Sight Gags” is our weekly nod to the ironic and carnivalesque in a vibrant democratic public culture.  We typically will not comment beyond offering an identifying label, leaving the images to “speak” for themselves as much as possible.  Of course, we invite you to comment … and to send us images that you think capture the carnival of contemporary democratic public culture.

Sight Gag: In the Name of Proper Deficit Spending

    This comic makes no sense. It’s the Democrats who have quadrupled Bush’s deficit and created record debt. Bush was a liberal spender. The Republicans were against his spending, the Democrats were all for it. And then Obama went and quadrupled the deficit after only 5 months of being in office. But it was Obama, so, you know, we’ll give him a pass.

    Also, when you pay people to not work, you discourage them from trying to work. Pelosi even encouraged people to quit their jobs if they wanted to pursue a hobby of theirs, ’cause the government will now take care of them.

    They’ve created a class of moochers who now believe they don’t need to be ambitious or work hard. They’ve reenacted slavery, created a people enslaved to the government. It’s the most anti-lower-class, anti-minority policy around, to encourage joblessness.
