Today’s Doonesbury treats the UVA rape story as fact – I did not know the comic strip was still being written!

Today’s “Doonesbury” comic strip alludes to the now discredited Rolling Stone UVA-gang rape story from November and treats it as fact:

    This tired old lefty is a poster child for hypocrisy.

    A few years ago this old fuck was chastising the music industry for trying to prevent pirated music but whenever anyone refers to his comic strip he runs blubbering to a team of lawyers to stop them.

    • That figures.

    • What a hippycrite.

      • Jason

        That’s a couple of cracks at the generation of love and freedom: I take it someone secretly wishes they’d been born in the groovy 50’s and 60’s and hadn’t missed all the fun? 😉

  • Uncle_Waspy

    Really? This crappy comic strip is still around?

    Never got the humor. Not once. I guess you need to be a Prius driving, latte sipping sociology major to get it.

    • I am surprised to hear it as well, this strip is just awful, it can’t possibly sink any lower.

      • UCSPanther

        It’s a like that dirt particle that always evades the vacuum cleaner no matter how thoroughly you vacuum.

        That said, Doonesbury is so far left that its red bleeds through…

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          It’s like 1970 never ended.

      • Uncle_Waspy

        But you know something, Cat? This comic strip captures the essence of progressivism: It doesn’t have to be true…It doesn’t have to make sense!

      I thought they discontinued this strip 30 years ago. I guess there will always be a few leftover burned out hippies to qualify as an audience.

    Like Fidel Castro, Doonesbury will end up outliving us all. As Groucho Marx said when his favorite producer Irving Thalberg died at 37, “Only the good die young. The schlemiels live to a hundred.”

  • Was it Rick McGinnis who used to have a website called “Hippy Death Watch”? Do I have that right? Brilliant idea.

    • Frau Katze

      Hippy Death Watch would be fairer….one cannot help the era in which one was born (I’m a boomer).

  • OMG, I just looked up “Doonesbury”. This piece of cr*p has been around for 43 years! What the hell, people?

    • Frau Katze

      I haven’t looked at it in years.

      • Clausewitz

        I totally forgot about this strip until you posted this, and I have a really good memory.

  • Someone forgot to tell Trudeau that his comic was never funny to begin with.

    • Maybe if you’re really stoned it is.

        Photocopier repairmen LOVE his comic strip. That’s how he creates it.
        I doubt if the senile, drooling old hack has actually DRAWN anything in years.

        He just watches the news, thinks up a snotty comment about it and tosses some templates onto paper.

        Like most lefty media types he performs the least work, makes the least contribution to the public good – but makes the most noise.

      • I don’t even think then.

    Anyone surprised by this? Never let the truth ruin a perfectly good story about the evils of white men.
