So, the new rising star of the GOP is a former pizza chain CEO….who has a 9-9-9 plan. Do you guys think Herman Cain will wind up as the Republican nominee when all is said and done? And do you think he could actually beat Barack Obama in anything other than a pizza baking contest? Click the comic to enlarge.
2day’s somber comic focuses on the fates of two individuals. One individual allegedly murdered her daughter and then hid her body in the trunk of her car. When she appeared in court, there was a mountain of evidence and the defense appeared to have an open and shut case. The other individual allegedly murdered a cop two decades ago, and was convicted based on a mountain of statements from eyewitnesses and was sentence to death; only now, several of the witnesses have said that they were coerced into making false statements. Which person do you think ultimately got off and which person do you think is facing death by lethal injection tonight? And what’s even weirder is the fact that despite all kinds of mentions the last few days, the second individual in question, Troy Davis isn’t trending, but the first, Casey Anthony, is. While I don’t confess to knowing if Davis commited the crime or not, I believe he does deserve a retrial at the very least. Click the comic to enlarge.
To encompany this special strip, I thought it would only be fitting to include the song that I was listening to as I was drawing this strip. What are your thoughts on this story? Do you think justice is being served?
Today’s funny new Keep the Change comic strip deals with the recent revelations that former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin had an one night stand with former NBA star Glen Rice in the late 80s. Personally, I don’t see the big deal, but given how the media loves to run with a story, could you imagine how blown out of proportion this story would have been during the 2008 presidential race? I’m sure someone (like
Fox Faux News) would have gone crazy with this story. Click the comic to enlarge.
In a very surprising verdict, Casey Anthony was found not guilty in the death of her daughter, Caylee Anthony. Prosecutors in the case were unable to establish how Caylee Anthony was killed , nor were they able to find Casey Anthony’s DNA on the duct tape that was allegedly used to suffocate Caylee. In the end, the lack of evidence doomed the persecution, who was able to prove that Casey was a liar, but nothing else. Click the pic to enlarge.
Where do you think the persecution went wrong? Do you think Anthony’s lawyer, Jose Baez, did that good of a job planting doubt in the juror’s minds or the persecution simply blundered this case?
