The Beast is Dead

"Well, Near as damnit.

He has been removed from power. Which, for such as him, is much the same thing as being dead. He's been a politician since he was a fetus, an election fiend from birth, spending his entire life in popularity contests to attempt to win the power to... do what? Be elected some more, in bigger and better elections?

His entire reason for being was to win. To be the Boss. And now he's lost. And he can't be President again. no bigger prize. We can't help but stop looking at him now.

I feel uncommon pity for him. So I have sent him, care of his feedsite's address, a loaded handgun. I have marked it with the words USE THIS ON YOURSELF. I urge you to do the same."

Mwah, I need to read Transmetropolitan! I even had my hands on some of the issues, but the damn flu crossed my plans to read it. But I will do so XD

I read it a little bit when I was younger, but never got the chance to actually SIT DOWN and read whole issues.
I got the torrent for ALL of them from here:

Ah, thank you sooo much, but torrent is a bad issue here ;_; But I'll get them anyway, I think. Even if just borrowing; I think i know somebody who should have them!

Ohhh, I forgot torrent isn't cool everywhere... well, it's probably not cool here, either, but it's not much of an issue.

the sacred words of Spider Jerusalem, we could probably re-read transmetropolitan in the year 2234 and everything would still apply perfectly.
