Traditional American Values

From State of Protest:

And in case you missed the dazzling speech from Carrie Prejean which inspired this cartoon, really take the 15 minutes and marvel at how little self-awareness and much self-righteousness a single human being can actually have.

    Hmm, doesn’t quite fit here, does it?

    I use highslide for presentation, but I guess you can still get the gist, despite the overlay, eh?

    And thanks!

    Well, I could have shrunk it down as much as you did but then the text would be unreadable. I had to squint when I read it on your site and then figured out I could enlarge it. So, when I brought it over here I split the difference. For the sake of a readable quote I made it too big that it would extend out of the post and into the side column but small enough that it wouldn’t stretch the page or have the cartoon’s text overlay with my links on the right hand column.

    And thanks for being cool with my republishing it here!

    Try this. Made it just for you. :)

    (and I’ll add it as an option on my site)

    And thanks for credit linking.

    Perfect! Thanks!

    And no problem, I also wanted to grab the scientology cartoon for another day but didn’t know if you’d mind me using so many of your cartoons in a row. Let me know any policies you have. I always link back of course (and I’d just throw up a link that directed people but most readers don’t like clicking links).

    You can use as many as you like, as long as you link back. Your format above is fine. Thanks for the interest. Let me know if you have any special requests. :)
