That damned R-E-S-P-E-C-T

What's Mallard raving about today?

Dogs, Voter Registration.

I know Mallard is in love with this story, because it reaffirms his belief that hordes of the Great Unwashed are registering to vote for the Other Guys. (Heaven defend us! Next they'll be extending Suffrage to Women!)

But given that it takes a full paragraph to re-state the back story every single god damned day, he should have reconsidered going down this path.

Ohhhhhhhhh, now I gets it. This is all about those damned Mexicans comin' over here to pick our fruit and vote in our booths and die in our emergency rooms!

Why didn't you just come out and say that in the beginning, Tinny, you sad little tool? All this voting-dog nonsense is difficult to take seriously in a strip where a frickin' waterfowl is the spokeperson for the right wing...

(Can't wait for the two-week lag to run out, so I can see if Tinny's got the sack to choose a side in the Giuliani/NYFD hose-fight...)

I think Tinshley's syndicate should institute a new rule: if he's just going to draw the exact same cartoon four or five different ways over the course of the week, they should only pay him for the first one.

Or they could drop him altogether.

Tinsley obviously feels kinship wth someone else who's gotten fined and has to do community service.

This is as bad as Mallard gets. There is absolutely no joke to be found in this strip, and he doesn't make any point that wasn't already made earlier in the week.

On top of that, his premise is incorrect. While Jane Balogh was offered a plea deal with a punishment of a fine and community service, she turned it down and has pleaded not guilty.
