"Our Cowardice, Paranoia, And Blind Panic Are Signs Of Strength!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Orson Welles is the Shadow.

I don't know what's worse--the mad misinformation about Ebola that Muir mindlessly repeats, or the continuing potrayal of the doctors and nurse who are willing to go into a plague zone to treat an illness as feckless liberals who will kill us all through.  It's all really the most dramatic contrast between the myth of himself that Muir likes to believe and the... more pathetic reality that we've seen in a while.

"And Don't Forget... The REPTILIANS!"

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

Muir is really, REALLY pushing this crazy conspiracy theory.  I suppose it gives a great narrative if the Repubs underpeform this year.

"We're Absolutely Sure This Isn't Us Being Paranoid!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Danny Boy.

Remember--the only way Dems can possibly win is if they cheat.  Because otherwise, that would mean Muir's philosophy isn't as transcendently right as he imagines...

"She's The Regular Target Of Our Five Minute Hates!"

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

And the children remain off-panel to avoid the fact that Muir can't draw kids.

"The World Is Prejuidiced Against White Folks!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because elaborate hoax.

When I was a very young man, the essential wisdom of Frank Zappa's noting that while not black, there were a whole lotta times he wished he could say he wasn't white, struck me.

And at times like this, I say that myself.

Women Just Love To Hear The Sam Eliot Clone Say Things!

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because James III.

...

And then a bear lunges out of the trees.  Carrying a power tool.

"It HAS To Be A Plot! HAS TO BE!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Magdalene of Brandenburg.

And you just know that Muir is simply transplanting his reaction to his imaginary Obama.  It's what makes it so... fun.

"By Declaring Things Stupid, They Become Stupid! Automatically!"

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

This sort of reminds me about the endless offense over studies about cow flatulence.  Which sound ridiculous until you realize how damn many of the things there actually are, and how they release enough gas to play a part in global climate change, and how, oh, yes, it's our decisions to raise them that causes all this.  And suddenly those 'silly' studies don't seem silly, but... well, kind of important.

This is a classic play by the self-proclaimed champions of small government--because science rather frequently involves doing things that sound silly if you describe them without any context, it's easy to use a few of the odder studies and experiments to make it sound as if tons of money are being blown on frivolous things.  That these studies are typically a rather small amount of the budget--a much smaller amount than the military spending many seem strangely fond of--is immaterial.  It sounds good to them, and so it must be true.

"Soon We Shall Be Free Of The Leeches, So We May Leech Better!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Rod Steiger.

Of course, all the times Damon and Jan have enjoyed her father's wealth are completely justified.

And remember, the US is now an evil socialist dystopia!  Like in Atlas Shrugged! Only without the magic railroads. 

Among other things.

"This Proves She Is An Evil Jerk! And Not A Good Jerk, Like Us!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because I will twine with my mingles and wavy black hair.

As usual Muir's ongoing efforts to make Skye the worst person imaginable are harmed by the fact that he has no idea how to make a character who isn't the worst person imaginable to anyone who approaches a normal psyche.

"Think We Can Recycle The Same Panel Again?"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because be happy you have a 120 year lease.


Ahh, the high quality work that make DbD... what it is.

Saturday, October 11, 2014

"Ahhh! We're All Gonna Die!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Lady From Shanghai.

Clearly, Obama has failed until we hear the borders have been shut, and potential Ebola victims warded away with gunshots...

"Since They Won't Make With The Full Cray-Cray, They're LAAAAADIES!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because fear kills the mind.

I wait for the day when Republicans are viewed as sissies for not bludgeoning Democrats unconscious with canes in the chamber.

It'd be the ultimate sign of the 180 degree turn the Republicans have  made in their existence...

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

"What Important Things Did The Hubble Telescope Ever Discover Just By Looking, Hmmmm?"

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

I don't know what's worse--the awful attempt at philosophical depth, or the fact that the punchline doesn't connect to the start of the strip...

Monday, October 6, 2014

"See! They Were Just LYING About Hating War!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because the vanishing of Ambrose Bierce.

Apparently whoever complied that tape didn't look very hard...

Sunday, October 5, 2014

"They Are Diseased Vermin! Hiss! Hiss!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Emerald Isle.

There's nothing quite like the sight of a blustering coward convincing himself that his panic is courage.

Saturday, October 4, 2014

"Yes, A Bunch Of Normal Guys. With A Billionare Friend."

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because shouldn't talk about it.

Sometimes this strip reads like a less competent version of Lil' Orphan Annie, with strippers.  I'm serious.  It's got the same Democrat-bashing and the wealthy deus ex machina character.

"Bad 'Star Wars' Jokes! That's What We Need!"

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

Well, now we know that the change in format isn't going to mean a change in quality.

It's still dire.
