At first it was just a serial that he had posted on a website. Then he added a subscription service for email delivery.

Now, it’s on Facebook too.

If his personal philosophy mirrors the storyline of his characters, he could be a long lost older Brother of mine.

One of the major differences is that although the lives of the characters in the Trudeau strip are invariably comfortable, they are often emotionally miserable. On the other hand, the characters in the Day by Day strip have suffered severe reversals in recent years, even going so far as having been invaded by a SWAT team, arrested imprisoned without trial. In spite of this, they remain optimistic.
Secondly, when the Doonesbury strip features a guest, Trudeau cannot seem to bring himself to do a caricature, often resorting to a disembodied voice emanating from a prop. If he does do caricature, he gets it wrong,for instance, when he drew Joe the plumber as being obese with an unruly mop of blond hair. when Chris Muir introduces someone well known, that person is drawn as realistically as anyone else in the strip.

Shooting the President in effigy?

When did that become funny, or even acceptable?

When an illegal alien won the office due to nearly openly admitted vote fraud and then proceeded to use the power of the office to destroy the country while blatantly aiding and abetting its enemies.

Since it is an effigy, it isn’t like shooting shooting, IYKWIM.

So it's acceptable if you can make up your own version of reality?

I think not.

Ergo, while I know what you mean, it's still unacceptable.

About the time that a movie featuring GWB's assassination got released during his (I believe, second) term. It was great entertainment, don'cha know?

It’s very well done, graphicly speaking. The artist understands page layout and 2d black/grey/white weight balance which unifies a piece. The artist understands human anatomy as seen from a low point of reference.(No, I’m not being inappropriate with that comment.: ) The robins egg blue background hue is inviting, yet threatening and eerie at once due to its vibrancy, due to it’s rebellious joy even with this subject. I studied graphic design and fine arts years ago (Carter Administration). I tell the kids I went to art school in 1974 BC BC meaning Before Computers. Always good to see the simple vehicle of a comic strip getting a new boost.

It always has been and better always be acceptable. That’s the whole point of the “in effigy” thing, to let the people in charge know you’re angry at them and things could get a bit more real if they don’t straighten up. It’s both part of our right to free expression AND our right to revolution.

Therefore, if liberals do it, it must be ok for conservatives to do it too.

We are *very* unalike in our views, you and I.

Legal and acceptable as part of mature political discourse are two very different things.

As far as your right to revolution, are you planning to violently overthrow the government of the United States of America? What about the right to do so of others, who hold different political views than you?

You will, of course, give your life to defend other American's rights, won't you?

It’s acceptable to me. Putting politicians on notice is a good thing.

Part of the right to revolution is the right to fight against the revolution. If a group comes up that is even bigger douches than the guys we’ve got then we can join the army and fight the rebellion. Or we could put together our own group, sit it out while they weaken each other and sweep in. Jefferson wanted lots of revolutions, that’s the point of the first half of the Bill of Rights, we’ve let him down.

I think you are trying to make the point that mocking Obastard should be illegal? You are on the wrong message board, troll.

The government we have now only superficially resembles the one laid out in the US Constitution and is far exceeding it's legal mandate in every corner of our lives.

So where does that put your calculus at?

Hoplite says it’s unacceptable (and possibly illegal) to mock Dear Leader. It may be time to shun the troll.

What makes us different from our opponents is not how we protest, but what we protest.

What makes us different is what we are fighting for.

Key word is “fight”.

If you aren’t willing to fight, you aren’t part of the solution. If you denigrate those willing to fight, you are helping our enemies... Not us.

Thank you.

I will behave in a civilized manner during a civilized debate. But if they do not wish to have any couth I can drop the civilized manner fairly quickly.

Obama has expressed nothing but hatred for me. Right back at you bud.
