"Get Your Pal Out"

Latest comic - click here!

There a lot of things to be thankful for, but as far as politics goes, I can't think of anything worth celebrating more than how wrong I was about Sarah Palin. In my wildest dreams I never would have imagined she would just suddenly disappear. Maybe I'm jinxing it--maybe she'll reappear in a few weeks with some bizarre new scheme or TV show, but for now, it's just amazing. No one gave her a show. She's done with the book tour. No one cared. No one does. No one will. Thank you, universe.

When I woke up a few mornings ago and it suddenly occured to me that the entire planet collectively stopped giving a damn about Palin almost overnight, I had only one observation about it, and it rang in my head over and over and over. I wanted desperately to make a comic out of it but the problem in my way was that it was sort of already a comic David Rees did a few years ago. So I addressed this the professional way: I asked David if I could steal his comic and he said sure, go ahead. David went as far as to say he would be "honored" if I did this, which I can only find both ironic and terribly, terribly backwards. Thanks, David.

And with that, Happy Thanksgiving. Next comic in two weeks.
