    It's funny, because if the animals in that cartoon were reversed, the cartoon would still be terrible, but at least it would be both relevant and true.

  2. Pithaughn

    Malkin sure likes to cut and paste. If only the governing board that awards and takes away medical licenses was outsourced to some gun toting private contractor then this slaughter could have been prevented, I guess? I'm never sure what is better when it is privatized and what isn't.

  3. metamarcisf

    It's only funny if you bother to read the caption:
    “I got a check for over a million in less than 2 weeks.”

    Arizona is still bringing the crazy I see. Hey crazy state congresswoman, there's no need for your bill since Obama already released his birth certificate, in 2008.

    So, now that the ban on the so-called "partial birth abortions" and horrible restrictions on late-term abortions in states like PA have forced women needing late-term abortions into what is basically the dangerous equivalent of the pre-Roe back alley abortionist, some of the forced birth crowd has claimed this is further reason to ban abortion. No, you evil cretins; listen, Malkin et al, it is a sign that there are too fucking many restrictions on abortion now, along with a sign that many competent doctors are afraid to offer abortion service because they may be shot by a terrorist directly inspired by you.

    Malkin ends with, ""Waiting for femmes to blame pro-life movement for all this in 3, 2, 1…": Well, duh, because THE "PRO-LIFE" MOVEMENT IS DIRECTLY TO BLAME FOR THIS, YOU DISHONEST EVIL FUCK.

    1. lulzmonger

      Yep. Tiller was what, one of TWO Docs who did late-term abortions? I'm sure the post-meds are lining up around the block for a gig with such an awesome retirement package.

      Made exactly this point in a comment over at NRO, where it is now "in the NRO queue" & thus should become visible right after flying hedgehogs shoot out of my ass … but at least some wingnut motherfucker has to look at a tiny iota of reality for a moment.

      Hope they're not scarred for life.

    From the poster: "We are really type O (energy from dead plants)"

    This is true. I often get type O energy from dead plants. Usually carrots or cucumbers.

    Re: the TobyToons/Charles Shultz homage… anyone with even a passing familiarity with "Peanuts" knows that Franklin is the black one. Linus is the intellectual gay one. And neither Charlie Brown nor Lucy ever wore helmets. So in sum, Toby is a piss-poor cartoonist with the mental capacity of a sack of all-purpose flour.

      1. elviouslyqueer

        Half right. Marcie was bisexual before her time (she held a torch for Charlie Brown, remember?). But yea, Peppermint Patty was just Melissa Etheridge, the Early Years.

        1. genxr

          No no, Peppermint Patty had the hots for ol' Chuck. Marcie was 100% gay for the Pattie, who seemed kinda freaked out about that sometimes.

    1. teebob2000

      Oh, they cover that in the comments on RS. One dick pointed out that Obama is not an intellectual, but more like Frida who was only concerned about herself. Brilliant insight.

      1. Rotundo_

        It's Red State; would you expect anything less than brilliant insight from the commenters? Just try saying that aloud without cracking up. I haven't been able to yet.

  7. LiveToServeYa

    So, business leaders preferred hearing about IPOs from space to hearing Sarah Palin give a motivational talk?

  8. jim89048

    Jesus christ, I've already seen Obama's birth certificate more times than I've seen my own. Enough with this foolishness!

  9. BlueStateLibel

    Don't let the teabaggers see the alien infographic–it looks like Michele Obama in the upper left. Perhaps plotting to sell the fatties out for alien menus?!

  10. Maman

    When the President's birth certificate premiers I bet it will still look like my Hawaiian-born father's (except Dad's says "Territory of Hawaii" . And yet my father will remain a birther. These nuts live in a fact-free zone and it is pointless to attempt to prove anything to them. You can't.

  11. SayItWithWookies

    So — Michelle Malkin believes that we should take some sweeping action against legal abortion because some guy was acting illegally? I wonder if her stance on gun control in response to the Jared Laughner murders is equally predictable?

