Ha ha, look at that fat lazy slob, slouched in a chair and staring into space while eating a bag of snacks, just like Mallard does in 3 out of every 5 strips! Why, he's so lazy, he hasn't even bothered to take off his pants!

Good job, Bruce, finding a topic even less timely than twerking. Way to define nonessential, buddy!

Orwell called it Duckspeak.

Remember when it turned out to be a bad idea for Brews to be harping on Ted Kennedy's drinking all the time?

Same goes with saying other people are nonessential, without a doubt.

Here comes the analysis of the ACA. Thanks for the footnote Brucie. It sure informs your comic.

Say, Bruce, I don't suppose you'd be interested in swiveling your Bright Light of Truth™ in the direction of this story?

How Private Insurance Companies Are Using Obamacare Fears to Rip People Off

I'm guessing not.

Frank Stone...'Addicting Info' is a left-wing website...and you apparently agree with them and are not suspicious of this spin they are using in an attempt to back Obamacare along with Obama the serial liar?

I suppose you are also a frequent follower of ‘Daily Beast', 'Mother Jones' and 'Daily Kos' for your political news.

Anonyloser of course finds Mallard Fillmore an impeccable news source.

Frank Stone said...

Re Wednesday: My first thought upon reading Mallard's question "Why am I here?" was "Affirmative action."

Then I got to the "punchline" and realized that it was just the setup for yet another mind-numbingly banal observation which Mallard finds So Significant that he has to devote a strip to it. Because, apparently, the Lamestream Media is covering up the fact that people sometimes forget why they entered a room.

Truth to Power, old sport!

Thursday:

"What would I have to do to get critical media coverage?"

I dunno, maybe just have a website run slow? Maybe have a shitty comic strip slip in a "Magic Negro" sneer? Bruce probably thinks even that isn't criticism, because he can't call him a different "Magic" word beginning with N.

Bruce Timely strikes again! In the midst of the weeks-long shitstorm Obama has been weathering from all sides over the stumbling-out-of-the-gate launch of Healthcare.gov and his Historically Unprecedented (to hear the right-wing unintelligentsia tell it) Lies, I tell you, LIES!!! about the ACA, Bruce roots around in his bag of moldy oldies and comes up with "The lamestream media's in the tank for Obummer! Hur-hur!"

Psst... Bruce? The trick to getting away with not trying anymore is to not make it blindingly, laughably obvious that you're not trying anymore.

Kip W [Muffaroo] said...

Oh, Imaginary Fantasy Obama! If you want criticism, all you have to do is stop being make-believe and be Real Actual Obama, and then they'll blame you for stuff that happened before you were even born!

Kip W [Muffaroo] said...

Heh heh. Rand Paul! Just go ask him, why don't you? If he's busy, just read any Wikipedia article and put his name at the end.

Kip W [Muffaroo] said...

They're positively fizzing with unfocused rage at MF today. 'Craig' is posting lists of Obama's accomplishments from the Washington Post, and they're refuting them with lists of "He's a POOPY HEAD and he HATES WHITE PEOPLE and he CAN'T COMPROMISE and he WON'T LEAD…"

It's like ten little train wrecks all happening on the same stretch of track.

Kip W [Muffaroo] said...

Aw, Mallard's sore because the nanny state enforcers blockaded some public parks, just like some tea party tourist wouldn't sue if his hoverround couldn't get up a ramp in an unguarded monument somewhere.

They absolutely won't own their acts. It's always someone else's fault, even when they've run victory laps about how clever they were to shut it all down. (We can't make government run, but we sure can make it stop! Haw haw.)

Mallard Fillmore is the real world???
