Who knew that taking benign clip art of office toadies and filling their word balloons with blisteringly profane political commentary would propel you to the upper echelons of contemporary American satire? David Rees, apparently. His comic strip, "Get Your War On," is carried by Rolling Stone and alternative newspapers across the country (including, FYI, lawrence.com at one point) and has recently been adapted into an animated series appearing online at The Huffington Post and 23/6 News. "Get Your War On," filthy and Bush-bashing as it is, has exhibited in museums and been praised by the New York Times as a "glorious excoriation of our post-9/11 loony bin." To celebrate the release of "Get Your War On: The Definitive Account of the War on Terror, 2001-2008," David Rees graciously joined us to talk shit on a bunch of things.
