I saw this picture on the front page yesterday, filed under Some Men Just Want to Watch the World Burn, but realized that the second panel was really familiar.
We have an article for this but I’ve been seeing it a lot since the 2012 primaries and elections. It’s always Ron Paul, with heavily saturated colors or a skull photoshopped to his face, with a post-apocalyptic background and an ominous quote. Since the page hasn’t been updated since July I was thinking it might be a good topic to discuss again. My main question would be why it stuck around more after this election – I can’t say I remember it much in the years leading up to it. I know it was a minor thing in 2008-2009, but it seems to have stuck around more this time.
