It’s Comical, Part 4: Comic Book Books Edition

There are some cartoon characters who start out in the funnies and then show up in books. For example, there’s Little Orphan Annie. It was a daily comic strip written and drawn by Harold Gray. It ran for 86 years, ending in June 2010. We don’t have to miss it, though, as Governor Jan Brewer has taken her place.   Makes sense to me, as Governor Jan sorta looks like a Leapin’ Lizard.  You probably heard the sad story Jan tells about her father dying while fighting the Germans in World War II.  Such a good story.  Too bad it wasn’t true

It’s Comical, Part 3: They Yam What They Yam Edition

This was originally posted in February 2008 over at American Street and reposted here almost a year ago. Since we’re talking about the comics, I thought I’d dust it off.
First, though, a tip of the hat agent9999hattip to the lovely and talented Friend of the Court who suggested the theme for this humble submission.

With the business out of the way, let’s begin with Chimpy Chim-pea…

The Raisin Galvanizes for Steele!

From VANITY FAIR:

The race for the absolute top-spot in Republican fundraising is heating up this week, as contenders for the Republican National Committee chairmanship seem more eager than ever to oust the organization’s current head, Michael Steele. Yesterday, at a debate organized by a Tea Party group, four likely contenders for the chair denounced Steele’s spotty record of fiscal and fundraising mismanagement. While it remains to be seen whether Steele will seek a second term, many of his presumptive adversaries have already formally declared their intentions to depose him.

I don’t know about you, kids, but I think Michael Phathead Steele should run again and should be reelected. Why? Glad you asked. For one thing, nobody can rock a Carmen Miranda hat like Phathead…

Lowering the Bar

Seems that Princess Sarah Palin is a little pissed off at that blue-blooded Barbara Bush. I think that Princess had better realize that she’s feuding with perhaps the grizzliest of mamas when she picks on Babs (or Bar, as Poppy calls her). Being blue-blooded has taught Babs to be as nasty as she wants to be while wearing a smile. Princess could learn a thing or two from her. Here’s a look back at Babs. George H. W. Poppy Bush and Babs had their hands full with Chimpy and Little Jebbie…

Cereal Liars

I’m watching the Food Channel at the moment, so I thought we’d continue on with our exploration of Rethuglican cuisine.  I thought we could take a look at cereal.  After all, everyone loves cereal, just ask Mikey!

I bet it tastes even better when topped with Chuckleberries.

Food for Thought

I didn’t feel like picking out an old post to rerun, so I thought I might do a compilation of food products we’ve seen here at the Raisin.  Since the Raisin started during the Chimpy administration, I thought we’d start with some of products from back then.  Speaking of Chimpy, let’s begin with a hearty George W. Bush breakfast…

Pulp Affliction

From Bill Press at THE HILL:

[…] I do not hate George W. Bush. But I still disagree with most of his policies, I still think he was a mediocre president — and I’m not going to change my mind just because he’s out there trying to sell a self-serving book.

Hey, kids, my hand is still being a pain in the…hand, but our buddy and fellow Raisinette, Tengrain, had a challenge over at Mock, Paper, Scissors that I couldn’t resist.  I didn’t overexert myself.  I just took some old posters and put them in the template of Chimpy’s Decision Points (because he’s the Deciderer).  Make sure to check out all the dust covers at MPS. They’re hilarious!

Nightmare Girls

From Andy Ostroy at OpEd News:

It’s the hottest band in politics: Sarah & the GOPettes. Ya got Palin, Michelle Bachman [sic], Nikki Haley and Christine O’Donnell. They’re young, personable and attractive, and are out there on the 2010 Tea Party Tour whipping the radical right-wing fringe base into a veritable frenzy. O’Donnell’s the latest addition, with her stunning defeat of 42-year Delaware Republican career-politician Mike Castle in Tuesday’s Senate primary. Heck, I’ll even throw the 61-year-old Sharon Angle [sic] into this group.
