Liberality for All

There is new comic book (um... er... graphic novel... I'm not really sure) coming out called Liberality for All that's been getting some attention on the liberal blogs. Many of them laughing at this thing as proof that the right-wing propaganda mill as finally and utterly irrevocably lost its mind. I thought that maybe these bloggers were just somehow mistaking a satirical series as serious political alternate history. After clicking through the website, I found out I was wrong -- this is proof that the right-wing fearmongering camp is in fact completely nuts. The series concept, straight from the publisher website:

What if today's anti-war Liberals were in charge of the American government and had been since 9/11? What would that society look like in the year 2021? What would be the results of fighting "a more sensitive war on terror" and looking to the corrupt United Nations to solve all of America's problems? In Liberality For All, the reader sees a vision of that future where there is only one justified type of war... the war against Conservatives and their ideals.

We also learn that in Liberality for All #1:

It is 2021, tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of 9/11 It is up to an underground group of bio-mechanically enhanced conservatives led by Sean Hannity, G. Gordon Liddy and Oliver North to thwart Ambassador Usama Bin Laden's plans to nuke New York City ...And wake the world from an Orwellian nightmare of United Nations- dominated ultra-liberalism.

You can also find out from another page on the site that:

LIBERALITY FOR ALL is the first comic book directly marketed at the "vast right-wing" audience and the associated 100 million weekly listeners of conservative talk radio.

If you've spent any time listening to that sort of radio, you know that a huge percentage of those 100 million weekly listeners will not treat series as the camp that it really is. They're going to buy this shit up and revel in it like a jonesing crackhead who just found a lost wallet containing $300 in cash.

Oh, and be sure to check out the complete synopsis, which is all you really need to know about the ridiculousness of this planned eight-part series.

The Tankster

Someday very soon, Mrs. Moose and I need to either purchase or borrow a decent videocamera so we can get some footage of Tank dancing while he watches the Wiggles. The level of cuteness is just so overwhelming that we need to get it preserved before he loses any of the inhibition he now shows while dancing.
