The diverse opinions found in The Advocate are enjoyable, but the daily doses of “Mallard Fillmore” are an embarrassment. They don’t belong on the comic pages, and political cartoons play nicely with other political columns on the editorial pages.

Mallard’s way of being funny is boringly pathetic: the same one-a-day, everyday serving of bitterness about no one but President Barack Obama.

The Advocate should do better than this!
