    Apparently, internet comment pages are filled with would-be radio hosts.

    Nah. For all his quirks, Calvin is basically a decent human being.

    You can read this as Fox or NPR, whichever one rubs you the wrong way. It might be nice if you could get just the news/facts without the commentary, but the world doesn’t work that way anymore, and it probably never did work that way.

    And a generation later the result is the Tea Party.

    Wow, Calvin has just perfectly describes obama! Easily the most divisive President in history.

    But if “military invasions” are so mad & evil in your mind, then Rush & Cheney should be heroes in your mind for refusing to serve ‘certified chicken hawks’. Now you can’t have it both ways.

    Whether it’s Fox or MSNBC, Bill O’Reilly or Keith Olbermann. They’re all the same. They’re all far more interested in spouting divisive rhetoric than actually engaging in objective reporting.

    I thought I smelled something when I booted up my computer this morning, and couldn’t quite identify it, but here it is: political jargon from both sides. It always stinks.

    But at least I got to see another great C&H. I should know better than to read the comments (or to comment — now I’ve got it all over me, too).

    Not that any of the comments on various comic strips are ever opinionated, divisive, self-righteous or condescending. We don’t do that here, do we.

    There used to be good storytellers on radio. My grandfather used to listen to one on WOR back in the 1960’s, just before bedtime. I don’t remember the guy’s name, but he had some great stories.

    This is exactly the kind of strip that makes me ambivalent about the second half of Calvin & Hobbes’ run. To me it’s heavyhanded and preachy, too much of a transparent soapbox with too little character standing between the reader and the author tract.

    And this is coming from someone who agrees with this (and most of Watterson’s other observations) about 95 percent of the time.

    Dave M: Obermann on MSNBC? Isn’t there some requirement that discussions at least be within a few months of current? MSNBC isn’t permitted to so much as mention “Green Party”, “Socialist Party”, and rarely “Libertarian Party”. They are just another Republicrat propaganda source.

    When this comic was published, Limbaugh was a nobody. Your only real major talk radio personalities in that era on a regional level were Alan Berg, Morton Downey, Jr., and Howard Stern. Berg and Downey were notorious for berating callers who disagreed with them.

    In the Peanuts strip I posted above, Charlie Brown talks about encouraging the exchange of different ideas. Sadly, it sounds out of date compared to the attack mode that is so common today.

    It is funny why liberal talk radio shows never seem to make it, I wonder why that is?

    One might say the Huffington Post, though the media type is not the same and their reach is not as wide. I will say that their believability is about on par – or at least they are about as slanted. And I tend to score about as liberal and anti-authoritarian (libertarian) as one can get (The Political Compass), meaning that I prefer that even the ideology I agree with to be truthful.

    Calvin has an imagination that includes space travel, dinosoaurs, physics, time travel, and NEW concepts and ideas, not always the same old garbage, and he doesn’t use hate speech, like nether, Rush, Savage, Rev. Al, Huckabee, or the other stuck in the muds, not even Pat Roberston:

    Calvin just described Rush Limbaugh. I notice the original copyright date on the strip is 1995, Watterson knew what was coming.

    Calvin could be Mark Levin. They both make selfish points and have the same vocal octave.

    Even though C&H is apolitical 99% of the time, Bill Watterson did start out as a political cartoonist for the Cincinnati Inquirer.

    Anyone who listens to Limbaugh more than one week will be converted to conservatism. Leftist-elitism is so 19th century.
