    It is truly a shame, what has become an almost totally right wing rag was once a relatively well balanced somewhat amusing cartoon series.

    I suppose you and the other ultra conservatives also hate Doonesbury just as much!

    Oh well, so much for relative objectivity!!

    Right…
    The guy who killed off American jobs and sent them to China and who now thinks a quarter million dollars is middle income, and the guy who can’t do simple arithmetic.

    Although Scott Stantis has never hidden his conservative outlook, I’ve usually found him to be more objective than most politically oriented cartoonists (left or right)


    Never forget that the nature of cartoon characters is to be humorously exaggerated and distorted

    Reason my son got out of the marines. Before they can attack taliban, al queda or other insurgents (even if they are being fired upon) they have to say over a loud speaker asking them if they want to surrender.(so much for surprise) Also every prisoner is asked, “do you feel you have been mistreated in anyway”? If they say yes the marine is grilled about what he did. This was set in place by the obama adminstration. But yet you still try to defend and plan to vote for obama. You need to be honest with yourself and admit the obama you voted for is not the obama you got.

    Well I’m sure the world will soon get the memo and make sure you never see a differing opinion. Doonesbury is occasionally funny to me, and occasionally offensive. People gotta look at what the other guys say, you might change your perspective on occasion.

    Does this mean Winslow is going to join the Obama campaign, or will he stay loyal to the Senator?

    Get off your high horse, there is plenty of both sides. If Winslow had gotten to him first, he would have an Obama/Biden sticker. I notice that when a strip has a left wing lean nobody says anything, but if there is a bit of conservitism it becomes a right wing rag. So much for tolerance. Hypocrisy, thy name is Liberalism

    Try reading the comments on the Doonesbury web page or any of the “liberal” editorial cartoon web pages. There are tons of comments about how the writer is lying or has swallowed the ‘Kenyan usurper’s koolaid".

    I just had trouble understanding Stantis’ point of all this. It just wasn’t funny either.

    Sneaky . Carmen is sneaky just like the GOP politicians.
    Relyping to above, I haven’t figured out if there is a point, but the little girl and fuzzies are cute.

    I find Prickly City to be much less one-note and dogmatic than other conservative comics out there, like the rarely funny Mallard Fillmore or the utterly miserable Diversity Lane. Even Day By Day, which sometimes humanizes its liberal characters, is weighed down by an off-putting insular writing style that piles on the obscure references thicker than marmalade. Prickly City actually sometimes tries to humanize everybody and laments the broken dialogue in our politics, which is refreshing.
    Which is why it’s all the more damniing to me when a guy like Stantis, who really should know better, falls for the shallow, bumper-sticker nonsense that the right wing tries to pass off as constructive dialogue.
