Get Your War on II

Get Your War On 2 - David Rees Get Your War On ties with The Daily Show as my favorite experience from election season 2008. David Letterman, Tina Fey, and . . . well . . Barack Obama are really close seconds. This book was no disappointment, but I must admit I didn't get all of it. It generally covers the period 2002-2004, with a brief look at early GYWO from the '80s and some insightful commentary from 1861 on Confederate currency. Apparently, it is true (just as I suspected): David Rees is immortal. I peaced out of politics for a couple of those years, due to the general depressing state of politics or not being alive yet.

My first experience with Get Your War On was animated (as in talkies as opposed to comic strips - I'm not really sure how to make that distinction), and they really speak for themselves (pun intended), so I thought I would post them here. I'm not sure if it's possible to embed them, so I'm just going to post the links I know take you to my two favorites at this point. The language is . . . um . . . "not safe for work", as David Rees says on his website ( http://www.mnftiu.cc/ ).
