Those damned Americans

What's Mallard raving about today?

Arizona, Americans, President Obama.

Because if history teaches us anything, it's that something or someone supported by a majority of a population can't possibly be wrong.

Yeah, the idea of racist fuckassery being acceptable due to popular support is as risible as you'd expect from Tinsley, but before THAT even becomes relevant, I'd bloody well like to SEE this alleged poll. We don't even get the usual half-assed "*Fox News" this time.

Add "democracy" and "majority rule" to the list of topics that Batshit has no business lecturing anyone on. He has nothing but contempt for either one whenever they don't go his way, but that's no surprise to readers.

How do you know Obama is extra evil today? Why, he's even SMOKING!

Ducky is Right said...

Yeah, I don't get the point of the cigarette. Wouldn't that make conservatives like him? Cause he doesn't give in to all that namby-pamby nanny state liberal anti-smoking crap?

Why, it's almost as if the Founders expressly stated that they want a strong centralized government to intervene PRECISELY BECAUSE popular opinion is sometimes fucking stupid.

Say now, if we want to take the approach of direct democracy and immunity from criticism based solely on percentages, anyone wanna google up how badly Obama destroyed McCain in 2008?

@FHMC
You'd have a hard time getting 70% of Americans to agree that pizza is delicious. I don't buy that crap for a second.

This is where the little asterisk and citation would help.

I find 39%, I find 59%, but I'm having issues finding 69%. What is it from, the study of "stuff I pulled out my butt?"

And none of these surveys have context. Like asking what percentage of Americans carry around proof of legal status (hint: white skin or a driver's license is not sufficient). Or can list what amendments this can violate.

WTF is this guy's problem?

Tinsley might do well to remember that:

1. The federal government is NOT a democracy, but rather a republic;

2. If the majority is always right, then we made the right choice when we elected Obama in 2008.

wavydavy said...

It's been noted already, but I must add to the chorus of those wondering why the "majority is always right" doesn't apply to the 2008 election. Then again, consistency and logic have never been Tinkley's strong suit, but hypocrisy certainly has.

Unable to extend the penis-chin any further without breaking the confines of the panel, Tinshley chooses a separate route for his unintentionally revealing phallic fascination with Obama: the clenched, erect cigarette.

Anyway, if Obama-is-a-seekrit-smoker is now on the table, then I will no longer feel the slightest twinge of guilt when bringing up Bruce Tinshley's rampant alcoholism, including repeated arrests for DWI. Not that I really did before, but still.

rewinn said...

I for one salute Tinshley's drawing Obama with a cigarette, since it'll help Obama with a problematic demographic.

And it's kinda interesting that Obama's being attacked for doing something that can have no political advantage to him. It's almost as if he's standing on a principle ... do we really want that?

Frank Stone said...

My guess would be that Brucie drew Obama smoking in order to make him look more like a Chicago Thug -- even though the proper shorthand for a mobster is a big cigar and a garish diamond ring. Preferably with a pinstripe suit.

And Rootbeer: C'mon -- everyone knows ACORN stole the election for Obama. Glenn Beck or somebody said so.

I found the poll he's referencing! He just typed the first line wrong. It really says "Americans with 69% brain damage support ethnic cleansing."

Why is that cons so hate immigrants, yet won't do the one thing that would end illegal immigration overnight? Not a fence patrolled by armed rednecks, but heavy fines and jail terms for businesses that knowingly hire them. They only come here for the jobs, so if you get rid of the jobs, they won't come. Why, it's as if the entire economy was secretly built on paying certain people sustenance wages in order to increase profits! Yeah, I know. That's crazy talk.
