That damned plant

What's Mallard raving about today?

Planted questions.

For seven years the President (and Vice President) have been unwilling to appear in front of anything other than audiences pre-screened for Republican Party loyalty, sending the clear message that they are only concerned for the people who voted for them.

But this is, apparently, the straw that breaks the camel's back.

I think I get it. Mallard works for FEMA now.
No.. of course he means the Hillary thing. That horrible planted question something on the lines of "I'm worried about the environment. What's your plan to combat climate change?" PURE EVIL AND DUPLICITY! HOW LOW CAN SHE GET!?

The media is liberal - I've only heard of the Fema thing.

This writer's strike is killing me.

Confused - Solidarity!

And he's PenisChin's boss now.

New dimension to their relationship.

Pun intended.

Mallard ofcourse wants to make a mountain out of a molehill as compared to the lies of the current administration. Lying ain't right, but you can't pretend it's practiced by only one party.

In science, if asked a question you can't answer, you are supposed to say "I don't know that." Optional to add that you could research it or point someone in the right direction. In stick-to-your-guns conservative politics, "I don't know" is an admission of weakness, especially in a debate.

Ofcourse, if Republicans don't plant questions, they obviously have other devious underhanded methods. http://www.boston.com/news/local/new_hampshire/articles/2006/09/26/rep_bass_aide_posed_as_opponents_supporter_on_blogs/

Yeah, mallard would be much more believable if his outrage o' meter about planted questions had fired oh... 5-6 years ago?

As i've posted before, I don't understand why mallard goes on about the liberal media and then gives reports like this on the news. Well I figured it out!!!! Mallard is actually just reading a sheet to anybody within twenty feet to listen. It comes from all the drunk driving.

Exanonymous: There are a couple of things that'll prevent such annoyances--TinyURL.com is a BIG help with those damned long URLs, and I saved myself a lot of time by Googling then copying the HTML code for "a href" so I can do stuff like this.

I said my little piece about this strip in yestiddy's thread.

...And as for Tuesday's strip: Man, Tinny, it must thoroughly burn your pathetic ass that Big Dog is still so monumentally popular and respected (especially after all these years of Republican control) that even Li'l Dubbie's daddy considers him the "go-to guy" these days.

So enjoy these petty, stubborn tantrum-pitchings between public declarations of your own stupidity, slovenliness, and sexual perversity; it's the closest your strip will ever come to humor.

DAVEYK:

THIS NEEDS WIDER DISTRIBUTION!

But how does homosexual necrophiliac duck rape figure into God's plan?

Well, I'd *expect* this from pigeons.

Yeah, Mallards are the worst offenders. The very etymology of the name should tell you that. From the OED - "Used in Fr. as masculine formative, intensive, augmentative, and often pejorative".

Just like a drunkard is the epitome of drunks, and a dullard is the epitome of dull, the mallard is the epitome of males. They will mate with just about any species of waterfowl if they can get away with it.

Hopefully FirstSheaf's hubby is a duck hunter, so he can rid the planet of these offensive beasts...
