Scratch An Angry, Lying Conservative Hypocrite....
...find an alcoholic in serious denial?
Hoosier Edward Bruce Tinsley, creator of the conservative comic strip Mallard Fillmore, was arrested in Columbus Dec. 4 and charged with operating a vehicle under the influence -- his second alcohol-related arrest in less that four months, according to the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department. Tinsley, 48, who lives in Columbus, had a blood-alcohol level of 0.14 -- almost twice the level at which an Indiana driver is considered intoxicated. He posted $755 bond. On Aug. 26, Tinsley was arrested for public intoxication, according to the sheriff's department.This kinda makes me wonder if Michael "Savage" Weiner and certain other similar right-wing screechers are themselves overly fond of the grape. (I know that a certain banned commenter definitely is.) They all share a certain meanspiritedness and willingness to decieve that is the hallmark of certain kinds of boozehounds. Oh, and did I mention that Tinsley just LOOOVES to do strips mocking Ted Kennedy over Chappaquiddick? Hypocrisy, thy name is Tinsley. (h/t to Atrios)
The highest level of service he could provide to the community is not drawing Mallard Fillmore.
