The Not-So-Wise Wisdom of Peanuts

I often tell my students that political science can be a dismally pessimistic field of study...war, poverty, injustice, genocide are but a few of the topics we consider.

And as today's Peanuts strip demonstrates, sometimes political science even makes it impossible for us to enjoy a simple comic strip. For as we all know, human nature has little to do in explaining international conflict. Poor old Charlie Brown.

Replace the words Charlie Brown with the words "Barak Obama."


Lionel Hutz: Uh oh. We've drawn Judge Snyder.

Marge: Is that bad?

Lionel Hutz: Well he's sorta had it in for me since I kinda ran over his dog.

Marge: You did?

Lionel Hutz: Well, replace the word 'kinda' with the word 'repeatedly' and the word 'dog' with 'son'.
