I noticed recently the Daily Catbox-Liner And Semi-Covert Democrat, which is what we have in Indy instead of a newspaper,* had revamped their Editorial page in such wise as to mostly eliminate those pesky, 500-or-so-word "tl;dr" editorials and I'd briefly mourned the loss of such a cheap and easy source of snark.
This just shows my lack of faith in the professional committment and journalistical ability of America's Print Pundits; the low-hanging fruit has brought itself down even lower. Today, they've unveiled a new, multi-part feature occupying all of that page:
An editorhetorical comic strip! In color!
And a classic piece of leftie-worldview self-affirmation it is, too, at about the same reading-comprehension level as a Chick tract and slightly less entertaining.
So if you have been wondering as have I, in our dull and unenlightened way, just exactly what the paper's opinion of our mental horsepower might be, wonder no more!
I would'na given them the link but it's almost got to be seen to be believed.

* What's your town got instead of a newspaper? Somebody's got to keep those pulp mills running!
