Is This Tomorrow Under the Teabaggers?



  1. Neat cover, what was the original comic? It looks interesting enough to read.

    I’ll throw in the towel on the Sarah Palin bet at the end of October; both ends of it. Though I still think I’m good on the Romney end.

  2. Yeah, db, it looks less and less like she’ll run. Even the DC pundits are noticing she just seems to be playing a game to get publicity and they’re the last to know what’s going on.

    Is This Tomorrow was both a comic cover and an anti-Communism scare poster from 1947, artist and writer unknown. The legend in the box was “American under Communism!” and it was published by the ‘Catechetical Guild Educational Society,’ an uber-Catholic group. Here are two links to read the comic:

  3. Thanks for the link, I read the comic. I notice that the communists had to take out Harry Truman first. He wouldn’t have put up with that communist stuff; but Sam Rayburn as a fellow traveler? Nah.

    It was interesting because in the left part, you had a whit guy hitting the black guy & in the right, the black guy choking the white one. The comic really played down the race issue.

  4. db, Palin just took herself out of the running.

  5. Yep,

    I stopped off here on my way to admit defeat on Fishink, but here will do.

    You were right. I was wrong. Sarah Palin will not run for President; nor will she win 5 primaries/caucases.

    Now, for paying off: as an administrator to this site, you have access to my underlying e-mail. Send me an e-mail & I will make suggestions for paying off my debt.

  6. I’m so impressed with your integrity, db — you didn’t try to weasel, evade or qualify the bet — that I’m going to forget it. You don’t owe me a thing. What was the other bet — you have Romney for the nomination, I think? Let’s concentrate on that one.

  7. RS,

    Thank you, I don’t recall receiving a higher compliment.

    I might have lost the bet, but dinners with intelligent, creative people are well worth the price of picking up the tab. But if the mechanics won’t work, I’ll donate $100 to the Central Union Mission of a city you designate (and please provide phone number or at least address). Around here they run the homeless shelter & provide meals to the homeless. I figure $100 is two meals for us at $50 per.

  8. db, I’ll email you tomorrow about making a donation, but it’s really not necessary.
