Kate Upton explains the sequester to Ryan Gosling (in comic book form)


Turns out that, despite all of the discussion about looming sequestration, no one in America actually has any idea what the hell is going on. A recent Washington Post-Pew Poll suggests that only 25-percent of people are following the issue "very closely" and that less than one in five people say they understand the sequester's potential effects "very well."

Enter: Gawker. The Gawker folks decided that the best way to FINALLY get through to people about the debate over sequestration was to have America's darling and SI Swimsuit cover girl, Kate Upton, break it down for national treasure, face-stomping badass, and undeniable heartthrob, Ryan Gosling, in a comic strip.

The results? Ryan Gosling, Kate Upton, fancy lettering, thought bubbles, and frank discussion about the GDP, economic growth, government spending, and the issues littering the chasm between liberals and conservatives concerning the looming sequester. What more could we ask for? [Gawker]
