    Don’t worry, Calvin. By the time you’re old enough to run for President, no one will pay any attention to editorials.

    Would be cool if there would be an epilogue, 31 years later, where Calvin would become president

    You lose yuuuge credibility points when you cite an article that relies on bannon from breitbart as a credible source or calls that discredited hit job “Clinton Cash” book, “meticulously documented.”

    Sorry, but FAIL! Even if that one were remotely true and the one on Snopes we know is, neither one will ever come close to what the Ruskies did to install Trump.

    Oh, and as for the one on Snopes, notice that while Obama was expressing his openness to negotiate with Putin, he obviously did not. Could it possibly be because Putin then went about and did things that were counterproductive and Obama wasn’t the weak leader the republi-CONs keep blathering on about? Could the moral of the story be that Obama was willing to negotiate but when Putin didn’t act in good faith Obama stood up to him? Nah, according to the CON-man CONservatives Obama is weak, ineffective and a dictator.

    Actually, the first Doonesbury strips on Trump would appear just a few years after this strip ran.

    Considering Calvin’s grades, I’m surprised he can understand an answer spelled out for him.

    “Would be cool if there would be an epilogue, 31 years later, where Calvin would become president”

    Perseus,I too was calculating. Our president-elect is 70 – 31 years later; nah, too old. But indeed a 37 year old could run, as I remember..

    Why, Why, Why?


    Because “Oreo” can be used as a derogatory word meaning someone who is black on the outside, but white on the inside.


    Oh, oh, oh, I didn’t know that!

    When I was a little kid, I used to believe that anyone could become president. Now I’m sure of it.

    Instead of Trump why couldn’t we have voted for Hobbes ?

    This is seriously meta. Ouija boards work through the power of suggestion and mob (pack) mentality.

    So the board gave an answer. It was controlled by Calvin and Hobbes. Hobbes is an imaginary playmate personified out of a stuffed tiger by Calvin. So really, only Calvin is controlling the results. But Calvin is a character created by Bill Watterson, so even he isn’t responsible for the outcome. And if you believe Elon Musk (or any earlier philosophers, such as Plato, author of “The Allegory of the Cave”), we are all living in an elaborate simulation, so maybe even Bill isn’t responsible for the Ouija board’s reply.
