And if you've always wanted to get the iPhone app that features my cartoons, now you can get the updated version right here:

Mr. Dan! Mr. Dan!  . . . Mr. Dan?


Aaaaigh! Where's Mr. Dan?  And, and, are you?  Are you?

I'm Dogboy, Dogboy.  And we gotta' talk.

Mmm, about what?

About your Obama guy.

My Obama?

He won the election, right?

Yep!  He sure did!

So why is he nominating these Republican types, Dogboy?

Well, Dogboy, it's . . . a smart move politically, I guess.

Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense?

He's a maverick!

First Obama keeps Bush's secretary of defense, now another Republican to run the Pentagon?

I guess they're good at war stuff, plus, Chuck Hagel's peaceful.

. . . And supported the Iraq war resolution.

Yeah, but he didn't want to!

And what about John Brennan to head the CIA?

Oh, he's not the controversial one, don't worry.

. . . Except in two-thousand-eight when he dropped out of the running, right?

Yeah . . . but that's because he was involved in torture and rendition stuff under Bush.

. . . And don't forget his love of spying on Americans!

Yeah, but things were different then!

Well, now Congress reauthorizes domestic spying and no one notices!

Remember, Dogboy, Obama says:  Don't look backwards, look forward!

Forward to the next drone strike?

Well, kinda . . .

Forward to the next rendition flight?

Um, I guess . . .

Oh!  Forward to the next signature strike where we kinda pretty much know the bad guys are there and no civilians are ever ever killed?

Umm . . . I wish Mr. Dan was back from the fiscal cliff.

Mr. Dan:  [falling, splat]  Aaaaaiiigh!

Dogboy:  Ooooh!  Mr. Dan!  Thank you!  Thank you!

Mr. Dan:  groannnn . . .

Dogboy:  That Dogboy asked too many questions.

Mr. Dan:  Dogboyssss . . . .

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
