That damned Straw Man

What's Mallard raving about today?

A Senator Clinton Straw Man.

A Straw Man extraordinaire today! Let's see if we can't follow Mallard's example...

Q: Mallard, can you explain why so many people think you have sex with goats?
A: Because I do.

Hmmm, when you decide making shit up out of whole cloth is totally acceptable, this stuff just writes itself.

Wait, isn't it Bush who when cornered in press conferences, makes some comment that we just don't understand* and that he is the Decider?

*re-reading the segment "we just don't understand" I realized that it has two distinct meanings. Then I realized both work.

Careful there, DuckandCover Blog dude!
If Tinsley reads this, he's going to try to get even by putting together* a cartoon in which he insinuates you are a pedophile. And then you shall be ruined. Look at what happened to Jon Stewart.

* Notice, I did not say "draw," or "write."

I would love it if Tinsley read this blog. His inevitable response would be hilarious. (Not intentionally, of course.)

Bill the Splut said...

A "smug, superior attitude"? Did Tinsley use a mirror for his drawing board today?

Michael said...

Why is Mallard calling Jack Nicholson "Senator Clinton"?

"Smug superior attitude?"

Holy $%#@, that came from the duck that grins at us in every Sunday's splash panel with the Smirk Of Smug Superiority? From the "cartoonist" who once said of people who don't buy into the Laffer Curve, "Idiots. You can't stop 'em, you can only hope to contain 'em?"

Wowwwwwwwww. For a guy who so dearly enjoys anti-Semitic caricatures, he sure has a lot of chutzpah.

How it would really go:

CLINTON: Excuse me ... you're .. a DUCK! And the GOP says DUCKS don't have any rights at all, especially the right to go on living ONE MORE SECOND, right?

MALLARD: Uh, look ....

CLINTON: (Pulling a concealed handgun* out) DIE YOU ANTHROPOMORPHIC HORROR! DIE!


And quick thinking by Hillary's staff treats the entire press contingent to a succulent duck feast - ensuring favorable coverage for 2 weeks.

And so, Mallard changed history and secured the nomination for the wife of his worst enemy. For his rantings were not just lining birdcages - they were read carefully by Fate - and Fate does not believe in footnotes in .. the Twilight Zone.

(music would rise up at this point).
