That damned weather

What's Mallard raving about today?

Weather, NBC, CBS.

NBC or CBS are going to buy the Weather Channel? And this will give them the power to control the weather?

Naturally, if FOX bought the weather channel, they would report only the true weather.

And naturally, everything on NBC and CBS is evilneoconsevilneocons. I love watching those two channels because all their shows are dedicated to blasting the poor, everyday common sense conservative.

In fact, I remember quite distinctly that the NBC made a big deal about Sylar in Hereos using his evil republican powers to do evil republican things. He always came in trying to lower taxes or inform people about the global warming hoax and all the so-called heroes were like "No! You are EVUL!" and then they blew him up thus indoctrinating the next generation.

The absurd is fun!

I can hardly wait until Fox News buys the Golf Network, and they'll be all "Tiger Woods is obviously a radical terrorist because look at how good he is in the sand. Some say he must have spent a lot of time in some desert, perhaps training in the Middle East."

I heard that Tiger was educated in a Madrassa. Some say he might be a secret Muslim. And by the way, have you heard what his preacher said that one time 15 years ago?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't NBC and CBS both have network shows that give weather reports? And how many complaints have their been about spinning the weather to make Republicans look bad?

Oops, I forgot this was a nonsensical strawman simply drawn to smear liberals. Never mind.

It's those bastard weatherpersons (PC!) at it. Just goes to show you can never trust people in loud jackets. If they're not fiddling about with the weather, they're ruining the stock market.

Mallard is the starchy, chemical-laden comfort food of the radical far right.

Everyone knows that there's no factual nutrition in it, and in the long run it makes you fat, dumb and ugly.

But every time you take a bite, you are transported back to a time where you ruled the playground with a chubby fist and those smart kids feared you.

"...most of the flooding will occur in red states..."

Must the the wrath of God!

Gah, Mallard's crotch is on full display here. It's *very* disturbing.

I was going to say that this came out of nowhere - no one wants to buy the Weather Channel, NBC or CBS haven't said "Republicans are eeeeevil, lolz" in the last month or so - except there's been a lot of rain over the last couple of weeks in the south and midwest. Red states.

But I doubt he considered that, and just had no ideas as usual and decided a standard network bashing strip would do.

I thought The Weather Channel was liberal all by itself. Didn't some republican say global warming was created to boost their ratings? I don't remember the exact quote.

Why is he wearing his suit jacket and tie to watch the weather channel?

I could understand the attire if he wasn't sitting down, if he was getting ready to go out and wanted to check the weather.

But no - couch potato position, work clothes.

He's wearing his suit jacket and tie because he desperately wishes that he was from McNelly's "Shoe" instead of this dreck ...

rewinn said...

Today's script pushes the idea that the media is unfair against Republicans, because the media always reports bad things that happen in Red states and never reports bad things that happen in blue states.

That the premise in completely false, in a factual way, doesn't matter. Tinsley's target audience has a moment of happiness at having a cartoon duck agree with them, and that's all they need.

It's a well-known fact that an overwhelmingly large amount of meteorologists are liberals.

This comic strip is so great because the most interesting thing to look at in the paper every day is a duck sitting around watching TV, or maybe once in a while reading a teleprompter, or sometimes just a duck's head floating in space. Who could ever get enough of that?

The insane right-wing lies are just a bonus.
