Bill Emett

After years of writing, painting poorly, and drawing even more poorly, Bill Emett has combined those dubious skills with an abiding interest in politics and society and created one semi-palatable package in the political-social comic strip, The Palatables.

With Rick Santorum opposing sodomy and gay marriage, he needs a new slogan

Rick Santorum, who just tied for the lead in the Iowa Republican caucus, is a vehemently anti-gay marriage, anti “sodomy” crusader.Factoring in that “sodomy” includes premarital sex, Rick Santorum, a “small government, anti business regulation” Republican, still believes that government should be big enough to govern over how individuals live their personal and sexual lives. With that kind of hypocrisy, a new slogan is in order. Special thanks to Dan Savage for “calling it like it is,” and single-handedly making it impossible for such a hater of humanity to ever be elected president of the United States..

When politicians act like circus clowns, they should get paid like clowns.

As Washington DC grows more like an absurd drunk-sailor circus without a ring-master, debating payroll tax breaks endlessly while people suffer, it’s time to institute performance pay for politicians. If a politician does well for the people, pay him/her/it well, if he/she/it acts like a clown, make him/her/it pay the people back.
