That damned imagination

What's Mallard writing about today?

Imaginary letter writers, imaginary NEA letter writing campaigns, teachers.

Just when I though Mallard had found a high water mark for being pathetic and self-aggrandizing at the same time, he manages to top himself with an imaginary NEA letter writing campaign.

This letter writing campaign will be as massive as the groundswell for Walter Williams candidacy, no doubt. Speaking of which, anyone know what Mr. Williams is polling at these days?

And this is the guy who was after Barack Obama for being patronizing and condescending...

Man, if Tinny keeps this up, I'll have to call an ambulance for my OMG TEH STUPID IT BURNS injuries.

Why would "a teacher who still has high standards" write to Tinsley in the first place? Is this teacher afraid that, if Mallard gets the ax, he or she will no longer be publicly depicted as a worthless, lazy incompetent (or decomposing spinster)? After all, it's shocking that, at this late date, Tinny admits there are teachers who still have high standards.

Now let's start talking about their shitty pay, Tinny...hey, where are you going?

Evidently there aren't enough controversial subjects for Tinsley to get all self-righteous about, so he pulls this letter writing campaign out of his ass in order to have something to fill his stupid comic.

It's one thing to attack an entire profession for the perceived failings of a few, or to blame teachers for things that are actually happening but beyond their control, but this shit is just shameful. The only way anyone could think this strip is funny is if they believe a lie.

Just say anything, Tinsley. Truth doesn't matter any more.

Stupid teachers, with their standard, three-dot ellipses.

There's got to be some weird voices in Bruce's head dictating these things!

Regarding the "thank/spank" foofahrah, here's how I view it: if he is willing to assign both the credit and blame to a single source (the teachers, this week at least :S) then there is no basis for pinning academic underachievement as the hallmarks of certain minority groups as he has in the past. Wow! Is Mallard being sort of socially progressive? No.
