    The neo-libs figure they lost because they where not liberal enough….. In California however, liberism is just getting warmed up.

    The encouraging news is that states like California and New York have stopped gaining congressional seats every reapportionment, and are starting to slowly lose a seat here or there.
    Ten years from now, I would love to see CA, NJ, MA and NY lose many more House seats.

    With time, good citizens will vote with their feet. I was so glad when Rush Limbaugh completely moved out of New York City… if only a few thousand more millionaires would do this, and that corrupt-a-crat government would financially collapse.
    That little ‘factoid’ demonstrates how much liberal ideology gouges & punishes through grotesque taxation rates, the most productive citizens.

    I’m going to laugh when 8 years from now when everyone is screaming at how Republicans are ruining the country and how they all need to be replaced by Democrats in office.

    The last 30 years are just going to repeat themselves over and over again.

    Only if the GOP goes center-left like under both Bushes, and not if they go Reagan, peace be upon him!

  1. Ikabod: “Liberalism warming up in California”– is that a spin off of Global Warming? –except that this one really IS perilous. Thanks for the savvy redefining of this genuine danger to the planet. I may have to take on Liberal Warming in a cartoon, down the line.

  2. Steve: Nice summary; I can hardly wait to become a millionaire here in California so that I can then move out and give the whole socialist disaster-zone the bird.

  3. cobainfan69: Nice try, but I dunno, this time; Obama may have clinched it for you guys for several generations, so hated by so many is the stew of socialism he has cooked up.

  4. geeknerd: Yeah– we’ll see; but to me it kinda looks like the GOP has to an important extent learned its lesson. I think a whole coterie of Reaganesque policy-makers now appears to be in place in congress, and ultimately that may hold nearly as much sway as a central Reagan or Reagan-type leader might… though that leader could still emerge as well. Here’s hoping…

    “Nice try, but I dunno, this time; Obama may have clinched it for you guys for several generations, so hated by so many is the stew of socialism he has cooked up.”

    Pretty sure people said the same thing about Carter and Clinton. My point still stands. America will be stuck in this stupid loop.

    Cobainfan-
    Given your closing remark, ” America will be stuck in this stupid loop.” seems to indicates you do not approve of it (yes?),… so, why don’t you join the political side that is working to end this “…loop.” ??

    The “…loop.” you refer to is actually a spiraling & destructive growth of the Federal Government. What this administration and the Pelosi controlled House has done in 21 months is to quadruple deficit spending.

    If you want to end this cycle, that would mean you would look to support;
    – those who want to reverse the growth of Federal Government
    – those who want lower taxes on everyone and businesses
    – those who want to stop the un-checked power of federal agencies who can issue laws by fiat (ref. the new regulations for grotesque pictures on cigarette packs)
    -the Tea Party, the Tenth Amendment Foundation, the Heritage Foundation – or, those that these folks endorse.

    Perhaps you are not old enough to remember the ’70’s, but serious inflation is on the way, due to recent Pelosi – Obama deficit budgets. Scapegoating the previous Bush administration is a sleazy & dishonest distraction.
    The facts are, ‘Obama-care’, and all this massive trillions spent in the last two years is going to haunt YOUR level of living for many years to come.

    “The “…loop.” you refer to is actually a spiraling & destructive growth of the Federal Government.”

    That is not the loop I’m referring to at all. I’m referring to the loop of (pardon my French) socio-political bullshit.

    *Democrats elected to office*
    “Democrats are ruining America! Vote them out!”
    *Republicans elected*
    “Republicans are ruining America! Vote them out!”
    Repeat ad naseum.

    “Scapegoating the previous Bush administration is a sleazy & dishonest distraction.”

    I’m all for not passing the buck and such but if you’re implying the Bush Administration didn’t cause existing problems you are blind.

    William F. Buckley, Jr. (peace be upon him!) called that “invincible ignorance.”

    Lenin (not the Beatle) called such people, “useful idiots.”

    Useful for all politicians seeking to get elected or re-elected, apparently.

    Also, thanks for clarifying that two people with two different names were not actually the same person. Don’t know what I would’ve done without that.

