That damned Santa

What's Mallard raving about today?

Congress, Santa, The Economy.

Four days ago, Mallard ranted about how commercialization of "the Holidays" was destroying our connection to the Christian aspects of Christmas.

Then for the next three days, Mallard employed Santa Claus, a symbol of both commercialization and secularization of Christmas, as a foil for his petty rants.

I don't know how Mallard can stand being in his own head.

Denial and booze.

Haha! It's funny because Democrats lost jobs, which is the best ever! The economy will surely improve now with the GOP at the helm! We'll all get our paycheck bonus from Iraq finally, isn't that exciting?!?!! Also booze.

Santa Claus is a hulking behemoth. Goddamn, the congressman would be lucky if he didn't get the shit beat out of him with those green mittens.

Were that Congressman a businessman, Tinsley would be defending him, and saying that anyone who opposed him was a Nazi Communist.

You got your pitchforks ready, right folks? Time's a-comin'.

P.S. another one-panel, lazily drawn Sunday. It's a cinch this isn't getting printed in many actual newspapers anymore

I don't know that, either -- but you have to admit there must be lots and lots of room, given that his head is otherwise empty.
