In 2010, Tom Tomorrow (Dan Perkins) introduced a new character in "This Modern World": Chuckles The Sensible [Liberal] Woodchuck and today, the 'toon features a colloquy between Chuckles and Sparky The Wonder Penguin. Chuckles wears his pompous bow tie for faux gravitas. and Sparky wears his Inuit-style goggles to ward off bull$hit-blindness. Appropriately garbed, the pair who represent the Right and Left wings of US liberalism as Chuckles gives voice to the inevitablist jargon spouted by The Hillster and her minions who are feeling The Bern lately. If this is a (fair & balanced) call to the barricades, so be it.
