FTFA:  "Johnny Carson used to joke that the least-uttered sentence in the English language was "Isn't that the banjo player's Porsche?" But that was before legion of well-heeled hipsters began taking up the incest guitar."

HA!

I like this idea. We just keep laughing at them until they get all butthurt and go home.

Well, they do have skinny genes.

And all this time I thought Republicans were like the guy in porn who just watches, while his wife's organs are rearranged by an Alabama Python.

Here's something a Farker wrote about 2 months ago:

"I am starting to believe that the Tea Party are the Hipsters of the Republican party. No one likes them; they intentionally attack things that are different than their own individual points of view; they dress in mismatched clothing that was taken from old, forgotten eras of history and claim it as their own; they attack each other for not being 'Conservative enough'; and everything they do isn't for their own benefit but to show others how crazy they can be."

I don't remember which Farker wrote this, but major Kudos to you.

I liked the part where he called Sip E Cupp  a "trust-fundamentalist". That amused me.

Hey, the budget got balanced when he was speaker of the house.

I mean, say what you will about the tenants of National Socialism but at least it's an ethos.

Though before I forget, I have to add that the sentences I wrote were in reference to how the Tea Party resembles Hipsters. The Republicans are pretty much the wealthy trust fund kids who see how popular and "cool" (or whatever the new term for cool the Hipsters are using instead of the contemporary word) the Hipsters are assumed to be and move to the newly gentrified areas and act just like the Hipsters do. Though the problem comes when a Republican has to explain to a Tea Partyer why he enjoys seeing cuts to medicare the same way a Trust Fund Hipster has to explain to his Hipster friends why he just walked out of a Burger King with two Whoppers and a Coke!

The 1% Republican obfuscates the fact his multi-billion dollar company gets more in handouts than any poor community.

"Welfare is bad. Look at all these welfare queens! Rich people are good, look at all these small businesses that employ people."

The 1% simultaneously dissociate themselves from the "handout" class (which they are) while associate themselves with small business owners who actually do good in communities (which they're not).

We have yet to define what a "hipster" even is.

No.

Hipsters have a few intelligent members among them.

Yeah. All those Yale and Harvard MBAs in the GOP are dullards.

The My Little Pony Killer: We have yet to define what a "hipster" even is.

Why is it that there is always someone who comes up with this argument? It's been known for a long time that Hipsters are people that either go into the depths of history, take from other subcultures, or rarely make up some new trend because they always want to be on the "forefront of being alternative". Now this push towards being alternative isn't for the good of mankind, the good of a group of people trying to find a commonality among each other (in a subculture or other group), or even for the good of themselves; but instead it's nihilism disguised as progressivism. They immediately dismiss that which has become popular in contemporary culture, even if they were the ones to create, promote, and/or advance it (for example: the Cronut) and they treat those who don't follow their ideas as untouchables.

Sure, but it's like a hammer. You can build a house, or bash in a skull.

Oh please. I've seen more people trying to vie for failed 19th century leftist political philosophies than anything Republican.

"Sure, Socialism is fine and all but I'm into Syndicalism. You've probably never heard of it."

In all fairness, given that the direct reference in that comic was "was Darwin wrong?" by Natural Geographic, you've gotta link a picture with the next page:
