Well, At Least He Believes In Evolution. I Think...

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Nogai Khan!

Yeah. I mean, it's not like some of this could be inspired by watching Meth America's endless dedication towards ignorance and self-destruction which it apparently thinks are virtues. Nope. It's just elitism!

"Actually, Miss, We Were Thinking About Midwesterners..."

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because daktari.

Pfft--why does a good Rightwinger need anything other than Fox? Remember, folks--ignorance am strength!

"Have You Forgotten Who Writes This?"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because too much carbon monoxide for me to bear.

You know, it says something that Muir can't even manage to do something clever with a plot that actually has the raw materials to be interesting. But then, that would involve Zed being a character, instead of Captain Mitty, wouldn't it?

Monday, June 27, 2011

No, Muir. It's Not.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because amazing what he can do with those hooks, eh?

Okay, Muir, let's get this in order. This was a sting operation. They are fairly standard. This one seems to have been poorly concieved and handled, but again, this happens. In Watergate, a semisecret dirty tricks group close to the Presidency attempted to bug the Democrats, got caught, and began a series of increasingly inept coverups, with the President's blessing.

But Muir wants this to be as big as Watergate, because he desperately wants to believe that Obama can be impeached for this. Because damn it, there's no law against being the president while a Democrat. Or black.

"It's Clear This Is Intended To Further The Cause Of IslamoCommuFascism!"

It's the Day's Days of Days! Because Peggy Olsen.

Like many scandals that percolate on the right wing, this is based on a genuine happening--a sting operation gone bad--then elevated into a massive conspiracy through a combination of misinformation and hysteria.

It never occurs to Muir's deluded mind to ask--a) what exactly would be gained if this was just an evil conspiracy to get Mexicans guns, and b) what about all the other guns the cartels have?

"Boomers Were Weak, And Unworthy!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because what happened to the mouse?

Actually, the hippies were a tiny minority, and most of the boomers were--and are--fairly right-leaning, and often rather reactionary, people who long for the stability their parents had won without understanding the cooperation that made it all possible. Which is why they've essentially dismantled everything that let America have its long era of prosperity, while focusing on bringing back the things that made that era less than nice...

Because clearly, it was racism that made the 50s grand. Not progressive taxation and powerful unions.

"It's All A Conspiracy!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because down on Cripple Creek, she sends me.

Of course, if Muir actually READ the aforementioned sources, he'd know this isn't true, but he doesn't. Also, of course, Muir was perfectly okay with all the deaths back when Bush was in charge, so I must assume he considers this a belated development that would have been a good thing if a proper warmonger was in office.

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

And Summer Movie Season Is On!

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Klaus Kinski in Creature.

Time to 'enjoy' Muir's godawful fanart! Because we need to see a bunch of characters we don't give a damn about dressed up like the cast of latest summer blockbuster!

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Dewy-Eyed Liberals! Giving A Shit 'Bout Animals!

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because watch Baccano! You'll be glad you did. Once you get past the first episode.

Yep. And you just know this is going to go into a 'The Reasons Liberals Suck' speech in a strip or two.

Monday, June 20, 2011

Classic "Comedy"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because glowing spheres of death.

Oh, Muir. Thank you for not making us laugh about anything, again.

Sunday, June 19, 2011

Yes, Muir. You ARE A Racist Douchebag.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because idleness is chief mistress of vices all.

Having his black sock puppet blather on about birther bullshit. Classic Muir.

Saturday, June 18, 2011

"Can't You Accept You're Both Loathsome?"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because I'm worried now, but I won't be worried long.

Apparently, they compete to see who can be the most trite and obnoxious. It's a tough call.

Friday, June 17, 2011

Yeah. Yeah. Should We Tell Him?

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because en garde.

And by 'citizens' Muir means 'the rich', all of us lesser people not quite measuring up. Oh, and nice to see a climate change denier trying to appropriate Galileo. The irony, she is breathtaking.

Thursday, June 16, 2011

"Keynes, Marx--What's The Difference, I Ask You?"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because we don't need no education.

And Muir continues to convince himself that he lives in a land run by Marxist dogma, while demonstrating that he doesn't know what Marxist dogma is. Yes, Muir, keep yelling for more snake oil, to cure the shakes that have developed since we made snake oil our beverage of choice.

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

"Health Is For The Weak!"

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

Oh, Skye. All true Murikans seek to bloat up like pigs, and die like dogs!

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Ignorance Proves Worth!

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because the Landlord's Game!

Well, as usual, Muir shows his age. Because remember--people love jokes about the teen star of an over twenty-year old movie!

Monday, June 13, 2011

"Blacker Than The Blackest Black, Times Infinity!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because the Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Zombies!

