Those damned burgers

What's Mallard raving about today?

Immigrants.

What an amazingly tortured comparison.

To begin with, the baseline comparison is of the apples-to-kumquats variety because illegal immigrants are not being granted citizenship by "jumping" over the border.

And then the metaphor is destroyed by the intrusion of the literal image of someone getting fast food by jumping over some sort of border. Either that or legal immigrants have to buy burgers in order to be granted citizenship.

Either way, I don't trust that shifty-eyed car.

It's not surprising that Mallard pretty much said the exact same thing once already.

When did illegal immigration become a "crisis," anyway? It hasn't been that long since Republicans loved having cheap nannies and gardeners, no questions asked... If the issue is jobs, I would suggest outsourcing has eliminated more in-demand jobs than has illegal immigration... Where's the outrage?

Hey, you wanna a peek into Tinny's nightmares? This is hilarious, though potentially offensive--and judging by the comments a lot of Tinsley-grade idiots don't understand that it's a parody making fun of them and their stereotypes.

They think it's a realistic portrayal of the subject.

*sigh*

Mallard himself once said (ironically, in reference to people who don't accept the Laffer Curve), "Idiots. You can't stop 'em. You can only hope to contain 'em...."

Oh, and while I'm here, a little bookstore news:

First, it seems suddenly not that many people give a crap what Ann Coulter or Karl "Bush's Brain" Rove have to say.

*cries river*

Second, chickenhawk Momma's boy Jonah Goldberg (whose babblings Tinsley has cited a couple of times as a "source" to try to legitimize the complete and utter horsehockey he posits) has finally vomited up his long-threatened book, Liberal Fascism. People with frontal lobes (AKA traitors) are already tearing its contents apart like lions on raw meat.

I expect related strips in two weeks, Tinny.

I find this all incredibly ironic in the face of another plant in the area informing it's employees that it will be moving most of it's production line to Mexico and that it will cost Americans jobs.

Mexicans want to come here. Business companies want to go there. One can infer that Mexican workers in Mexico are treated like and paid crap.

I don't see why Mallard complains anyways. Jealousy? They don't pay taxes, he does.
