No point in writing any more about this week’s Dustinland comic, considering it’s already a pretty lengthy rant in itself. But yeah, pretty self explanatory. I would imagine you either love it or hate it, depending on your political views, so feel free to heartily agree or to troll me mercilessly. Either way, good times.

Like I say in this week’s political Dustinland comic, it’s so easy to just tell people what they already believe. Orwell said it in 1984. It’s also known as pandering, as I said in this old comic published in MAD Magazine, but current Republicans seem to have a nice grip on a pseudo populist version of pandering that appeals to our laziest and most selfish of urges. Why sacrifice? Why learn about things? It’s not really complicated. It’s SIMPLE. The answers are easy. The way to run things in a way where everyone wins and no one has to really change anything about they way they live is right in front of us. Hey man, that’s an appealing message. I’d love to follow it—if it wasn’t complete fantasy BS.
As for Trump, I love him. Because he’s blowing up the Republican party. It’s hilarious. During debates you just see Jeb Bush and Rand Paul fuming. Especially Paul. He’s like, ” I was supposed to be the crazy anti government one breaking all the rules and thinking outside the box!” Then Trump came in and made him seem like a boring seven-term senator from South Dakota. It’s all very entertaining—and not too scary. I would be more scared if Deez Nuts didn’t have comparable poll numbers. And at least the guy is even giving hedge fund managers shit. Man, he really is the ultimate troll.

This week’s Dustinland casts the 2008 presidential hopefuls — Hollywood style. Some of the picks were easier to find than others. Obama and Bloomberg were probably the toughest, and Huckabee was tricky too. I’d have to say my favorites are Bruce Campbell as Romney and the dad from Frasier as Ron Paul. Oh, and as much as I love Dennis Kucinich and plan to vote for him in the primary, he really does kinda remind me of the midget from Twin Peaks (that’s who Michael J. Anderson is, in case you were confused).
