Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for September 23, 2007
George W. Bush: Sigh... I miss Turd Blossom. I don't know who to trash anymore! Interrupting anything? Man: No, no, sir, join us, please! Man: We were just reminiscing about Karl's greatest hit jobs... my favorite was during your first race for governor - the rumor that Ann Richards was a lesbian! Woman: That was good, but it can't touch the McCain smear in South Carolina that saved your nomination! How about the swiftboating of John Kerry? So masterful, it became a verb! Man: Yes, but not as purely Rovian as the Max Cleland smear! Who but Karl could re-define a disabled war hero as a sniveling defeatist? Bush: Ann Richards was a lesbian? Man: No, no, sir... Unless you want it back in play. Man: Just say the word, sir.
