That damned Walmart

What's Mallard raving about today?

Himself, Walmart, The Media

Not content to simply get his job back, Mallard must milk his delusions of grandeur for several days. Remember: a grand total of 14 people want Mallard back.

It appears Tinsley's "research" was limited to a single aisle for ten minutes. (Does Walmart sell alcohol?)

Because I'm pretty sure more than fourteen people shop at Walmart, given how a single outlet can wipe out so many Mom-and-Pop businesses in the same area. But hey, if that's the standard Tinsley wants to attach himself to...

LOLOLOLOL ELITEST LIBRALS DONT SHOP AT CORPRAT MEDEOCCRITY BOX STORS!!!!

Lemme just start with a few things here:
A) Dedicated walmart customers? Probably not the target demographic for TV news.
B) Why does their opinion carry more weight or validity then people who don't shop at walmart, anyways? Now who's being elitist?
C) I distinctly recall any number of strips where Tins bitches about how much walmarts, or at least walmart-type stores, are horrible places. But now he likes them? Boy, I sure love a bowl of cherries!

I can only imagine him responding with this

I think we may be able to prove Tinsley was one of the "Clients From Hell." After all, we only have to establish the "Client" part.

Evidence #2:

“So you want a cross between a sexy woman and a fat, yellow duck?”

Is it Smoking Gun yet?

He relies on the fact that the people who would notice these flips are not likely to save copies of the strips as evidence. (Admittedly, the mentality it takes to save copies of Mallard Fillmore is more likely to save something with more positive emotions attached to it, such as jars of the collector's own urine.) His target audience remembers only what the Noise Machine approves of them remembering.

"You must learn to value the input of people who shop at Wal-Mart. They're the heartland of America: people who went through public school, if you know what I mean!

Mallard is like cheap plastic crap made in Chinese sweatshops and owned by billionaires who repeatedly flaunt the labor laws, got it.

WV: harbil; "My cat coughs up better things in her harbils than Tinsley does in his pathetic strip."

Haw! Dumb ol' liberal elitist, not knowin' what Walmart is! He/she is obviously not a REAL Amurrican!

Wal-Mart presents a real problem for Tinsley: on the one hand, he REALLY wants to attack it, because, as we all know, if there's one thing he fucking HATES, it's regular Americans who need a break not a lecture. But on the other hand...libruls don't like Wal-Mart either, thus giving him a golden opportunity to attack them for being elitist and out-of-touch. What's an unprincipled, drunken hack to do?

There was a strip from near the beginning of this blog in which he tried to have it both ways, with hilariously incoherent results. Alas, it doesn't seem to be online anymore, but you can see my retexted version here.

The "liberals hate ordinary Americans" schtick might have worked a whole lot better before the GOP launched its spring offensive in Wisconsin, Michigan etc.

They have about a year to do as much damage as they can (somewhat less in Wisconsin, where recall efforts are about to flip the legislature) but they can do an aweful lot of damage in that time. Their hope is to stop ordinary people from voting so they can solidify gains in 2012 and ... who knows? ... it might work.
