1. My local newspaper carries the waste of newsprint Mallard Fillmore in its comics section but also

has Doonesbury. One can easily tell who is the more intelligent and better cartoonist.

2. Ugh. "Mallard Fillmore" is just illustrated RW talking points.

My paper (Washington Post) carries the puke-worthy "Prickly City" which is RW projection of political issues.

15. Could be, but...

I'm pretty much convinced that Mitt Romney and Guy Smiley were separated at birth.

5. Because conservative rank-and-file view "nuanced" as dishonest.

 


The only reason they view nuanced as dishonest is because they can't understand it. And the only explanation for that is: they're stupid.

I really do hate that kind of wide brush painting. But what other explanation can there be?

Ayn Rand was so incapable of making her point that she had to end her book with a hundred page long monologue to explain it.

The original Cheaper by the Dozen would interupt the story every half hour or so while the Father or Mother gave a speech as the kids looked on wide-eyed with lots of "gosh" and "I didn't know that". After a couple minutes it would resume the story like nothing happened.

These authors either were too stupid to embed their messages in the story, or knew their target audience was too stupid to understand an embedded message. Heck, I've seen elected GOP congress-critters on CSPAN on several times talk about how their voters were too stupid to understand what they are doing. Show that to a GOP voter, and they'll laugh assuming the elected official must be making fun of all the liberals in their district.

18. Only because ducks have more credibility with the audience .......

they aim for. For the most part, Mallard is quacking to the choir.

7. The last panel is incomplete.

 

Romney has also changed his position on No Child Left Behind and on whether he would have sent the military into Pakistan to get bin Laden.

With a little research I could probably augment the list still further, but I realize that Trudeau had already pretty much filled the space he had available. To get in all of Romney's flip-flops, he'd need to use really teeny-tiny lettering.

16. Just be assued that he stands by his position, whatever it was, though he doesn't remember, exactly.

 

Words you stand slightly to the side of, in a somewhat rearward direction, almost a behind-ish nuance there, if you will...

12. No wonder Romney can say...I don't know what I said, but whatever I said is what I believe.

Boy is that playing it safe! With all his flip flopping...who the hell knows what he believes or what he stands for or what we'd get if (God forbid) he should win the election.

14. ROMNEY IS A WORTHLESS, LYING, OUT-OF-TOUCH WITH THE AVERAGE PERSON THROWBACK TO THE '50S

Hopefully, voters won't be stupid enough to vote for him; besides, I could never vote for someone who believes in a religion with ABSOLUTELY NO HISTORICAL OR ARCHEOLOGICAL BASIS IN FACT (i.e., no evidence whatsoever...it's all made-up stuff).

17. Hey, there was proof on golden plates, GOLDEN! . . . but, the guy lost them in a move.

Who hasn't had a box of dishes go missing when moving to a new house? See? Entirely plausible. QED.

19. Oh man, I'm not even going to touch that one.

Too easy of a setup.

I'm just going to say people probably shouldn't mock his religion too much, lest they/we/whoever find our own ox being gored.
