That damned Movement

What's Mallard raving about today?

Mammals, Dinosaurs, Teabaggers.

Hmmm. That mammal seems to have some extremely inflamed testicles.

And he appears to be masturbating.

Not much of a Teabagger, really.

Except no one honestly thinks the teabaggers are a tiny grassroots movement.
They think the teabaggers are a massive dog and pony show, championed by Fox News and run by the Republican Party.

But other then that, this strip is actually pretty... well, yeah, no, it's still awful. Reaally, really awful.
Your comic is bad, and you should feel bad.

DaveyK: Hee! I'm actually scared to click on your links!

Ducky is Indeed Right, if one assumes Batshit means the perverted rodent to represent teabaggery. It's a perfectly reasonable assumption, given how the pea tarty is represented by perverts and rats in real life.

But Batshit could just as well intend for Li'l Big Balls to represent the horrible plague of Sharia Law, which thanks to teabaggers we now know is slowly taking over America WOOOOO...(.) Batshit's not competent enough to make it clear.

Still, no matter how you slice it, this "grassroots movement" was never a threat to the dinosaurs. Outside of Texas textbooks in which Jesus rides a T-Rex, it was an unrelated event that removed dinosaurs and put mammals on top. So either way this strip makes no damn sense.

Tinsley has, once again, shown the opposite of reality: Republicans are the weak creatures who love changes, and are preparing for massive advancement; Democrats are the slow, primitive creatures who deny evolution, refuse to accept modern times, and are about to be eliminated by better times.

Well, actually, now that I think about it, the metaphor works for Democrats like Obama, and Hillary Clinton who hate gays, and modern technology. Censorship is unacceptable, and refusing to support gay marriage makes us look like Puritans.

I think both are supposed to be conservatives. Tea partiers rely heavily on justifying their existence as independent, equally disgusted with both parties. They currently fancy themselves the "dignified rebels" of this generation, hence all the references to Woodstock, the need to mention how clean they are compared to hippies, and their obsession with dressing up.

But the fact is that they are all so deeply entrenched in a powerful party they pretend to rebel against that you don't have anything all that revolutionary.

The four most successful teabaggers (Angle, Miller, Paul and O'Donnell) want to force girls who have been raped by their uncles to bear the child.

Yep - according to their own statements made to "right-to-life" groups, they oppose abortion even in the case of rape and incest.

I wonder if Tinshley is really in favor of such a big-government movement?

I get it! Teabaggers are rats.

@Ducky --

Lame duck governor of NY David Paterson thinks the teabaggers are indeed a "grassroots" movement.

Then again, he has demonstrated more times than I can count that his blindness is not merely physical.
