Gasp!!! CantMan Has Almost Annoyed MiddleMan!

What a cast of characters: MiddleMan (the POTUS 44), Captain Orange (House Speaker John Boner [R-OH]), the Human Turtle (Senate Minority Leader Mitch NoChin (R-KY), and CantMan (House Majority Leader Eric Cannot (R-VA). What a dilemma for the Dumbos: Greed Street says, "Deal" and the Teabaggers say, "No Deal." The Dumbos are squabbling among themselves and the clock is ticking. The last panel leaves some confusion. It is the burn-and-slash CantMan who refuses to back down from the entitlement reductions, not MiddleMan. MiddleMan has offered cuts in federal spending, but he has not placed Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid on the table. If we have (fair & balanced) fiscal lunacy — even with this correction, so be it.
