Partisan Trends: Number of Democrats Falls to All-Time Low. “The number of Republicans in the country increased by a percentage point in December, while the number of Democrats fell back two points to the lowest level ever recorded by Rasmussen Reports.” Doesn’t really matter since most dems vote twice anyway.

This is purely generalization, but based on party planks, why should anyone be surprised when one party is pro-life and the other supports murdering its voting bloc?

Hey gang. Apropos of exactly nothing, I have something to share. I just came into a real treasure trove, an archive of just about every MAD Magazine that ever was, right from the beginning. Was looking through this one from 1969 (which I kinda remembered in part) and this “Lighter Side” bit somehow reminded me of last year’s Occupied tantrum:

The more things change, what?

The EVIL establishment here at IHTM.com keeps us locked in a room AND we have to share an old commodore 64 to post stuff…. so good luck.

Probably becase of bandwidth issues. If they would dump all of Oblivious’ mile long posts, we would have the room for pics. The other issue would be someone abusing the privilege and posting up porn.

Actually, it shows how much things have changed. Once a symbol of clueless buffoonery, now Alfred E. Newman is president.

But still a symbol of clueless buffoonery.

Berg was great.

Yes….”Mad Magazine” was great about producing anthologies of the comics of Dave Berg, Don Martin and Sergio Aragones. All three were geniuses in my opinion.

I actually just dropped about 50 bucks buying up a bunch of the old Don Martin books, his own stuff that was never in Mad. There is also a coffee-table/collector’s volume of all his stuff that appeared in Mad, along with notes, sketches, and other miscellany. All over on Amazon.

Dave Berg, Don Martin and Sergio Aragones are possibly the smartest cartoonists ever. I grew up on Mad and loved their stuff.

This is exactly what I have been trying to tell the young’uns in the crowd. 1) this has all happened before and will all happen again and 2) revolution is just someone wanting to be in charge instead of whoever is currently in charge. Nothing changes!

Over at Fark.com , there was a posting that the number of people who believe Obama was born on December 25th is down to 9 % , which was a huge drop .

Reality based thinking must be a bitch to that crowd .

If more of them drove the Chevy Volt, numbers would decrease dramatically.

I expect that number to decline even more. You can only cover up bullshit for so long before the smell starts to come through.

Kinda like a landfill. They found that they had to vent them when they capped them, because they would build up pressure and blow! Unfortunately, you can smell them a mile off.

Number of Democrats Falls to All-Time Low.

In related news, the average IQ nationwide has increased.

At least a portion of those are likely still Dems, just bent on interfering in GOP primaries.

Simply amazing. So they are saying that there are 2% fewer dead in this country?

My mind. It has been blown.
