 Post subject: [OT] Sore Thumbs Newsbox
PostPosted: Wed Nov 03, 2004 3:21 pm 
So who else here reads any Keenspot comics, saw the Sore Thumbs newsbox today, and felt a little warmer inside?

(Disclaimer: I voted for Kerry. I think that four more years of the guy who brought Cheney onto the ticket, picked Ashcroft, and didn't can Rumsfeld is awful. That doesn't mean I like Sore Thumbs, though.)

I saw the newsbox and thought it illustrated perfectly how biased and partisan Sore Thumbs is.

To represent the right, you have a crudely drawn, cartoonishly shaped belligerent prig. Very little internal detail. Linework is very crudely done.

To represent the left, you have a painstakingly-rendered, human-like proportions (except in certain areas) buxom vivacious young female. Lots of internal detail. Very aesthetically pleasing.

I’m definitely not looking forward to four more years of not being able to get away from these obnoxious ads of his.

(Disclaimer: I voted for Bush, but that doesn't mean I'm happy today. Just slightly less depressed. The fact that Bush is the most visible of the Republican party bothers me greatly.)

Eh, I dislike Bushes politics, but Cheney isn't as bad as people say he is. Ashcroft also used to be the main point of contact for the EFF in the government. I can't understand why he's abusing something that he opposed so much in the Clinton administration. I don't know if he's to blame or someone else. Rumsfeld... eh. Can em.
