That damned Apology

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, Apologies.

I wonder what it is like living in a world in which it is inconceivable to consider the possibility of ever having made a single mistake

Obama's gradual transformation into Mac Tonight nears its horrific completion.

And you know, Bruce, if Dubya and company hadn't spent the bulk of the past decade fucking up everything they touch, Obama might have to do less apologizing on our behalf.

Tinsley is clearly working off the right-wing talking points rather than actually listening to the actual speeches, which were more along the lines of "there's been a lot of mistakes on all sides and we need to move forward".

Yeah, you'd think Tinsley would be HAPPY with how openly Obama was criticizing Europe and the Middle East, but, oh no! He also suggested that America is not perfect! Call the whaaambulance!

Much better we should have a President who is pathologically incapable of uttering the phrase "Shame on me." Party of Personal Responsibility, baby!

I have a casting substitution to announce.

In today's Mallard Fillmore, the part of President Obama shall be played by A Parsnip From "Veggie Tales".

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Oh hey, judging from that middle panel, it looks like Tinsley is on Sherri Goforth's mailing list.

(A story which coincidentally contains another example of a GOPer who cannot even begin to put together an actual apology)

The middle panel looks like one of the elephants from the drunken bad-dream sequence in Dumbo.

This is just sad.

All this cartoon really shows is that Mallard is incapable of understanding what Obama does: that he is now in the spotlight and represents the entire nation.

Every country knows we're the most powerful nation on the planet. We have the most nukes, the largest advanced military, and can basically ignore Geneva conventions and the UN when it pleases us as the past 8 years have shown. Those facts do not change with an apology, but what does happen is countries appreciate a little more humbleness and tact and a little less drunken warmongering.
