That damned Candidate

What's Mallard raving about today?

Mitt Romney, GOP Candidates

What they mean by "presidential" is that by contrast to the other GOP candidates, he's not bat-shit insane.

What they mean by "flip-flopper" is that he is now doing his best to appear as bat-shit insane as the rest of the GOP candidates, because that's what Republican voters like you want.

What any of this has to do with President Obama is something known only to Mallard, of course.

One can guess that he thinks it's automatically hilarious to insinuate a pejorative about President Obama, regardless of whether there's anything truthful (or funny) about it. For this reason, no one ever describes Mallard Fillmore as "funny".

It's funny because crooked lettering, sloppy panel borders, google eyes, sailboat ears, dick chin. And I say that because this is Don't-Distinguish-between-Intentions-and-Results" Day.

Today's "comic" shows Obama being surprised at the concept that flipflopping is considered Presidential.

It's complementing Obama!

Was this on purpose or merely sloppy?

Remember, conservabots! In 2012, Bruce Tinshley wants you all to vote for Obama instead of Mittens! Spread the word at your klavern meetings and militia camps!

I remember another Massachusetts politician who won his party's nomination on the basis of seeming "presidential," in spite of running a tepid campaign and looking like a Frankenstein monster. He was accused of being a "flip-flopper", too.

I think his name was Joe something.

I guess this is hilarious to the group of people who think that 'Noun + Care = viable argument'.

Oddly enough, Batshit doesn't "asterisk" this "poll." Is it Rasmussen?

That makes this funny to me is the thought of fourteen neocons (AKA The Mallard Fillmore Fanbase) writing nasty letters to Batshit, enraged that he's "flip-flopped" on Obama.

Because as Rewinn's pointed out, this is about as pro-Obama as you could possibly expect from Batshit.

Just wait for another week and half when Brucie gets to White Knight for Michelle Bachmann. I can hardly contain my excitement.

And no Bruce, Michelle's not going to have sex with you.
