OMG–Someone had sex with Dave Petraeus?

Dave Petraeus goes viral--oppan gubmint style, sexy lady gubmint style

Gangnam style a la Pentagon--Gubmint Style

The latest titillation taking our minds off of real news is, of course, the fact that Gangnam Style has just beat out one of Justin Bieber’s songs for the top download off of YouTube. Oh, that isn’t the story? Oh, the Pentagon scandal!

The latest titillation that’s taking our minds off of real news is, of course, the fact that someone actually had sex with a general. And didn’t have to by virtue of marriage. That’s right, Dave Petraeus, our star commander from Iraq by virtue of the fact that he didn’t suck as bad as the others (the surge worked, right?) and present, until recently when he handed in his resignation to spend more time with his family, head of the CIA, had an extramarital affair. With a groupie! His biographer, Paula Broadwell. Now that’s one welluva broad, if you ask me.

Now the details confuse me, but somehow, this was all discovered because Jill Kelley, who was also involved somehow with the General, got harassing emails from someone (the aforementioned Paula Broadwell) and asked the FBI to discover who. (Dear FBI–can you find out about all these broads who keep e-mailing me about the size of my equipment and how I can make it bigger? Must be nice to be able to call up your friendly agent and get results.) She, I think, was also engaged in exchanging “flirtatious” emails with General John Allen (who bears an unfortunate resemblance to Elmer Fudd). Hey, we got four–bridge anyone?

Well, all I can say is that this gives new definition to the concept of “surge.” Oppan Oppan Gubmint Style! Now that’s what I call PSY-ops!

Triumph of the 47%

Mitt Romney discovers that he is the turkey.

"Nothing is classier than good sportsmanship, Mitt."--The 47%


Well, a lot has happened in the last two weeks. We had an election. It did not turn out to be the squeaker that all the pundits and newsies hoped it would be. It did not turn out to be the rout that FoxNews, Newsmax, and the Romney campaign thought it would be.

Instead, it turned out to be a decisive victory for the President and for the 47% that the Baseball Glove so derided. Quite frankly, I still have no idea how so many people are actually fooled by GOP empty promises and failed policies, but Obama only got 52% of the vote. But I ain’t kicking.

Mittford still is. Showing sportsmanship, good sense, and a sense of fair play, he’s been mouthing off about how Obama won because of “gifts” he gave to poor people, students, old farts, immigrants–you know, all those people who just “don’t count”. Class act, Willard! President Obama is going to pardon a turkey this week. But it’s YOU who really needs it.

And last weekend was AnimeUSA. I had a great time in Artists Alley, meeting all the fans and cosplayers. The two panels I gave on Planning Your Manga and Neo-Traditional Inking went splendidly–although I seem to have forgotten my collection of pens and brush pens, so if anyone came across them, please contact me at gregoriusu01 AT gmail.com. I’ll be highly grateful. I’d like to give shoutouts to all the staff at AUSA, my fellow artists and all the cosplayers I photographed (and some I didn’t) whose pictures I’ve uploaded to my flickr account, far too many to mention (my photo, cosplaying as a well-fed but sleek seal is here). But I would like to give one to Kevin and Peter of A KAWAII BOUTIQUE, who had a great weekend doing their first Artists Alley–Kevin is a friend from DeviantArt and helped me last year at Katsucon to learn the ropes and also give me a break to get to the formal ball at that convention and this one. THX guys, glad I could help you get started on a great venture.

Now, Obama, it’s time to have your feet held to the fire. BWAHAHA!

Vote Early, Vote Often, but VOTE!

Legislature Approved Voter Fraud

Need I say WHICH legislatures?


It’s going to be a tougher election than it should be. Tough voter ID laws have been enacted in far too many states specifically designed to make it tough for “brown” people, poor people and college students to vote. Two important states, Ohio and Florida, have precipitously cut back their early voting hours. And the United States is still filled with idiots who think Barack Obama is an atheist Muslim born in Kenya.

Mitt Romney SHOULD lose. After all, his entire plan for the country is to bankrupt it and all citizens with incomes less than a million a year and then sell it off to China. That’s his M.O. You’d think people would have caught on to it. Certainly not the Fox News-watching crowd–you know, the ones who didn’t know how big Hurricane Sandy had gotten and when they DID hear, thought: “Good–it’s time for them America-hating New Yorkers to suffer like the rest of us.”

Chris Christie got thrown under the bus for actually deigning to appear with President Obama as they toured the devastation in New Jersey. The GOP better hope the bus doesn’t overturn–Christie is a big bump in the road.

So on Tuesday, as one commentator said, America gets the choice of turning back the clock–by fifty years. Let’s hope that we as a nation are not THAT INSANE. You liberals thinking you won’t vote because you are mad at Obama for not closing Gitmo, not getting universal health and waging war by remote control–think of the alternative. Now go out and vote.

THIS WEEK, yours truly will be in the Artists Alley at ANIMEUSA in Washington DC. Anyone who is an animefan and is going to the con, please drop by my table! I’ll also be giving panels on inking your comics and how to plan your manga. And, in connection with this, I inaugurate my new Facebook Fanpage. LIKE it and get news about my other artworks as they are produced and get progress reports on my graphic novel HANAKO-SAN, now being storyboarded.

Have a good week and VOTE. See you soon.

Please to remember the 5th of November, gunpowder treason and plot,
I see no reason why gunpowder treason ever should be forgot…

A penny for the old Guy!
