Those damned opponents

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, Joe Biden, Sonia Sotomayor

Nice timing.

Someone needs to casually ask Tinsley why the GOP can't attract minority voters so he can go a rant about how it's because black people are stupid and easily seduced by silver-tongued Democrats. Then, he can go back to talking about how Obama is TEH REAL RACIST. Should be good for a laff.

I had a sudden vision upon reading this morning's "comic" strip from our man Tinsley. I'd bet that he actually believes the stuff he writes. Moreover, I'd bet that in his typical drunken stupor, his characters actually talk to him and it's this talk that makes him so angry and bitter. I edited today's strip so we can see what President Obama is actually saying to Tinsley.

Bruce Tinsley draws President Obama's lips -- thin and wormlike in real-life -- as exaggeratedly thick, evoking a racial stereotype favored by Klansmen.

I applaud the colorist's attempt to downplay the racism by not shading his lower lip, if intentional. If not, at least there's SOMEONE at King Features Syndicate who can truthfully claim to be colorblind.

If Obama had nominated a white male, the right would be screaming how racist he is for NOT nominating a minority. Amazingly, they've found a way to make him the racist by taking random sentence fragments out of context.

WV: butscar; what Tinsley has from pulling so many crap ideas out of his ass.

Similar to the tortured logic about torture, neocons are lining up to say "It wasn't an insult, and she deserved the insult because libruls insulted Palin/Bush/Palin's daughter."

Tinkley and his ilk should take a hint from buggywhip makers: you CAN increase your share of a dwindling market by doing the same old thing over and over.

But it's a dwindling market.

That chin is starting to enter "haunting my dreams" territory. Wanna take bets that it's going to be running out of the frame by the end of the year?

Hibryd -- It already has.

Really? Man, this dude needs an art class.

Or maybe a new glasses prescription.
