Come Back, Trudeau!

Garry Trudeau, the author of the seminal comic Doonesbury, has been on sabbatical. Damn you, Watterson for popularizing this practice. I need my cartoon monkeys to work 365 days a year.

Anyways, the Washington Post is running other lesser known comics in Doonesbury's space as a until Trudeau returns. The current placeholder is Scott Hilburn's Argyle Sweater. Hilburn obviously has a special gift for taking the foibles of everyday life and churning them into relevant and humorous works of art.

Like today's comic for instance:

Hahahahahahahahaah! Get it!? Females are bad at sports! LOLOCAUST!

The only thing worse than a bad comic is a comic that's bad and mindlessly offensive. The Washington Post gave this guy a pretty big break. A break he so obviously doesn't deserve. I hope this piece of shit comic gets pulled post haste.

    "Mindlessly offensive". Maybe they should be an "indian giver" and yank the cartoonist's contract, eh Rusty?

    Holy fuck you are a hypocrite.

    You are amazing. I moved from the DC area to Ohio for a job a little over a year ago. Comments like this would be laughed at where I am now. It's nice to know there are men out there that don't hate women. Although DC is a horrendous place at times, it beats the oppressive environment out here where everyone seems to be misogynistic. I can't wait to get another job and come back there next month. I'll have to take up drinking to deal with all the people that will piss me off again.
