The Anti-American Duck

As a fifty-year-old comic book reader, I am telling Mallard Fillmore (July 8 comics) that gay comic book characters (like the new Batwoman) are nothing new. Just ask Northstar, Pied Piper, the couple Shrinking Violet and Lightning Lass, the Rawhide Kid, or Rainmaker (lipstick lesbian, yow!). I'll believe you are an "actual conservative journalist" when you do some research.

And you are not a conservative either. Your dress code is Cartoon-first, America-a-distant-second: No pants! Think of the children! Batwoman wears a tight outfit, but she has the decency to cover up!

Mallard, stop sitting on the couch with your feet pointed towards me. Yuk!

And DC Comics, hire a good writer. Batwoman locking lips with Catwoman could be hot, but it won't sustain a story.

(Sent this to the Mercury News also. And I put it here so it won't go to waste.)

Liberals are hogs too.

The July 5 Mallard Fillmore comic says that "(liberals) are calling for federal legislation requiring that liberal books be more popular" because Ann Coulter is "hogging" the New York Times best-seller list.

Unlike that duck, I googled for a few minutes and found liberal books that hogged said list:

Mark R. Levin's "Men in Black: How the Supreme Court Is Destroying America"
Glenn Greenwald's "How Would a Patriot Act?"
Al Franken's "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right"
Michael Moore's "Stupid White Men"
Jim Hightower's "Thieves in High Places"
Joe Conason's "Big Lies"
Molly Ivins and Lou Dubose's "Bushwhacked"

Seems that a duck, having a brain the size of a marble, won't do research.

P.S. I just sent this to the San Jose Mercury News. Maybe they won't print it, but I will.
