    I wonder how the twins are doing.
    I wonder if Zonk and Zip laid in a good crop.
    I wonder if Honey’s gonna make another comeback.
    I wonder if Walden football will go independent.
    Starting Sunday, I won’t have to wonder any more.

    Since my fellow Doonesbury commentators say that GBT only attacks Republicans, here is a subtle criticism of that little known (in the UK at least) Republican, Michael Dukakis:

    Wow! As recently as 1988! Just casually flip back 25 years and there it is, plain as day! Gosh and golly! Obviously all that strum and drang about Trudeau being biased is a total canard!

    Good one, Capn – strum – I wonder what that means.

    From the Doonesbury site on Slate:
    Editor’s Note:
    Funny story. New daily strips were supposed to begin on Monday, September 9th, but late last week GBT, still immersed in writing the political sitcom “Alpha House,” sent an apology to client newspaper editors, admitting that he had “hit the wall” and will not be able to get back to the dailies for another 10 weeks. The good news is that new Sunday strips will resume, as planned, on September 8th — this coming weekend. Enjoy.

    Of course everybody knows it’s the DEMOCRATS who depend on voter suppression.

    Democrats want to rock the vote, not block the vote! We could accept the idea that the GOP has as much power as it has if only there were really a representative majority of the population who would indeed vote!

    I’m confused. Can someone point out where it’s written that Trudeau has some obligation to be neutral or non-partisan?

    If Rick knew how to hack into computers and other electronic devices, he might actually get that story.

    @StCleve72

    Nope
    besides, why should he be neutral?
    we may be uncertain of some things, but we usually form opinions eventually

    An opposite but yet related practice to voter suppression is ballot box stuffing.

    I knew one lady who actually believed it didn’t matter if ten thousand illegal votes were counted as long as her one vote was also counted.
    (I’m not saying either ever happens, just that the result would be the same.)

    @montessoriteacher

    Please consider the actual meaning (or lack thereof) of “rock the vote.”
    Meanwhile griping at people for not voting is griping at them for voting for none but trusting you to pick wisely for them.
    .
    Just as a mental exercise, I wonder what life would be like if voters could give their proxy to others such that they could let you vote their vote for them or they could let others vote it. It should improve total voting but also yield open vote selling.

    @DavidHuieGreen

    And I know a whole party full of people who actually believe that it doesn’t matter if ten people who had the right to vote were prevented from doing so, as long as one person who didn’t have that right was stopped from voting. Wacky, no?
