The National Toaster Has Gone Ding

Here is a deconstruction of today's 'toon by our cartonnist-in-residence

Panel 1 - The Chicken Hawk (R-AZ) and the Toy Boy (R-SC) Sing Their Terrorist Duet
Panel 2 - Droney the Friendly Drone Vists A Post-Coital Couple
Panel 3 - The Rationale For Not Closing Gitmo
Panel 4 - An Airline Passenger About To Receive The Latest TSA Invasion O'Privacy
Panel 5 - A Pair Of Gun-Nuts Respond To Gun-Related Deaths: "$hit happens."

Tom Tomorrow concludes the entire horrifying mess with the fact that Terrorist-caused deaths since 1970 total 3,400 compared to annual gun deaths' totaling 30,000 victims; the annual total (since 1970) of Terrorist-caused deaths is 79.

We are toast. The inmates are running the asylum. If this is a (fair & balanced) diagnosis of national mental health, so be it.
