Okay stop me if you've heard this one about the local hot head who goes around assailing old ladies dressed up for election night... no? Well the News Tribune political buzz blog paints a disturbing mental image.  Even the New Takhoman felt compelled to record the event.  Of course through the widely differing accounts of the witnesses, The Tacomic takes creative license AND THUS a true hero emerges: Mr Timothy Farrell.

hey kevin, how hard would it be to get the google analytics code from our blogs to show up on our comics pages? Or would it be better to set up a new google analytics number?

not having stats on these is killing me.

Nice caRRtoon. Unbelievable behavior but I followed your link to the trib story and must say, I think you got all the details right.

@RR: I forced your code in there so let me know if it works. If it does, I'll add a field to the comic strip settings so anyone can add their analytics code. Enjoy!

That whole story makes my head explode. At least we have Tim Ferrell.

Ya know, that cartoon is kind of how I read the TNT's emphasis of the story.

The neutral 133 character is apt.

That poor old woman seems to be suffering from a severe case of muppet mouth

Thanks guys. I like reading your comments.

I had fun drawing the exit133 character, the muppet mouth and the insane, unbridled rage of mr. miller.

cartoons up next:
- Mike/Joe Lonergan succession
- The Victory of Marty Campbell and his Beard

possible:
- council appointments or something

The Victory of Marty Campbell and his Beard

Here's an idea:

Hmmm I always thought of Marty as a little more Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel

radio talk show host Frank Blair from my facebook:

The Friday before the election, I got a note with Mr Miller's name, wanting me to call him. After the show I talked to him, and he said that he just got done listening to the Merritt interview, and he wanted to know why all the commercials were missing. He wanted to know who the advertisers were that week and if any had supported or endorsed Jim.... Read MoreTHEN he wanted to know if Merritt was running ads that week because it sounded like a Merritt info-mercial. No shit.
I told him that the commercials are removed from ALL podcasts AND archived shows, it's industry standard. As for the interview, I reminded him that we had also interviewed Marilyn. I made the same offer to BOTH candidates for ads on our show AND KLAY, neither camp took us up on the offer, so NEITHER side was advertising on KLAY. I assured him that we do NOT sell interviews, to ANYONE! EVER!!!
I told him that I didn't want anyone running around town behind my back saying that I OR our show is bias, or willing to sell out. How the HELL we got dragged into this bullshit is beyond me. What he thinks he, OR his candidate has to gain by attacking ME or our show is beyond me. It sounded like a desperate act by a little man. It was not smart, and frankly makes me suspect of the team Marilyn has.

RR, I've got an idea for your next Tacomic: 

SOTA (School of the Arts) Special Alternative Curriculuum

Campaign Dirty Tricks 101Just Mix in karen Smitherman, Anders Ibsen, and this joker named Budinick and some delinquents calling each other the N word and you've got a wonderful new Tacomic

by NineInchNachos on 10/31/2011 @ 10:06am
that story is so funny.   Anyone can be a Budinick !  public records people use them!! 

by NineInchNachos on 8/1/2012 @ 11:51pm
so how about that 'tacomanians for integrity in government' PAC ?  Have they been producing some awesome mailers  or what?
