Canon or not, it really was  the perfect storm of comic-dom.  Characters we know saying things we wanted to hear (well, from Dora, anyway - never saw Marten as the toy collector type) and Pintsize pulling a prank not only of epic proportions, but downright amorally cruel.   Threatened violence from Faye, and even a Pizza Girl appearance! 

I'll say this for Randy - he doesn't do it in his own comic, but he sure knows how to do fanservice!

I hope I'm not crossing the line into the frowned-upon political zone, but....

Places like Wisconsin have long been a beacon of hope for many of us union supporters who live in "right-to-work" states.  I'm also sorry, JW.  This is scary stuff. When all the shit started hitting the fan up there with the legislators going into hiding, my first thought was "oh, christ, not Wisconsin! - how could this happen there of all places?" 
Simple:  that very history makes us (yes, I am also Wisconsinite) the biggest and most crucial target.  'nuff said.

I hadn't thought of it that way, but now I think you are absolutely right. I wonder why that "targeting" approach tends to work so much better from the right than from the left.  Somehow I don't see an inverted scenario working very well.  Like maybe a concerted effort to legalize gay marriage in Alabama.  um, yeah. that'll work. :mrgreen:

EDIT: I know I'm treading on thin ice here - I really need to hit 100 posts so I can unlock the DISCUSS forum.  Or is that a myth? :?

No, that's correct; although it's not stated clearly anywhere, I can confirm that at present the Discuss forum becomes available when you have 100 posts.

Well, philosophically, the left has never been able to attack unless provoked.  The tendency is to appeal to reason, not fear.  So something so coordinated is really anathema, you can't coordinate rational thought.  It's the old "herding cats" scenario. 

I realize some may be offended by my implication that the right bases its tactics on fear.  Please remember that conservatism is, by definition, a resistance to change.  The desire to leave things alone, though not unsupported by reason, is often a decision based on fear, whether based on the rhetoric of others or bad experiences with past changes.  The desire may be to stop current change, or roll back recent changes, or even to to get rid of years/decades/centuries of change in certain areas.  And, while many changes have unintended results that can be a problem, these should be fixed, not undone.  Throwing out the baby with the bathwater is never a good idea!

"targeting" by its nature is suited to an "anti" position and not a "pro" or inclusive position. It's all about THEM and what THEY'll do to you unless THEY're stopped.

There's no longer a written rule against politics, since the Discuss subforum came into being. Still, there are many places to discuss politics on the web that aren't a webcomic message board.
