Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for October 12, 2008
Mark: Five colleges in six years? Man, life happens a lot to that woman! Hey, folks! Have you been wondering why Republicans have suddenly stopped talking about "family values"? Could it be because a divorced John McCain chose as his running mate a stay-at-work mom who hid her last, unplanned pregnancy... and who has a pregnant, unwed teenager with a self-described "&$@@ redneck" of a boyfriend who "doesn't want kids"... and an ex-brother-in-law who tasered her nephew, and a husband with a DUI who loves his country so much he joined a secessionist party? All of which leaves the GOP clinging to one remaining family value - the shotgun wedding! All previous values are null and void because "life happens!" Next up - a rebuttal from my gay, Republican ex-husband! Chase: Hey! My private life is off-limits!
