That damned News

What's Mallard raving about today?

NBC, Paul Ryan

What's the matter, Mallard? Your boyfriend can't stand the heat from the mean old Media?

I'm guessing Bruce watched Clint Eastwood's RNC speech and yelled at the screen, "Hey, slow down, Poindexter!"

It's not the heat Ryan can't stand. It's the light.

Joe Scarborough, David Gregory, Michael Steele, Steve Schmidt, etc, etc, etc. In other words, Fuck You Bruce.

It's kind of funny (kind of) that Brucie used Chuck Todd as his straw man in today's strip considering that Todd just recently made a fool of himself by praising the "diversity" of GOP elected officials.

Speaking of Clint at the RNC (and in the interest of something timely and funny for a change) check out Tom the Dancing Bug's one off strip Clint and Obs.

Even Fox News Says that Paul Ryan Lied Like Crazy During His Speech

Unknown said...

Paul Ryan didn't lie about Barack Obama GM speech.

On a side note...the VP debate between Paul Ryan and Joe Biden should be quite amusing.

Wow, so now we have Unknownyrast, do we?

Meanwhile (IN OTHER NEWS!), once again Tinshley drew someone he doesn't like with big buckteeth. Did he get molested by beavers when he was at summer camp or something?

Hey, unknown-First of all, people who don't put at least some sort of effort into a name are never going to be respected.
Second- Yes, Ryan did lie. Ryan made it clear that he considered what Obama said at the plant a promise to save it. But pres. Obama never got a chance to save it. It basically closed before he took office, and the final closing date was set. Nothing that happened from that point could change it.

Also- if you're going to play the 'but it didn't technically close until he was president" card- then I'm going to play the "he never said THAT plant would definitely stay open if the government was behind them- only if government was helping them make the transition to more fuel-efficient cars" card. Hardly what Ryan said he said. And, since GM had no plans to make that transistion with that plant, he couldn't help keep it open. (And the "Obama doubled down on his promise" bit? Hogwash. He specifically says there "plants like the GM facility in Janesville"- again, GM didn't give him the chance to help that facility.)

Of course, none of this means anything since even Clint Eastwood agrees that the auto bailout worked.

What's funny is the comments after the dipsy doodle editorial that tries to finesse Ryan's comments into something not entirely false. Someone points out that every other news outlet considered that a lie, and the little editor that couldn't comes back and huffs that he's a fearless independent who doesn't follow the pack. Someone else says something and he pops back in with a lame rejoinder. Then one or two dozen comments follow, all enumerating lies from Ryan (and a few from Romney), and the editor seems to be real busy elsewhere. Regrouting the tub, perhaps.
