Tom Tomorrow brings us "Conservative Jones" and "Moonbat McWacky" to clarify the Dumbo/Teabagger position on disaster relief. Thanks to Wikipedia (the fount of all knowlege), here's some explication:
Beginnning in 1963, Donald J. Sobol created Leroy "Encyclopedia" Brown, boy detective, in a long series of children's novels. Only his parents and teachers call Leroy by his given name (which he dislikes); the rest of the neighborhood children refer to him as "Encyclopedia" because of his penetrating mind. "This Modern World" is a parallel universe and in that world, Tom Tomorrow gives us "Conservative Jones," Boy Detective. Jones has a trusty sidekick, "Moonbat McWacky," just as Sherlock Holmes had Dr. John Watson.
All Hee-Haws, starting with the POTUS 44, need to man up and grow some cojones. The POTUS 44 can lead the way in the upcoming message to Congress later this week: (echoes of FDR) "Many of you hate me for the color of my skin and I welcome your hatred!" On that note, the POTUS 44 should exit the House chamber via a back door and return to the White House to speak to the people of the United States of America: "My fellow Americans, I told the Dumbos/Teabaggers in Congress tonight where they could stick their Balanced Budget Amerndment...." As for Conservative Jones, he can stick his magnifying glass where the sun don't shine. If this is the (fair & balanced) time for blunt speech, so be it.
