GOP, March Madness, Repeat

These thoughts were lifted from the www without apology.

G.O.P. voters still favor 'None of the above' by considerable margins. – Blogger.

I accept the fact that Santorum is genuine in his beliefs. That is what scares the bejibbers out of me. He is from a different time. His views would be very compatible with 50's. – Blogger.

It’s Romney’s bad luck that fate has dictated his only path to the presidency lies in being a huge liar. – Jonathan Chait, New York Magazine.

I'm not "interested" in Newt as a candidate, but I'm fascinated in Newt as a pompous egomaniac and arrogant blowhard who puts his own selfish interests before his party's and his nation's. This guy is all id. – Blogger.

Ron Paul is getting to be more annoying than Ralph Nader. – Blogger.

This week, Garry Trudeau’s Doonesbury will be running a week long series of strips on the abortion. However, some newspapers are considering pulling the series and running repeats because of the content. Clearly, this will be the most controversial abortion-related comic strip since Marmaduke got neutered. (Apologies – I forgot the source.)

The Austin American-Statesman deals with Doonesbury by hiding it in the classified ads. At first I thought this was because they were trying something, anything, to get people to read the few classified ads they have left after being Craigslisted.

That may be partly the case but it also serves to derail and defuse some who don't want to see Doonesbury at all.

The sonongram series Doonsebury has been running are devastating exposes of the misogynists who passed this idiotic law, which, when coupled with cutbacks in education and social programs, only goes to show what has been said for decades, that a Republican's concern for life begins at conception and ends at birth.

Much of the problem with the Doonesbury strips are the gross inaccuracy of them.

I think the papers should run them all in a prominent place.

The Doonesbury strips stem from Texas State Law recently signed by Gov. Perry. It would be helpful to have legal understanding of the way in which the strips display or state gross inaccuracy. We must begin to listen to one another. With due respect SP, what are the gross inaccuracies?
