This is one of those obvious points, you know, the kind where a cartoonist like Matt Wuerker might feel somehow obliged, as a matter of simple duty, to remind that just because ideas or behavior might seem mundane cannot be taken to mean they are not extraordinary. That is to say, among works of genius we rarely place such cartoons, but neither is that the point.
“I kicked a giant mouse in the butt!” Homer declared. “Do I have to draw you a diagram?”
Yes, sometimes people need pictures.
Of course, that is the wonderful thing about human frailty, isn’t it? Certain Republicans would just be offended by the notion.
By “certain”, of course, we mean, “seemingly all of them”. Then again, that’s not exactly true either. The Republican Party and its affiliated community are not entirely devoid of minds and consciences capable of understanding the critique.
The question for them is what they can do about it. This is not an enviable conundrum.
