That damned Santa Claus

What's Mallard raving about today?

Santa Claus, Barack Obama.

At any time over the last 8 years, this exact same panel could have been done with just a few minor changes:
  1. Instead of a child, a Wealthy Captain of Industry sits on Santa's Lap.
  2. Instead of asking for gifts, he asks for tax breaks which benefit only the wealthiest Americans and massive deregulation so he can profit obscenely while destroying the entire Global Financial System.
  3. Instead of Barack Obama, Santa decries being mistaken for President Bush.
This would not be much funnier, but it would at least bear some passing resemblance to reality.

Did you hear the good news? Obama is making it better for us already! Most people don't realize how much money there is out there. During economic times like this, there is more money to be had than ever. Because of the bailouts and economy, lenders are bending over backwards to bail you out too. Believe it or not, there is people getting tons of cheap money nowdays to start businesses, buy homes, pay off debt, and more. Bailout is for YOU

WTF? Even if you think that Barack Obama is all about the giveaways, ha ha, you would be hard-pressed to find two less-mistakable figures. I mean, Santa Claus looks more like Sarah Palin than Barack Obama.

Better line for disgruntled Santa:

"This keeps happening ever since we gave $700 Billion to bailout Wall Street investors."

12x:
Tinkley thinks Obama is Karl Marx.

Karl Marx looks a lot like Santa.

Therefore ...

Is this Duck and Cover's first bit of comment spam? Pretty sweet.

Should I point out that the kid would actually be asking for an XBox 360? Or would getting really obvious details like that right interfere with the "you dern kids get off my porch" vibe Tinsley's got going on?

So did Santa just happen to forget that giving kids free stuff is his job?

Mention of Barack Obama in any way = COMEDY GOLD

A pony and a Maserati (that's a car, right?)? Kids aren't this disjointed - at least not like that. He'd wish for GTA4 and "peace on earth".

And kids are only greedy because of Barack Obama.
