That damned SNL

What's Mallard raving about today?

Presidential candidates, SNL.

Who here believes that Mallard is still awake on Saturday night when SNL comes on?

It would have been more relevant to say The Daily Show or Colbert Report.


But worse, because he shouldn't go near them.



This is actually good - coming from him. Non-offensive, not even trying to be offensive or regurgitate a talking point.

It is Friday the 13th.

Kaitlyn, the lack of a strawman is truly disturbing.

Awake, maybe.

Sober, no.

Now we know why the Republican Party had such a dismally bad set of candidates: all the good ones were not used to flying, not married to a rich heiress, or afraid of clowns.

When I saw this, I kept looking for something typical of Tinz, but only the drawings are his.

Ghostwriter, maybe?

One should also remember that prospective candidates have to deal with unpleasant attacks from the media. Often in cartoon form. I mean, I wouldn't want to find out that something I said in passing was being made into a straw man by a picture of a duck.

Brilliant.
Sums up quite a bit.

Celia - you win today. This is the first MF strip in a long time that hasn't made me angry. Thanks?

GeoX said...

Ha! This one wasn't too bad, you say? Well, he more than makes up for that with today's strip, in which he vehemently confirms himself as a first-class shithead Yech.

McCain was on SNL. Clinton was on SNL. I don't remember Obama being on SNL, but he probably was.

I just don't find it an amusing cartoon even though I know it's true. Candidates are just trying to reach the generation that doesn't listen to rant-radio and prefers comedy, and it ticks Bruce and ilk off.
