That damned Newt

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama, Newt Gingrich

Is that the same Newt Gingrich who has slipped behind Ron Paul in Republican polls?

Happy Festivus, everyone!

"Expertise" in what, exactly? Switching out wives?

Poor Batshit. The two-week lag's just trolling his ass now.

"Expertise" is apparently the latest code word for "lobbying experience." Or possibly "humongous credit lines at Tiffany." Or "nation-crippling airplane hissy fits."

Tinshley, meanwhile, is miserable because the cops and their breathalyzers are out in force this time of year.

Obama wants some of that 'expertise' stuff Newt keeps throwing around. I'm pleasantly surprised to see a joke about gardening in this strip.

Expertise in pulling "facts" out of one's hinder?

CW in LA said...

Clearly, expertise at running his big, fat, gigantic mouth and coming up with wonderful, awful ideas like firing janitors and replacing them with small children. You know Brews was sporting wood over that one.

Thanks Bruce for proving Prof. Krugman right!

Well, if by "throwing around" you mean "blowing smoke about while patting himself on the back", then OK, I guess.

Meanwhile, Brucie, maybe you should hurry over to the nearest shopping mall so you can ask Santa for some of that "talent" that almost every other cartoonist on the comics page has been throwing around...*

*Yeah, I know, talent in newspaper strips is a relative thing; different tastes and whatnot. But this is "Mallard Fillmore" we're talking about.

Naw, Frank, that's completely fair: Tinsh can only wish to have a fraction of the ability of whoever's churning out Blondie or Beetle Bailey these days, never even mind a comic strip that anyone regards as being, in any sense, good.

As he prepares to dig into his Christmas feast of Night Train and stale pork rinds, I hope Tinsley remembers to give a heartfelt thanks for Wingnut Welfare.

Newt should ask bin Ladn or Gadaffi whether Obama's got "expertise" in foreign affairs.
