Ars Longa Fundraiser, Day Two: Let Us Now Haze Famous Men And Women

The Liar of Gothos
"I object to you. I object to intellect without discipline. I object to power without constructive purpose."  - Spock to Trelane
In addition to writing over these last 13 years, I've also done some graphics.  Quite a lot actually.  When my pen runs dry, let that part of my brain hit the hammock and let the digital doodling part run wild for a while.  So this year I thought I'd wrap my blogiversary fundraiser around the results of those labors and see how that goes.

My wife especially likes this one from 2007 --

-- because even then the dark road down which the GOP was plunging was perfectly clear:

There was this goober.

And Dumbses

And Dubya's boss, President Cheney

There was the Iron Loony.

And Holy Joe

We have been though Sarah Plain and Dumb together


And John McSame

And of course the granddaddy of mainstreaming Republican racism and hatespeech

The advocate of civilization...

The definer of civilization and leader (possibly) of the civilizing forces.


I've done a thousand of them.


And I very much hope you have enjoyed them over the years :-)

Behold, a Tip Jar!

I dunno man. Easter weekend. I'm guessing people are busy. Maybe want to take a couple of days off from the madhouse. I know I do :-)

I'm here! I do appreciate your photoshop skills, I never had the patience for it, myself. Spent hundreds of hours learning digital audio software, but the visual stuff knocked me flat.

David Brooks on the toilet may be my favorite

You misspelled
"Advocate of civilization
Definer of civilization
Teacher of the Rules of Civilization
Arouser of those who Fan Civilization
Organizer of the pro-civilization activists
Leader (Possibly) of the civilizing forces"
Hope this helps.

DG, your photoshop skills are top-notch. I say that as someone who's worked with plenty of talented designers in the fields of advertising/design.

I second the vote for David F*cking Brooks making poo on the toilet as one of your best. BTW - a thank you note and check are in the mail.

I was just reading BooMan commenting on some media douche who, naturally, thinks advertiser boycotts are a bridge too far. And BooMan has a good take, but he doesn't quite get it. You do. The advertiser boycotts, whether by the Parkland kids or Spocko, bypass the Both Sides formula. They point to some hateful, ugly thing and ask advertisers "Is this what you are paying for?" Normal people who are not constrained by the Both Sides paradigm are making judgement calls about what does and does not belong in the public discourse. And the media douches clutch their pearls. But even they probably don't know why. They think it's just about the money, and what happens when the Dittoheads come for them. As if that hasn't been tried already. This was always their job, that they refused to do.

Not enough.!
Must occupy thoughts of servants with something other than their own .

In the absence of the Gods. The self proclaimed mortal Gods expect more suffering of the masses that obedience to their genetic line rules eternal.

It is not enough for Pharaoh's slaves to spend their lives building pyramids in worship until death.

Pharaoh must place walls to obstruct to be overcome on the way to the work place to erect said pyramids.

To prove the worthiness and desire of true serving that Pharaoh may admire the devotion to him.

So it is spoken, So it is written.
