Hunter_Worthington: Twigz221: That chart is horribly inaccurate. it has left leaning parties represented in modern times. We haven't had a left leaning party in this country in decades. Just right, and really far right.

Yeah, that FDR guy sure was an asshole...

You know, if you've got something to say, I've found that verbs can help a lot, especially when used in sentences.

Same challenge for you as for the other xkcd haters...link us a better we comic.

None of them stepped up last time we had one of these threads, so the bar's pretty low...


Well, I like xkcd, so I don't really fit. Bearing that in mind:

Girl Genius
Goblins
Problem Sleuth (I enjoy Homestuck as well, but, uh... it's a hard thing to get into at this point, to say the least)
Sinfest
Basic Instructions
Bob the Angry Flower

All great comics. I also like Penny Arcade but, uh, no one needs a LINK to that.

The Flexecutioner: RoyBatty:in your mind it is just a cartoon. and that's a shame. so is your definition of a good graphic and role of legends. you indeed do america proud.


Heh. In your mind xkcd is something other than a cartoon.

Got it.

Hunter_Worthington: I was thinking more inline with 1960's British Labour Party, or 1980's French Socialist Party policies, but please, continue attacking your straw men if it helps you get up in time to catch the school bus in the morning.


The post you made that irritated everyone implied that all left-leaning parties were disastrous, not just a couple of obscure, far-left foreign parties from several decades ago. If that's the standard you're using, we should avoid electing any right-leaning party due to the actions of the right-leaning Independent Democratic Union party in Chile in the 1970's or the Nationalists in Spain in the 1940's.

/there was another right-leaning European party in the 1940's that wasn't particularly spiffy, but people tend to dislike comparisons to it

MisterRonbo: Many, many right wing sites I've seen claim Democrats took the Senate in "2006" and the recession started in "2008", in an attempt to put some daylight between Republicans controlling the White House, the House of Rep.s, and the Senate, and the start of the recession.


Citation needed.

pedrop357: un4gvn666: Yeah, that FDR guy sure was an asshole...

Yeah, actually he was. I like the court stacking proposals as they show just how slimy he really was.


Geez, I didn't know FDR was a slimy politician. In my mind, that completely de-legitimizes the entire New Deal. Next thing you know you'll tell me that sometimes LBJ wasn't completely honest!

XKCD frequently knocks it outta the park in creating large graphical representations of relations between things.

This isn't one of those things.
