Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

I didn't find this Doonesbury offensive. In fact, I figured it as flattering evidence that Garry Trudeau reads this blog. But Instaman seems to have gotten a bit irate over it. (So did Jim Treacher, whose take was unfair but funny.)
Tom Tomorrow has also noticed that the new strip is unimpressive.
Update: Jim Treacher thinks that the term 'irate' is an excessive description of his Doonesbury satire linked above, and on reflection I agree. Also Dan Drezner has been commenting on the strips. Oddly, although Dresner seem to lean to the right, our tastes in strips, even those with political interests, is fairly close. Like me, he admires Boondocks and the late, great Calvin and Hobbes, seems to like the emphatically liberal Bloom County, and finds Zippy incomprehensible.
