That damned Fault

What's Mallard raving about today?

Maxine Waters, Charlie Rangel.

Actual difference?

Democrats are not lining up to protect either Waters or Rangel.

Compare that to Republican reaction to ethics problems with Mark Craig (Mallard's take: it was the Democrats' fault). David Foley (never mentioned once), David Vitter, John Ensign, Duke Cunningham...

Obviously this can mean only one thing...

...that Democrats put their own on trial when they violate ethics?

Now where would Ducky get the idea that Fox News has a special thing for reporting on the bad behavior of black people?

Well, Davey, unfortunately some of them actually are.

And then they wonder why the generic Rethuglican is beating the generic Democrat in current polling.

The Rethugs are evil, the Dems are spineless. Is this a great country or what?

Oh, and Mallard is STILL an idiot.

Thank you, syndicate colorist! Tinshley must be standing on his dining room table right now, cutting himself with a broken bottle (emptied beforehand, of course), then smearing the wounds with peanut butter, howling "WHY DO THEY KEEP MAKING MY N*GG*RS WHITE? DON'T THEY REALIZE THAT IF THEY'RE WHITE IT MEANS I'M RACIST?"

I can't deny that the D Party is screwed up and corrupt -- but it's impossible to criticize them without criticizing the Republicans just as much, if not more. Unless you're an intellectually dishonest partisan hack, that is.

I'll give credit where it's due: this is one of the few caricatures on Mallard Fillmore I could actually recognize without needing the name tag that's usually drawn next to them. Low level of difficulty, though; just draw a permanent frown, like Nicholson's Joker but in reverse. She frowns even when smiling.

Yes, it is Fox News's fault, because the Republicans were entirely responsible for their problems. Democrat voted almost unanimously to prevent the creation of the Office of Congressional Ethics, which, lead by the Republican House leader, has filed 44 claims against 13 politicians. Why, thanks to those nasty Democrats, the politicians almost voted against the office! Democrats are the minority party, right? (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0810/41121.html)

Notice the giant lips on Waters: Tinsley must have been further enraged when the colorist made those red, rather than white.

Anyone remember what Mallard Fillmore had Mallard Fillmore wearing a shirt, complaining that television is nothing but pornographic bullshit in the first panel, and in the second, the colorist made the shirt feather-colored? I love this colorist, he is great, and should switch places with Tinsley, ideally, if he is burning in Hell.

Word Verification: Nowlega, lega is the murder of billions of innocent men, and Tinsley wants lega, now.

It's being investigated, right? So they can find out if there's anything to the charges? And we'll know they didn't if the topic disappears forever from the strip, never to be mentioned again, except as the generalized miasma of seeming corruption that Fox loves to refer to, often using charges that never came to anything to support their contention of wrongdoing.