    But which one said, “Imagine no religion…” first?

    geeknerd –
    One Lenin was a long hair, pot smoking, sissified girly-man leftist, who espoused zombie-minded idealisms through his excellent musical talent… the other & older Lenin was just a bloodthirsty tyrant who murdered his own people by the tens of millions.

    There is no indication that what the older Lenin did, ever offended the idealisms or the ‘sensibilities’ of the younger one…

    Then John Lenin and his listeners were “useful idiots,” useful to the followers of Vladimir Lenin and his successors.

    Give it a few years Steve, media, school books and university professors will downplay the role of Communism as histories most genocidal political experiment the world has ever known. To merely a unfortunate result of creating a utopia on earth, those that died just didn’t get it… Socialism: Spreading misery equally!

  5. Zack,
    Just saw the write-up in Front Page Mag this morning. Congrats!!!

    ikabod –
    They were already downplaying the record genocides of communism in the public schools in the ’70s… (when I was there).

    Likely, they were pussy-footing around it earlier~

    “The government is tottering. We must deal it the death blow an any cost. To delay action is the same as death.” – Vladimir Lenin

    “All we are saying is give peace a chance.” – John Lennon

    Two peas in a pod, if I ever saw one.

    Look, for the sake of ending your own confusion:

    Vladimir Illych LENIN: Russian Communist Revolutionary

    John LENNON: Beatle hippy potsmoking millionaire peacenik married to shrill insane performance artist.

    THERE. G – damn.

  6. Oh Zack, GREAT STUFF!

    I saw an article about you and your blog at frontpagemag.com – classic! We need more like you! Of course I live in OCRegister.com turf (Garden Grove, CA), amd the cartoons are reasonably conservative, for a change – not used to it, a year ago I was in LA Times turf.

    In regards to:
    “I receive lots of snarling, negative email from liberals who seem to feel that only the left should be able to combine politics with irony and satire,” said Rawsthorne. “But when I get reactions like that I know I’ve created an effective cartoon.”

    Catalog it, it could well prove to be good book material one day.

    All the best,

    -Pat

    I remember the conflict that prompted Lennon to say, “give peace (that is, victory for the enemies of America) a chance.”

    ProsperityOPS, I’ve been asking Zack to get a spell checker on this page for some time. BTW, Do you get all anal when people text LOL instead of “laugh out loud,” too?

    “ProsperityOPS, I’ve been asking Zack to get a spell checker on this page for some time. BTW, Do you get all anal when people text LOL instead of “laugh out loud,” too?”

    Use a 21st century internet browser.

  7. Patrick, great having you stop in. Real good suggestion there: a lovingly preserved rainy-day scrapbook full of vicious expletive-filled mail for eventual use in a publication. Maybe I could scrawl a bunch of ’em in crayon as a double-paged spread in the next book. Do you hafta get permission when you print hate mail?

  8. ProsperityOPS– excellent synopsis there, almost like poetry. It’s said that they combed Yoko’s hair and found the Lindbergh baby.

  9. EriktheRed– so cool having you here again, back again from the battle of Hastings or whatever, long ship in tow. And yes, it was great connecting with Frontpage, David Horowitz being my favorite curmudgeon-genius. It’s said that Balzac turned out novels like hotcakes but he has nothing on D. Horowitz.

  10. geeknerd, I’ll have my admin look into a spellcheck but be forewarned: this is a cut-rate blog and the budget spellcheck they provide is known to have no better than a 7th grade vocabulary.

  11. Great post Zack.

    ProsperityOPS and cobainfan69 just don’t get my runnning gag about Lenin/Lennon and the similarity of their work. There’s even a line in the song “Miss America Pie” about how “Lennon read a book on Marx.”

    Those of you with better writing skill than myself, is “anal-retentive” hyphenated?

  12. I’m really digging the Lenon-go-round, geeknerd, though the back and forth has my head swimming. Tell me again, which one was married to Yoko?

    Geeknerd…. Wait a minute, didnt Marx make some fine toys back during the 60’s? So this means then…. Karl Marx wrote the communist manifesto AND invented such memorable toys as the Big Wheel?

  13. Ikabod, please don’t get geeknerd started.

    I remember well those toys “By Marx!” going back to the 60s. How the left must have seethed to see his hallowed name attached to action figures.

  14. Thanks Jason. Why is it that whenever I see your name I feel like having a cup of coffee?
