Gary Trudeau is offering ten thousand (that's 1 followed by four zeros!) for anyone who can say that they:
personally witnessed George W. Bush reporting for drills at Dannelly Air National Guard Base between the months of May and November of 1972
I think he was pretty pissed about that anti-French stuff. Check it out at:
Doonesbury @ Slate.MSN
I don't think anyone else, working in any contemporary medium, has managed to maintain such sharp intelligence and lightness of touch in satire as has Trudeau. The fellow is a true American treasure, and I think he'll take his place with Mencken and Twain.
And now, they just backed Bush for 4 more years all because it's good for business
If I remember correctly, Trudeau is/was Canadian
I first started reading (and buying) Doonesbury way back in the 70s. My sister has my old ones at present, they might just be worth something now!!
No, he's from New York. His grandfather was a famous doctor and ran a sanitorium for tuberculosis patients.
