors, he said he did not care if her spelld “pedifile” wrong since it was the truth. Also, he was a huge douche.

    I wonder when he is going to do another issue where he fights Superman and his gay agenda rape machine.
