Who, you ask? One and a half scans from Cerebus #50.
Throughout the "High Society" arc of Cerebus the Aardvark, we're constantly shown narrative excerpts from a book called The Six Crises by Suenteus Po, which, published long after the fact, documents Cerebus' time as Prime Minister of the city-state of Iest. Po himself shows up in the late stages of the arc as one of Cerebus' aides. The running joke, both within the book and when Po appears in person, is that Po takes Cerebus' political statements at face value, believing him to be an eloquent, committed leader of the republican cause against theocracy. In fact, Cerebus is a crude and massively self-interested, and only doing all this in order to gain money and power for himself.
By story's end, Cerebus has lost it all, and flees the city solo, much as he had entered it, leaving Iest in the hands of the theocrats.
The very Marx Brothers-esque "High Society", which was a fairly cynical comedy about political manipulators, thus ends on a rather sobering note about how words like "liberty" really do matter.
It's a really incredible shame how badly Sim went off the rails in later years, but we'll always have the Sim of "High Society", "Church and State" (mainly Part I; Part II drags like all hell) and "Jaka's Story".
