Episode 172: Mr. Allen Goes to Washington

Ep 172 Dolby

What WOULD the founding fathers have thought of modern America?

I think it's safe to say that Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Thomas Paine would all be extremely proud of the nation we are holding together. Liberties have been extended further than any of them would have imagined possible. Religion and state haven't always kept separate, but things are getting better in a glacial sort of way. Science and free speech prosper. We're still not British.

Pretty clear though that John Adams would have despised us with a cold fury - probably Hamilton too. But they were sort of jerks anyway, so I'll probably still sleep tonight all the same.

- Count Dolby von Luckner

Ep 172 Geoff

I'm only 95% certain, but it looks to me like Dick Cheney is making an uncredited guest appearance in panel 3.

As my Uncle always says, "Dick Cheney before he dicks you."

Ha ha! I'm just kidding. It's far too late for that.
