After a week of ugly, bareknuckle politics from the GOP, and an appalling State of the Union speech from Barack Hussein Obama (assuming that's who he is), we here at Hope n' Change Cartoons were in desperate need of a little comic relief.
Which is why we're so glad that the Arecibo Observatory took time off this week from looking for extraterrestrials and instead used their radio telescopes to intercept a particularly amusing transmission from Planet Pelosi.
In it, Queen Nancy (who, interestingly, has no eyelids) gleefully declared that she and only she knows a horrible secret which assures that Newt Gingrich will never be King of the Earthlings. She then cackled until she grew breathless and had to take several deep hits off a tank of carbon botoxide, which is what her world uses for air.
To his credit, Newt is laughing off the entire thing and daring Nancy to "bring it on." Which could genuinely mean that he's got nothing to hide or, alternately, that he knows she would suffer just as much political damage as he would if she reveals that they did a helluva lot more than just sit together on that sofa, billing and cooling about the importance of cap and trade legislation.
Frankly, Hope n' Change would like to say we're surprised that Pelosi is actually able to get airtime solely on the strength of saying "I know something that I'm not telling," but sadly that amounts to pretty solid journalism in these sad times.
Even if it is running mostly on the SyFy channel.
