Not bad, except for the fact that Pat Buchanan actually has always been against the war in Iraq.

And that very issue actually seems to have been addressed in this one: Pat, You're Fired!

And this just isn't funny. Could we get some shading or hatching, please?

Some of it's a little heavy-handed, but I still laughed a bit. "Tell it to Allah, Haji!"

This is nothing like The Onion, which makes fun of everyone wherever fun is to be made. They're anti-stupid, which is a much better approach than this comic takes.

Flarbuse: Gah, I clicked most of them but not that one. Still doesn't make up for why "Pat" acts like a hawk in all the other strips.

I like the title "I don't see dead people". Heh.

Yep, the Onion is soooo neutral.... The capacity of people to rationalize their affection for something that they "ought" to hate (if they're being consistent in their views) never ceases to amaze me. I keep thinking of Spike Lee and John Turturro in Do the Right Thing.

The Pat B character is a bit inconsistent with Pat Buchanan's actual positions, though....

I vote we execute all editorial cartoonists.

I was going to laugh at these, but with no shading or hatching it hardly seems worth it. Actually, I thought these were really funny. Some people have mentioned that these cartoons are in fact not consistent with reality. Which is kind of what I thought one of the benefits of cartoons was, but...
