Gary Trudeau's political commentary in today's Doonesbury would be hilarious if it weren't so frightening.

Lewis Lapham provides a more thorough analysis in his essay in the March issue of Harper's.

Yes, frightening because of how much more real than a parody it is...

Oh, yeah. I've initiated this debate more than once in my small, otherwise-republican office. They don't like to hear it.

Also, on the political subject: my dad called last week to ask if I'd noticed that the president visited the "autistic basketball star." Dad found it pretty amusing that Bush is trying to improve his numbers by visiting the popular autistic kid.
