Dance, Monkey: Baron Vaughn

We put a comic on the hot seat. This week's victim...
By SARA FAITH ALTERMAN  |  November 11, 2008


Barack Obama! President-Elect! We've been waiting for this forever! So now what?
Now we wait patiently to see how creative people get in blaming him for things that are impossible to fix in a day. We're not far off from a time when discontented McCain supporters will say things like, "Argh! I stubbed my toe! Damn you, Obama, and your move-around-my-furniture-while-I'm-sleeping ways!"

Per California voters' decision on Election Day, gay people don't deserve rights (Prop. 8), but chickens do (Prop. 2). Thoughts?
Interesting priorities, California! It's disturbing to know that these bigots would have to be cannibals to worry about the rights of humans. Personally, I believe we should rally together, go to Cali, and punch the faces of people in the counties that voted for that Prop.

I'm thinking of a number between one and ten. What is it, and what does it describe?
You're thinking of the number 2.4835, because this is your favorite combination of numbers, but you added the decimal so you'd stay true to the parameters you set. Good job, you sneaky jellyfish, you!

Who would you select as members of President Obama's cabinet?
Donald Rumsfeld, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, John Ashcroft, Condoleezza Rice. . . . Wait — was this question not about abandoning people on a burning boat?
