At the time of this writing on Sunday evening, Hope n' Change Cartoons still doesn't know if Al-Qaeda and its affiliates will make good on their threat to commit a spectacular terrorist attack (or series of attacks) today in honor of the birthday of the man who's done so much to help them thrive: Barack Hussein Obama.
It's pretty hard to write pithy topical political commentary when you keep checking the news to see if New York is gone, if Chicago's water system has been poisoned, if a nuke has been launched to (perhaps permanently) take out our nation's electrical grid, if cropdusters are spraying anthrax overhead, or the first lady has announced a surprise pregnancy.
And the reason that our consulates are closed, terror warnings have been issued, and Americans are biting their nails today is because they know that Barry was lying when he said that he had Al-Qaeda "on the run." And that when this president declared an end to the War on Terror, it didn't mean the war was over - only that he, personally, was no longer interested in fighting it.
Americans are in fear today because they're realizing that this administration has not worked to make us safer...but has instead used increasingly invasive intelligence-gathering methods to make the government safer from voters.
We'd say more, but the echoing of these computer keys inside this concrete shelter is maddening - and besides, it's our turn to get back on the bicycle-powered generator that keeps the one lonely lightbulb flickering near the American flag on our wall.
The news media has officially gone from "dick uncovered" to "Duck and Cover."
