Those damned Predictions

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, Wikileaks, Democrats, Republicans.

When the Republican Base stop acting like complete fucking loons, we can fix that last one. Until then, well...if the shoe fits.

Pft--let's not pretend that Tinsley actually has a point. Teh librul media wouldn't dream of calling deranged lunatics who bring guns to health care rallies "nuts."

Wait, is this the same media that kept referring to protesters against the Iraq invasion as "radicals" while calling the pro-invasion crowds "patriotic?"

Ah, but will Wikileaks blow the lid off the conspiracy that robbed the graceful and charming Palin offspring of a deserved and Almighty-mandated victory on "So You Think You Can Dance?" (It's a bigger crime than the Holocaust! Just ask Sarah!)

Seriously, exactly what revelations by Wikileaks to date are we supposed to be outraged by, Bats? (Especially in comparison to the outing of Valerie Plame?) Most of the revelations only serve to confirm what we've suspected for years. I would think that the ability of one man to "speak truth to power" despite the risk to his own life would have your utterly worthless blessing.

I predict that Batshit will not tire of duck crotch in 2011. But credit where it's due: this shows a lot more effort than the last several Sunday Fillmores.

"Uh...um...gotta nail Obama...uh...come on, he'll drop you off the top spot on his enemies list if you don't come up with some--HE STINKS! Yes! I'm a genius!!"

"Left wing of the Democratic Party?" I laud Batshit's refraining from using "Dems" or "Democrat," but it's okay to say "Progressives;" they're not everyone's cup of tea.

...Oh, but then you'd have to name the "right wing of the Republican Party," and in spite of all the ridiculous rebranding they've gone through in the past few years, the rest of America still detests neocons. And they ARE nuts, as they're only too happy to demonstrate on a daily basis.

Hang on tight to that limb, Mallard. It's none too sturdy, and you've got a long way to fall.

I have no worries at all that Obama will handily win against which ever Crazyeyes McGee the Republicans dig up to run in 2012.
He's not the best president ever, but he beats the fuck outa the alternative.

Blah blah weak Joe Biden joke, whine whine whine persecution complex. Yup, it's another Sunday in Mallardland.

The Democratic Left can't be the base, because that would make the Republican Right the acid. And that's the classic fallacy of mistaking the container for the thing contained. Or, as in this case, obviously tripping balls on.

And with that incoherent wall of text,The duck covers all of his talking points for this year, Now he can spend more of his free time slouched by the TV moaning about how other people are doing the same thing.

I think this "comic" falls flat on its face when you realize that in today's political climate Nixon would've been considered left-wing.

Also, it falls flat on its face for being unfunny, badly-drawn, and irrelevent.

I can almost handle the delay when it's something "topical" but he had to look at a calendar in December and realize this would run on the THIRD Sunday in January, when most of us have forgotten our resolutions or if we'd even made them.

But then again, getting that BCS whine in before the championship game was important. It's not like comics run on Mondays.

People who think Obama wasn't born in the USA, who think every reputable scientist is wrong on global warming, and who are pretty sure Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11 ... really are crazy.

But it's not the media that is calling the right wing of the Republican Party crazy; to the contrary, the media tries to be "balanced" by solemnly considering whether rightwing claims that the Earth is flat might, after all, be just as true as the claims of "elitists" that it is round.

No, what's calling them crazy is reality itself ... a stranger to Bruce Tinsley.

Is it wrong that I'm a little bit impressed with the work ethic exhibited in this one?

As far as I'm aware, that drawing of the duck hanging by his arms from a tree branch (um, don't birds have wings?) is not recycled from an earlier strip, and the creator took advantage of the Sunday-strip format to give us THREE terrible non-jokes, instead of just one.

Come on, loosen up! I did have to laugh at Biden winning Dancing With the Stars. I can see that happening; I hope he's paired with a Palin!
