MA: Globe Ready to Cancel "Mallard Fillmore"

Obnoxious liberals are crowing about the Boston Globe's likely upcoming decision to cancel a rare offsetting voice in the paper, the Mallard Fillmore comic strip.

The already exceptionally slanted New York Times outpost has utilised their "ombudsman" (read: liberal apologist) to break the news to readers.

Jeff Jacoby, watch your back.

Reactions so far from open-minded Globe-reading liberals has been predictable:

(Boston Globe- Letters)

I DISAGREE with ombudsman Christine Chinlund about "Mallard Fillmore" ("Much ado about a duck," op ed, Feb. 21). Since the Bush administration uses obfuscation and doublespeak to explain itself, Bruce Tinsley's strip is the only voice in print that actually tells us what the real conservative agenda is. It consists of dirty water and air, no help for the needy, medical insurance only for the rich, a gift to corporate America of the National Park system to mine and pollute, ridicule of any viewpoint other than its own, insistence on Calvin Coolidge's belief that what's good for business is good for America, and a relentless assault on the Social Security insurance protection for our elders.
