    After reading many posts on this and other strips, I’ve come to the conclusion that the best comic message board are the ones associated with Brooke McEldowney’s strips. Go to Pibgorn or 9 Chickweed Lane and you’ll see what I mean.

    @Clark Kent. When the only way ObamaCare could pass constitutional muster was to have it declared a tax, the honorable thing to do would have been to scrap it and try to gets Congress, and the American public, to accept it as a tax hike. You didn’t see Obama or any other Democrat consider such an “honorable” course of action.

    If Katrina happened on Obama’s watch, Option 3 would be to ask not to be bothered till after his 18 holes were finished.

    Katrina did happen on Obama’s watch; it was called Sandy and this what Republican Chris Christie said earlier this week, “The president has kept every promise that he made."

    This, and Obama’s reaction to the West, Texas explosion shows that he understands what Reagan and the Bushes never did:
    The President is the President of the ENTIRE country, not just the parts that voted for him!

    If McEldwney had had comments blocked when I first started following Pibgorn, I probably would have given up on it. The comments told me who the characters were and what they were doing.

    You are right, of course, but Doonesbury has been a political strip most of the time since its inception during the Vietnam War. The McEldowney strips frequently make biting social comments. All three are among my favorites.

    I read Doonesbury for the posts, I read Dilbert because I don’t have to work any more.

    People with multiple personalities should be able to flag themselves.

    Someone seems terrified of taking on the current WH resident who does not speak Austrian, visited 57 states, and had hundreds killed in Mexico with illegal assault weapons.

    The Posse Comitatus Act prevents the President from sending troops in unless the Governor of the state in question asks for help. The reason Katrina went so badly was a trifecta of storm damage (major damage to bridges and railroads), bad decisions of Mayor (delaying the evacuation), and ineffective communication from the Governor (failed to get the aid request to the White House in a timely manner).
    President Bush was presented with the idea of invoking the “Insurrection Act” which would have allowed him to send in troops but Democrats felt that the President would have been taking advantage of the situation to embarrass a Democratic mayor and a Democratic Governor.
    The last time the Insurrection Act was invoked was in 1992 for the “Rodney King Riots”.
