That damned memory

What's Mallard raving about today?

Congress, Speaker Pelosi, November.

At first I thought the guy holding the "Never Forget" sign had wandered into the wrong rally. But then I realized that Teabaggers probably do have difficulty remembering Election Day.

Once you realize that, the remainder of the signs start to make more sense as well. This is not a rally of outrage, but a rally to remind them when to go to the polls.

"Remember November," eh? So...Republicans are MPs and Democrats are Guy Fawkes? Sure, okay. If the Gunpowder Plot had succeeded and the government had had to stage some sort of counterattack. And if Fawkes hadn't been a reactionary right-winger. And if Tinsley didn't appear to be suggesting that republicans are in fact Fawkes, inasmuch as they're gunna take out the ruling party. But aside from its complete and utter incoherence, the metaphor works wonderfully.

Tinsley, you suck at metaphors, history, cartooning, and life.

Also, it's terribly amusing when guys like Tinsley who are all "oh the tea party? Totally not partisan! Just concerned Americans sick of politics-as-usual blahdyblahblah" basically admits: we want to elect republicans. So we can do more business-as-usual, but OUR way. Such inspiring commitment to principle.

The next panel:

We should rethink it because every time a Democrat gets democratically elected, there's a minority screaming about tyranny. We really ought to just let them try running the government all themselves one day while the rest of the nation sneaks off on vacation. Hide the nukes first.

We can come back after they all tear each other apart with no "libs" around to demonize.

Yes, Ducky. The eeeeeeevil America hating LIEbruls are thinking about overthrowing the government, because a few thousand pissed off rednecks want to vote them out of office. This is a fact. And not at all made-up bullshit.

Yawn. Look, if you're not even going to try, this isn't any fun.

It's pretty clear that Tin Eye thinks that teabaggers are pretty much interchangeable with "pluggers" from the daily panel of the same name: impoverished anthropomorphic animals on a lower tier of existence, looking at anything modern with an earnest uncomprehending look of hopelessness as they shuffle unsteadily toward their unmarked grave.

A rally full of anti-Obama signs would be described as "How a 'bagger remembers who's President."

Tinsley: Sociopath said...

No, the Republicans are Guy Fawkes: Sociopath murderers trying to turn an incompetent-but-functional government into an oligarchy with no civil rights, technology, or social advancements.

I have to post this fucking cartoon: it is so offensive, anachronistic, and inaccurate on so many levels that everyone should hate it. (

Word Verification: Endis, the end of the world is when one of Tinsley's ideas becomes reality.

Tinsley: Sociopath said...

Note: Tinsley thinks Pluggers are the ideal, and anyone who differs from them should be tortured, and killed.

If GOP ideas were really popular, they wouldn't need a flood of corporate dollars to support them.

Steve-O said...

Most people think the Teabagger Party is a grassroots movement triggered by disgust with both parties. Actually the Teabagger Party was created by corporate America because the Republican brand was so damaged by George Bush the Dumber that it needed to be renamed. "Republican" and "Teabagger" are interchangeable terms no matter what some dumbass Fox News viewing sheep wants to think. It's more of a symptom of a dumbed down society than a political system gone awry.

Oh, I totally agree, floating sign: never forget.

Oh man, the people who live in that enormous citrus juicer are going to get totally Novembered!
