Supply Side Jesus

Supply Side Jesus, from Al Franken's book, image: cribbed from BoingBoing

[via BoingBoing] Al Franken's book includes a comic strip of Supply Side Jesus, which is now online at Buzzflash. It's pretty hilarious, but, in the grand SNL tradition, it peters out toward the end (and I don't mean St Peter, either).

I've heard Franken shilling for the book on the radio; sometimes, he's hilarious, sometimes, he's only nominally funny. He's certainly funnier than James Woods, but the left still needs some better humor to break out of its little pity party. Less O'Reilly idiot-bashing, more of the geniuses who gave John Ashcroft his own soundtrack.

Blah blah blah the left blah blah blah.

Try not sounding like a broken record if you want your blog taken seriously pal.

[Sometimes I think I'd rather be taken funnily, but all that really matters is what some anonymous fascist troll thinks of me. But enough about me. What do you think of me? -ed.]

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
