    Remember when Doonesbury was naughty, representing Phred the Vietcong character as likeable? And Zonker was a counter-culture figure? I guess Trudeau got his Establishment Lackey Card.

    THAT IS NOT A TRUDEAU. It is a cartoon by Chip Bok mimicking Trudeau’s style to make a satirical point. What I don’t know is how fair the satire is. Anyone know what Trudeau said to prompt this cartoon?

    Maybe I’m missing the point, but isn’t the intended irony that the editor thinks that the artist was punching down … but, ironically, has been murdered for it. With no possibility of self-defence. Which sort of proves that the artist was actually punching up after all.

    Oh, ignore what I said. I see I’m several steps behind everybody. I mistook the outrage to be aimed at the cartoon above, not Trudeau. (It even looks like Trudeau, I now realise.)
    I’ll get my coat…

    I misunderstood it at first too. And the satire is more than fair. Unfortunately.
