In Related news a “Study” Found that Mike Lester makes No sense.
He IS the king of blather after all…
Is that TV tuned to Fox-NOT-News?
Republican officials have asserted that fossils of dinosaurs were planted there by [insert name of invisible deity here] as either a cosmic joke or as a litmus test of belief. Because proof to the contrary could not be produced, the Republican Party has introduced legislation to defund research in the sciences, especially Paleontology.
Meanwhile, butt-hurt “conservative” cartoonists continue doing their part for the Idiocracy.
This proves the theory that there are multiple universes. Now if only we could prevent leakage from the insane ones.
It’s a lie Mike. There has been no study that found masks to be ineffective.
Not sure what Lester saw that led to this cartoon, but, here’s some legit scientific research from the Mayo Clinic on the subject:https://newsnetwork.mayoclinic.org/discussion/mayo-clinic-research-confirms-critical-role-of-masks-in-preventing-covid-19-infection/
Did you hear about the peer-reviewed study done by Stanford University that demonstrates beyond a reasonable doubt that face masks have absolutely zero chance of preventing the spread of Covid-19? No? It was posted on the the National Center for Biotechnological Information government website. The NCBI is a branch of the National Institute for Health, so one would think such a study would be widely reported by mainstream media and embraced by the “science-loving” folks in Big Tech.

Must be OAN or NewsMax. Meanwhile, Alabama Conservatives are still claiming Yoga causes strokes, hysteria, and indoctrination to Hindu in children; as the 28 year ban on Yoga, hypnosis, meditation techniques and guided imagery exercises in public schools may be coming to an end.
At least he put “study” in «quotes».
Playing “make it all up” again Mike?
Yes, I know all about that study, I read it. The margins of error were so wide that it was ridiculous. That it was actually published was a travesty, it seemed to me to be a clear case of a journal wanting some publicity by publishing something that was certain to get attention.
That you endorse that nonsensical piece of crap shows just how far down the rabbit hole you are. Seriously? A range of 45% reduction to an increase of 21% in infection is something I would never have thought anyone would put up as a “meaningful” study. Of anything.
Would you go to a church that advertised “Your chances of going to heaven with us are in a range of 45% increased chance of going to heaven to 21% increased chance of going to hell”? Same thing.
Lester does ‘pro bono’ work for the “Know Nothing Party!”
Flagged the littleann’s fiction.
Ya really gotta wonder about the cognitive abilities or social outlook among those who dismiss empirical truth, even first-hand evidence of their own lying eyes, to embrace extreme right-wing lies and conspiracies.
I’ve noticed that such people, when finding you are not among the MAGA faithful, will clam up about any political or social discussion. Literally, what one of the Go Comics trolls said, “If you don’t believe tЯu☠p won re-election, then we have nothing to discuss.”
Reminds me of the riddle asking “What’s the first part of a ni88er joke?”
(pantomime looking around for any blacks in hearing range)
Substitute any minority race or culture you want in that “joke”. Regardless, the point is, they know it’s wrong, but do it anyway. Why? Makes them feel superior, being part of a weird dystopian cult? Us Against Them? Just sheer mean-spiritedness? Child abuse?
Lester seems to be channeling Payne with the inanity today.
Keep in mind that the previous president corrupted the CDC and other government medical and scientific agencies, literally putting political appointees in charge of posting “facts” on their sites.
In the case of the CDC and NIH, it was like a former five-star restaurant delivering an expensive three-course meal in the form of a half-defrosted supermarket pizza.
Point is, credibility was deliberately undermined in those agencies, for purely political reasons.
The Biden administration is slowly undoing the corrupt propaganda sabotage, but it’s taking time. Getting rid of De Joy, for example, means first getting rid of the political appointees on the postal board of governors, even while the so-called “postmaster”, with financial interests in UPS, is continuing to disrupt service by the USPS.
The Republican war on Science was relentless during their time in power. Short-term profit and a thirst for absolute power was their motivation, even it meant the death of hundreds of thousands of their constituents and the destruction of Democracy. And they are still deeply involved in those motivations, so Buyer Beware if you still want to vote Republican.
The article that is being passed around on Facebook falsely claims that masks are ineffective.
I like the way Snopes puts it.
“Did a ‘Stanford/NIH’ Study Conclude Masks Don’t Work? Really depends on how you define these words: Stanford, NIH, Study, Conclude, Mask, and Work. "
The world according to Mike Lester sure is a strange place.
this is getting pathetic mlester
Panel 2 is an offensive, appalling, unsubstantiated character attack & uses a throw away line that’s meant to be funny. However, if consider it a reference to the twice impeached Trump it is funny.
Don’t know about Stanford, but there was a Danish study done last year involving six thousand people showing there was a 0.3% difference between the masked and unmasked groups in catching the virus. Statistically insignificant. Do a search for “Danish coronavirus mask study”. THAT one was peer reviewed and published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
What a rube.
I don’t know if this is political or not. I don’t understand it so it’s hard to make any judgement on this strip.
I would like to hear from Mr. Lester.
