    This seems like too much of a retread from the “Oily Character” comic you did a few weeks ago. Though, I will admit I think the “ink blot” setup for this comic works better than the previous Gulf Oil Spill one.

    The school year has most likely ended for Diversity and the other kids now. Will the cliff overlooking the Gulf be like their new summer hangout spot?

    Well, we know Zack has created a sequel series of cartoon subjects before, right?
    I like this one… lots of potential.

    As metaphors go, how about if a dead, oil covered donkey, with a “Hope & Change” button, washes up on the beach?

    I don’t know, Steve. That doesn’t make much sense. Why is there a donkey out in the ocean?

    And you’re right, Zack has done different series of comics focusing around one singular topic or setting, but those has some progression in scope or plot, like Diversity’s demonstration of Obamacare with stuffed animals and toys.

    And personally, if Zack were to continue on with this setting, I’d hope he’d go for less obtuse punchlines, like a Sea Donkey. At least now, he just has Diversity interpreting the current situation in her own manner.

  1. Zack, I’m sure we’re all waiting for a commentary on the latest Israel-bashfest. Well, at least I am, so I can add it to my post.

    A comparison between Bush/Katrina and O’Bama/Oil Spill is appropriate, but why is there no comparison between O’Bama/Kagan and whoever that staffer was who Bush tried to nominate to the Supreme Court?

    @geeknerd: You’re thinking of Harriet Miers. And if you think nobody’s made comparisons between her and Kagan, you haven’t been watching any news at all apparently.

    Good one, Zack! Diversity may see the liberal scourge in this mess, but you can count on our left-wing brethren remaining in a state of maximum denial.

    Why a would a donkey be out on the ocean?

    …perhaps it was a mascot of good will, aboard a Greenpeace boat, and in the middle of a big ‘420’ smoke-hazy event, and while listening to Sierra recall her efforts to save giant redwoods, swinging to the tune, “Blowin in the Wind”, Mr. Donkey fell overboard.

    We can come up with all kinds of possibilities, yes?

    Just a small off-topic question, I hope the comment moderator won’t punish me for this:

    What’s everyone’s taste in music like?

    I’m a fan of most rock music. Mainly indie, alternative (especially 90’s grunge), and classic rock. Some of my favorite artists include The Beatles, Sonic Youth, Silversun Pickups, The New Pornographers, Foo Fighters, and Built to Spill.

  2. geeknerd, you could easily extend that to Sotomayor, inauguration, golfing, exercise, slips of the tongue… Basically, everything that both Bush and Obama did.

    Wootabega,

    No, I don’t watch enough news, because it just makes me more angry. I get most of my news from The Weekly Standard, National Review, American Spectator, Human Events, and Conservative Chronicles.

    And I certainly don’t watch The Daily Show, which incidentally is no more a news program than was John Gleese a newsreader when he said “And now for something completely different..” on Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

    Gentlemen,
    We are making some format changes here at Diversity Lane, so I apologize that the posting rules have not been re-posted yet.

    Sorry for this sudden notice, but we are not going to permit YouTube attachments posted here, anymore.
    If so, this forum could easily become a contest of one video clip vs. another.
    We do encourage you to include quotes and sources to support your views, in your comment narrative, if you wish.

    Thank you-
    Rafe

  3. The cartoon above is a metaphor for what the Obama regime has done to America in only 2 brief years; a massive assault upon and malicious desecration and intentional destruction of the American way of life. This president without question is the most callous, malevolent, misguided, miscreant ever to occupy the Oval Office, This really is America”s worst nightmare come true. Barack Hussein Obama, Hollywood actor wannabe is Captain Joseph Hazelwood of the Exxon Valdez. The only thing here is Captain Obama grounded his ship of state on the Gulf Coast intentionally, not accidentally.

  4. Not much denial goin’ on, Max. You apparently don’t haunt liberal dugouts, so I’ll briefly fill you and Zack in on some popular sentiments regarding the oil disaster:

    Let’s just say that “inept” is too kind word for a sizable chunk of people to use.

    “Men of science and men of faith, by constantly contradicting each other, always manage to arrive at same conclusion!”
    -The King And I

    Personally, I have a few choice words that are less generous than “inept.” “Criminally” and “negligent” are two of them. But the question is, are we indicting the same people beyond Barack Obama? If you are comfortable being spoken for by a sizable number of DC Republicans, I’m guessing not. Whither BP?

    Miles:
    I think the key word here is “projection.”
