How dumb can Dumbo voters be? How high is up? How many bubbles are in a bar of soap? These are equivalent questions. However, the limitless stupidity of those who vote Dumbo (GOP) is limned in the rise of Newtron as the Dumbo frontrunner to oppose the POTUS 44 in 2012. Most incredibly, the Religious Right, holding family values über alles, are supporting Newtron as the flavor of the month. Tom Tomorrow lists all of Newtron's endearing qualities in today's 'toon. In 1996, Newtron provided the Dumbos (and Teabaggers) with a list of descriptive terms for Democrats: anti-flag, anti-child, anti-family, bizarre, pathetic, sick, and traitor. In the interest of equal time, this blogger has a few descriptive terms for Newtron: hypocrite, sleazeball, scumbag, bizarre, pathetic, sick, and traitor. If this is (fair & balanced) sauce for the goose/gander, so be it.
