“People want higher taxes on the rich you blockhead!”

That really got me giggling.

There are many interesting ways this can yet go. Twists on the ol’ football gag, or maybe synergies with “Donald & John”. But of course it is abundantly clear now that humor potential, no matter how great, should not excuse lingering on the political stage.

The first panel is a reference to the first ever Peanuts comic, maybe the best single-day funny pages strip ever.

On the one hand, Schultz is an asshole.

On the other hand, if your chosen political party is not actively working towards moving your state towards ranked choice voting, you are in no position to complain about spoilers, and doing so is a fundamentally dishonest way of arguing for preserving the status quo without actually having to come out and say what you mean.

This is absolutely brilliant. Having the first panel be a beat for beat recreation of the first ever Peanuts strip is awesome. Up there with the Donald and John strips and the Richard Scarry busy town parody.

And having Pig Pen show up as teh Poors is sublime.

Starbucks coffee doesn’t taste like battery acid. It is kina burned (though I quite like it myself), whereas battery acid just tastes extremely tart.

Not really; I have a degree in chemistry, and in the course of that process, through various mishaps, people occasionally end up tasting and smelling things they absolutely shouldn’t, like sulfuric acid.

Howard Schultz is in the lower right quadrant of the “political compass” (a non-partisan version of the “Nolan chart”). As you can see, very few of the voters are in that quadrant.

I don’t think it’s based on that test, unless there are millions of silent anarcho-communists in the USA.

Probably not. If you taste battery acid, it’s the last thing your ever taste.

I generally remove batteries from my mouth long before they get to that state.
