I used to live with someone like this once. It was exhausting but also kind of fun since there was also an Air Force reservist in the same house. Pass the popcorn!

Ah, yes, the liberal caricature that is the hallmark of all conservative political comics. I like it. I prefer Ralph and Chuck, though.

Likewise in the reverse…

I know several “Beth”s.
That isn’t a caricature, it’s just an observation. Heck, most liberal opinion columns look like that.

We all know people like that.

I live in San Francisco. I know a zillion Beths.

From my partner in this endeavor, a bit of his latest post from the Hancock Inc. blog.

Everybody wants to classify you in some kind of box, “Conservative”, “Libertarian”, “Liberal”, “Republican”, “Democrat”, “Asshole”, something.
This is naturally worsened by a media complex that it hyper-defensive now of its own particular biases and all too willing to tear down those who disagree rather than go full on against the government, which is supposed to be its real opponent. The idea of a press is supposed to be total skepticism of anything any politician or political person says, not just the side they like.
See how it was under the later years of the Bush Administration for how it would work normally, with the media so far up that guy’s ass they blamed him for everything up to and including the weather. Now here comes Obama who they all personally like and mostly agree with politically, and they’ve got nothing to say on virtually any topic, whether it be the story of a century like colossal levels of negligence leading to an Ambassador’s death and a subsequent cover-up or an everyday bullshitting about how a slight reduction in the increase of spending next year will result in an apocalyptic misery.
Looping back around to the original point though, one of the things we want to do with this strip is our hope that we can create characters who show that not everyone is merely the sum of their opinions nor are they confined by the stereotypes one attributes to their political ideology. Both Beth and Hancock have had the parallel introduction of their political rantings, but we hope as time goes on you’ll see there’s more to both of them than…(insert pause to think of something other than “meets the eye”)…is visible on the surface.

Health care and tweeting and Russia, oh my!

Will they stay or will they go?

I can’t imagine what I was thinking when I said that

Rocking the boat majorly

Big government never contracts. It only grows more powerful

It’s only a “ban” until it becomes inconvenient

Cops alone won’t solve it.

Won’t be much left.

Your list of demands is a publicity stunt

“what happened that day was emblematic of a deeply troubling trend among progressives…”

“The jobs are still leaving. Nothing has stopped.”

Bad vendor. Bad! No cookie!

“The Corps is just starting to grapple with the issues the court has identified.”

“So you want me to sing my praises, is that what you’re saying?”

Why would we possibly want that?

“I mean he sold our country to The Russians.”

I could think of someone else you might want to ask about…
