That damned Imagination

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, Americans

Melty-face President Obama is wrong. If you want things to get better you have to rout the crazies out of power.

Those damned Ratings

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, The Media

You know, Mallard, even if I were to accept your blatant lie that the Media have been in any way silent about President Obama's approval ratings, this is pretty ironic criticism for someone who never once mentioned President Bush's approval ratings (which were half of what President Obama's are).

That damned Affront

What's Mallard raving about today?


Dude is watching Fox...although not on any sort of television I've ever seen.

That damned Bond Rating

What's Mallard raving about today?

Incumbents, the Debt Ceiling

Hey Mallard? Remember when you were talking about how terrible it was that the actions of Congress caused S&P to downgrade the US Debt rating? Just yesterday?

So, what do you imagine would have happened to our rating if the US had defaulted on our debt?

You can't have it both ways.

But, thanks for illustrating the largest part of the reason why S&P downgraded us, because a group of ignoramuses is dominating our political process.

That damned Downgrade

What's Mallard raving about today?


Hey Mallard, I know that's the Right Wing Talking point, but if you'd actually read their reasoning you'd have noticed the part in there where they say the fact that Republicans were willing to consider default was a major part of the reason for the downgrade.

Also, let's not forget this is the same agency that was giving CDOs AAA ratings right up to the very end.

So, you know, fuck off.

That damned Weather

What's Mallard raving about today?

Weather, Global Warming.

Has Mallard stopped watching Fox? Because on Fox, winter storms were proof that Global Warning is not occurring while the summer heat waves indicated nothing at all.

Meanwhile in the reality-based world, where people pay attention to things like Science and Facts, both summer and winter were indications of Climate change brought about, largely, by human activity.

That damned Year

What's Mallard raving about today?

Arab Spring

Wow, even when not being an utter ass hat, Mallard's timing is just lousy.

Those damned Fries

What's Mallard raving about today?

The FDA, Fast Food.

The rate of smoking in the United States has decreased from 42.4% (in 1965) to 20.8% (in 2007).

Mallard Fillmore longs for those halcyon days when almost half the population was giving themselves cancer.

Those damned Comics

What's Mallard raving about today?

Comics, Education

Pick your snark today:

  • "Questions about realism from a strip about a newscaster duck?"
  • "Reality and Mallard Fillmore? Never met."
  • "The solution? Step 1. De-fund schools. Step 2. Give the money to the wealthy and corporations. Step 3. Step 4. Better Schools!"

That damned Commission

What's Mallard raving about today?

The Budget-Cutting Super Friends Committee

Congratulations, Washington, on coming up with a solution that literally no one likes and literally no one thinks will actually work.

We promise, however, we'll try to act shocked when the Republicans hold everyone hostage again and when Democrats utterly capitulate again.

That damned Option

What's Mallard raving about today?

Technical Support

If you didn't vote Republican Perhaps all those job creators they shower tax breaks on would staff call centers with Americans, rather than low-wage foreign workers in other countries.

The fact that you're a technical illiterate is your own fault.

That damned Sign

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama

That's right, because President Obama is the obstructionist preventing any and all change (except that which benefits the Koch brothers).

That damned Veneer

What's Mallard raving about today?

Politics, compromise.

Mallard is confusing me. I sure hope he's not complaining about Republicans compromising, cause that would indicate he's suffering from delusions.

That damned Hatred

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, Employers.

I defy you to name one concrete example of an Obama policy that is not business-friendly.

I'll wait...

That damned Belief

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, Debt.

Given that Mallard Fillmore did not say anything while the debt was being run up, he has no standing to criticize now.

Getting up on my soapbox for a bit here, this has never been about debt or Government Spending. If so, the national conversation would have started when the debt started piling up and not on January 20, 2009.

This is and always has been about who benefits from Government Spending and now that a Democrat is in office, Republicans worry that Government Spending might not benefit the right people (them and their direct financial contributors) at which point it has to be shut down.

I'm going to say it right now: when the Super Commission fails at its work, the spending cut triggers kick in, and the GOP introduce a Bill to restore Defense Spending (because, don't you support the Troops?)...anyone who does not immediately and without qualification denounce them and their actions is never allowed to speak about deficit spending ever again. Because you don't get to care about it, but only until it affects one of your sacred cows. Because then you're just a hypocrite.

That damned Prince

What's Mallard raving about today?


Mallard Fillmore is admitting he's an Anarchist.

Why do you hate the Founding Fathers, Mallard?

That damned Show

What's Mallard raving about today?

Dave Ramsey, Uncle Sam

Well, our problem is now obvious. Uncle Sam is eating money rather than spending it.

For the record...I had to look up Dave Ramsey to find out that he's some sort of syndicated Financial guru who emphasizes debt reduction. Because personal household finances and the finances of the United States Government are exactly the same.

That damned Toilet

What's Mallard raving about today?

Toilet Seats, Feminism

Seriously? You're equating toilet seat etiquette with gender equality?

Plus, you're saying you're a man who cares where the toilet seat is left. In other words, you're admitting you're a petty douche bag.

Which comes as a real shock to me, I can tell you.

That damned Tactic

What's Mallard raving about today?

Scare Tactics, President Obama, Social Security

One day after scaring people about Social Security...this?

Seriously, I think Mallard is becoming schizophrenic.

That damned Gold

What's Mallard raving about today?


Yeah, well, stop watching Glenn Beck, then.

The irony here is that Mallard favors the party representing never-ending tax cuts to the wealthiest people in America and cuts to programs for the Poor and Middle Class.

And sees no contradiction between any of this.

Those damned People

What's Mallard raving about today?

Taxes, President Obama

Usually we only see this bit of faux outrage around Tax day. Here Mallard turns it into something of purest boredom.

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

That damned Shock

What's Mallard raving about today?

Casey Anthony, The Economy.

How long until President Obama's rogue teleprompter shows up in this Casey Anthony sequence?

Monday, August 01, 2011

That damned Career

What's Mallard raving about today?

Casey Anthony

I want to remind you that this is the same Mallard Fillmore who was recently saying that minorities do worse in school because they watch too much television.
