It's A Token Ethnic SuperFriends Reunion!

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because I am still living with your ghost.

I believe I once jokingly suggested having El Dorado Dad and Samurai Mom hook up--I know I rejected making the joke yesterday, on the grounds that I thought I'd made it before.

And yet possiblities I view as horrible and ridiculous are standard plot "twists" in DbD.

I hate this strip. I just want to make it clear.

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Ah. Just What The Strip Needed.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because look out, Smithers!

Yay. It's Samurai Mom. Ooh, I wonder what other Japanese phrases she'll spice up her bad English with to help Muir convey the fact that she's a foreigner.

"Just A Liar, And A Wannabe Rapist!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because there'll be a golden ladder reaching down.

Muir demonstrates solidarity with and James O'Keefe, creepy Republican ratfucker.

Well, he knows his own.

"Captain Mitty Will Be Fine! Fine!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because sub mission dragging me down.


Ahh. Obscure gun reference. Great.

Sunday, March 27, 2011

"Can't You See THE TRUTH?"

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


"President Blacula's an evil Muslim infiltrator! Heh. Not really. But actually--really. Yep. ACORN! Multiculturism! MUSLIMS!"


And with that out of the way, it must have been really easy to--draw that one. Even by Muir's standards.

Captain Mitty And The Funny Foreign Guy!

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because it depends on who is looking.

"I am how do you say foreign, and do not understand your euphemisms, being thus stupid!"

"He's Captain Fucking Mitty, Man!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because electric word life, and it means forever.

Yeah. Got it, Muir. Zed is awesome. Sure.

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

"Captain Mitty Will Be Fine!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Burgundy triumphant!

Yeah. This would be dramatic. If his cast weren't all loathsome cyphers.

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

"We Believe That Knowing You're Just Better Than Everyone Else Is The Key To Liberty.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because hell followed with him.

And Muir showers praise on a brainless bit of cryptoracism, demonstrates that like most conservatives he doesn't know what 'common sense' means, and puts in some Palin-boosting.

2012 is going to be painful.

Monday, March 21, 2011

"He Should Be Leading The Charge In Afghanistanland! On A Dinosaur!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because give yourself up.

Muir's got a pretty fluid set of standards. Somehow, Bush's constant vacations were good and proper--Obama going out on diplomatic missions is treason--or close to it.

But then--this is Muir. The man who thinks of himself as an amazing patriot for his willingness to support sending the troops out to get shot at whenever a Republican is in the White House.

Sunday, March 20, 2011

"Ve Have Been Stabbed In Zee Back By Zee Liberal Svine!"

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

Amazing that Muir views respect for a military our Founding Fathers never wanted us to have as a key civic virtue with military service the mark of the true patriot. All while commenting on the evil of unions, the glories of the past, and the support of the masses, which he knows his sort has, if only the evil leftist conspiracy would shut up.

...

I only call him a fascist asshole because he is.

Saturday, March 19, 2011

Yep! A Comment About A Political Ad From Three Years Back.

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

And Muir's effort a drama drags on. This is becoming tedious. Even by the standards of DbD.

Friday, March 18, 2011

An Epic Fail.

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

You know, staring at the lifeless drawings and poor artwork, one can't help but feel a little sorry for Muir. He's trying so hard to draw an exciting adventure strip, but his own lack of talent is standing in his way.

And then one remembers a few of his creepier jokes, and the feeling passes.

All The Excitement And Drama Of Watching Paint Dry.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Pippa's Progress!

You know--Muir is clearly trying to do something in the manner of classic adventure strips like Wash Tubbs/Captain Easy, or Terry and the Pirates. The problem is he's a lousy artist, and a lousy writer, so the whole thing falls flat.

Ahh, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?

Of course, like most of Browning, there's a certain irony in that statement, as it's said by a skilled but ultimately mediocre artist in a conversation with a wife who is (implicitly) cheating on him.

"We Should A Bombed Them Back During The Cold War!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because to an extent.

Yeah. Yeah. Remember--Captain Mitty is old. But still utterly cool. Being a government sniper.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Ummm... What?

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because na zielonej ukrainie.

...We had the Middle East?

I mean--wow. Even by Muir's standards this is a pretty naked statement of arrogant imperialism.

