The Brits are freer and easier about this sort of thing than our own “progressives” because they haven’t internalized the cultural fear of a visit from the Secret Service. Last year’s Bush snuff-udrama came from the UK, and now you can thank Briton Warren Ellis for this. Go read the description of the plot and be sure to enlarge that illustration of the blood-spattered Oval Office. Who’s that familiar face lying at the “hero’s” feet? Why, just the generic, unnamed president who started the generic, unnamed war that the hero took exception to. Apparently there’s a big moral quandary afterwards about whether he was right to tear the cabinet to pieces, so hey — redemption.
I prefer the way our own lefties deal with this issue: through a narcissistic delusional martyrdom complex.
