    Katie Couric’s question has finally been answered.

    My local paper, the Chicago Tribune, isn’t carrying this week’s Doonesbury strips because of something not suited.

    This reminds me of the old chestnut about President Richard Nixon (“Tricky Dick” to the left wingers) walking across the Potomac to get from his presidential yacht to shore. The headline next day in the liberal media read “PRESIDENT CAN’T SWIM”

    This is what the Tribune literally said in this morning’s paper: “This week’s ‘Doonesbury’ does not meet our standards of fairness.” Their on-line paper, which touts its great selection of comics, doesn’t even list “Doonesbury” as a choice, as though they’ve stopped running it. That’s courage, isn’t it?

    Also, can anyone tell me how this strip is unfair and to whom?

    @Sorkh Razil — A totally misguided picture of liberals. I could care less what Sarah Palin says or does; she’s clearly not running. I don’t have any interest in hating on her or any members of the Republican party. And saracastically calling O’Bomber “the Anointed One” is rather silly, as no one really likes him anymore.

    “Hope and change”. I believe that as much as I did with O’Bomber. Once you get a Repub president, you’ll find they don’t care what happens to middle-class worker, or people with pre-existing medical conditions, or anyone for that matter.

    This will be a very entertaining week. Of course, Sarah Palin is worthless. The rightstream media have moved on to Representative Bachmann & Governor Perry. That will be quite the Teapublican ticket next year. It will garner a lot of votes when Perry announces that he will end Social Security and when Bachmann tries to explain her husband’s federal aid to “cure” homosexuality.

    notice that people of this persuasion are absolutely astounded that everybody doesn’t think the same way they do? what exactly is going to be the big change if you get Perry or Romney in the white house. how exactly does that ‘take back your country’? more tax cuts for the rich guy? more stomping on the little guy? or is it plain and simple that some people just can’t STAND for a non-white person to live in their white house?oh no! they will reply in horror. we LOVE colored folks. it’s all about states’ rights!

    I personally consider a book about Sarah Palin an unnecessary waste of paper or space on your electronic reader. If you’re a Palin supporter, you have no intention of buying this book. If you’re a critic or opponent, there is nothing in this book that will surprise you. That being said, here is Youtube link to the Couric question I referred to earlier:

    I don’t believe Sarah Palin is running for office, though I think it would be great if she would do so. If only… Also, she doesn’t deserve to be called “Governor” since you don’t get to keep the title if you abdicate the job.

    Who’s to say that Trudeau didn’t really get an advance copy, and is helping the author publicize the book via Roland?

    The problem is the folks doing Sarah’s “spin cycle” need to stop using hot water in their brain washing- and halt the shrinkage.

    A second week of obsession with an ex-governor? How about a week of presidential and vice-presidentail verbal gaffes, verbatim? Or a month of satire and parody on the current administration’s ties to America-hating radicals and revolurionaries? Now, that would be humor.

    President Obama is no more a socialist than is anyone who drives on the highways or relies on the F.D.A. to examine our food.

    The U.S.A. is a capitalist-socialist country. No one this side of Representative Paul & Governor Perry would want it any other way.

    Washington Post today – article says Trudeau and McGinniss partnered on this sequence, which will save GT a lot of grief in the courtroom later.http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/doonesburys-satirical-comic-strip-tease-with-mcginniss-and-palin-excerpts/2011/09/09/gIQABAXVLK_story.html

    Obama not only respects the U.S. Constitution, he taught Constitutional Law. He also was the first black president of Harvard Law Review. If you don’t like socialism, are you planning on using Medicare? Social Security? Are you going to refuse those things? How about public schools? How about emergency services? Street lights? Public roads? Let’s do away with all those things since they are all paid for by the government!

    Anyone who thinks Barack Obama is a Socialist is seventeen levels beyond ignorant. In the last presidential election, I voted for Brian Moore, the Socialist Party candidate. Obama’s policies are neo-fascist compared to Moore’s.

    btw: That “Sarah’s spin cycle” is ALL the Teapublicans. Evidence of “overdone” is that even the formerly rational ones are caught in it.

    The Tribume must be biased against Sarah! It’s a shame that I have to come to this site to read, what should rightfully be in the Chicago Trib!

    =v= Apparently the /Chicago Tribune/ thinks it’s unfair for Trudeau to print actual excerpts from the book when nobody has the book yet. Makes zero sense.

    Chicago Tribune refused to run this strip. Guess the PC Police went round and beat them up…

    The Chicago Tribune has censored this strip and Tuesday’s as well, claiming that they violate the Tribune’s “fairness” policy. This is a bogus claim. It’s more likely that the comics editor feared the wrath of the Tribune’s radical right wing libertarian publisher Samuel Zell. Heck, if these violate the Tribune’s “fairness” policy, then every Prickly City strip violates it in spades.

    The Chicago Tribune won’t run Doonesbury this week because it doesn’t meet their standard of fairness. I don’t agree. Comic strip seems fine to me!

    Only liberals consider the lies spewed forth by CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNBC to be the truth. More like, the truth as we want to present it. Spun until it no longer even resembles the truth. Like that game played by children where a person on the end whispers something to the person next to them and so on until by the time it reaches the end what is said doesn’t even resemble what was said originally. GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS UNBIASSED REPORTING ANYMORE. EVERYONE HAS AN AGENDA. RIGHT, LEFT, DOESN’T MATTER. THEY ARE ALL LYING TO YOU. GET IT?

    She really is dense if she’s entertained by “People” magazine on a flight of more than 5 minutes in length.
