"Can't They See His Evil?"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Little Peggy March.

Jeez, can't people see the Republicans are the good guys in this?  They just want to ensure crippling financial inequality, and let people go without medical care!  Because that is the path to freedom!

"Look, I'm A Whiny Hypocrite Full Of FAIL, Okay?"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because love is not a victory march.

Ahh, fancy that.  The character Muir's written to be a hypocritical idiot with no redeeming qualities is a hypocritical idiot with no redeeming qualities.  Amazing.

"Well, Hun, English Is What... A Third Language For You, So Trust Me On This..."

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Franco Nero.

It's a running problem for Muir--Skye is supposed to be the worst person in the world--stupid, selfish, petty, and for Muir the capper, radically liberal.  However, thanks to Muir's hideously warped perceptions on how society ought to run, she generally comes across as a ruder version of the main cast, with things that are meant to highlight her stupidty highlighting Muir's.  Of course, Jan had the same problem, until she embraced her role as Fox News Liberal in the new order...

Charming As Always...

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

Ahh, yes.  More of the honest, upright conservative character that will stand firm against liberal decadence.

"Let The Night Of Long Knives BEGIN!"

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

Ahh.  Not only is Muir dragging out a meme years after its virtual death--he's revealing he really thinks circular firing squads are the way to go.  All one can say is 'go for it, man!' Arrogance, calls for party purity and that nice dash of homophobia--that's the wave of the future, man.

"We Should Just Exterminate The Brutes!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because that's the second largest arrow I've ever seen.

Ahh, yes, the parasitic blue states, that pay most of the taxes, and their foes, the upright red states, who get most of the benefits, in addition to having the high divorce rates, the high out-of-wedlock birth rates, and that raging meth problem.  But that's all "blue immigrants" apparently.

Yeah.  Not much of a dog whistle, is it...?

"Not Like Me. I'm All Growed Up."

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because history shows again and again Nature points out the folly of man.

Does Muir realize that line was even more of a showcase of Jack Nicholson's characters misogyny and flaws than it was a show of his wit? 

Of course not.  What am I saying?  It's Muir.

"Cause He'll Get Shot! And That Will Be Funny!"

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

But your kneejerk defense of guns is, of course, a sign of a free mind.  Right.  Muir.  Continuing not to get it.

"This IS Your Fault! Not Ours! NEVER OURS!"

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

Skipping over, what is doubtless merely a humorous joke about "banning" people--is Muir genuinely advocating armed guards in an ELEMENTARY SCHOOL?  Is he ignoring the fact that it was a GUN OWNER who was the first victim, and indeed, with one of her own weapons?  And that said weapon was used to kill children?  Muir's vile contortions can't disguise the fact that this is a pretty obvious rebuttal of every DAMN argument the gun nuts trot out in their favor.

Not that will keep them from trying, damn their oily black hearts.

"This Offends Me Now!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Kenny Rogers




I suspect we've once again fallen down the Right-Wing Rabbit Hole, where laws are transformed into sinister agents of oppression that only Right-Wingers can see.  Coming from Muir, who at various times, said that liberals were being big babies about torture, this is pretty rich.

And Here Muir Shows He's A Hip Dude, Who's Down With The Young People...

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because never reaching the end.

Ah.  Another "libertarian" screed dedicated to making defeat into victory through sheer willpower--based on a horrible computer ad from years past.  Because... well, it's Muir.

Saturday, December 15, 2012

"And By 'One Man', We Mean 'Many Men, Over A Period Of Years'!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because J. R. Capablanca.

Right, Muir.  Right.  When we say that something has to be done, we're just being evil dictators, fighting your awesome love of freedom.  That was demonstrated by supporting torture and feeling mildly queasy about wiretapping everything. 

Because that's the sad fact, Muir--you're the fascist, and if the day ever comes when our democracy falls into tyranny and slavery, you will be yelling and cheering in support of the new regime, which will hide behind talk of nationalism, tradition, and of course, freedom.  And all those guns of yours that you think make you a badass won't make difference.

