Doonesbury: "Sarah Palin just isn't comfortable in the presence of dark-skinned people."


Yesterday I posted about a Doonesbury strip that was actually censored by the Chicago Tribune. It should be interesting to see if this one will be, since it's a sequel:

I've just been told that the Trib will not be running Doonesbury all week, since they feel it's unfair that Palin has no input.

Added: Again, thanks to Illusory Tenant: Here is the link to the Tribune's explanation.

    I used to think the Tribune was a great paper.  Right and Left had a voice (even if the editorial staff was more right wing, it wasn't all Kruthhammer and the facists).  In the last two years it has turned into the Rush Limbag Singers.   This is the last straw for me.  I cancelled my subscription and tell everyone I know just why I will never read that rag again.

    Sarah Palin isn't comfortable in the presence of dark-skinned people, but she is comfortable in the presence of dark haired wolves and moose...because she can kill them!

  • Wish I was a Texan

    Given Jackie Kennedy's remarks about MLK in the recent book, I can't wait for Trudeau to do a 'toon on her!  Should we hold our breath?

  • “Sarah Palin just isn’t comfortable in the presence of dark-skinned people.”

    Dark-skinned moose and wolves, however, are another matter . . .

    So my comment to the paper?

    Is it a lie? it indeed the truth? Did she have them all fired? And give the guy that said the reason a lie detector test...I'm simply about truth.

    Isn't the Chicago paper owned by that creepy billionaire guy that bought the LA Times?

  • "But Palin's father, Chuck Heath, gave a different account to Conroy and
    Walshe. According to him, the presence of so many Asians and Pacific
    Islanders [attending Hawaii Pacific University] made her uncomfortable: "They were a minority type thing and it wasn't glamorous, so she came home."
    In any case, Palin reports that she much preferred her last stop, the
    University of Idaho, "because it was much like Alaska yet still
    'Outside.' "

    So, the Tribune's editor is a teabagger huh?

  • John Sexton

    She has the same right to make a cartoon as Gary does...oh wait, she is living the cartoon.
