[quote]First of all, that whole line about the issues is bullshit. It’s all a dog and pony show. And the reason behind that is because people who work at Fox News gotta eat. People who work at MSNBC gotta eat. People who write for the newspapers and bloggers gotta eat. They’re all part of the same machine. If this was just an election run on the issues, then the attention would go down, and people would stop getting paid.

So politicians can keep saying “This is the year we’re going to run a clean campaign” or “This is the year where we’re not going to call people names” or “We’re not going to use people who are marginalized as props for our campaign.” But that’s never going to happen. That’s why the system is the way it is right now.

With the way the campaign is going now – not just with Trump but with the Hilary Clinton e-mails or Bernie Sanders or whoever – we’re over a year out, and it’s already crazy. And it’s not going to get less crazy or weird the closer we get to election day. So to a certain degree, I do feel justified in making “Citizen Jack.” I feel lionized. It certainly would have been frustrating for me if the politicians had done what they promised and delivered a back to basics campaign without any sensationalism whatsoever. We would have been caught with our pants down.[/quote]

[size=150]INTERVIEW DE PATTERSON ET HUMPHRIES[/size]

La partie dessinée m’a l’air pas mal du tout, & le *pitch * n’est pas dépourvu d’une certaine originalité.

[quote]We don’t use the words Democrat or Republican in Citizen Jack. We are nonpartisan in our satire. We don’t address any real life issues. This is about scandals, king making, backroom deals, and corruption.

I am into politics, if by “into” you mean enraged by, afraid of, and disgusted by politics. And I am also “into” politics if you mean inspired by, awed by, and motivated into action. Citizen Jack is the action I decided to take after being enraged, inspired, afraid, disgusted by, and in awe of what politics has become in America.

I grew up in Minnesota, and one of my first political memories was watching the returns for the 1984 election – Reagan’s landslide against Mondale. They had the map of the U.S., and the whole thing was red, for Reagan. Only Minnesota was blue, and the tiny square of Washington D.C. Minnesota, all alone in a sea of blood red. That’s when I understood that politics could be a farce.

How is Donald Trump doing what he’s doing? That is the kind of question that drives Citizen Jack. Trump could be the next president, or he could flame out next week. Either way. Citizen Jack is bigger than Trump.[/quote]
