Congratulations, you’ve nailed him.
When Brandis speaks of reading ‘intelligence’ does he include Dubya’s weapons-of-mass-destruction illuminations relating to Saddam Hussein?
Let your comedic muscles ripple, Mr. Mountain.
You know, I never realised how much Brandis looks like Dick Cheney? Have they ever been seen together (other than at a ‘recital” at an undisclosed CIA Black Site)?
Not sure how you become more ‘conservative’ – by definition that means change which isn’t conservative and doesn’t it mean moving closer to the centre where you were before….no, I am confused.
If he means more right wing, more Tea Party, more totalitarian, more ugly ends justify the ugly means, more secretive, more cynical and lots more I can see that.
Zut, my thoughts exactly. The same process we saw of Bush/Howard using ‘intelligence’ to build a nasty case for nasty acts.
“Pornography for the Political Pre-set”.
Excellent! A giant conservative monster! I love Wes Mountain!
Why do we keep calling these people ‘conservatives’? A conservative is someone who who leaves or saves things as they are or if they need change, changes things slowly and with forethought.
A conservationist is more conservative than any of these people in this current crop of politicians.
These guys are reactionaries, nothing more, nothing less. They want change, they want it yesterday and the the less it negatively affects them the better.
Apart from that bit of nit picking I like the cartoon.
