Very rarely are political comics coming from a conservative stance and this 72-page black-and-white satirical stance on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one that will cause controversy for fans of the medium and AOC herself.
#DancingToTheWhiteHouse, follows the secret organization M.A.D.S. (Make America Democratic Socialist) who persuade Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez (“you don’t have to listen to that Nancy Pelosi anymore”) that she’s the only person who can prevent Donald Trump’s re-election, destroy capitalism, and stop the extinction of the human race.
Treading water via campaign promises such as ending racism with high speed rail lines and stopping global warming by abolishing ICE, along with the counsel of the Socialist Chorus Democracy huh yeah/what is it good for/ab-so-lute-ly nothing; Alexandria-mania, with the campaign slogan Socialism. Don’t Worry. It’s Not Our Money, sweeps the country and AOC becomes the front-runner for the Democratic nomination.
“Liberal themed satire is commonly found on Saturday Night Live and late night talk shows as well as MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times, etc., but there’s a dearth of satire from the conservative perspective. Maybe because people threaten to beat us up and bar us from college campuses. Conservative humorists are the new underground counter-culture, reflected in this guerrilla style of storytelling from myself and artist Mark Karlson. In these crazy times, we all need to laugh more, at others and especially ourselves,” said writer Gary Morgenstein.
From AOC dance studios and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s upcoming Broadway musical with Jake Gyllenhaal as Riley Roberts, to the Congresswoman guest hosting for Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel during Put The Free Back In Freedom Week, the era of the Green New Deal seems inevitable.
But not so fast. The Evil Witch hatches a plan to thwart AOC – setting the stage for her own daughter’s candidacy.
Morgenstein has published five traditional novels including the critically acclaimed A Mound Over Hell, set in 2098 following America’s defeat by Islam in World War Three as baseball begins its final season ever. https://www.bhcpress.com/Books_Morgenstein_A_Mound_Over_Hell.html.
