That damned issue

What's Mallard raving about today?

Democrats

Hmmm, maybe Republicans are a wholly owned and operated subsidiary of BP?

Or maybe Republicans hat America and are happy for the economy to fail in the hope that it benefits them at the ballot box?

I VAGUELY REMEMBER WHEN CALIFORNIA BANNED TRANSFATS SO WHAT IF DEMOCRATS ACCUSED THEIR OPPONENTS OF BEING MADE OF TRANSFATS BECAUSE DEMOCRATS WANT TO CONTROL WHAT YOU CAN EAT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS HA HA AMIRITE?

Seriously, Tinsley, are you fucking retarded (satire)? Because I can't come up with another explanation for this.

I nominate Republican Governors choose NOT to use National Guard to fight the Gulf Oil Disaster as the biggest political gift of the year.

But who knows if the Dems will use it?

Winning issue? Geez, Batshit, have you forgotten how badly the GOP got its ass drubbed last time? And look at your candidates now! They're insane! And their racism and contempt for the working class has never been so open.

...Oh, right, I forgot. You operate on a completely different set of rules than the real world.

It's essential for him to keep the fantasy alive here. It's like "Peter Pan" has been over for days, and Tinkerbelle's rotting corpse has been given a proper burial, and he's there saying "Clap harder, you bastards! This can still work!"

I love that Mallard is sitting there on his ass, lovingly cradling his box of Extra-Salty Artery Plugs (Ranch-Flavored) while this ad is playing. It's the kind of subtle nuance that can only be explained, in this context, by just plain coincidence. Certainly can't be talent or sobriety.

With the crazies the TPers have nominated this year, the D's can win with a campaign like this.

The other comments here have already successfully addressed the conceptual failure of this strip, so I'll just address the artistic failure, i.e., the missing details on Mallard's right side, particularly the indistinct shape next to his right hand:

A talented artist can leave out certain details of an object in such a way that the viewer's eye can "fill in" the missing details, and thus interpret the object as the artist intended.

A talented artist can do that.

As everyone knows, Republican candidates aren't made of trans fats. They're made of bullshit, oil, and corporate lickspittle.

There was an actual kernel of a joke in here. Good job.

Too bad the setup requires one to accept as fact the fiction that liberals everywhere are in big trubs this November, because Real America is pissed off and is going to do something about it other than stand on the side of the road with some picket signs for a couple of hours before going home and cranking the A/C instead because it's too hot out today.
