Leave it to Bruce to turn Mother's Day into another excuse to bitch about television.

In other news: I can't wait for Mallard to spend another week bitching about Apple™ because of this story... right before spending another week bitching about how much public school education sucks.

Bitching about the free market again, Comrade Tinsley.


This particular trend in media entertainment does not appeal to me, but it seems to move the needle on viewership. The public is dumb dumb dumb. I demand a college football playoff, but nobody gets a trophy, you already get too many trophies for highest self-esteem because the teachers union wields such power to influence resources and public policy! Awww...another reality show?! Obama's programming television pursuant to sharia law. More cheese doodles honey...drat, bring back the Solid Gold Dancers and the Fly Girls!

I understand that the backstage of many TV programs involving children would not bear close scrutiny, e.g. Cocaine use on The Brady Bunch

MOURNDAY

I got more than a bit lengthy in the strip comments, but in brief Tinsley's mad because we aren't rounding up and executing everyone who's not white/assimilated-Asian and pseudochristian.

...But don't talk about Timothy McVeigh, because THAT'S NOT FAIIIRRRRRR.

[gently caress] my internet connection. I had a comment listing what else was on the Herald-Mail opinion page today, but it disappeared into the bit bucket. The only important thing is that there was a Leonard Pitts column. Not one of the great ones, where he demonstrates that a Christian upbringing doesn't have to be a lifelong impediment to discovering and living the teachings of Jesus, but a good and cogent one. (The one about 3D printers, for the record.)

What is warrented is blanket protection from any condemnation of anti-Muslim backlash. This is America, after all!

Shoot first and let God sort 'em out, or something.

Bill the Splut said...

Bruce, you just made a strip condemning the media for talking about something before the facts were in, and you obviously made it before the facts were in. I'd advise you to think about that, but thinking is not your strong suit.

Randy Winn said...

There are over one billion Muslims in the world, most of whom are pretty friendly to the USA except when it comes to invasions, drone strikes (a bipartisan problem: hooray bipartianship!), blowing up their peasantry in general ... but most of all, American support for some of the nastiest governments on the planet.

No-one "deserves" to get bombed, whether by idiots with pressure cookers or drones.

Neo Tuxedo said...

Relax, Audrey. It happens.

Bill the Splut said...

Bruce, you could've saved everybody a lot of bother last month if you'd just told the police to look for Chechens.

Frank Stone said...

Isn't it great how conservatives don't believe in politicizing tragedies?

Neo Tuxedo said...

WOW. JUST... WOW.

And once again, the duck demonstrates the real reason he doesn't wear pants:

When you've got the balls to say shit like this in public, with your bare face hanging out and everything, you've got balls so big they can't fit into any pants not made for at least Godzilla.

Bill the Splut said...

He's not wearing pants because it shaves valuable seconds off of his "masturbating if the bombing was done by Muslims" time.

Randy Winn said...

TURDSDAY:

"Conservatives are the party of stupid and proud of it! Technology is bad, burning carbon is good!"

CW in LA said...

Is Brews calling the prez a Nigerian prince here?

I'm sure he'd say I'm the real racist for noticing.

Neo Tuxedo said...

I think he's making yet another Solyndra joke, either because his brain cell twitched on its own or because his vestigial editor pointed out that the strip he originally drew for today was not just factually incorrect (a thing we all know has never stopped Brewski from opening his lie-hole), but so factually incorrect so as to be legally actionable.

Tog said...

FUR-DURRRRR

Is the guy who only recently stopped using Mr. Noseworthy to represent the "Jewish Media Conspiracy" (now the "Liberal Media Conspiracy," because currently the right wing wuvs Israel) suggesting we start profiling on the basis of nose size?

I'm sure Tinsley doesn't realize it, but he's actually parodying himself.

Immediately after the bombing, the suspects were described as "dark-skinned," which excited Rush Limbaugh more than a suitcaseful of Viagra and Oxycontin. We know them to be as pale as Timmy McVeigh, but the magazine The Week ran (and then apologized for) a cover with deliberately-darkened caricatures of the TWO bombers.

Because, as Tinsley loves to tell us, the media is "liberal."

Neo Tuxedo said...

"In other news, I have no pants on. I'm completely naked from the waist down! [...] It's incredible. If it's on the TelePrompTer, I'll read it, no questions asked. My mind is on my dinner reservations. There's a kind of Zen perfection to my vacuity."
-- Roland Hedley, parodying Mallard before Mallard existed to parody

CW in LA said...

I'm truly baffled as to Brews' point today, unless it's "Stereotypes rule; people who don't like them drool."

I mean, maybe my standards for nasal size are different owing to my own industrial-grade honker, but I never thought the Tsarnaevs' schnozzes were even big. Or is Tinshly's assumption that they're Mooslims, therefore they're A-rabs, therefore they have big, Semitic noses?

Neo Tuxedo said...

SPLUTTER DAY

Over-under on how many gallons of what brand of research he had to drink before that "argument" sounded like something anyone is actually saying?

Randy Winn said...

SAD TURD DAY:

What a sad, sh1tty, angry world today's "conservatives" in habit!

Bill the Splut said...

As a kid, Bruce didn't play with his imaginary friends, he violently argued with his imaginary enemies.

Sadly, he didn't outgrow it.

CW in LA said...

And he soon worked out that he had to be able to make his imaginary enemies pretty damn dumb if he hoped to win those arguments...
