That damned Vacation

What's Mallard raving about today?

No idea, but I am sure it's a lightning rod for controversy.

Yes, because the president is a terrible public speaker, right? Dumbass.

If only Tin has some inner monolog telling him not to blurt everything that comes into his head.

I see the duck has applied a fresh coating of cloacal pomade today.

"Just say Tea Party. It's shorter, and synonymous."

Also, good job making a gun joke, asshole. Timely as usual!

Meanwhile, Romney's advisors have likely started telling him not to open his yap at all. "Just get up there, Mitt, and don't talk about corporations, or tax returns, or donuts, or raincoats, or Nascar team owners you know, or MI6, or the Olympics, or Palestine, or ... ah, fuck it, we've already lost this thing."

Today, in topical political cartooning: MINOR STUFF SOMEONE SAID FOUR YEARS AGO AND EVERYONE'S FORGOTTEN ABOUT BY NOW.

Great timing, Bruce, drawing a comic about "clinging to guns" 12 days before a gun massacre that killed a dozen people and injured scores more.

Bravo, King Features Syndicate, for having the temerity to run it today anyway.

Besides, Fartbama's just going to read his speech off a TelePrompTer anyway, so why does he need to practice it, right?

"Cloacal pomade" for the epic win.

Tinsh is slacking even for him, though: I would have expected he'd find a way to work Biden's clean & articulate line in there somewhere.

Remember when the Tea Party was making a big fuss about a literal interpretation of the Constitution?
How many places, and where, does the phrase "well regulated" appear?

In the real world:

* "Romney signs off on permanent assault weapons ban"
* "Obama signs bill allowing loaded guns into national parks"

Surely this contrast would be worthy of a cartoon illustrating a lightning rod of controversy?

Mallard drinking game: Look at a month's worth of strips, and drink every time one starts with "In other news...." Winning strategy: Before playing, have your liver transplant already scheduled.

Rootbeer said...

The best part of Mr. Splut's drinking game idea is that if I die in a tragic accident, they won't be able to use my damaged liver to prolong Bruce Tinsley's sad life.

DiR said...

Oooh yeah, I remember when Obama said that 5 years ago, and it's singularly sank his campaign, and he went on the lose the election in a landslide.

Heck, I'm slacking too if I missed this obvious cheap shot:

Ladies and gentlemen, 80-90 hours of research per week at work!

Suzanna Gratia-Hupp What the Second Amendment really means.

Because most of us who have taken the training and gone through the background check to attain a Concealed Carry Permit, I suppose we are the 'bitter clingers'.

CW in LA said...

Wait a sec. Did Anonymelonfucker just admit to being a bitter Klingon?

Then you must realize, Melonfuck, that hiding behind anonymity is without honor.

waaaaaahnonymous said...

Well, now we know who gun nuts fap to.

"Bitter clingers" are people who still rattle on about non-scandalous quotes from an entire Olympiad ago like anyone cares, and dredge up theoretical Rambo-type incidents that happened 20+ years ago like Ms Hupp's, and which probably would have ended with Ms Hupp getting shot as well.

I imagine even she's moved on by now. Shame our local coward can't.

Isn't it too soon after the 1991 Luby's shooting to start politicizing the event? Let's wait until the victims have completely decomposed!

rewinn said...

As @CW in LA points out, anyone who is too cowardly to put his name behind his words, is too cowardly to rely on in a crisis.

Yeah, take a class, get a license, carry a gun. Any coward can do that, so what?

Image yourself a hero in Colorado or at Luby's if you will but on the other hand remember that it's much more likely you'll just shoot your most valued possession.
