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.

Grand Ol' Teabaggers: "Let America default! No big deal! We have to put an end to NPR! No compromise! That's for spineless weenies!"

*S&P downgrades USA*

Grand Ol' Teabaggers: "I never said ANY of that! It's totally all Obama's fault! ...Still, the only option for a REAL American is to demand higher taxes for the poor! Those damn parasites! Takers takin' away from makers!"

It's almost as if they knew that the economy would do a U-turn after the budget debacle, just to sacrifice jobs to make Obama look bad.

Anyway, I'm shocked to almost agree with this MF strip. But wasn't this weeks ago?

"...But wasn't this weeks ago?"
Referring to long-dead issues is a signature issue of Mallard Fillmore and conservatives generally.

Oh, look -- Brucie's trying to do a joke about something current. And, predictably, it's as flat as week-old soda pop.

And I think I've mentioned this before, Brucie, but filling large empty spaces with over-inflated word balloons is not the same thing as drawing.

I found a summary of the best Mallard Fillmore comics:

Word Verification: Consilo, need I say more?

This is the original comic. It is as good as Mallard Fillmore gets, yet it still somewhere between the Family Circus and Baby Blues, which is even worse, in quality, and offensive to everyone in the world. (

Hey look, Tinsley is bitching about something that was totally caused by right-wing bullshit (not that he's aware of that, of course).

Today I heard a clip on the radio at work. The DJ made a joke about Clinton. Guess what it was about! Hint: cutting edge relevance if it's 1996.
