1952 TMan Comic Predicts Neocon Future?

I love graphics. I especially love vintage comics. But when they predict the future, I love them even more. This 1952 comic I found on BoingBoing (via cartoonist Jay Kinney) predicts the Bush/Cheney Iran policy. (Why do we bother adding Bush's name? We all know it's just Cheney's presidency.) It's a little chilling actually...The quote "Take it up with Washington and see how far you get!" echoes the attitude of Tony Snow and the rest of this administration. They are thumbing their noses at us (and the Senate Judiciary Committee) while they do whatever the hell they want. Including trying to get their mitts on a big chunk of the Iraq's oil. Oh and the act of throwing a pig at the Muslim while calling him a rag head echoes our abuse and torture tactics at Abu Ghraib.
