Those damned pop culture references

What's Mallard raving about today?

Joe Biden, Anna Nicole Smith, Britney Spears.

Hoo! Ha! Man, that Mallard, he is so down with the pop culture! Only thing is, I don't understand why Kelsey Grammar appears in this panel.

I never noticed it until reading this blog, but now the fact that all of Tinsley's caricatures have their eyes closed is starting to bug me.

Is it really that hard to draw eyes?

Kelsey Grammer? I thought it was James Baker.

maybe their eyes are closed as some sort of half-assed commentary that "liberals" don't see the world quite right,
or that they love the sound of their own voices so much they have to close eyes to as not to tear up

It does look like Biden; let's give credit where it's due. The subject matter is stupid, but the art isn't as bad as usual.

What I don't understand is why Biden doesn't look the same in both strips.

Is it because he's drawn from a kinda different angle?

The two men look nothing alike. Is it that hard to be consistent from day to day? He could have erased the writing from Tuesday's and put in today's 'jokes'.

Maybe it's a joke itself, that the only Democratic candidates that most people know now are easily identified by their race or gender. The rest are just old white guys.
