"Doonesbury" Vs. The Blog

Doonesbury creator G. B. Trudeau uses his comic strip today to attack bloggers. Ho-hum. I suppose I could scan his strip and post it here and get all outraged and everything. I could point out that Trudeau's tirade is a plea to invest all political speech in the hands of corporate interests, or that his "argument" could be used to shut down the Public Broadcasting System, or that similar stereotyping tactics were used to denigrate African Americans for decades and perpetuate institutionalized discrimination. But, the truth is, Trudeau was actually trolling for blog links, and, after all, political cartooning is just ne sais quoi...nineteenth century.
