Liberality for All!

Preview cover from Liberality

Technically not a webcomic, but they do have a five page preview up on the web right now, so I think that's close enough.

I don't care what your political views are, this looks like a great comic. I'm absolutely tickled by the concept: In the year 2021, liberals have completely taken over the U.S. government and handed over complete authority to the U.N. And as a result Ambassador Usama bin Laden's plan to nuke New York City is about to come to fruition. The only ones who can stop it are a crack team of former conservative radio talk show hosts turned superheroes, led by Sean Hannity, G. Gordon Liddy, and Oliver North.

Come on. You've gotta love that. I mean, even just the concept of Sean Hannity with a bionic arm continuing to transmit his radio show by hacking bandwidths using a military van is enough to get me to buy a copy, not to mention 75 year-old G. Gordon Liddy as a motorcycle riding, gun-toting vigilante (actually, he's 75 years old NOW, meaning that in the comic he'd be 91! Looking pretty good for a 91 year old there. I guess government sponsored health care isn't the answer after all!).

If you're a Democrat, you can buy the comic just to laugh at the sheer absurdity of it. If you're a Republican, you can... buy the comic just to laugh at the sheer absurdity of it. Let's not make a big deal out of this. This comic is pretty far off the deep end. I'm pretty sure it's not trying to make any sort of real political statement if it's got Sean Hannity dressed up like Snake Plissken. The whole thing is tongue in cheek, and it should be treated as such. Buy it, laugh at it, and be thankful that no one really thinks that way.

Well, maybe Michael Savage...
