What's Mallard raving about today?
Probably bound to happen sometime; still...AAAAAAAAAEEEEEEE!!! I AGREED WHOLEHEARTEDLY WITH SOMETHING MALLARD SAID!! THE PAIN!! MAKE IT GO AWAY!! MAKE IT GO AWAY!!!!!(For those who don't know, Veronica Mars was one of the smartest, best-written-and-acted shows in teevee history, and the guy I want to deport is the genius who programmed it opposite House.)
I have been actively driven from wanting to even try watching Veronica Mars, because the first person I saw "write" about how good it was was Tinshley.His anguish over its cancellation brings me joy. Now he knows what's like to be an Arrested Development fan.
Concerning yesterday's note about newspapers publishing Mallard Fillmore as "balance to liberal cartoonists"...For a long time, as a joke, I've told friends that MF was clearly a liberal "plant": that is, it fills a slot that might otherwise be taken by a serious conservative strip, while at the same time undermining that cause by presenting MF's inanity and consistently poor quality as actually being represenative of conservative thought. (As proof I've offered the Boston Globe, a famously "liberal" paper which prints MF, but also has on its editorial page the columnist Jeff Jacoby who could essentially be thought of as MF's twin in the print-world; always, laughably, wrong about everything.)In short, I've suggested, if one wanted to make up a cariactured, straw-man spokesman to discredit conservative views, it's hard to imagine how one could do better than simply publishing Tinsley (or Jacoby) puts out daily.But after reading these last few days, good grief... I'm starting to think I might have really been on to something...
Tinshley's Veronica Mars fandom is his one adorable quality.
I'm getting plenty sick of Tinsley's "I'm going to say something extremely racist and offensive...except I'm not talking about what you think I am!" shtick.
the only time i agreed with mallard was when he did some anti zero tolerance strips.
