Wuss N Boots


After showing up in sparkling clean white knee-high rubber boots, fascist Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been compared to Nancy Sinatra, Buddy Pine, Green M&M, the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, but perhaps worst of, Michael Dukakis.

Many political historians have cited the tank photo-op for where it all went wrong for Michael Dukakis’ 1988 presidential campaign. It also hurt that Dukakis just sat back and didn’t respond to attack ads, but yeah…that tank thing is definitely a contributing factor.

If you’re running for office and there’s something you don’t belong in, then don’t crawl inside of it. That goes for tanks, porn stars, and rubber boots. How goofy did Michael Dukakis look wearing an army helmet while riding in a tank? The answer is: Almost as goofy as Ron DeSantis looked in those white rubber boots.

If those boots were actually muddy or had some appearance as if they were necessary, and not just for a photo-op, then maybe DeSantis could have gotten away with it. But he didn’t. He looked ridiculous and now, they’re going to be in every cartoon I draw on Ron DeSantis going forward. You did it to yourself, you goon.

How many immigrants from Texas is DeSantis gonna have to import to Martha’s Vineyard now just to restore the street cred lost to the boots?

What I wonder the most is why was he allowed outside in those boots? I mean, does anyone on his staff like him? Surely, he’s hired some Nazis on his staff and they would like him…right? I mean, like him enough to say, “Hey, maybe don’t Nancy Sinatra this photo-op today, mein governor.”

It reminds me of what Wanda Sykes said about Donald Trump boarding Air Force One with toilet paper on his shoe. She said, “‘They don’t like him.’ Everyone around him who works with him, they cannot stand him. They have no respect for this man. I mean, you would stop a stranger to get toilet paper off their shoe. I’ve almost missed a flight because I’m at my gate and I see someone walking by with toilet paper (on their shoe), and I’m like ‘I can’t let that happen’ and I run down and get the toilet paper off.”

Basically, nobody on Ron DeSantis’ staff like him. If someone did, that person would have told him how ridiculous the boots look. But it makes sense that no one likes him. I mean, have you seen and heard him talk?

There are bigger issues that should keep Ron DeSantis out of the White House, but if it’s the white boots that keep him from walking to Washington, I’ll take it.

Creative note: I started this cartoon in the Pentagon Hotel (kind of a dive) and finished it at Ronald Reagan Washington National airport. I posted it on social media while at Chicago Midway. I wrote this blog in Columbus, Ohio. I’m here.

  2. But, Clay, DuhSantis is showing his people how lily white he is in his clean white boots that never walked anywhere that might soil them with black dirt! He is a racist from the word go, and those boots symbolize just how racist he really is. A normal person when walking through mud and hurricane-caused destruction would opt for dark-coloured, even black boots. But DuhSantis will have none of that. He is afraid go get his feet and shoes dirty because he is better than everyone else, and the shiny clean white boots tell the world what he thinks of himself. The good guy in the white hat… I mean, white boots. He is a fraud!

      1. I doubt Floridians have such a saying, lol. They don’t have to deal with snow very often. But DuhSantis is pulling a snow job in his white boots. His spirit is is sp dirty he cannot hide it by wearing white.

  3. considering i learned it while growing up in the south east, i’m sure Floridians have heard of it. (don’t blame me for spending half my life there, my dad was stationed there while in the Army.

  4. I saw a photo (perhaps doctored??) of Desantis in his white boots standing next to President Biden, and Biden had on the same thing. I hope that was a doctored image.

  5. After the lawn is groomed today, I’m setting out my CHARLIE CRIST FOR GOVERNOR (yes, I know he is a ‘reformed’ rethuglican, but still . . . he ain’t DeathSantis) and VAL DEMINGS FOR SENATOR (against No-Show Rubio) yard signs. I will be so HAPPY to do that; let’s see how long they stay there, as I live in a rethuglican neighborhood.

    I have to admit, tho, that my BIDEN/HARRIS signs stayed up and unmolested until I took them down after President (!) Biden took his oath on 21 January, so maybe there’s hope yet for this neighborhood.

    As Judy Tenuta (RIP) used to say: “It could happen!”