Yeah. In between Skye being the poorly-considered caricature that is her, and the weak attempt at an Obama jab--the strip's on autopilot. The course--through HELL!

Sunday, June 12, 2011

"For I Am A Mighty Hunter And Gatherer! Roar!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Taras Bulba.

You know, this just sums up Muir's brand of brain-dead reactionary "philosophy". Muir considers himself a tough man of action, belonging to the greatness of the past, stuck by ill-fortune in a decadent weak present. In truth, like most of his fascist ilk, Muir is the pampered, weak child of privilege he imagines his opponents as. As he whines about this imaginary past, he demonstrates the very weakness he claims had no place in it. Muir babbles about virtues that he has in fact never demonstrated, all the while imagining he's devestating his opponent. It's pretty sad, actually.

But hey, at least he's shifting into 'batshit' mode.

Saturday, June 11, 2011

If Sleaze Came In Concentrated Form, It Would Be This Strip.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because children of the grave.

Sometimes, Muir just lets his entire cast join in the race to be most loathsome. Ranking them tends to be tough.

Friday, June 10, 2011

Yeah. Yeah... *Sigh*

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because the last starfighter is dead.

Chris Muir has two settings--'crazy', and 'batshit'. In some ways, I prefer 'batshit'. He's not actually entertaining, but at least he's somewhat interesting. As opposed to this, which manages to be obnoxious, AND boring. Honestly, I wonder why the hell he thinks this is a storyline to focus on. But then--it's Muir.

Thursday, June 9, 2011

"No Republican Can Allow--A Stab In The Back!"

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

No True Republican can countenance--BETRAYAL! Purge the Party! In Purity lies Strength!

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

Called It.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Byzantium.

Well, it's clear that Muir doesn't see the irony of providing softcore jerkoff material for modern art fetishists while commenting on l'affaire de Weiner. Typical.

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

I'd Say I Was Pleasantly Surprised, But... It's Muir...

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Danny Trejo is a muppet.

What, nothing of Weiner's public trip to Canassa? A part of me wonders if Muir isn't aware on some level of what weak tea the whole affair is, especially in a strip that regularly features subpar pinup art. But I suspect that he already had this strip drawn, and we're going get Muir's... musings on the whole matter tomorrow...

Monday, June 6, 2011

"We HAVE To Stop President Blacula!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Ubik. It resurrects the dead.

You know, as we stop to digest this vile collection of slander so old it's rotted into an unidentifiable sludge, I'd like to come out and restate something that I like to point out every now and then. Muir is not a patriot. He's a vile little jingoistic turd who doesn't so much love this nation as loves the idea of his club being on top. While he confuses this with nationalism, the truth is he'd cheerfully sell us out to an enemy if they were the right sort of enemy.

So, let's all be sad that he wasn't born in the 1930s, where he could have humiliated himself by boosting the Fascists and the Nazis. Instead of now, where he can imagine he would have opposed them.

Sunday, June 5, 2011

"We Live In A Heightened State Of Information!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Hoagy Carmichael.

I wonder what's going to happen when she doesn't get the nomination.

I'm serious. Muir's investing so much into this downright Gnostic worldview of his, it's going to take a lot of head-twisting to get around the fact that no, he and Palin are not in touch with some higher form of reality.

Saturday, June 4, 2011

"This Is A Totally Big Deal!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because you ain't nothing but a hound dog.

Yep. This is a big deal. Totally big deal. Also--boobies!

Friday, June 3, 2011

"You Can't Handle The Truth!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because the itsy bitsy spider.

Muir continues to cling to the Weiner "affair", even as it perishes in an slow, ignominous death.

Thursday, June 2, 2011

"I'se Is A Winner!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because froggy went a courtin'.

Ahh. Treating a pseudo-scandal and a pseudo-candidate (both of which most of the Right are backing away from as fast as possible) as Serious Concerns. Classic. And remember--Palin is a woman. So any suggestion that she isn't absolutely incredible is sexist. Even Liberal Jan knows that!

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

"See! I Can Shout Out A Racist Theory, And Claim It's The Left's! That Makes Me Not-Racist!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because House of Leaves.

I'm pretty sure Muir has never actually read Marcuse--just a sampling of quotes and some spin by a slightly smarter right-wing figure that he is essentially cribbing. Just as he hasn't really read the "Founding Fathers", or he'd realize that his reactionary drivel has nothing to do with their beliefs. Indeed, this strip sums up Muir so well--a pretentious, racist asshat who claims an intellectual heft he did nothing to earn, and of course, puts his claptrap in the mouth of a black sock puppet because he thinks it proves how not-racist he is.
