"Bill Clinton! He's A Horndog! HA!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because he's racing and chasing and plotting a course.

You know, as Muir recycles his "Obama is an entitled ass" and "Bill Clinton is a horndog" gags, I am once again reminded how much of far right politics is jealousy and resentment, mixed with a gigantic sense of entitlement.

Yay! It's Over!

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because the almighty janitor.

...That was a distinctly painful series of "jokes". And thus, seeing Muir show one of his occasional flashes of humanity is a very welcome relief.

Yeah. You're A Misogynist, Muir.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because the snow isn't coming down straight.

You know how bad Muir is? He hides his awful sexism--behind patriotism. That's pretty damned loathsome.

"Happy Holidays, And Death To The Lackeys Of The Evil Islamocommufacsist Conspiracy!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because the hut on chicken legs.

Gosh, Muir, you plucky white guy! You've got the courage to keep being "politically incorrect" year after year! But you also remember to wish people a Merry Christmas. How... swell.

Anyway, happy holidays, everyone.

"Sometimes, We Make Them Fight To The Death."

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Potop!


First, those are revolting looking children.

Second--I find the amount of acceptance for professional assassins in this universe strangely amusing. Though not in the manner Muir intended.

Captain Mitty Ain't Down With Them Gaying Up Our Army!

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because howitzer!

Ahh, nice. More of the patented Muir homophobia. Great.

And remember folks--Captain Mitty is cool!

"Only Cowards Deny Corporations Should Be Able To Put Ground Glass In Baby Food, If They So Desire!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because verily, I say thee nay!

And we get a foretaste of what the next two years will be, where the lunatic fringe bitches and complains about items most people would consider good and necessary. I'm afraid the Repubs are in for a bumpy ride. All because they called on the support of...

Ahh. That always hits the spot.

Monday, December 20, 2010

Drum Roll.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because you shall eat MANFLESH!



Why doesn't Jan know about flash drives?

"It's A Shame They're Dying For The Kenyan Usurper!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because I'm two, Doctor.




He really thinks this is touching. And... patriotic. (To be fair, something like this might not be so bad in strip without as much creepy failed cheesecake as Day by Day. And a cast that isn't so loathsome. And is actually a cast for that matter.)

I Will See That Distorted, Hideous Face In My Nightmares...

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Kukla and Ollie were in bed with the Chinese.

Muir's efforts at pathos stumble on the fact that he can't write, he can't draw, and that his cast are thoroughly loathsome most of the time. He's desperate enough to remind us that he made Sam part Irish awhile ago. And part... Japanese. Hence the... eyes. The horrible, horrible eyes.

Friday, December 17, 2010

Umm... You Mean After Eight Years...

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Martha my dear.

This is more evidence that Muir has magically forgotten the Bush II years happened. But then, they don't count as boomers. They understood that America was great, and that wars were great, and that the rich are just better! The way all real Americans do!

Thursday, December 16, 2010

They're Acting All Uppity!

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because after death, you don't feel nauseous.

Ahh, here the less-than-majestic cry of the entitled white guy! "Youse is the REAL racists!"

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

"Clearly This Shows He's Utterly Incompetent!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because sire, he lives a goodly hence, underneath a mountain.



Yeah. Remember when you were defending Bush for allowing torture, Muir? Because I do.

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

"The FCC NEVER Tried To Do Stuff Like This When Bush Was In Power!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because he thinks it's not kosher.

Oh, boy. Another thing that is horrific, because the Democrats are in power. Man, it almost makes me want to see the Repubs back in power, to watch Muir go back to ignoring these issues, and applauding torture.

"Sniff--Goodbye, Captain Mitty."

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because it is the night of the dear Savior's birth.

You know--maybe I'm touchy, but this offends me. I'm reminded of the scene in All About Eve where Addison DeWitt, after revealing that "Eve's" dead husband is a fiction calls it an insult to real heroes and the women who really lost them. That is my problem with Zed in a Captain Mitty-mode--Muir thinks he's making a great patriotic point--instead this is an insult to those whose loved ones actually have risked their life serving in wars that Muir supported when a Republican was in office--and would likely still support if that were the case.

