What's Mallard raving about today?
Hugo Chavez, the 20th century.
When I first looked at this panel, I was sure that caricature was supposed to be Al Gore.
Which led me to notice that today's panel has 4 standard Mallardisms: a bad caricature, a bad caricature with eyes closed, a bad caricature with a disturbingly lumpy index finger, ellipses with an extra dot.
Of these, that last one bugs me the most because, goddamn it, it would be so easy to fix.
