Get Your War On
David Rees created a bit of a stir a few years ago when he created his comic, Get Your War On, which features corporate clip art and sardonic wit used to deadly effect in its parsing of political language--specifically that of the Bush administration in the run-up to the second Gulf War. The strip features corporate drones using highly eloquent, deeply profane language to get across the absurdities of the double-speak employed by Bush and his cronies.
Now these strips are given new life on the 23/6 web site. Some evil genius has created animations of the comics. These, like their stationary counterparts, are funny, angry, and profane, and, best yet, they're commenting on the current election. Please only go and watch them if foul language and complete irreverence toward our government aren't offensive to you.
