Does that mean it's actually

I have nothing against discussing politics, but if that's what you want to do, then discuss them - don't pretend you're writing a comic strip and then use one of the characters as your mouthpiece.

yeah, but it's still funny.

yes, it's her opinion, but within that framework, the jokes are funny. if it's not your cup of tea, move along...

Funny thing about a free web-based comic...

It would appear to be precisely the place to have the main character be the mouthpiece of the artist. Wouldn't it?
