Moonbat comicbook creators pretend they're educated in civics
How dare members of Congress write a letter to Iran's leadership telling them that any deal reached must be approved by them (the Senate, specifically).
Naturally, because the below are WRITERS of popular funnybooks, and have legions of followers on social media, this somehow "translates" into them "being smarter than you."
Our old pal Dan Slott asks the following:
It didn't have
to imagine. The GOP had to deal with Democrat members of Congress actually meeting in person
with foreign (enemy) leaders during Republican presidencies, remember?
Regarding the former, the Democrats actually passed the Boland Amendment which forbade US assistance to the Nicaraguan Contras in the early-mid 1980s. This amendment did a lot more to interfere with the president's foreign policy-making than a single letter ever did.
Next, the bloated Gail Simone weighs in (pun intended), mocking Senator Tom Cotton in the process:
At least, Gail, those leaves are healthy,
and not the five-cheeseburger meals of which you
Oh, and by the way? Sen. Cotton is a veteran.
The only Simone has served is herself -- a giant milkshake.
Gail Simone -- a "ton" 'o fun.

Didn't Ted Kennedy try to get the Soviets to undermine Reagan? Poor Dan Slott... One would think he would take five seconds to Google these sorts of things since his knowledge of U.S. history is lacking.
Gail Simone shouldn't be making cracks about veterans...and certainly not about what they eat. As your caption demonstrates, she's throwing stones in an incredibly large glass house.
I'm not a comics guy but aren't you giving them too much credit? You call them 'creators' but aren't they mostly bastardizing concepts that were created 30+ years ago?
Once again comic writers show why their lack of knowledge and history. Just imagine if they would put that time into writing they may actually write something good...but I doubt it.
It is amazing how rude they are to others but if you say something about them they cry to their twitter pack for help.
It's times like these I remember how Stan Lee was quite the liberal back in his day, but he was also unfailingly jolly and friendly, as well as able to take criticism and disagreement. Most comic writers these days are just bitter, hateful, and monstrously thin-skinned. Frankly, I wouldn't mind such childish behavior if we were getting quality stories, but folks like Slott and Gail (as well as pinheads like Marz and Waid) haven't done anything worth reading in at least a decade.
Also, based on seeing that picture, I have two questions. Is Gail Simone just Michael Moore in drag? And what is that thing she's holding in the picture? It looks like the love child of a Mogwai and a Cabbage Patch doll.
"Is Gail Simone just Michael Moore in drag?"
Is that Dan Slott on Gail's shoulder?
