Real Americans... by ErinPtah Real Americans... by ErinPtah
After Monday's very angry TDS, Stephen makes the mistake that sets Jon off.

The pacing of this is shot, but it was cathartic to draw.

See, here's the thing: All the details here are all factual, though the real Jon would never lash out with them like this. The man got a USO award for the stuff he does with wounded soldiers, and he never so much as talks about it, even when his support of the troops is disparaged on the grounds of his being a liberal. So, uh, metaphorically roughing someone up on his behalf? Kinda felt good.

Yeah, this is not really IC for Jon at all, but as you say, extremely cathartic. I like the way you balanced it by keeping them chibi throughout, but giving them powerful expressions (especially love Jon's face change in the two textless panels)

Wait, that sounded stupid. OBVIOUSLY I know Jon never pinned Stephen down and completely lost it; I meant, 'which very angry TDS are you writing about, the one on some random Monday?"

Well, this was posted October 22, so probably October 20.

*checks thedailyshow.com*

Aha! Here's the clip: [link]=pfriend-or-pfoe

The show comes back to the comment a few times, including a later segment in which Jason Jones profiles both "real America" and "fake America" - including a comment on how lousy the big-city "fake Americans" are, played over a clip of firefighters on 9/11. Point made loud and clear.

Ooh, which TDS is this?? Seeing Jon angry is always fun. He should take out his claws more often. <3
