I know this Non Sequitur strip is supposed to be about television “pundits” like Glenn Beck…
… but all I see is a preacher.
I see a very particular street preacher who used to set up shop on Washington & State Street in Chicago. Heh.
I <3 you, Wiley. Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo
Hemant’s comment reminds me of how Jerry Falwell saw Teh Gay Agenda everywhere, including the Teletubbies. When you’ve got something on the brain, you see it everywhere.
Well, you know what they say: If all you have is a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail.
Big Media Business + Crackpot street preacher= Authoritaaa $$$hit.
I know March 13th’s non-sequitur comic is supposed to be about humor but all I see is sexism.
Wiley is on and off my shit-list for comics like this. He’s funny, but his attitudes towards women…
His sentiments seem echoed by his readers. The comments section is full of things like:

Is there such a thing as girl logic?
Sorry, a little off topic. Just had to get that off my chest.
Just one of the artefacts of our culture, Matt.
XKCD explains why. http://xkcd.com/385/
@Matt: I felt the same way. Too bad these comments don’t have a thumbs up or [ Like ] button.
@Mike in FL: The guy outside Old Navy?
The fact that he uses a mini-P.A. makes him so much worse. At least we have the “bucket boys” to drown him out a bit.
@Matt: My wife discovered Wiley and introduced the strips to me. She bought the calender for her desk and looks forward to his new strips.
The Non Sequitur strip is a favorite in our household.
My wife found the comic I linked to offensive, as did I. Sometimes I find him funny, sometimes not. I like that you subtly imply that since a woman likes him, that the comic can’t be sexist. If this isn’t what you are saying, why bring up your wife?
