Not since Homer Simpson showed off his Starland Vocal Band tattoo have I seen such impetuous inking as this Howard Dean tattoo. C’mon, man: the guy doesn’t even have the nomination yet—and he may never get it—yet you’ll have that tattoo for life. Try explaining how Dean seized the anti-war in Iraq fervor and the internet to your grandkids: “What’s a Iraq?” “What’s a Internet?” they’ll ask from their robot overlords-issued hovering oxygen-chamber/multi-media jungle gym Orgone accumulators.
It reminds me of this old Norman Rockwell image, “Tattoo Artist (Only Skin Deep)”, that depicts a sailor getting his sweetheart’s name tattooed on his bicep just below the crossed-out names of several old sweethearts.
