Right-Wing Quack-Up: Mallard Filmore Cartoonist in DUI

The Indianapolis Star reports that Bruce Tinsley, creator of crusading right-wing waterfowl journalist Mallard Filmore, was arrested earlier this month for DUI. According to the Star–which refers to the cartoonist, in its house style, as “Hoosier Edward Bruce Tinsley”–it was Tinsley’s second alcohol-related arrest since this summer.

In strips immediately after the midterm elections, Mallard Filmore described defeated Republicans as “sleeping off your benders” and having “spent like drunken Democrats.”
