That damned price

What's Mallard raving about today?

Housing and Gas Prices.

Apparently Mallard is aware of the housing crisis and rising gas prices. He has absolutely nothing of value to say about either matter. But he wants his readers to know he is aware, nonetheless. So he combines both into a single incomprehensible panel.

You liberal-types just don't get it. Collapse of the housing market = bad. High gas prices = bad. Anything bad = liberal/Democrat. What this highly amusing strip is saying is that the Democrats are driving this country off a cliff in a handbasket and it's the liberals' fault. Laughed so hard I almost dropped the newspaper.

I don't actually see him saying it in today's strip specifically, but yes, his strip does have a general undercurrent of "Anything liberals do or support is, by definition, Bad and/or Wrong, and anything Bad and/or Wrong is, by definition, something only liberals do or support." Even when he comes out in favor of things nobody's actually against, or in opposition to things nobody's actually for, I'm pretty sure he only does it to further that particular meme.

This strip is so fucking insipid I have nothing to say. The mind boggles that he gets PAID for this lazy nothingness.
