skippy looks at books

Example

hustlers and the idiot swarm by reverend manny:
“hustlers and the idiot swarm: a working class rant for a doomed civilization,” is a short, conversational history of just how our national political discourse got so dumb, who invested in that dumbification and who profited from it. more importantly, it examines how self-defeating an emotive, reactive political discourse is to the very voting populace whose needs are supposed to be prioritized by their democratically elected government.

lol@ Rush Limbaugh comment... ahhahaha... it's funny, when the artist was getting the sketching into its full form we referred to the piece as "the marching Idiots"... every time I hear that phrase though I think of that song from Dumbo "pink elephants on parade" haha
