That damned forgetfulness

What's Mallard raving about today?

D-Day.

I agree, we should never forget. Never.

Like Mallard who also never forgot in 2004 but forgot in 2006 and 2005.

Should I be miffed at the fact that he uses the Tom Brokaw phrase of Greatest Generation.

I like to point out the strip from 2005.

In it, Mallard Filmore thinks it's newsworthy that the circulation of one newspaper is increasing and another one is decreasing. Now, Tinsley is pointing out this fact because it's a right wing newspaper that is increasing its circulation and that's fine for a right wing cartoonist but still lame.

But Mallard is supposed to be a journalist, where's the story? And according to this list at

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_newspapers_in_the_United_States_by_circulation

The Washington times isn't even on the list of 100 top circulation newspapers, wheras the Washington Post is at number 5. It means nothing.

Do you think Mallard would use the same logic to point out Keith Oberman's TV ratings increase vs. Bill O'reilly's ratings decrease, despite the fact Bill's ratings are still much better than Olberman's?

It's fine if Olberman wants to point it out his ratings increase, but it sounds like loser talk when someone else points it out.

Besides, it just shows how lazy Mallard is, "I read somewhere, blah blah, blah, it would be a great story. We should do it"

Yeah,

You see Mallard, if you read it somewhere, The story has already been done,
Find your own story, you lazy duck

It was only 10 days ago that Tinshley offered equally trite sentiments for Memorial Day.

This isn't a comic. It's a date, a sentence, and two ill-formed ellipses (two dots, Tinshley? really?) framing a bad drawing of a duck reading a book (which book?). It doesn't have a point besides telling amnesiacs about D-Day.

Good of Tinshley to remember this year, though. Must have been having a rare lucid moment. Fortunately, he went back to making unfunny jokes about bad television, so the world gets to stay on its axis.

The 2004 one is amazingly stupid and offensive.

The biggest isolationists in the '30s and '40s were... conservative.


And the differences between WW2 and the current catastrofuck are so many this is even stupider, ignoring who didn't want to enter the war back then.

Liberals and democrats can be soldiers and patriotic as well as conservatives.

There was a clear enemy in Europe in WW2, as opposed to everyone who hates us.

And the Iraqis hate Tinshley, I know this for a fact. They do, however, love Lionel Ritchie.
