It's time to remove the lame duck. I don't refer to George W. Bush, but rather to Mallard Fillmore. The strip's bombastic lopsidedness has hit a new low portraying our teachers as inept, lazy and ignorant. I greatly appreciate my children's teachers, dealing with 28-33 students in second and fourth grades. I know that most readers would agree that the teachers in this state deserve better.
I know the comic strip's "caustic conservatism" is supposed to strike a chord with the red crowd in Utah, but I don't know any who appreciate the lows it goes to trying to make a point. It isn't insightful enough for the editorial page, and it's not funny enough for the funnies.
The lamest of lame ducks needs to be brought to the end of his term.
