So, I’m hanging out with a lot of happy midwesterners at the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells. Enjoying my Paul Bunyan breakfasts and waterparks galore. Everything is just lovely until I page through the funnies and run into this gem from Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller:
“Everyone here is granted one wish? That’s so cool!”
“Well, not always. See that man over there? He was a strict constitution originalist on the Supreme Court and wished to see all the amendments removed.”
“Clarence, be a good slave and fetch me some coffee.”
“And who’s that guy who owns him?”
“That’s Antonin Scalia. He made the same wish.”
Now, let me tell you something. There’s ugly and there’s stupid. And there’s ugly and stupid. This comic by Wiley Miller hits on both cylinders.
First, a constitutional originalist has nothing against amendments to the constitution since they are provided for in the text itself. Second, the hatefulness of presenting Clarence Thomas as a self-destructive slave wannabe and Scalia as a hopeful slave owner is simply disgusting. I cannot imagine an attack of similar vehemence from a conservative writer passing without complete exile from polite company.
See you in the not-so-funny papers.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
