Garry Trudeau does it again. So what else is new, right? He’s been taking a lot of time off from his daily Doonesbury strip to work on his TV series “Alpha House,” so we’re left with only his Sunday strips to give us our fix.
Today he tackled the motivation behind the GOP’s fear-based election ads. Unless you live under a rock, you are familiar with those mini-horror films: Terrorism will get you! No, EBOLA will kill you!! No, wait, it’s those cantaloupey-calfed, thuggy, drug-dealingy, smelly, icky “illegals” that you should be afraid– VERY afraid– of!! Now get to the polls and vote Republican QUICK! Before the Democrats and their terrorist pals and evil illnesses make you all DIE!! OH MY GOD!!!!! GAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