  12. SorosBot

    That Exo-news site is humorously crazy, which is a nice respite from the anger-inducing crazy of the other sites covered. The thing is, it's clear from the original article they reproduce that GCF Panel was both tongue in cheek and focused on the idea that there are almost certainly other civilizations somewhere out there, and not that aliens have visited Earth, as the site was trying to spin it.

    Hell, I've read a number of Michio Kaku's books, in fact I'm reading one right now, and know that he doesn't believe in that junk. There's only one possible sign of intelligent extraterrestrial life we've ever detected, and that's just one interpretation of a signal that no-one's managed to find an explanation for: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wow!_signal

  13. user-of-owls

    Man oh Manischewitz! How can you not be convulsed with laughter by that hilarious Toby!? Seriously, in terms of cutting edge humor, I can't think of any strip that even comes close. Well, ok, there's Family Circus, but aside from that….

  14. Weenus299

    Oh God. Everyone knows Lucy was a republican. Charlie Brown always, ALWAYS represents the democrat dorks like me. I'm not even going there with the Linus/Franklin thing with the … TelePromTer thing there?

  15. Weenus299

    Andy Capp would've been better. I don't know how, but I envision something with soccer, smoking, and the mac-wearing battleaxe going after him with a rolling pin.

    Red State: Continuing to prove that Conservatives have no sense of humor one bad post at a time.

  17. genxr

    Wow. All this time I've been making fun of redstate, but reading their comments, how utterly amused they are by that cartoon, now I feel guilty. It's not their fault they're special!

    Oh and that cartoon looks like it was drawn by an elephant.

  18. Tundra Grifter

    So Arizona is going to pass a state law regulating who can run for President of the United States?

    Whiskey Tango Foxtwat?

    1. GOPCrusher

      I thought they were working on a bill requiring anyone that runs for President has to provide them a copy of his/her birth certificate?

      1. Tundra Grifter

        Yep. But how can any one state pass a binding requirement (that effectively amends the US Constitution) regarding someone running for Federal office?

        1. DataSnake

          State legislatures can determine who gets the state's electoral votes. Of course, it's not like Barry was ever going to carry AZ anyway…

    I avoid reading right-wing hate sites in much the same way that I would avoid people who promote dog fighting or child slavery and for essentially the same reasons–those who run them, write for them and comment on them are foul, repellent beasts who make a virtue of their ignorance.

    One of the many public services provided by my Wonkette is the occasional highlighting of particular outrageous effluvium from the ignorati in such a way that I can take a quick glance and get out. Michele Malkin? Red State? Clickity click, look into the maw of hell, slam the virtual door shut again.

    1. GOPCrusher

      They really are evil little shits, aren't they? And then they wonder why America turned to look at them when the news of the Tucson Massacre first broke.

  20. Steverino247

    Obama could have been born on Pluto, but as long as his mother was a U.S. citizen, so was he. The two newspapers of record for Hawai'i printed birth notices, even. Who the hell really believes that some guy in Shithole, Kenya, has the resources to get two rival newspapers on the other side of the planet to print a lie just to support a run for President 40 years later by a black kid, who, at the time of his birth had exactly ZERO fucking chance of drinking from the same water fountain as whites, let along becoming President. On August 4, 1961, his parents couldn't have even gotten married in much of the United States, let alone think about having a kid make it to the White House as something other than a servant or cook. Stupidity alone does not explain this belief system. The belief that cutting your balls off and then drinking poison so you could catch a ride on a passing comet is an MIT Ph.D. dissertation by comparison to the birther belief system. Anyone who espouses this bullshit should not be allowed near a pair of Nikes.

    Irony and humor escape the Rightards. Most of them don't even get that Colbert is lampooning the Right. They do think inflicting physical pain on a perceived enemy is always funny, not much else, though.

    I think there's a term for accusing your opponents of killing babies, but I can't quite remember it. I think it rhymes with "mud bible"…
