Look at me covering recent events. Didn’t think I could be topical, did ya? Shit, son, I’m so topical you could find me in a jar at Bed Bath & Beyond!

So yeah, heh, this one came from a place of anger. Thankfully, both Shadlyn and Dan talked me down a bit. Now the strip is just a little bit of pointed commentary rather than the scream-it-from-the-mountain-tops ravings of a bloodthirsty lunatic. Seriously, though, what the hell is going on these last few weeks? Are you seriously going to tell me – with a straight face – that medical insurance should cover Viagra but it shouldn’t cover birth control? And then there’s the whole “you have to have a transvaginal ultrasound before getting an abortion” thing. And don’t even get me started on the ongoing Limbaugh shitstorm. I just. Grah. Argh. Ghghgaugghghaghh!

I like women. Big fan. Even applied for membership. (They tell me the paperwork is “still in processing,” but, pfft, you know how they can be.) So maybe I’m a little biased when I say this; maybe my perception is a bit skewed, but… Couldn’t we try being nice to them? Like a little? For, like, twenty seconds, people? It’s really not hard, I assure you. All you have to do is this: Don’t say and do really stupid shit. That’s it! Easy, right?

Come on, we figured out the wheel, god dammit, we can get this one right, too! Who’s with me?!
