That damned Stimulation

What's Mallard raving about today?


Eww. Just...eww.

I give Tinsley credit for not showing the other hand...

exanonymous said...

Isn't the right wing supposed to be "moral"?

dlauthor said...

Whoo! Two whole have already passed since the stimulus got signed into law! It must not have worked! I guess we should have done nothing but cut rich people's taxes after all.

And yeah, ewww.

Word verification: STFU. I shit you not. Even the random-word generators are trying to communicate with Brucie.

I think Tinkley may be projecting his own personal problems into this strip. Tax cuts are probably the only thing that "stimulate" him, if you get my drift.

WV: drolyi. What Tinkley wishes Polish people think his humor is.

I agree with dlauthor -- I think even the WV algorithm is trying to send messages to BT. My last one was "eateduck".

What does today's "comic" mean?

I get the "stimulus is bad" meme, but what does the beggar in a nice suit represent?

Banks? Congress? Officeworkers whose jobs disappeared through no fault of their own?

Tinkley, if you're going to put a beggar in a suit, you've got to give a clue as to what happened.

Of course, first you have to get a clue.


vw = "tiersom". The random-word generator is definitely onto Tinkley!

Rootbeer said...

Aww, poor jowly middle-adged dumpy white man... you're always hit the hardest during rough economic times, aren't you?

Anonymous said...

Is this where I can make "package" jokes?

WV: Dumpunki. No more need be said.

Factinista said...

It's interesting that Tinsley thinks he can just write some completely random scenario, and if the word "stimulus" is added in some way, it becomes comedy gold. Somehow.

Jazzbumpa said...

Well, I think you guys have pretty much covered it. Good job!

waveydavey - good try on the WV, but I gotta tell you, the "yi" word ending is distinctly Hungarian.

WV: stingis. I believe this is Repugnicant opposition to stimulation of any - even the "ewww" - kind.

"A stimulus walked into a bar, and the bartender said ..."

One of the [few] things i like about Tinsley, is his seeminglely lack of knowledge egarding Freudian Slips and how he is capable of making them in drawing too.

This is part of BO's "damned stimulation."

Mortgage Plans Turn Economics Upside-Down. By Thomas Sowell

Obama is going to bailout losers -- people who the government forced bankers to give mortgages, even though the people could never pay them back -- and punish the achievers who didn't buy more house than they could afford, and have been making their payments. The Housing Plan is a break for those who least deserve it.

Folks, are you ready for President Obama's Rezko Rescue? Barack Obama knows how hard it is to get what you want when it comes to buying a home, but with guys like Tony Rezko, you can always get what you want, whether you can afford it or not, just ask Obama.

dlauthor said...

Did anybody hear something? It sounded like a duck farting.

Johaely said...

This goes to those anonymous around here who come with their talking points..they are not important. they are non-sequiters most of the time posted as a reason of accusation and completely unrelated to the discussion. the previous one may have a little bit of relevancy, but its just a finger-pointing accusation. So I please ask you to stop them, ok. if you're going to post something, let it be about what its being talked about OK?!

CNNBC's Rick Santelli and the "rant of the year." Way to go Rick. Finally someone besides conservative talk radio grew a pair. Wonder if Rick Santelli will have a job tomorrow or will he have to go on air and apologize to the Messiah.

Kyle said...

Yeah, 'bout time someone GROWS A PAIR! *posts anonymously*

GeoX said...

So is it the case that our anonymous friends are such gigantic fucking chickenshits because they're terrified that Obama thugs will read Duck and Cover comments and send government goons after them? No wonder they start sobbing and hysterically wetting themselves at the very mention of terra'ists. DaveyK? You don't think it might be a good idea to turn off anonymous commenting? Force these assholes to put up or shut up?
