Those damned students

What's Mallard raving about today?

Sodom, Gomorrah, Students.

I'm confused.

Is that a high-school student reading the paper, self-reflexively commenting on his own generation?

Is that his mom who doesn't recognize Sodom and Gomorrah?

Didn't this statistic come from a book yesterday, why are we talking about USA Today suddenly?

I'll give Tinsley credit for admitting that he didn't actually read the book in question, he only read about it in USA Today.

Looking around online, I can find plenty of references to the statistic that 50% of high school students believe Sodom and Gomorrah were married, but I don't see anything that identifies where this statistic originates. Who did the study? What was the exact question?

Maybe I should just be glad that Tinsley is devoting his strips to something this idiotic rather than next week's inevitable series about Clinton firing 93 US attorneys.

Ugh that cartoon is so stupid. That lady is a liberal.

"living together" is what liberals love, we hate marriage, except for gays, we only want teh gays to marry and the straights can "live together".


That cartoon actually pissed me off. Glad I looked at it online instead of in the paper first.

As for Clinton firing US Attorneys, the paper had a bit about how all the presidents fire US Attorneys. During their first year in office. Why? Because all the previous ones were appointed by their opponents. It didn't say Bush 41 fired attorneys, probably because he was just an extension of Reagan, or so he though.

But what's odd is firing attorneys you hired well into your second term. And these were not incompetent attorneys. They were just not nice enough to the Republicans and too nice to the Democrats.

This mess should get Bush impeached. But he can't resign or get thrown out of office, because then we'll have President Cheney. For real, not just the shadow Preznit.

His advisors can't testify in public, under oath, with a transcript. That shows, at the very least a belief that Bush and his office are above the American people and can't be held accountable to us, the voters.

If they knew they'd have to testify, they couldn't properly advise him. B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T.

The only reason he's saying that is because they did discuss illegal things. You know how there were 18 minutes missing from Nixon's tapes? Try 6 years.


I wish I could have voted in '04. I'm sure my one vote for Kerry would have made Tennessee blue.

I'll be on a college campus come Novemer 2008. Yay! I'll be as close to the election process as most of us get!

I solemnly swear not to join the Young Republicans. If I do, I told my sister she can't give away my MADs and other childish liberal books, I'd sell them. And being a YR would lose me my scholarship. Why would a Republican volunteer for 150 hours a year? The poor are that way on purpose, as are the elderly, the schoolchildren, and the animals at the Humane Society.

Hopefully, I'm kidding. I'm just playing with the current stereotype of republicans by us liberal tree-hugging nutjobs. It was low, Mallard never resorts to stereotypes.

Thank goodness, now I can read the book in peace.
