Katie Britt can out-fundraise Mo Brooks, but she can’t out-crazy him

This is an opinion cartoon.

Who’s got the advantage in an Alabama GOP U.S. Senate election: Polite business sense or political nonsense? That’s a stupid question. Mo Brooks is the name-recognition front-runner in this election. He’s always in the news. For all the wrong reasons.

But newcomer Katie Britt has quickly raised the most money.

For the sake of sanity, Katie Britt, I hope you don’t fall into the trap of dumbing down or crazy-ing up to match batty Mo Brooks’ insurrection-inciting spittle energy. Stick to your business sense guns.

But for the sake of cartoonery, Katie Britt, you have my blessing to go bat guano y bat guano with Mo Brooks.

Either way, I’m here for the bat guano loco show.
