Andy Kindler is hilarious. Andy’sdorkdom is to dissect famous people’s careers. He also loves an indie comic book. This is the snarkiest episode of the dork forest. Man… it’s so great. We get political and Then Auggie Smith does his LCS audition and his George Lopez set. Oh Hollywood. Heh. Enjoy.

The problems I have with Obama are mostly b/c I hate war and I expect heroes to give back executive powers that were created under previous admistrations. Lucky for me I know Obama is no hero. He's a Moderate Democrat… he’s doing that job. I stand by my statements.

    I thought you said "shirt costume" instead of "shark costume" at first, heh. I'm fan of these comics on comics episodes!

    Did I just hear a Great Lakes Avengers comic book reference?

    THIS is why I listen.

    And "libertarian" was originally a term for anarchists of the leftish persuasion, particularly the labor-oriented anarchosyndicalists...I'd countersuggest that capitalist libertarians are not so much so far right that they're leftist, but that they even out somewhere in the political center, if the center is balancing the rights of individuals versus large collective organizations, whether those be statist or corporate...though, for example, Karl Hess, the Goldwater speechwriter in '64 who went on to help organize the Libertarian Party in the US, was before that both hanging out with a bit, and dressing and sounding a bit like, the New Leftists of the late '60s. But he was unusual in this regard. Certainly William F. Buckley and other conservatives who actually were conservatives rather than reactionaries (Reagan, Cheney, that whole crew) often had some libertarian sympathies as well.

    Wow...more words per minute, faster even (I think) than the previous show, than any since the crafty, all-women Altman-style layered dialog show. Much to comment on, ranging from Harvey Kurtzman didn't lose MAD from a court dispute so much as a dispute with the publisher William Gaines (as your link ably informs) to I think you would dig the sometimes autobiographical, not always, comics of the likes of Mary Fleener, Roberta Gregory, Carol Lay, et al....and that while I agree that following our worst President ever is no joy, the only reason Barack Obama was preferable to me as a leftist and frequent registered Green to HR Clinton was that he was Going to End the Wars and otherwise turn back, as you note, the Executive Branch overreaching/reinforcement of the National Security State that his recent predecessors had been so careful to cultivate. So far, not so much, even with the rather ambiguous Ends of the warfare...yes, it's sad that even John Edwards put forward a better platform than Obama, and that Gravel and Kucinich put forward vastly better platforms...so vastly better that it's a great pity "better" candidates than they didn't get behind them, particularly Gravel's, which was better than Nader's in some ways. So, I was never "betrayed" by Obama, but am rather unimpressed with those who insisted and who insist that he has ever been the Left in the US, and that he was the only choice we had if leftist ourselves. I suspect that between the GOP establishment choice of Romney and the insurgent imbecile (and not simply because I disagree almost completely with his every utterance, but because he genuinely is an idiot) Santorum, that Obama will sail to re-election, and will have been just another reasonably conservative Democrat, who, like the last two conservative Democratic Presidents, will leave the country worse for wear, have done little or nothing to lessen the country's ownership by the recently highlighted 1%, but are clung to as the less insane alternative to the complete and utter tools of the 1% that the GOP has been since Reagan. It's a Very sad commentary that Nixon has been our best labor president since his administration, to make only one observation that REALLY should be ridiculous...and, at too many levels, is...because it's true.

    Pre-show auditing: Yup, that Dylan Ratigan, those YOUNG TURKS. Jimmy Dore has guest-hosted THE YOUNG TURKS show, has some video excerpts up at his pages.
