democrats have decided to kowtow to every special interest group and minority group possible, and in the process, they are pushing mainstream america further away. the democrats have gone so far left that ordinary americans want nothing to do with them anymore. they are controlled by, not by the voters who put them in office, and americans are sick of it. 11% approval ratings? are you kidding me? they have decided to spend more time and money on trying to silence people like rush limbaugh than trying to find a solution for the war in iraq - the sole issue which voters put them in office to solve. the democrat party makes me sick. we are seeing the collapse of a political party right in front of our eyes, and the mistakes they are making today will haunt them for decades to come. they've become the anti-america, anti-troop, anti-capitalism party that we've always suspected they were, they've just decided to stop hiding it. the democrat party is a pure failure, and stunts like this bullshit rush limbaugh story (which anyone with an iq above 70 recognizes is bullshit) will only drag their party down more, and americans are fed up with it. they just don't get it, and if americans want this country to have a future, they'll vote them out of office next time around.

First of all, watch your mouth, anon 8:49. You make some points in your post. No need to ruin it with invectives.
Second, I agree that the democrats have lost some credibility with their incessant pandering. It seems, though, that the alternative is a party that panders just as much, simply to ther groups. There needs to be either a viable third party (not a special interest one like the Greens), or a movement to a no-party system, as was originally envisioned at the beginning.
Third, this cartoon seems a little racist, to me at least.

racist? interesting that you post comments about how both parties pander, yet the cartoon is saying just that as well. so if the cartoon is racist, so are you. think of all of the debates the dems have had. they had a spanish debate, a union debate, a youtube debate, a naacp debate, im sure a few im forgetting (sorry, i dont tend to watch them debate. they've become too predictable, and i'm not too fluent in spanish...). whatever happened to the average american who doesnt speak spanish, who doesnt support far left orgs like media matters and, and who aren't part of a minority group? i'm not a big fan of borgman's politics, but he hit the nail on the head with this one. the republicans get chided when we decide to just have a regular DEBATE. it's amazing to me how out of touch the democrat party has become. it's great to watch from a historical perspective, because in 20 years, we'll be looking back and reflecting on the massive mistakes democrats have made and why they are no longer a majority party anymore (they could start with not thinking america is the enemy anymore, but i wouldnt hold my breath)

hmm. the dems must be doing something right, to flush the trolls out so quickly.

jim, its a good cartoon for those of us who remember the good ole days.

if by "right", you mean energizing the republican base by trashing our troops, trashing america, and guaranteeing failure for america and its allies in the war on terror..

then yes, the dims are doing something right..

i want them to keep doing it. the GOP is making a killing from their comments. the more they talk, the more money we are able to raise.

hey, did you hear Ala Senakreh, West Bank chief of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades has invited Rosie O'Donnell to trash america over supper? who ever said democrats and terrorists are one in the same?....

hmmmmm. yes yes, democrats support the troops alright..

Wow. Some of these posts here are a real pain to read. The posters would do well to use some punctuation (i.e., capital letters to start sentences, breaking up large blocks of words into separate paragraphs, etc.)

i think our friend tim here is 67, and has never used the internet before. i bet his password is probably "password".

my friend, welcome to the world wide web. you're well outnumbered by people 1/3 your age, but that's ok. you'll get used to it.

Jim, Great toon. makes me laugh every time I see it. I was so bored when we had one choice. I like the news on the web and the League of Women Voters website. I like the fact that the Enq. is publishing information articles and links to candidate websites.

I like Zits, too.

Oooh, I love when the wingnut trolls come out; time for a Reality Check, so without further ado . . .:

Reality Check 1: Like it or not, "special interests" and "minorities" are America, as much as any other Americans.

Reality Check 2: Polls show leading Democrats beating any Republican they face in the Presidential election, and some go so far as to show them gaining ten extra seats in the Senate in '08. Republicans have gone so far to the right, the moderate Democrats seem "far left."

Reality Check 3: The "11%" Congressional approval rating, when looked at closer, is primarily because of Republican obstructionism. Said polls do indeed show people rightfully blaming Republicans for Congressional ineffectiveness.

Reality Check 4: It is in fact Democrats who seem to be the only ones who have a plan for Iraq. Of the Republicans, only Ron Paul supports a pull out (i.e. a real solution), everyone else wants to stay-and-fail.

Reality Check 5: We are indeed seeing the collapse of a political party, and it's kind of sad to see the Republicans going down the tubes. Larry Craig refusing to resign, the Bush Administration as a whole, the Religious Right threatening to create their own party if Rudy Giuliani gets the nomination, about 26 Republicans under investigation . . . sad, really . . .

Reality Check 6: Being the party that supports a pull out of harm's way, not to mention some credible rotation times, it seems the Democrats are indeed the pro-troop party, while Republicans are unusually full of Chickenhawks who have no clue.

Reality Check 7: Rush Limbaugh's calling any soldiers who disagree with him phony is indeed vile, something no amount of transcript doctoring will change, and something he confirmed when he lumped Vietnam Veteran Jack Murtha with the "phonies" . . .

Hmmm, I think that about covers it . . .

you just typed two pages bashing a "wingnut troll" for "coming out", yet you do the same thing?

i love liberal hypocrisy. note that he also accused me of being gay, which is something only liberals get away with. if ann coulter did it...WATCH OUT!

at 10/7/07, 8:21 PM Anonymous Reality Check said...

Wow, another "Oh the hypocrisy" clone; that, or OTH has really gone downhill . . .

at 10/9/07, 4:45 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

ha, you prove my point. americans dont care that democrats are the party of "do as i say, not as i do".

it's ok. with four years of another clinton in the white house, this country will be republican controlled for decades to come. she's the best thing that could happen to our party. sometime's you gotta take one for the team to get your punch in. i want to spend the next four years hearing about how *great* the democrat controlled governmnet is. mwahahaha.

He (she?) just keeps going and going; really a gift that keeps on giving!

now go on back to your shepard, sheep.

Ha ha! wow. I'm a first timer here and man, I must admit, I enjoy this sort of thing. This is the place where people take personal shots at each other. We need to get some candidates in here and let them go at it. But seriously, nice cartoon. I can't get cable so I've been with You tube.
