>Bizarro is brought to you today by The Face of Fear.
Although I admit that I think Glenn Beck is a dangerous lunatic, I didn’t see this cartoon as particularly partisan. Mostly, it is just meant to describe Beck as someone who believes in The Devil and would debate him if he could. Both of which I’d guess are true. And most readers did not take offense or I would have gotten more complaints. As it is, I only received one comment on this cartoon and I’m not sure it was even a complaint, per se. It follows, in its entirety, minus the signature.
“I like Bizarro in my daily newspaper. I like Glenn Beck better.”
I assume this person thought this cartoon was vaguely offensive to Beck, but I’m not sure in what way. If you’re a follower of Beck’s and believe him to be a sensible person in control of his mental faculties, what would be offensive about this? I can’t see it. Perhaps it is the fact that this cartoon is only actually humorous to those of us who see him as insane and fans of his find this notion offensive in and of itself. Which I suppose I can understand.
For readers who like both Bizarro and Beck, I hope I haven’t lost you on this. I’ve given up on hoping that anything I say or do will ever contribute to sensible politics on planet Earth, I’m just resigned to trying to make people laugh, make a living and sleep indoors. The overwhelming majority of my cartoons are not political so there’s still plenty to enjoy.
