In today's thrilling installment, boys and girls, the mad scientist Dr. Wilbur von Philbert is visited by Ricky Dumbass (R-TX), Bachmann Moron Overdrive (R-MN), and Captain Orange (R-OH). The mad scientist sends the 3 geniuses off on a time-travel expedition to kill more dinosaurs in the distant past so that there will be more oil in the ground in 2011. Oops. As the 'toonist himself wrote today:
I know, I know it's an utterly implausible cartoon. Republicans would never seek out answers from a scientist. And obviously Michele Bachmann would insist that they need travel no further than six thousand years [in the past] to reach the dawn of time....
If this is a (fair & balanced) tribute to Ray Bradbury's "A Sound of Thunder" (1952), so be it.
