    Doonesbury reams open carry

    http://www.doonesbury.com/

    The author, Gary Trudeau, shows his considerable talent in skewering just about anything that isn't well to the left of center. In this strip, the protagonist is a combat vet and the OCers are a bunch of rude yahoos, so Trudeau's man already has the upper ground, from which he lectures them on constitutional rights, effectively silencing them. This type of trenchant opinion-cartooning has won Trudeau many awards.

    Well, as the Hollywooders say, any publicity is better than no publicity. I don't think Trudeau's cartoon will sway millions of people one way or the other, but its clear that OC is on the national political map. Good work everybody!

    It seems to raise the question of "Having the Right" v "Being in the Right". Good fodder for (late night) Talk Radio.

    Does anybody REALLY care what Trudeau thinks or says?

    He became irrelevant when he started his incomprehensible vendetta against Frank Sinatra.

    Whats comical is the amount of individuals within the OC movement who are combat vets, compared to Trudeaus fantasy-based, driveling comic strip.

    Just sayin.

    Wasn't this strip a re-run from the Starbucks controversy days?

    Yeah, total rerun. Also, this particular strip has been discussed to death here on OCDO in about a dozen threads already.

    That, or I am having serious and dangerous flashbacks.

    Fear not, the flashbacks are to reality not fantasy.

    I'm not sure why anyone reads that comic. After perusing a few to get a feel for it I noticed it is not funny in the slightest and is a complete author filibuster. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...thorFilibuster

    Like myself, for one.

    ...compared to Trudeaus fantasy-based, driveling comic strip.
    Has Trudeau ever done a comic strip that was neither based in a world of fantasy nor driveling?
