That damned Leader

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, Toughness.

Having been saddled with two wars, Mallard Fillmore simply can't believe President Obama hasn't yet found time to invade a third, possible even a fourth country. Because that would have been awesome!

But don't you dare spend any money to help the unemployed!

As was pointed out in the comments to yesterday's strip, Mallard Fillmore has been completely reduced to a Wrong-Wing troll effort (or a "Beck U," if you like). That's fine; it only confirms the strip's irrelevance for anything but our mocking fodder.

Here, Batshit plays the "states' rights" game to defend Arizona's preposterous bid to validate racial profiling--a personal favorite issue of Batshit's--in spite of the fact that even FOX & Friends' own legal expert describes it as "un-American" and "unconstitutional."

But Batshit's not racist or anything!
...Just un-American.

Ow. My brain.

I think what bugs me most is that Ducky appears to be worried about "looking tough" in the eyes of countries who spend in a year on defense, what we spend in a week.

Also, stopping states from enacting laws that violate basic tenants of the US Constitution is one of the Federal government's jobs. It is not unreasonable when they do so.

God, you're dumb.

It figures that the same people who scream that the president is not upholding the constitution gets upset if he takes any steps to uphold the constitution.

But then, they're the ones who believe that saying something makes it true. So saying that Arizona is not violating both powers reserved for the federal government as well as not possibly violating the rights of any American citizens makes it true.

The saddest part is that the people Obama is sending in troop-wise into Arizona are there to guard their precious border that they claim murderers, rapists, and drug lords are immigrating across to come cut grass and mind the children.

Silly liberals. Everyone knows you can't look like a tough leader unless you dress in a flightsuit with a comically pronounced codpiece and pretend to land on an aircraft carrier! Oh, and "clear brush."

Anyway, I'm not sure why we're hearing lectures on military toughness from someone whose closest exposure to men in uniform came when they were forcing him to take a Breathalyzer test.

If the reichwing wants to keep emphasizing its attacks on one of America's fastest growing demographics, I say let 'm!

(Meanwhile, even the WSJ says Crime is falling, even in Arizona, without the "papers please!" law.)

Do the people saying "kick 'em all out" or "why don't they do it legally?" understand how HARD it is? How EXPENSIVE it is?

Like this one guy on 30 Days - his dad immigrated from Cuba (asylum) so he's legal. But the illegal family he's staying with - well, he felt sorry for the kids not born there, but they need to go back!

"Saddled" with two wars? He's riding those horses hard, at least as hard as Boy Bush ever did, and toying with more saddles and more horses. Pakistan and Iran, for start with.
