2008 Nerd For McCain
posted by October 2 at 15:00 PMon
Two days ago, when I said in a post about a group of comic book artists for Obama that a lot of comics fans are conservative, someone commented:
Nerds are conservative? That’s silly.
Comics are apolitical? Also silly.
Well, yesterday, comics fansite Newsarama posted a story about Comics Industry for Obama, including an interview with CIfO founder Eric Powell, the creator of The Goon, which is a very funny comic book. Many of the comments on the story—I’m pretty sure a majority of them—prove my point:
Wow, more media and artists bringing their political agenda into their work (where it usually doesn’t belong). I’m shocked. Whether you like Obama or not, the media is so clearly biased on his behalf, it isn’t even funny. Actually, it is the opposite of funnyl. I guess this bothers me a lot less than having actual journalists who are supposed to present the facts or both sides of an issue being in the tank for one candidate, but it is essentially more of the same.
Well, I guess I won’t be reading the Goon or the Savage Dragon anymore. Adios.
Democrat, Republican, they’re just different sides of the same coin. Wake up people.
I want to know something,Mccain and Obama have never clearly stated their plan to help ease the economy. Both fuddle their words and give no concrete answers..
Ask Obama what he plans to do to heal the economy. This is his reply “time for a change” “it is not about me,but what you can do for everybody” Catch phrases are cute,but they are not an answer to a serious problem
Eric Powell is a pig who’d better watch his back when this is all over.
But this one is my favorite:
Yes, the dark gods of Cthulhu demand you vote for Ralph Nader.
