December 22, 2009 at 1:57 am That’s what I’d call too much “hutzpa”… Vinny Uncle Billy Cunctator December 22, 2009 at 2:27 am Props to “Redleg” http://baselinescenario.com/2009/12/15/wake-up-gentlemen/#comment-36083 Advocatus Diaboli December 22, 2009 at 2:30 am Where are the hoofs and pointy tail? Vinny G. December 22, 2009 at 4:26 am We all should feel very proud today after reading this bit on Bloomberg: “Taxpayers Help Goldman Reach Height of Profit in New Skyscraper” http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601109&sid=aaLwI2SKYQJg&pos=14 I have a feeling this arrogance will end badly for these criminals. Vinny Diego December 22, 2009 at 5:24 am You fell in love with her beauty. You took her obvious lies as the most sacred truth. You put everything (house, bank accounts, cars) in her name. Just some months later, she’s left you for that arrogant Latin lover and has moved to Madrid to spend what was *your* money. You want to kill her. Sorry, lad. You’ve been a fool. Get over it. Don’t make matters worse by becoming a criminal. Cynthia December 22, 2009 at 11:31 am Notice that this holiday cartoon contains a mosque in the distance. This reminds me that by ordering cruise missile attacks on two locations in Yemen, our Nobel Peace Prize-winning president has expanded his war beyond the Stans: http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/glenn_greenwald/2009/12/21/terrorism/index.html And I must say that Jeremy Scahill is right in describing the Democrats from the left wing of the War Party as “cruise missile” liberals: http://antiwar.com/radio/2009/08/01/jeremy-scahill-3/ daveNYC December 22, 2009 at 12:35 pm I’m not sure what the building is, but given the date, it’s impossible for it to be a mosque. mclaugh December 22, 2009 at 1:00 pm Uh … dude … you DO realize that, “given the date,” it’s ALSO impossible for a Goldman Sachs rep to be there, too, DON’T YOU??? Cynthia December 22, 2009 at 1:09 pm You’re right, of course. But I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to learn that the cartoonist intentionally put a mosque in this cartoon of his in order to add an additional layer of humor to it.;~) alex December 22, 2009 at 3:27 pm In keeping with the spirit of the season it’s a hopeful cartoon. When that kid grows up he’s going to throw that bastard out of the temple. Comments are closed. Tip Jar Please Donate or Subscribe!
