That damned Sanjaya

What's Mallard raving about today?


Not only does Mallard taunt us by not featuring Evil Sun.

Not only does he slap us in the face with an out-of-date Sanjaya reference and remind us of how resentful we all are that we even know who Sanjaya is.

But he has the nerve to do it while bringing back the, for lack of a better word, poetry.

What's really interesting to me is that the idiot daughter on the other end of the phone is Straw Liberal's Conservative-dating daughter. Shall we assume that said boyfriend is the one who got her hooked on American Idol?

Update: I think Kaitlyn's right and this isn't poetry. I mistook the rhythm created by the punctuation (meant to represent one side of a phone call) for an attempt at meter. I blame Mallard's previous poetry for making me believe this could have been poetry in the first place.

I don't see the 'poetry'.. not even an attempt at a rhyme...

I thought he was talking to 'Pompkin', some straw person he knows.

Oh! Sanjaya! Take that, liberal media.

It is the media's fault. He was the only contestant they talked about, so if you don't watch American Idol (I didn't - NCIS is on at the same time), he's the only name you know.

And look how pathetic today's youth are! They're upset about a TV show - in fact, they're upset about something that happened weeks ago! Ha ha! I hate liberals.

I suppose his main point is that America's youth only care about frivolous things. To the extent that might be true, I see it as the fault of corporate America which continues to feed us style but no substance. There is profit to be had in keeping the people ignorant.

However, I disagree that America's young don't care about the issues of the day. This government is screwing them and they know it. Tinsley just refuses to take notice when they take action. He'll just pen another "Going Green" strip and throw back another bottle of rubbing alcohol.

She doesn't just date conservatives. She's a conservative herself.

In fairness, Tinshley probably doesn't remember that.

Have you noticed that Tinshley's lead time is getting longer? It used to be two weeks, but it took three for him to cash in on the Virginia Tech tragedy and four to mention Sanjaya's elimination.

Maybe he needs more time for the meetings.
