The Poor Little Duck Who's Rich In Luck
in "Better Satire, Please"
Hound: ...and so I decided to run for president myself!
A Fundraiser in Houndsville's Swanky "Rat's Mouth" Neighborhood - 
Hound: After all, who better to lead America's economy than a successful businessman? 
Hound: Of course, I'll never get the votes of 47% of Americans!
Hound: They don't pay taxes, and I'll never convince them to take responsibility for their lives!
Lucky Ducky: Are you done with your dessert? 
Old Hound: Yes, yes. 
Hound: They're totally dependent on the government!
Lucky Ducky: Pardon me. 
Hound #2: More wine, please.
Lucky Ducky: Right away. 
Hound: They feel they're victims and entitled...
Critic Hound: STOP! THIS HAS GONE TOO FAR!!
Hound: Huh? 
Critic Hound: As a COMICS CRITIC, I must say, this satire in this comic strip is OVER-THE-TOP!
Critic Hound: A billionaire candidate whose business success involved massive layoffs, and who pays a ridiculously low tax rate??
Critic Hound: And he denigrates those too POOR to pay federal income tax as entitled MOOCHERS?!

Horse: Can the car-elevator guys go home?
Critic Hound: WHO'S WRITING THIS STUFF?!!