Monday, March 14, 2011

Muir--Evil Scum, And Proud Of It.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because ogniem i mieci

So--Muir sees a tragedy in Japan as opportunity to gloat over a momentarily defeated opponent. More proof that real evil isn't very cool.

Know Thyself.

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

Actually, I'd say the Boomer's big problem is a tendency towards reactionary worship of the America of their childhood, and desperate attempts to "toughen up" the nation to go back to that era while ignoring the actual circumstances that resulted in such a prosperous America. Which is pretty much on display here.

Friday, March 11, 2011

Holy Jesus Fuck.

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because how much is that doggie in the window?

Muir continues on his union-bashing triumphalism--and using the same damn picture of Jan--and adds a delightful bit of racist humor allowing us to revel in the wonder that is him. Of course, he's just being ironic. Honest!

Thursday, March 10, 2011

"They Are People Who Disagree With Us!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because the Dog of the South.

You know, my tolerance for Muir's sockpuppets is at an all time low right now, so I'm just going to label this one SSDD and move on.

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

"Even I, A Liberal Think So!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because this is the police!

Thank you, Jan, for once again allowing Muir to pretend he's showing both sides, as he demonstrates his awe for ratfucker O'Keefe. And his outrage that an organization that he has shown nothing for disdain has people in it that don't like him.

Tuesday, March 8, 2011

Ummm... What?

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because blowing your mind.

See, the media talks about soldiers having problems. Which is totally disrespecitng them! Real patriots know that soldiers are invulnerable! Wooo!

You know something? Muir once again demonstrates that he cares a lot less for the troops then the people he imagines to despise them.

Monday, March 7, 2011

"Yep. She's Irish!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Ann-Hayden Jones, and her husband, Pip.

In quiet moments like this, let us take in the fact that after nearly a decade of writing this strip, Muir still has to shout out his characters' distinctive traits. Largely because they don't really have any.

Sunday, March 6, 2011

"Chris Muir! He's Hysterically Slanderific!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because there's a chapel in the pines.

And Muir uses a bit of wingnut paranoid fantasy as a diving board into the realms of ad hominem attack and faulty comparison, comparing Obama to Hitler, Mao, and the Kims, in a way that demonstrates his own shaky understanding of the horror he claims to oppose, and his rather poor . He also unironically uses the language of the McCarthite Red Scare, all while thinking he's showing his own incredible integrity, and maturity.

Of course, that's Muir's problem. He's not mature, and he has all the integrity of an earthworm. Like most reactionaries, he proclaims himself an incredible patriot, but the nation he loves isn't actually his country, but an imaginary version that he thinks used to exist. The present nation is a weak and decadent shell which needs to be shocked into its proper course. The government must be opposed, unless it's in the hands of reactionaries, who will do what needs to be done. (Which is usually launching a war on somebody.) Muir thinks this strip is a devastating argument against his opponents--instead it's an advertisement of his ignorance and moral bankruptcy.

But then, it's got plenty of competition in that area.

"'Cuz I 'm A Super-Cool Sniper Dude!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because I wish I had you to talk to.

Ahh, Captain Mitty. Will the endless bullshit that Muir keeps adding to your past ever cease to be amusing in a strangely infuriating way?

Friday, March 4, 2011

Stop The Madness!

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because life is cheap, but toilet paper is expensive.

Sometimes I think this strip is like a Rat Pack bender gone nasty.

And then I remember that Sinatra liked unions.

"Truly, They Are Menacing Us!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because when there's whip there's a way.

When Muir dreamed about bombing anti-war protestors--that was all right.

When the tea-partiers were carrying around racist signs--they weren't, and anyway, leftwing conspiracy.

But everytime a union member loses their temper, every time a counter-protestor gets shoved--it's all proof, proof, that unions are irredeemably evil thugs. And scary.

That's the funny thing about the Right Wing. They use words like 'strength' and 'will' a lot--but it seems to mean everyone else has to tough it out.

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

"Yeah! They's Is Evil!"

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because I was going to put a quote from Archer here. But I couldn't think of one that wasn't too filthy. Still love that show, though.

Muir continues to insist that it's all an act--that Obama is horrible and corrupt--indeed the most horrible and corrupt president ever. This is because Muir considers 'being a Democrat' a crime.