"The Last Forty Years! Which Saw A Republican Domination Of Politics For Most Of It!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because I'm going to go see The Hobbit.

Ahh, Muir imagines that his characters' petty spite, ignorant blather and twisted self-righteousness makes them likable.  Especially when it's directed at their own family members.

Thursday, December 13, 2012

"Golly, Why Would Union Protesters Get Mad At A Bunch Of Paid Provacateurs? WHY?"

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

As Muir hyperventilates over what is CLEARLY A BIG DEAL, let us note he allows the entire issue that's brought this out, the latest "right-to-work" law passing in Michigan, to move to the margins.  Because you know--that tent. That's the important thing.

Keeping Up The Fight Against A Nation That Died Over Twenty Years Ago!

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because the Big Apple.

And once again, Russian Guyovitch talks about a nation that he should have the barest memories of, and makes comparisons to a nation that doesn't resemble it at all.

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

"Where Do They Get The Right To Say Our House Can't Be A Deathtrap, I Ask You?"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because there are issues here.

Right.  Because a bunch of suburbanites being made to keep from poisoning the ground water of an entire neighborhood with their gardens or face fines is exactly like the government arresting and internally exiling entire families of small farmers for belonging to a class the government MADE UP and the exact details of which keep changing based on said government's need to arrest people. 

Why do modern anticommunists show such low regard to the actual victims of communism?  Why?

Sunday, December 9, 2012

Yep! We're Just Like Soviet Russia. Only... Not.

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because watch Yul Brynner knock off Tony Curtis' wig.

You know, I think half the reason Muir keeps Russian Guyovitch around is so that he can have him say "nuclear wessels."

Saturday, December 8, 2012

Pfft... Like Majorities MATTER In A Democracy!

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Greek yougart.

Stupid Democrats, thinking that when they win elections it means something. Only REPUBLICANS and CONSERVATIVES can have mandates!

"Especially ME!"

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

By Muir's standards, this is a fairly coherant strip.  It's not very funny, or even very clever.  But the second panel actually connects to the first panel without the reader's having to play mental gymnastics.

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

"Us Smug White Guys Have Always Been A Persecuted Few."

It's the Day's Day of Days! Because Bernardo Tasso, Torquato Tasso's less crazy father.

Here's the world's smallest violin, playing for right-wing idiots like Muir, suffering from the great indignity of not automatically winning.

Monday, December 3, 2012

"She Ain't A Big Girl, Like Me!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Psalm 100.

The problem of course, is that even in the truncated, somewhat obnoxious form Muir puts them in, Skye's arguments are... well, correct.  Progressivism is not tyranny simply because Muir says it is, Muir's inaction during the Bush years when genuine steps at curtailing liberties were taken shows that he is almost utterly partisan in his convictions, Muir has demonstrated time and time again that he's pretty racist, with constant "birther"isms and efforts to paint Obama as the other, and finally, yes, Obama won the election, no matter how much Muir wishes otherwise.  Further Sam's objections are either wrong,--Skye isn't making a straw man argument--meaningless,--insisting that any claims of racism are simply "playing the race card" isn't a counterargument, it's an artless dodge--or petty--Sam's declaration of how childish Skye is is utterly childish itself.  Once again, Muir has fallen into his old habit of making his evil straw man right through his own ineptness as a writer.

It says something that Muir can't even do propaganda right.

"We IS The True Sons Of The Revolution!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because mama put my guns in the ground.

Well, let's give Muir credit here.  Many of the Founding Fathers were racist aristocratic white guys, so it's not a complete stretch to claim that Muir and his ilk represent them. 

But the truth is Muir's politics are more Tory than Revolutionary.  Or even Whig.

"Rumor Also Has It That She's A Martian!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Appalachian ginseng.

Wow, Skye is now the sympathetic one.  Which is a good example of how obnoxious Muir's cast is...
