The Line Between Madness And Genius

Each week I visit ComicList to jot down which titles are out so I know what to expect when I get in to see my local comic dealer shop. Browsing through the list a moment ago, I came across this little gem:

That's Steampunk Palin, a one-shot from Antarctic Press! The solicitation reads:

Energy catastrophe has struck worldwide! Massive oil spills, nuclear meltdowns and more leave us desperate for viable energy sources to rebuild global society and technology.
Inspired by a little tea party, Sarah Palin hits upon the answer: steam power! She begins the 'Steam Initiative', touting geothermal energy as the cure for what ails ya. The heads of Big Oil and Nuclear Power are less than happy with this trend, and they send their agents to do in the Rogue Republican. Luckily, she comes prepared with a set of steam-powered armor! (Standard equipment, don'cha know.)
This is either one of the craziest, most evil pieces of propaganda or a genius-level masterstroke in marketing . . . though they may be interchangeable come to think of it!
