Those damned predictions

What's Mallard raving about today?

Hillary Clinton, someone else, mean old boy bullies.

It's interesting to note that bullies wear propeller-beanies in Mallard's fevered persecution-complex of an imagination (the same imagination in which Senator Clinton has made a complaint remotely related to the one Mallard continues to accuse her of).

Propeller-beanies are, of course, standard semiotics for "nerd," the target of the bully, rather than the bully.

That tells you pretty much everything you need to know about Mallard and how seriously one should take anything he says.

Ah, the same ole "let's put words in other people's mouths" tactic to insulting a presidential candidate.

Guess what? Good old white boys will gang up and chortle, declare war, and declare their religion their most important qualification to run a country that supports seperation of church and state.

I'll take the waffler with her badly drawn beady little eyes over the downright ignorantly hypocritical, thanks!

I suspect Tinny's pissy pique is just cold leftovers from Hillary's "vast right-wing conspiracy" remark, made many years ago--and proven true by the very words of people directly involved--describing the pathetic ten years of failed attempts to destroy her husband. (Watch The Hunting Of The President sometime; it's sad...but it has a happy ending.)

At the time, Republicans huffed and harrumphed at the very idea that they would be accused of such a thing, but even as right-wing blogs market "How Do We Beat The Bitch?" T-shirts today, righties squeal and shriek that anyone who even mildly disagrees with current White House policy is merely a dirty "Bush-hater"...and, displaying the typical grand originality of Rush Limbaugh, bark about a "vast LEFT-wing conspiracy."

Also, Tinny knows that the GOP will happily stoop to every filthy trick in the book to rig an election. That's the real purpose of this strip; it's Tinny's attempt to inoculate against the inevitable revelations of the GOP's election-time tactics.

And it is waffling, Tinny. I know it's "okay if a Republican does it," but that doesn't change what it is.

Oh, no --the Fargo Forum is replacing 'Mallard Fillmore' with 'Classic Peanuts!'
