"They Are So Mean To Him!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because and in his hurry to carry the news, he bent his breast and ran, and when he came to the broad millstream, he took off his shoes and he swam.

 As usual, Muir depicts his "good guys" as whiny wimps while imagining he's depicting them as tough guys.  And is surprise that a terrible president gets a lot of bad news stories, who'd a thunk it?

"He Is Truly A Rugged And Bwave Individual!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because and a servant who was standing by and hearing what was said, he swore Lord Donald he would know before the sun would set.

Well, at least Muir's got a new Trump picture.  If not an actual new Trump cartoon, because it's the usual 'Hail the Leader' glurge.

Sunday, April 28, 2019

"They Clearly Want To Use People's Skulls As Footstools! And They Are Mad To Want That!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because "But if I am Lord Donald's wife, Lord Donald's not at home. He is out in the far cornfields bringing the yearlings home."

See, this is the thing about the right-wing's projection--like any drug addict, they have to keep upping the dose to get the high.  Which in the case of the average right-winger means leaving behind the real world to live in the bubble.

"My Answer To Your Objection Is Rhubarb, Rhubarb, Rhubarb."

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because "Oh, I can't come home, I won't come home and sleep with you tonight! By the rings on your fingers I can tell you are Lord Donald's wife!"

And the game goes on.

"And That Is Clearly Awful!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because "Come home with me, little Matty Groves, come home with me tonight! Come home with me, little Matty Groves, and sleep with me till light!"

 If it feels like you're being gaslit by Muir here, well, you are.

I defer to Jean-Paul Sartre...

"Never believe that anti‐Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly since he believes in words. The anti‐Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument has passed."

And Now Back To The Wacky Woman Robot Show.

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because and there she saw little Matty Groves, walking in the crowd.

 And now a break from the fascism--bad sitcom humor.

"We Are So Defiant In Our Fast Food And Hat Choices!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because and when the meeting it was done, she cast her eyes about. 

 Modern American conservatism is telling yourself your persecuted for acting like an ass, while simultaneously imagining that you could, if you wished, slaughter those who dislike you with impunity.

"I Mean, Is It Fair For Them To Arrest Mafia Dons For Doing THEIR Jobs?"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because a holiday, a holiday, and the first one of the year. 

"Arrested for doing his job".  That he volunteered for, and that is illegal.  

But yeah, good to see that the hellspawn are becoming good little indoctrinated "national anarchists".

...Oh, Ever-Loving God.

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because but that's the thing--once the series had codified it, Dark Force was pretty much destined to show up in some form or another for every future game as the ultimate evil.




Well, now I need several gallons of brain bleach.

Saturday, April 20, 2019

Well. Not The WWII Fascist Apologism I Was Quite Expecting, But...

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because now that fourth game also adds a lot to Dark Force's lore, explaining what the hell we've been fighting in the last three games and introducing the Eldritch Horror Behind the Eldritch Horror.  It does a pretty good job, actually.




That declaration from Muir that the Third Reich wasn't so bad seems to be coming closer and closer...

Friday, April 19, 2019

"Now Let's Do Racism AND Nudity!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because and then the fourth one, it starts out "Well, we're fighting this cult leader and... oh, wait, he's worshiping Dark Force."

You know the nude pictures of Samurai Mom just get worse and worse, to the point where I'm starting to think we're dealing with some sort of unacknowledged complex.

Thursday, April 18, 2019

"Well, Enough Racism! Now For Nudity!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!   Because then it's, "So the bad guys are a faction on this generation shi--no, wait, it's Dark Force."

Given that this means dropping the Nazism for a strip, I'm almost relieved to see another one of Muir's awful attempts at depicting breasts.


Wednesday, April 17, 2019

"But Of Course, I'm Not A Nazi," Said The Nazi.

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because after that, it's "so I'm fighting a mad supercomputer--no wait, it's Dark Force.  And um... a bunch of guys in capes."

Well, he seems to have hit a new plateau of racism for the moment.  Of course, that might be because the only way to go further would be "You know, the Third Reich wasn't SO bad"...

When At First You Fail At Humanity, Fail, Fail, Fail Again.

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because I mean, first game, he's at it.  "We're fighting the Emperor! No, wait, the real bad guy is... um, Dark Fals?  What?"




I'll take 'Doubling Down' for $600, Alex.

When Your Attempted Refutation Proves Your Opponents Right, Take 1017

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Dark Force from the Phantasy Star series out-Ganons Ganon.



And a critical fail in the FIRST. FUCKING. LINE.



I am in awe. 

Sunday, April 14, 2019

"Venezuela!" Mic Drop On Your Own Foot.

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because three maids a-milkin' they did go.

Well, that's all nuance and understanding I expect from Muir on socialist politics.

Saturday, April 13, 2019

"Hey, Remember When We Were All Pro-War?"

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

It says something that the thing that switched Muir from 'warmonger' to 'isolationist' is a desire to kill brown-skinned people closer to home.

Friday, April 12, 2019

"Just Get With The Illegal Actions, Sir!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because #9 Dream.

It says something that the only thing that strains Muir's admiration for Trump is a feeling that Trump isn't racist enough.

Wednesday, April 10, 2019

"The FILTHY Subhumans!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because formerly of this area.

I'll be fair--it's completely likely that Muir made something that looks like an awful antisemitic joke without realizing that's what it looks like, because the idea that many lawyer jokes are thinly-veiled antisemitic jokes would never occur to him.

Another Effortless Triumph Against The Untermenschen.

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

Well, that plotline stopped almost as quickly as it began.

Makes you wonder if Muir got bored, or had something else he wanted to check out.  Guess we'll see tomorrow.

And probably wish we didn't.

Saturday, April 6, 2019

"Yes, They Are Repulsive, Aren't They?"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because crossword puzzle.



When Muir's bigotry and his sexism go hand in hand, the results are always... special.

Friday, April 5, 2019

"Obviously, We Should Be Shooting These People!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because let the spinning wheel turn.

You know, Muir's narcissistic attitude towards people facing real persecution is one of his more loathsome qualities.

And he's got a bunch of them.

Thursday, April 4, 2019

"Evil Liberals! Not Simply Killing The Inferior Hordes!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because the sex is about the same, but the dishes keep piling up.

Because the simple fact that lawyers are involved PROVES it's an evil plot.  It just does.

Wednesday, April 3, 2019

"Clearly, This Is An Evil Liberal Plot!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Silver Nail, on the fiddle.

Apparently, Muir thought building the wall obviously wouldn't involve any of the things that it would necessarily have happen.

Tuesday, April 2, 2019

A Long Line of Cars.

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because down by the river.

Thrill at the visual tedium of drawings of static objects.

Monday, April 1, 2019

Time For A New Set Of Mooks.

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Parcheesi-type games.

Oh, it's time for the umpteenth "Compound-dwellers against the gubmint" storyline.  Let's see how many they kill this time.
