    I want that T shirt. Where can I get one?

    I've spent the week in Europe. Everywhere I go I hear people saying the problem is the result of free markets. The meaning of "capitalism" was destroyed in 1929 when everyone blamed their woes on it, now the term "free market" is being destroyed the same way.

    We need to counteract this, and a tee-shirt like this is one way. We can also counteract this by associating the crash with Bush's neo-fascist corporatism.

    Why is Bush a Vulcan revolutionary?

    Are you sure you ever left the states?

    Me too!

    I want one of those T-Shirts!

    I thought about doing it myself but I can't
    draw so I'd just have to lift it from here
    and I think it would violate copyright from Chip Bok.

    Wow! Best Friday Funnies in as long as I can remember. Not actually ha ha funny, but good. Who is this Scott Stantis fellow? Maybe all our carping has paid off.

  • Christ on a Cracker||

    Why is Alfred E. Newman on the fat guy's shirt?

  • rhywun||

    Benefit from my bailout you shall.

    The overall cartoon isn't great but the t-shirt concept redeems all.

  • JMR||

    People here bitch A LOT about Friday Funnies, but this one goes in the "damn good, and damn funny" category for me.

  • JMR||

    PS IMO Christ on a Cracker wins the thread, and count me among those who'd buy that T-shirt (XL, please) in a heartbeat. Chip Bok, the market gods are telling you something -- "MAKE THAT SHIRT!"

  • ||

    JMR & roversaurus: What does Chip Bok have to do with this?

  • ||

    It's true but it's not that funny. Still, not bad, and it beats Chip Bok like a red-headed stepchild.

  • JMR||

    Crap, it was Stantis!

  • Citizen Nothing||

    I actually chuckled.

  • ||

    The Bushguevara is not a new idea. Still, T-shirts are a nice idea.

  • Citizen Nothing||

    But, but, he's like the most free market, deregulationary president evah, no?

  • ||

    Looks more like Mr. Tumnus to me.

  • ||

    Does it count as suicidal that hearing all the anti-free market crap makes me want to jump off a tall building and land on some commie demonstrator?

    count me among those who'd buy that T-shirt

    It's a simple process to download the image, separate the Bush character from the shirt, enlarge it, clean it up and take it to a screen printer to make a 1-color screen. Buy some cheap Ts in bulk and you could double your money, but you'd better hurry. After the election you won't be able to give them away. There's also that pesky copyright problem, but libertarians have abandoned that concept, haven't they. Ironic, no?

    Information wants to be free!

  • economist||

    I don't know if I buy the whole Bush as a Che Guevara figure thing. I think government involvement has created a clusterfuck, but there are different varieties of statist intervention, even in economic matters. Just saying.

  • Wes Winham||

    I'm sooo making that t-shirt.

  • voxpo||

    Ironic, no?

    No.

  • ||

    "but there are different varieties of statist intervention, even in economic matters. Just saying."

    No, what exactly are you saying?

  • the innominate one||

    good one, but I think this means that reason agrees with Chavez

  • Paul||

    I want that T shirt. Where can I get one?

    Word... x10.

  • Paul||

    Reinmoose... Snap!

  • ||

    Quite funny indeed. I'd like one of those shirts just to stick it to all these socialists-for-the-image people here in San Francisco.
    "Wait, capitalists can really hate George Bush?"

  • ||

    I think pasting George W Peron's mug on a picture of Mussolini reviewing the troops would be better.

  • Oregon Scott||

    Yes! I want that t-shirt, too! :)
