Cue Laugh Track.

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because musical interlude.

And so ends another episode of the sitcom from hell...

"Well, It's Good We Can Mock Her Behind Her Back. And To Her Face."

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because heard it through the grapevine.

And remember, these are supposedly the good, functional ones.

"Ha! He Doesn't Understand He Shouldn't Be Doing Anything!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because groovy ghoulies.

You know, the ongoing war between Muir's fake Tyrant!Obama and his fake Moron!Obama gets really annoying when he uses both at once, and doesn't realize he's doing it. Muir wants Obama to be "The Great Threat To Murikan Liberty" AND a bumbling fool, simultaneously.  It's like trying to film Schindler's List with Col Klink in the place of Amon Goeth--you're not going to get the same sense of menace.   With the added burden of instead of being about the Holocaust, this film is about say, the hideous conspiracy to sap our bodily fluids through fluoride.

"Heh, Heh! And This Proves What A Loyal Patriot You Are!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because down at Palisades Park.

Sometimes I like to imagine that the strip is actually a psychotic delusion of Zed's, who's actually a brain-damaged alcoholic piece of trailer trash who pretends to be a veteran, even though the closest thing he ever saw to combat was the time the minimart clerk bitched him out about trying to lift a beer.

Hey, it makes more sense than the entire strip.

"Boy, Aren't They Sleazy? Eh?"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because my Idaho home.



Again, the inability to see the irony in this situation is almost oppressive  in its heaviness.

"Nudity Is Once Again The Answer To Our Problems!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because it's that careless disrespect.

Amazing the number of problems they solve with soft-core, which as this strip indicates is the weapon resorted to when the sacred gun cannot be used.

"Our Supercool Unaccountable Death Assassins Are So Much Better Than The Other Goverment Goons!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because this isn't Dallas--this is Nashville!

Is Muir remotely aware that his vision of the government resembles the late period Soviet Union, with bloated State Sec agencies duking it out in the service of their various factions, with his hero resembling a KGB apparatchik? 

Probably not.  For a man who goes on and on about how we're becoming a "Socialist" or "Fascist" Muir is quite fond of much of the machinery of an authoritarian state, provided it won't get turned on him.

"Yeah, We're Also Pedos!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because he's the universal soldier.

I'm reminded of Michael Crichton portraying a critic as a child molester.

But then, Crichton had some talent at first...

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

"Remeber, This Is An A-1 Priority Mission, Smearing These Hillbillies!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because fish sticks.

You know, it's amusing that Muir's plots have started to mirror his own inflated sense of self-worth--despite having failed to give any real motive for the President to really care about these yahoos, they face massive intrusive spying... because.  And not even cleverly, mind you, but like characters in a bad spy movie.

"Now Let's Go Watch 'Birth Of A Nation'!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Jackie Wilson.


Muir manages to tie up his racism, and his sexism into one package.  And it's Annoying Sniper Guy's to boot.  Freud would be having a field day with this.

Saturday, August 17, 2013

"See? They Do Tolerate Each Other, Sometimes!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Kiss of Death.

And so we move from assassination fantasies to the most obnoxious family in comics.

And remember, The Family Circus is still in publication, so that's saying something.

"And Then He Took And He Ate Up All Of Our Corn!"

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

Gee, wonder why you wouldn't want a couple of people who furtively talk about uprisings to have access to things that could be made into bombs...?

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

"He's A Demon!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because the Knight of the Burning Pestle.

Next up, a depiction of Obama with the number 666 on his forehead, followed by Muir stating 'just a joke'.

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

"We're Also Playing 'Freebird' 24/7!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Brown Lady of Raynham Hall.

So Muir's at last noticed his cast have devolved into rednecks.  Only without quite noticing it...

Monday, August 12, 2013

"More Of The Inferior Ones!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Little Darlin' where are you?

...You know, the sad thing is that Sam thinks Skye's problems are because she's a liberal, where it seems to be more that she's a sociopath, just like Sam...

Sunday, August 11, 2013

"Yeah, WE'RE The Good Guys Now!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because it is Shingen.  No doubt about it.

Sure, the South sucks up federal dollars like a sponge, and has all sort of unsightly class and race problems, but it's REAL AMURICA!

And remember, Muir is originally from New York.

Saturday, August 10, 2013

"This Is Clearly Unprecedented!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because fog's rolling in off the east riverbank.

Muir doubtless wishes for the halcyon days of W, where corporations knew their place in government...

Friday, August 9, 2013

"Dey Is Evil!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Fanny Price is underappreciated.

So, the next four years are going to be screaming about conspiracies and insisting that something big is happening, eh?

What fun.

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

"They're Talking About His Penis!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Mr. Darcy.

Of course, he still believes in a healthy bit of slut shaming, as this is all Skye's Fault for not Knowing Her Proper Place.  But he doesn't think she should be stoned to death or anything.

Monday, August 5, 2013

"And Osama Bin Laden Is ACTUALLY An Honored Guest At The White House!"

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

Right, Muir.  Right.  Everything is the opposite of how it seems and you are one of the few that knows the truth.  Down with the demiurge.

"Everyone Is Dummy But Me!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because hazard pay.

To bring the irony to a fine point--if the GOP has been a brainless zombie party for thirty years, that covers the Reagan years that Muir always used salute as a high-water mark.

But then, that involves pretending there's more at work here than sating Muir's sad little ego...

Friday, August 2, 2013

"Also Chocolate And Pickles!"

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

...And once again, Skye becomes sympathetic simply because she has no choice but to put up with these awful people.

Thursday, August 1, 2013

"Also, Soddom And Gommorah!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Shogun Date.

Yet another fine example of how for all they like to paint themselves as the tough guys, the Right has a tendency to act like a bunch of whiny bigoted kids...
