Superman Is a Librul!?!?

He was in 1952, anyway. By way of Oliver Willis, from Glenn Hauman:

It goes without saying that Superman is an illegal immigrant, which, no doubt, is why he's spewing all this liberal crap.

So asks Oliver Willis about the Republican base: As I've noted before, I don't have a really strong position on immigration reform. As the child of immigrants who came here the legit way, I'm troubled by giving a pass of any sort to people who "cut" in line, but I also know it's kind of dumb to…

Superman is even more liberal when you compare him to Batman. Think about it. Newspaper reporter Clark Kent (damn liberal media!) vs wealthy industrialist Bruce Wayne (a self made man! except for the inheritance part -- down with the death tax!). Over the top boy-scout rescuer of damsels in distress who gets his power from yellow sunlight vs vigilante with "anything goes that doesn't kill" attitude towards crime prevention who works in the shadows of night. It's amazing they were able to stand one another in Justice League.
