That damned Vacation

What's Mallard raving about today?

I have no idea, but have your own fun in the comments.

That's right. Absolutely everything ceased to be George W. Bush's fault after January 20, 2009. And, thankfully, nobody who makes these claims also thinks that Bill Clinton caused 9/11.

Because that would be silly.

I think Brucie's doing this just to make his "racism's dead because I say it is and anyone who disagrees is racist" nonsense look slightly less asinine by comparison.

This strip would only make sense as satire if the previous administration hadn't handed out a no-bid contract to the vice-president's buddies to dig the pit, fill it with tar, and herd the dinosaurs into it.

Seriously, Bruce, have your head examined. It might lead to a major discovery: the first proven case of a negative I.Q. (Dan Quayle wouldn't stop kicking in his car seat so doctors gave up).

Every time a reichwinger says "Obama is just blaming the previous administration" ... I was gonna say "a demon gets its wings" ... but actually I hope they keep up this line of attack.

Let's keep reminding all Americans who turned America into a nation that tortures prisoners! who ignored bin Ladn and invaded Iraq!

And while we're at it, let's note that our troop levels in Iraq are below 100,000 since the 1st time since Bush's illegal and stupid invasion.

Hey Brewsky! What was the name of the guy who put us in this mess? George something? Remind us eh?

P.S. another lazy, single-panel Sunday strip by the Lazying "Man" in Cartooning!

As they say in the comments of Shorter $wingnut posts over at S,N!, "Why did I get out of the boat? I don't even like mangoes."

I'd rather blame the previous administration and move forward with solutions than blame the current one and do nothing.

My god, does Tinsley even understand the concept of metaphor?

Why should we blame the previous administration?

They only opposed every effort to put guard rails around the tar pit, or to put up a sign, or to educate the public about tar pit safety. And they insisted on allowing the developers who wanted to put a housing development around them to put the childrens' playground next to the tar pits, and gave them a special exemption from having to put a fence between the slides and the pits.

Also, their media mocked the 'nanny state' for presuming that any type of safety restraint might be necessary, because anyone who blunders into the tar pits -- surrounded as they are by concealing vegetation that the previous administration refused to remove -- is simply inferior and deserves what they get.

Clearly, it's the fault of the new administration, unless it's the fault of the administration before last. But the previous administration? Pffffft.

Kip W said...

Johaely, I'd say it's pretty clear that Tin believes "metaphor" is a kind of dinosaur.

He also believes that cavemen not only coexisted with dinosaurs, but that they were dinosaurs.

Quick! Pretend the previous 8 years never happened!
Obviously, everything that's going on in the world only started on January 21st, 2009. Everything until then was fine. Better then fine. Excellent!

But seriously, this thinking pisses me off. Does no one else see any problem with creating precedent that you can do anything you want, so long as no one calls you on it until you leave office?

exanonymous said...

One point:
'A' tarpit?

I seem to recall the previous administration actively seeking another one to play around.

In fact, when that administration came in, I remember thinking "Oh, we'll be at the Qari Tarpits again, that family keeps trying to cross it.

And what do you know, there we all were.

If I ever happened upon two zombie dinsaurs like those with pupil-less demon eyes I'd pray to god they stumbled into a tarpit and died!

Iron Dragon said...

My issue with the comment is more that it seems a bit strange. Yes, some of it is the fault of a previous administration, some of it is more arguable. That being said, when a lot of the right wingers start spouting things like "There was never a terrorist attack under the Bush Administration." or that Obama somehow caused the recession before he was elected...

Rootbeer said...

Would I be giving the author too much credit in assuming that the phrase "tar pit" is a reference (or at least, a clang-association) to the TARP program?

You know, that thing that Conservatives hate that really was enacted by the previous administration, well before Barack Obama even won the 2008 election?

I'll leave it to you to figure out the allegorical meaning of the speech bubble coming out of the dinosaur's belly rather than his mouth.
