That damned Work

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, The Middle East.

Over the next week, watch as Mallard morphs with the Glenn Beck approved talking points from "President Obama is not doing anything" to "ZOMG, Muslims are taking over!"

Aw, I was late to watching Skip get schooled (yesterday's thread). See, Skip, that's what happens when you blindly regurgitate the horseshit the wrong wing feeds you: the grown-ups will spank you.

Today's strip: Batshit decides to mix things up a little by giving us yet another "Obama looks at us and thinks" strip instead of yet another "Mallard splays his groin at the TV" strip. Gold star sticker and first pick from the toy box for Batshit! (For his "self-esteam," don't you know.)

The wrong wing media's golden rule: If Obama does nothing, it is bad; if Obama does something, it is bad.

Ahhh, another of Tinsley's "Out of My Ass" collection. Tres Magnafic.

Yes, MF is attacking Obama for not magically fixing the turbulence in the middle east. Which, we all remember, was a bastion of peace and prosperity under every Republican presidency.
Why does Bruce have a job, again?

ajm said...

Right. The Middle East was 2000 years of nothing but peace and love until Obama took office.

It's funny because he gots a pointy chin, man! And look, he's sayin something too!!

(Skip doesn't care if he gets schooled or not. He still gets that fifty cents a post.)

Well, For one, We didn't use this incident as an excuse to invade an unrelated country looking for WMD, Therefore Obama should be tarred and feathered.

Tinshley's brain: Hey, I know. I'll draw a cartoon accusing a black man of being lazy! That's not at all problematic or offensive, and I like scotch, and I think I'll have some more scotch, and oops all the scotch is gone. Better get drawing!

More Arabs were freed from a dictator this past month than in eight years of Bush's wars. And fewer people died.

The least important part of this is that it enrages Tinshley.

He hasn't dropped a single bomb. How lazy!

And of course the previous occupant of the White House was Work Ethic Personified.

Randy said...

I was rather amused to see today's "cartoon" so soon after I referred to Bush's "it's hard work" quip the other day.

Frank Stone said...

Aww, look -- Brucie's trying out a new joke: "Obama's lazy! Hur-hur!" Unfortunately for him, Obama's been "doing foreign-policy stuff" since he took office.

Meanwhile, let's review the previous president's relationship with work:

• Number Of Visits To Camp David: 149, totaling all or part of 487 days.
• Number Of Visits To His Texas Ranch: 77, totaling all or part of 490 days.
• Number Of Visits To His Parents’ Home In Kennebunkport, Maine: 11, totaling all or part of 43 days.*

(And that's how you cite a source using a footnote, Brucie.)

I have a headache so maybe my brain just won't try to understand this. Help?

But make sure you explain it so a college student can understand it!

Note to Tinsley:

Iraq: Bush invaded to overthrow a secular dictator not aligned with any terrorist organizations (Osama called him "The Great Infidel"). While he wasn't a nice guy, he wasn't a threat to us. He is in the process of being replaced with a Shiite majority closely aligned with Iran (and you can bet supporters of multiple terrorist organizatiions).

So in closing: Fuck you Bruce Tinsley.

Rootbeer said...

So Obama HAS been doing domestic-policy stuff?

That's probably bad. He probably just makes things worse for us.

If he did foreign-policy stuff, that would probably make things worse for people too. Because he's bad at doing stuff.

Therefore it is good that he's not doing foreign-policy stuff, right?

WRONG. Because making things bad for foreigners is good. Some of them are Muslims and might take away each others' freedom, therefore they shouldn't have freedom.

"He hasn't dropped a single bomb"?????? WTF? Well, not on Egypt yet, but ever hear of Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq, and Iran, where he is continuing the Bush bombing of wedding parties, etc?
