Those damned sniffing dogs

What's Mallard raving about today?

Democrats, sniffing dogs.

A couple of things raise this particular panel above an ordinary "Democrats=bad" effort. Such as the stilted use of the word "agenda" to separate the two bits of text; I'm not sure any reporter since the 1940's has used that type of lead-in. Or the policeman with strange raccoon eyes. Or the rather suspicious-looking dog glancing sideways at the reader. Or the dog with bow-legged posture. Or the use of the term "sniffing dog" which is missing a hyphenate to modify sniffing (such as "bomb-sniffing") so the dogs are something other than ordinary butt-sniffing, genital-licking dogs.

But the real gem is the rather blatant comparison of Democrats to terrorists who have left a bomb in the capitol building.

I think that they're supposed to be "agenda-sniffing dogs," meaning dogs that sniff out agenda, which are necessary because no one knows what the Democrats will do. Supposedly.

Of course, I suspect that if you asked Mallard "have you read their platform," he'd likely answer "no." So he's full of crap. Plus, he's a very, VERY lazy reporter if he can't do this research. I'd bump him down to obits, except that I wouldn't want to see what kind of tasteless remarks he'd make on THAT beat!

Yeah, it's "agenda-sniffing," not "agenda: sniffing...".

I think the real gem is that Tinsley is apparently too lazy to draw that policeman's hand.

Actually this kind of has a point. ONE YEAR LATER. AS IN NOT THREE WEEKS AFTER THE FUCKING ELECTION