Sunday, December 12, 2010

"Well, At Least They Aren't Spying On Us Using Our Fillings!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because I have stood here before.

I am left in awe of two things--that Muir believes such a farango of paranoid nonsense, and that he is a Monty Python fan. Something tells me the Terrys, Palin and Cleese wouldn't like that. (Eric Idle probably wouldn't care.)

Saturday, December 11, 2010

So He Still Has A Leg Then? Of Sorts?

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because a hog on ice.

Why do I smell a statement about how great things were going in Vietnam until the Boomers stabbed our forces in the back coming up?

Friday, December 10, 2010

"The Greatest Generation--At Killing Things!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because splendid isolation.

Muir loves him some Greatest Generation praise--except of course, for their love of the New Deal. And all the unions. But they shot Nazis, who were German, and thus, evil. So that's a plus.

Thursday, December 9, 2010

"We're Gaining The Hispanic Vote! And Also Leprechauns!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Jose Delores!

Of course, Obama is neither pro-Chavez or a Communist, but then Muir's President Blacula isn't Obama--he's a fantasy figure Muir has created who he can project whatever negative traits he desires on. All while convincing himself that he has all the right thinking populace with him.

I know, I know--but this picture--it's just so perfect.

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

Oh, If Only There Were Tort Reform...

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because where you going to sleep tonight?

Yep. The Free Market, and banning punitive damages are the only way to save health care! Also--Ayn Rand! Down with President Blacula! More cowbell!

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

"If It Makes President Blacula Unhappy, It Must Be Cool!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because are there novels by her bed?

As Skye is her... charming self, I feel obligated that this strip shows Muir's tendency to divide the world into good guys and bad guys based on how much they hate the President and evil brown-skinned Muslims (and for Muir, that might just be the same thing) achieves a certain glorious incoherance at times, with him saluting an anarchist who's leaked state secrets, and Mossad for maybe violating international law.

Two things that don't go together...

Monday, December 6, 2010

Ah. A Frank Joke.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because this is the life.

Interesting blend. A touch of homophobia, AND Muir blaming Obama for the end result of all the pearl-clutching about terrorists that he saw as the duty of a real American just a little while ago.

Sunday, December 5, 2010

"I Support The Troops, And Hope They Rise In Rebellion Against President Blacula!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because jealousy!

Muir does a complete about-face on everything--because Obama's a Democrat. He claims that the media is doing a blackout--despite the fact that Afghanistan has been featured with increasing prominence in news articles of late. He goes on about the higher casualties, but fails to realize that sending more soldiers there has somethign to do with it. In other words--only Republicans can support the troops, for which they should be repaid by not criticizing any military action they undertake, while Democrats are traitors by nature...

Dylan was right. It's a hard rain gonna fall...

"He's A Wimp! A Wimp Married To A Scary Black Woman!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because so help me Jesus.

Muir is the typical white blowhard, and thus he believes that bluster and boasting are the signs of courage and manliness. As Obama lacks this, Muir is certain he's a total wimp, that Muir could take him easy! And Sarah Palin, the woman who lacked the fortitude to finish a single term as governor of Alaska clearly has courage in spades! And Michelle Obama is scary!

Yeah. I really don't like Muir, you know. He gives me lots of reason to not like him.

Friday, December 3, 2010

"Youse Guys Cheated!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Mr. Brown is a clown who rides through the town in a coffin.

Ahhh, that's right. The Democrats weren't brought into power by the public's rejection of the GOP's evil. Nope. They cheated.

Keep singing that tune, Muir. It's good way to make sure you'll keep singing it in the future.

"Ha! What A Phony!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because twist away the gates of steel!

And now, every gag I thought up about this cartoon.

1) "Well--wait, no, they'd prefer to see her be shot from a cannon. False alarm."

2) "How can they even understand what she's saying to be sure that she means it?"

3) "Nice try, guys. Almost had me going there."

4) "They also can't tell Whizzo Butter from a dead crab."
