Those damned Benjamins

What's Mallard raving about today?

Straw Men, Political Correctness, Benjamin Franklin.

I hate to admit that it's something of a relief to get back to a standard Mallard Straw Man. Though I have to say that insunuating that Straw PC Liberal doesn't know who Benjamin Franklin is doesn't really help the argument since it makes it far less believable. Attempting to gild the lilly a bit too much with that one.

That said, this particular quote from Benjamin Franklin is somewhat ironic when you are a Fox News-watching (pdf), rubber-stamp Republican supporter, whose life is largely devoted to decrying the media for their so-called "liberal bias" whenever they attempt to shine light on what the government is up to.

Ignorance indeed.

This might be redundant but I don't get this. Is he saying "everyone is stupid but me" again?

And is Mallard a reporter or is he a history teacher?

Yes, and he's just a talking points duck.
