Doonesbury's Trudeau: Despicable and Degrading


Via Newsbusters: So what are the qualifications of a woman to become President of the US?  According to liberal cartoonist Gary Trudeau, the ability to “fill out a tight sweater” is among them.  Well, actually, only if you are a conservative woman candidate. Witness his hilarious Doonesbury cartoon above. Wonder if NOW will have a comment? Not holding my breath…
This is demeaning to women but comes as no surprise from this pathetic man.  When you can’t argue the facts, guess making a “cartoon” about a conservative woman candidate and her chest size is about all you got.
Want to let them know what you think of this “strip”? Send them an email here at their contact page. Heads up though, at their contact page is this little bit of information: “Everyone, including psycho flamers out to trash the culture by lowering the standards of social interaction, must enter a valid e-mail address to correspond with Doonesbury.com.”
I sent an email indicating that I was a woman and don’t consider myself a psycho flamer.  I also thought his “strip” was the type of “art” that trashes culture and lowers the standards of “professionalism”. Boy, his parents must be proud.

I stopped reading Doonesbury at least 10 years ago. Gary Trudeau must be getting desperate. His wife, newswoman Jane Pauley, must be so proud! (Gosh, do you think Pauley, now 60 years old, still fills out a sweater?)

Very interesting facts on two very different ladies. Sarah Palin Whether you’re a Democrat, Independent or Republican … the second half of this e-mail should make all of us very sick. Send this on … especially the second half. READ TO THE VERY END! VERY ENLIGHTENING AND VERY DISTURBING! By Dewie Whetsell, Alaskan fisherman As posted in comments on Greta’s article referencing the MOVEON ad about Sarah Palin. The last 45 of my 66 years I’ve spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska. I under-stand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year. Here’s the… Read more »

here’s the rest of theabove piece. this is the disturbing part NOW, if you’ve read this far … now, open your eyes … First Lady Michelle Obama’s servant list and pay scale The First Lady requires more than 20 attendants (that’s 22 attendants to be exact). 1. $172,200 – Sher, Susan (chief of staff) 2. $140,000 – Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the president and director of policy and projects for the First Lady) 3. $113,000 – Rogers, Desiree G. (special assistant to the president and White House social secretary) 4. $102,000 – Johnston, Camille Y. (special assistant to… Read more »

To conclude my contribution above, let me say …..Mrs. Bachmann is also an accomplished tough operator in her own right. Both Palin and Bachmann make MIchelle Obama look like a piker. What has she ever done? NOTHING

In defense of Moochelle, it must be said she is very good at spending some $10 million of taxpayers’ hard earned dollars on incessant vacations.

Linda,
I think you forgot to mention that Michelle O. was mandated by the courts to forfeit her law license. That is one of her accomplishments that the MSM never mentions!
Michele B. on the other hand was a successful tax litigator.
Sarah P. would be wonderful on an energy council to support energy independence. She knows oil and natural gas!

I hope everyone e-mails Trudeau directly, as I did. We must start shoving back everywhere we can. I realize that what he did was the usual Liberal/Progressive trash that these people shovel daily, but it is getting old and stale, like Barack Obama’s speeches. How could someone who never held a job before figure out how to put millions to work? I don’t consider Baskin-Robbins a job, because you don’t have to make any decisions.

Thank you for bringing The Canadian Free Press piece to our attention.
Glad to know Sarah Palin made things better for Alaska’s citizens on her watch.

This strip has nothing to do with having a female president or not. It has everything to do with a president who is simply a windbag. is it sexist and offensive? Probably, but not much in humor doesn’t tread on somebody… BTW, the story on the Obama’s law licenses is just so much BS. There are plenty of real issues to talk about instead of this constant fabrication of misinformation and outright falsehoods. Doesn’t the right think there is enough reality out there to create a swing of voters, or is this just smear politics, or in other words, if… Read more »

As a woman, I can tell you it is offensive. Trust me, I’m a blonde and can take a lot of jokes about dumb blondes. To think this “humor” would apply to liberal woman is highly delusional.
Please provide evidence of constant fabrication, misinformation and outright falsehoods that you might find here. We don’t do that kind of blogging at FOTM.
Smear enough to divert attention from our own pathetic candidates? You must be talking about Hoffa and his smear of the TEA party.

BTW Linda,
Your numbers at the bottom of that note about staff are also grossly wrong. Laura Bush had between 24 and 26 staff members, Jackie Kennedy Onassis had 40, and others were all significantly more than your “horror of horrors” letter would lead us to believe. Does anyone really believe this crap?

