That damned Hot Dog

What's Mallard raving about today?

Hot Dogs, President Obama

OK, so, this was obviously supposed to be about the Republican concerns over how mean President Obama's campaign is being. Because, like all bullies, the Republicans can dish it out but they turn into complete pussies when someone fights back.

Besides, most of the fight back from Democrats consists of telling people what Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and the Republican Party have said they believe and said they would enact.

In the case of Romney, of course, this means you can say virtually anything since he has held every possible position at some point in the last 10 years. In the case of Paul Ryan, yes he has been actively espousing the most extreme Ayn Rand-inspired views imaginable...but don't you understand that talking about that fact is not popular, so shut up, shut up, shut up!

In any event, none of that helps explain this comic, in which an man appears to have wandered into a classroom and ordered a hot dog (despite the hastily added napkin holder, which does not magically transform the setting, despite Mallard's fond hope).

Does anybody else think, despite the signature and website plug, that this is and old "Herman" or possibly "Ballard Street" Tinsley just xeroxed? Honestly, this looks NOTHING like his usual artwork (and I use the term loosely).

Maybe the DTs have set in? Or abated?

What confuses me about this is the background! When was the last time Tinsley actually drawn a background? And where the hell is the duck? I am so confused.

This was likely ghost-drawn because Fumduck couldn't draw anything remotely acceptable.

Yeah, just look at the violent Chicago-style methods Rahm Emmanuel used to crush that teacher's strike!

Wait, he didn't? In exactly the same way every Occupy strike didn't end? CAN'T HEAR YOU! GOT HOT DOGS IN MY EARS!

As to it being ghosted, that implies that the thankfully late Rev. Moon paid enough money to the Hack Duck that Bruce can afford to hire an actual--

As this weekend's Fox News live suicide should have showed us, NOTHING says entertainment to the Right like people falling over dead.

"The Chicago Way"? You mean with sport peppers and celery salt on a poppy-seeded roll?

Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin' town. Tinsley hopes that by just mentioning the name, he can get the base barking about crooked politics, because Nixon was totally robbed.

Democrats have to stop living in the past, because Republicans were there first, and they're not leaving.

This is just embarrassingly inept.
