Did Dustin Rip Off Calvin and Hobbes?

Exhibit A: Today’s strip of “Dustin” - ones of the best comics being written today - compares Santa Claus to the Department of Homeland Security:

Yes, cute and timely, but twenty or so years ago, Calvin and Hobbes compared the jolly old Elf to the CIA with basically the same gag.

Exhibit B:
Coincidence? Plagiarism? Asynchronous parallel inspiration?

Conclusion: I am way too obsessed with comics.
