That damned Quarter

What's Mallard raving about today?

Barack Obama, The Economy.

Holy crap! The economy is going to grow by almost 120% (ht: Anthony) 120 times 360 times (ht: Gold-Digging Nanny) while Obama is President. Damn, even Mallard's a believer.

I guess when you have a President who actually accomplishes something positive, you have to criticize for the pettiest shit imaginable.

Methinks Mallard's attempts to watch Obama like a hawk got sidetracked by watching TV like a couch potato.

Dear Tinsley,

Here.

You now have the option to mention this and become a political/sociological commentator by pointing out that "presidential collectibles" is not a partisan issue, or you can just continue to be a duckhole.

Thank yew.

Anthony said...

DaveyK-- I'm not sure I get your math. 30 isn't 120% of 1/4.

At least an Obama Commemorative Quarter would be an AMERICAN-MADE Quarter!

Nick, thanks for the link to the Moonie-owned Washington Times "Bush" store, prominently featuring: "Dominican Republic cigar. Sumatra wrapper."

They're commemorating Obama's predecessor by sending money to foreigners!

Still gotta take issue with your math, DaveyK. Mallard says THREE easy payments of $29.95, so it should be 360 times, not 120.

Gold-Digging Nanny said...

And in the interest of evenhandedness, I must add that collectible plates and coins are in my humble opinion cheesier than coffee table books and cigars. Cigars are all class. And I for one judge all my presidents by the memorabilia they appear on. My Warren G. Harding commemorative beer glass is pretty badass, especially compared to my Dwight Eisenhower plastic snow globe.

If we've supposedly elected a socialist terrorist sympathizer, why are you focusing on collectibles?!

I think this is the beauty of Mallard Fillmore. Sure, he'll parrot the usual Republican talking points, but I wonder if his heart's really in it. What he *really* wants to do is complain about all the small things in life that pisses him off, and how everyone is stupid and should stop doing everything.

The Jerry Seinfeld of Hatred, if you will.

Unfortunately, Mallard only gets published because it's a rightwing cartoon, so Tinsley has to keep it that way.

Well, given that the three payments are 5c less than 120x each, it rounds out to be approximately 359x as much.

DaveyK said...

God, I hope the math is close enough this time. I refuse to figure out the NPV of three $29.95 installments.

You forgot shipping! And taxes!


Yes, Obama is the first and only president to have cheesy commemorative shit made with his face on it. It's all part of our plan to take over the world, see.

And you know the *lovely* Sept 11th memorial coins and bills? Well, they're really just in memory of the liberals that died on that day.

rewinn said...

The sad thing is: there *are* good jokes to be made about cheesy commemoratives. But Tinkley can't make them, because he's political first and funny second or, too often, not at all.

Luckily, he has we'all to be funny for him. Maybe he'll asterisk this blog in sometime?

Isn't that the name of Michael Richards' standup routine?

Mallard really hates America.

Wait til he gets the closing of gitmo in oh, March.

fuckreagan said...

Tinsley thinks Obama will turn the economy 360 degrees. He prefers to turn society 180 degrees from a technologically and socially advanced era to holy wars and Medieval technology. Do not worry, history suggests that some stupid asshole dictator will fulfill his dream.

Tinsley should emulate Jerry Seinfeld because a comic about nothing would be better than this shit.

Good thing that there wasn't any ridiculous Bush memorabilia! How tasteless would a Mission Accomplished Doll be!

Kyle said...

I would love to get that Mission Accomplished doll for ironic purposes. I'd certainly never pay for it, but in 150 years it would be like having an Andrew Johnson "Reconstruction is Going Great!" action figure.

Marion Delgado said...

Mallard is right.

People who COLLECT COLLECTIBLES are COLLECTIVISTS!

Stalin bought a complete set of tsar's family bobblehead dolls just before he opened the gulags.

Lenin tried to get FDR to deed the Franklin Mint over to him.

vatoks: what mallard's death cult call their suicide commandos.
