What's Mallard raving about today?
It took me forever to figure out today's panel. But then, I suddenly realized that, in Mallard's world, he believes Hillary has some sort of machine and that her statement about the right-wing conspiracy is not meant to be ironic. Meaning that Mallard either believes Hillary did, in some way, defeat the right-wing noise machine or that it never existed.
At that point, the panel starts to take some sort of shape.
None of which explains how Hillary reads the newspaper through closed eyes or how she reads page 1 when she's clearly turned to page 4.
