That damned R-Word

What's Mallard raving about today?

Rahm Emmanuel

Whereas poor Sarah Palin had to invent the world's lamest excuse for why it was OK when Rush Limbaugh called people retards, I feel certain Mallard will not even mention it.

But at the end of the day, who really cares? Isn't this just Political Correctness run amok, Mallard?

Jesus H., are we going to have a whole week of this crap?

And no, I don't think we'll see a mention of Lardbutt's deliberately shitting on Miss Sarah P's plate so we could all watch her eat it, either.

Oh, Mallard, you had me at "Hi, I'm Rahm Emmanuel." Well, to be accurate, that's when I knew who you were trying to draw, and that pretty much told me what I was mildly curious about, so it's actually when I stopped paying attention.

Considering how far Sarah Palin has to reach for her daily outrage, she's probably considering whether or not to claim that this caricature is somehow a swipe at poor little TriG. (Stay classy, Palin.)

WV: trigityp. Holy shit.

Lou Reed works for the Obama administration?

Poor Tinshley. He must have nearly broken his wrist* forcing himself not to stick a giant, hooked nose on his Rahm caricature. The enormous velvet-paintings-of-children eyes are an interesting sublimation of that desire.

* The tragedy of this for the profits of the local bars and packies would have been insurmountable.

Remember how outraged Brewski was when Dick Cheney used the F-word on the floor of the senate?

Rahm is an embarrassment to Obama in numerous ways and he'd be better off without him, just as the GOP would be better off if Cheney and Palin shut their mouths and went away. But it won't happen. The obnoxious loud-mouths don't ever shut up or go away.

Tinsley uses every slur in the book, constantly, to describe anyone he does not like--i.e, everyone--he is, just, too much of a pathetic coward to use those slurs in his comics. Rahm Emmanuel was justified in using the term "fucking retard," because everyone in the Palin family is a fucking retard, and Tinsley's brain is a fucking subretarded pile of shit; I say those things without any satire, because they are facts! No, wait a minute, I meant to say, without satire, Tinsley is a fucking subretarded pile of shit.

This is satire, I wrote it a few posts back, after hearing David Bowie's A Space Oddity (Major Tom:)

Word Verification: Riacle, what Hell would consider a miracle, e.g, Mallard Fillmore.

This, an actual satire, shows what Tinsley thinks of the people he thinks of as retards: http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Beaner.

Word Verification: Binares, I think our brains might manipulate the potential states of electrons, just as programmers manipulate bits in binary code, in a process one might call binares. Tinsley's brain, however, must use binary, since it, only, contains two cells.

That drawing just may be the most terrifying thing I've seen in my life.

I didn't know Rahm Emanuel was a Grey.

GAH!
"Can't sleep, Rahm will eat me. Can't sleep, Rahm will eat me..."

WV: waryo, as in the Nintendo game Wary-o Kart, where you have to drive very warily lest the cops pull you over for a breath test.

Steve-O said...

This "comic" confuses me. Is Tinsley making fun of Rahm Emmanuel for saying the "R-word" or is he making fun of people who are selectively-sensitive about the "R-word" (like Sarah Palin). I doubt if he even knows.

GeoX said...

I sometimes sit back and consider the acute irony inherent in the fact that, thanks to Mooselady's transparently partisan offense-taking, many people, myself included, who would never ordinarily use the word "retard" will now feel quite free to describe her as "fucking retarded (satire)," and there's no way she could object without looking even more stupid/opportunistic (not that that's ever stopped her). Um...mission accomplished?

Frank Stone said...

Zzzzz ... zzzz-z-SNXXX-uh? Oh, did Brucie say something clever or insightful in his strip? No? Oh, OK, then ... zzzzzz ...

Kaitlyn said...

I'm with Steve-O.

Limbaugh made fun of Rahm meeting with leading disability activists, so they're mocking PC run amok.

But the word isn't okay now that a kid with Down's is associated with the GOP. Before then, it was fine!

Gag me. I hate the word no matter who uses it, but Limbaugh's voice makes me angry.

Shouldn't have read this before going to bed. That... thing, gives me the willies.
