That damned Wind

What's Mallard raving about today?

Ted Kennedy, Wind Power, Liberals.

Ha! It's funny because Liberals can't hold nuanced positions on any issue! It's always all-or-nothing with those Liberals!

A word of advice for Mallard, however. You really should not do topics that The Daily Show has already done, because you don't come off well by comparison. (Sadly, I couldn't find a video of the Cape Wind segment to link to.)

That Daily Show clip was too damn funny.

Of course, The Daily Show and the Colbert Report are always funnier than Tinny and his duck.

Nothing beats the book page that made Tinsley so mad he made pissy comic strips about Jon Stewart. The one where Jon Stewart implied that he was an unfunny right-wing butt kisser, and he replied implying Jon Stewart sleeps with little boys.

So I'm guessing he doesn't watch the Daily Show. At all. Ever.

*sees new strip*

Oh Lord, it's another looooonnng week ahead...and yet, bonus points for moderately accurate caricature, complete with eyes open! (Well, "accurate," aside from the rodent teeth, anyway...God knows Tinny's had plenty of practice for this one, so it should be better than usual...)

But points deducted for reducing the punchline to the last sentence of a boring Tinny lecture (as usual), so this one's a draw.

What are the chances Tin-Tin will do a strip about Giuliani's horrifyingly tasteless "$9.11" fundraiser invitation? (You know damned well if a Democrat did it, we'd never hear the end of it.)

BWD - never, probably.

9/11 Tourettes summed it up perfectly, if I can talk about something funny.

Looking at the 9/25 comic again, I'm confused anew - was there a big liberal hatred of Bob Dylan's Victoria Secret ads? I don't remember when they came out (last 3 years maybe?), but I do remember seeing some thing somewhere that was basically, "Ew... he's old."

Or it's just Tinny assuming that since all liberals lurv Dylan.

Who does Tinny listen to? Music, people, I know he listens to Rush Limbaugh. (And not the band!)

Ted Nugent. That's it.

Kaitlyn said...

And not because of his talent.

Do people really only listen to artists because they agree with their political views?

I don't think so, not in the real world, or else my dad wouldn't give a flying fuck about John Lennon.

So the liberal remarks that Ted Kennedy used to be one of his heroes, and Mallard reacts as if the liberal is ranting and raving and freaking out. This is actually a pretty common theme in right-wing commentary, blow some innocuous statement into proof that liberals are "angry".

"Nuanced positions"?!
Nice use of the euphemism!
