Happy Trails!

Is it just me, or has The Atlantic become our one-stop shop for tone-deaf shit takes? My current favorite clunker concerns the fascist abortion law in Texas, and its potential to turn out the vote for the Democrats. Yeah, that’s right — Texas has gone full-on fascist with this shit, a fistful of other states are reportedly considering going that way, and the Democrats’ number one priority is — exploiting encroaching fascism to rustle up votes and money for the midterms, and herd the Left back into the Party. Git along, little dogies. H’yahhh.

if you are playing games with repoduction rights to stick it to the other side in the midterms then you’re not fighting for anyone’s rights, you’re fighting for your own power.
And while we see you doing nothing in power except offering empty promises for when you get more,
no

In the past couple of weeks or so, the cocky talk has been replaced by increased amounts of desperate scolding, hectoring, pleading, shaming, browbeating, practically screaming at us to vote.

Mind you, the Democrats haven’t given us anyone or anything to vote for since about 1972, and nowhere was this fact more glaring than in the past twenty-odd years since Bill’n'Hillary showed up and sucked all the oxygen out of the place.

So, here they are now, with no real record of progressive achievement in the past thirty years to point to, no real vision of a better future, pretty much nothing except to run against Russia and constantly scream at us to vote all friggin’ day and night.

…and, while inspired by the Post headline, here’s the song that was stuck in my head as I drew this; everybody has sappy old tunes they love in spite of themselves, and this is one of mine:
