They're Playing Politics!



As it was when this comic was published in 1948, things remain the same today in 2012.   Bring up The War on Women, or the War on Marriage, or the War on Facts, or, really, any war in 2012 that doesn't involve foreign powers and automatic weapons, and you've got heated political rhetoric designed to influence voters for the next election.  Just look at the accusations of flip-flopping going on: this isn't about whether or not one side or the other changes their statements to pander to the people listening at the time, but rather it's so that one side catches the other side playing politics.  Sixty-four years of awareness about everyone's selfish political games hasn't improved the process any.
