Flugennock's Latest'n'Greatest: "Auditioning for QAnon"

From DC's anarchist cartoonist Mike Flugennock -

"Auditioning for QAnon"

This time last year, it was Tom Cotton, Steve Bannon and those 
doorknobs at the Epoch Fail — uh, sorry, Epoch Times — pushing the 
100% evidence-free "Wuhan Lab Leak" conspiracy batshittery, and the 
Washington Post — along with anyone else with two synapses to rub 
together — were laughing that shit right outta the room.

So, this past week, it was with more than a little begrudging awe that 
I watched the Democratic Party, the Washington Post, CNN, Wall Street 
Journal and friends slam on the brakes, jerk the wheel around, kick in 
the afterburners and execute a full 180° Emergency Bat-Turn on the 
Wuhan Lab Leak zaniness. China's the new Enemy Of The Month, and 
Gropin' Joe needs some dirt on China, so they're dragging Steve 
Bannon's dirty hot mess out of the dumpster.
