Thread Name: BS: Is Doonesbury going too far?
Subject: RE: BS: Is Doonesbury going too far?
Amen! umm.. right on! to Charmion's point. It's very much like the 'official' Republican platform. Why promulgate all those 'official' extreme views if they mean nothing to the faithful?

At some point, someone will do something **actual** and when challenged, will say.."It's right there in the rules!"

I remember an old line which said: "The exception proves the rule: consequently, the more exceptions, the better the rule." Think about it.

To ATTEMPT to return to the OP, Doonesbury has always had a way of poking at the superficial coverings to goings-on and deflating them to reveal the hypocrisy abounding in how things really work... and how people behave.
