* AmbiguouslyJewish: Mr. Noseworthy strikes one as rather this way, what with his long nose, frizzy hair, and spouting of leftist intellectual gobbledygook.

''Mallard Fillmore'', by Bruce Tinsley, is about an anthropomorphic duck journalist and the struggles he finds in dealing with a liberal world. It started out as a non-political strip for ''The Daily Progress'', which had asked Tinsley to create a mascot strip for their entertainment page. After several rejections, the eponymous duck won out and the strip was launched. After Tinsley expressed his conservative political views, he found himself out of a job. He successfully sold the strip to ''The Washington Times'' in 1992 and eventually got it syndicated nationally by King Features Syndicate.

* StrawmanPolitical: There's a few stock characters that to serve this purpose and appear only in strips covering their topic (education, feminism, race, etc.). Outside of these, Noseworthy often plays the role of the smug, line-toeing liberal for Mallard to easily criticize. He's also Mallard's boss, but this is really not an issue outside of the initial strips in which Mallard is hired by him.

* WithUsOrAgainstUs: Mallard once pre-empted a professor from invoking GodwinsLaw over then-President UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush's use of the phrase by remarking that the professor's generation made [[NotSoDifferent "You're either part of the solution or you're part of the problem."]] a famous rallying cry.
* WorthyOpponent: Chantel, a newscaster who works with Mallard. She's the token non-straw-liberal and appears in the strip on the rare occasions Tinsley agrees with the liberal argument or wants to call conservatives to task over something. However, she started out as a much more empty-headed criticism of liberals like the rest of the cast and the official comic page from King Features still insinuates Mallard only barely tolerates her opinions.

* StrawFeminist: This strip has a recurring one, and she's an ugly and bitter hag. Then again, Tinsley also regularly features a [[BrainlessBeauty brick-brained, glamorous model]] named [[MeaningfulName Purge Daley]], showing that he at least doesn't discriminate against HollywoodHomely women.
** [[MissingMom While she never appeared]], Dave's ex-wife qualifies, seeing that she divorced him for naming their son after Rush Limbaugh.

* {{Parody}}: SomethingAwful started a trend of rewriting every strip in YeOldeButcheredeEnglish to hammer home how incredibly ass-backwards and regressive Tinsley's views are. They call it [[http://fowlherald.tumblr.com/ Ye Fowl Herald]].

* IntrepidReporter: Technically Mallard, though we don't actually see him doing anything suggesting he researches or sniffs out stories - just that he reports on them.
