That damned Letterman

What's Mallard raving about today?

David Letterman, President Obama.

"Damn TV! Won't say things I already agree with!"

If you want a show that makes fun of President Obama, Mallard, may I suggest The Daily Show?

Because David Letterman is, after all, the very pulse of modern culture, from which we can judge not just the media, but America as a whole.

Geez, Mallard, Pot meet kettle.

I see that the ghost of Phallus Q. Freudian-Chin continues to haunt Tinshley's studio. Seriously, there's gotta be some deep-seated repression issue with that guy, doesn't there?

Given that his lone fan, Anonycoward, is such a flagrant closet case, I guess it shouldn't be such a surprise.

Yes, I think BakaHoushi sums things up nicely.

What MF and the rest of the neocons can't seem to understand is that, by and large, most folks don't have a lot of bad things to say about Obama for the simple reason that they agree with him most of the time.

Instead they prefer to dismiss this as simple pandering by the usual suspects[*] (for obvious reasons). While the simple reality is that this is --at least at present-- a reasonable representation of the how the American people feel.

But this simple point is this: "You lost. The American people rejected your idiocy. Deal with it."

P.S. If we needed any further evidence of just how lame and hopeless Tinsley's (and the rest of his ilk's) position is, we should just simply note the fact that, in order to make his point, he finds it necessary to paint David Letterman[!] as a mouth-puppet of the radical left.

MF should watch Rachel Maddow if he wants to see someone intelligently challenge Obama. She does it far more credibly and convincingly than Hannity, et al., but I'm sure he'd choke at agreeing with anything she said.

Does anyone have the stats on how many Bush jokes Tinsley made over the last eight years?

an Anonymous asked, "Does anyone have the stats on how many Bush jokes Tinsley made over the last eight years?"

I seem to remember there were a few, actually, but most of them revolved around the noise-machine's meme that the failures of the adsinistration were down to it being not far enough to the right.

I know I've said this several times before, but cowardice and hypocrisy are two of my pet peeves.

This criticism is coming from a cartoonist who kept silent, and is still silent, on an issue that has resulted in over a million deaths and 1.8 million refugees -- an issue with which he claimed to disagree from the beginning. And he's questioning the integrity of a late night comedian for not making jokes about Obama's teleprompter or whatever?

If David Letterman hadn't told mean jokes about Bush and Cheney, America would not be so angry about the lying, dead soldiers and torture.

Good catch, Mr. Tinkley!
