Peter David on Ted Stevens’ Hulk Necktie
This is pretty funny stuff. Sen. Ted Stevens, the Alaska Republican who’s being investigated for lots of financial improprieties, was photographed by Doug Mills of the New York Times wearing a Hulk tie (see at right).
Over at his blog, former Hulk writer Peter David has this to say:
The embattled senator has been depicted wearing a Hulk necktie based on the cover of Hulk #401, written by yours truly. Apparently it’s his favorite tie when he’s in trouble. I’m starting to get an inkling of how Rowena felt upon learning that her art was a favorite of Saddam Hussein. In the words of Groucho, it’s a club that you really would rather not be a part of since it would have you as a member.
The comments are pretty funny, including this gem:
He likes the theme because he’s often quoted saying, "Don’t make me Ted Stevens. You wouldn’t like me when I’m Ted Stevens."
