And just in time for Christmas comes a collected volume of Get Your War On (Soft Skull, 256 pp., $15.95), David Rees's potty-mouthed clip-art comic, which simultaneously nails the nation's anger at its nihilistic enemies and its frustration with incompetent leadership. A December 12, 2001, panel reads: "Will you fucking hurry up and kill Osama bin Laden for fuck's sake? Jesus Fucking Christ, how can I put this—YOU'VE BEEN BOMBING FOR TWO FUCKING MONTHS! WHAT THE FUCK SIZE BOMBS DO YOU NEED?"
Completely, perfectly blunt, indeed.
