Just wondering… are newspapers in the deep south — particularly Alabama and other “target” states — running Doonesbury this week?

Quoted on the Doonesbury site (apparently Trudeau didn’t understand it either):
“Coming here today was like coming to Doonesbury. The system has failed my daughter.” - Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael, following her sentencing to 90 days in jail

Related to our recent discussion about when mainstream comics will begin using the word “ass,” today’s “Sergeant Bitch” Doonesbury strip and an article about same.
Of course, we pretty much determined that Doonesbury gets a pass on certain words and phrases due to the nature of the strip.
Just as an aside: How are they going to handle Joe Biden: The Comic Strip?

Jack Applin (one of several people to send this to me): I get the implication of “You’re in the marines? The army must have rejected you,” but the significance of the parking lot escapes me. Are Dr. Shipley’s marine skills doubled in parking lots, so he can easily kill Leo for this offense?

Chris Reaves: Okay, this Doonesbury went over my head. Is the idea that the birthers won’t believe even the actual physical document? That they won’t show up to see it? That displaying it would be giving in to terrorists? That the birth certificate in fact DOES say “Kenya” on it? None are really funny. Furthermore, the language itself seems to imply that it’s the last option (the sentence trailing off where it does suggests the problem is with what they would see) which would be an incredibly uncharacteristic joke for Trudeau.

Okay, maybe it’s just me, but if I heard “Wee Willy over here,” my first thought wouldn’t be that the guy was ordering a child’s portion.

Actually, you are supposed to answer the phone even if you’re holding a conversation with the person in the room with you…

Heart’s mom’s comment is a bit of a CIDU, actually…

Okay, is there an actual joke I’m missing here, or is Trudeau just telling us he’d be willing to have Barack Obama’s babies?
