about "The Best Comic Strip Ever!"

The characters in my strip, set in Africa's Western Rift Valley, are: the Foolish Pride of lions (Leon, the haughty and lethargic King of Beasts; his queen, Leona; and their cub Lionel, an unpromising heir to the throne); Secretary Bird, a liason between the Royal Court and the rest of the animals; cerebral, man-imitating Ape, a reader of the Substandard; peevish Rhinoceros; harmless but senseless Ostrich; Crocodile, resident of the much-frequented Watering Hole, and his dentist, Crocodile Bird; Honey Badger (alias Ratel), the "Meanest Animal in the World", and his one associate, Honeyguide; Mumbo the elephant, a descendant of Jumbo and a butt of jokes about his weight and the size of his ears and nose; Duncan the dung beetle; ill-favored and unwashed Warthog; the craven, henpecked male and shrewish female hyaenas, both of them foul-smelling and perpetually at war vs. the lions; the mistaken-identity-plagued zebras; slow and superannuated Tortoise; Oxpecker, a companion of large herbivores; Hugh the chamaeleon; and walled-up Mrs. Hornbill.

Uncommon Commentary #221: A Strongman and a Weak Claim

President Obombast and his administration (though repeating the mantra "Gaddafi must go") maintained that US intervention in the Libyan civil war was an "humanitarian" mission intended to protect civilians, not to bring about the fall of the Gaddafi regime, which anyway, had already taken place weeks before the strongman's demise.  Furthermore, Gaddafi, though no less repellent than when this object of Islamist hatred was an enemy of the USA, served as an ally of ours in the fight versus jihadists (just as the monster Stalin did in that against Hitler's Germany); see the final two paragraphs of The "Arab Spring" Spews Blood.  How, then, can anyone who hasn't been living on some other planet for the past decade characterize his capture and death as a US "foreign-policy victory?"