Mapsguy, please provide proof of the numbers you spew. Maybe then I’ll believe your crap.
These numbers for Michelle’s staff are accurate, as they have been previously posted on this website. Go ahead, take a look.

BTW, Mapsguy,
Does anyone really believe your crap?
At last count, Michelle O. has 25 staff members at a total cost of more than $1.25 million a year. In contrast, Hillary Clinton’s staff fluctuated from 13 to 19, and Nancy Reagan had 15.

You should go back to the Lord of the Rings, Eowyn. I don’t know where you get your information from but if you go to Snopes or Factcheck.org you will discover that the numbers you are stating are nothing but some idiot venting and sending out a letter to rabid people that will believe anything they read. I would hope that you, a Middle Earth MD, would be the last one to get sucked into something so ridiculously implausible.

My namesake, Eowyn, is a noble woman of Rohan. So I do thank you for correcting me. I’ve gone back to my original post, “Queen Michelle’s $1.2M Staff,” and added an Update on the staff of previous First Ladies. Alas, my Update ain’t gonna bolster your case because the number of Michelle Obama’s assistants has now burgeoned to 25, not 22. That comes straight from the mouth of Catherine McCormick-Lelyveld, a spokeswoman for Michelle Obama. McCormick told PolitiFact.com that Michelle Obama’s staff is now closer to 25 people.

I hate to tell you there, comrade, but Factcheck.org is a lefty site that specializes in pro-democrat Bravo Sierra propaganda.
We over at NewsBusters.org blew the lid off that worthless site years ago, as they were exposed for all to see as just another collection of lefty hacks.
If you want respect around here, you are going to have to do much better than that.

Eo,mapsguy is probably a paid operative OR it could be fake. Remember? the aliens in the whitehouse are pretty thinskinned,and are lavishly using our tax money to try and defend themselves.

University of Pennsylvania, arguably one of the top universities in the country, is where factcheck.org comes from. It is NON PARTISAN and has had numerous stories debunking Democrat claims as well as Republican claims. If you are suggesting that what they present is purposefully slanted to the progressive/liberal/Democratic side than your ability to process rational data is sadly lacking. The internet creates an opportunity for anyone to present anything as fact, regardless of its basis, and there are always going to be conspiracy theorists and other gullible people who will believe anything that furthers their cause and reinforces their positions,… Read more »

So how many TEA party rallies have you been to? How many TEA party web sites have you visited? How many TEA party meetings you been to? Bet if you’ve done any of this you would know that it is not merely rhetoric and there are proposed solutions. But just keep bashing what you don’t know anything about.
Guess that $300 BILLION Porkulus II that Skippy is proposing will definitely solve the international economies and sustain us through 2012 /sarc

Mapsguy: Others have rebutted points made by you in your comment, so I’ll just address this one claim you made: “University of Pennsylvania, arguably one of the top universities in the country, is where factcheck.org comes from. It is NON PARTISAN.” Are you that naive? Just because an organization claims to be non-partisan doesn’t mean it is. 1. That FactCheck.org operates out of the U. of Pennsylvania means squat. I’m an academic (Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley; Full Professor) and I know only too well how politically partisan academics are. But don’t take my word for it. There are plentiful survey… Read more »

I guess this is just another place for partisan hacks that couldn’t see the truth if it was slapping you in the face… Yep… my education at schools that you probably wouldn’t even be considered for and the FACT that I didn’t finish college is a factor here. Just a little old vet here that could care less… What you don’t have is common sense. Kill the old USA… It is absolutely what the tea party is going to do if given the chance. Penn is bad? Hmmm… Wharton is bad… just training a bunch of dummies. I hate to… Read more »

Yeah, we’re partisan, duh (Conservatives who love America)….but we do provide facts for our blog posts.
So you call us names, blind lemmings, etc. and assume that some here have never served or supported family members that served (and you’re wrong on that assumption). How convenient that you completely ignore the facts Eowyn presented to you about factcheck.org. But not surprise you pull an Alinsky. When you can’t argue the facts, just attack the target.

Maps, Maps, Maps, You sling the following pieces of dung at us: “partisan hacks that couldn’t see the truth if it was slapping you in the face” “What you don’t have is common sense. Kill the old USA” “you and the other blind lemmings” “Eowyn… queen of the misinformed” “venomous misinformation” “character assassination and conspiracy theory” Then you accuse us of “hatred and vitriol” !!!
