Gary Treudeau (Doonesbury) posts his "Hate Mail"
It's called his "Blowback" section.

http://www.doonesbury.com/strip/blowback/index.html

This one is my favorite. Well, this and the "dancing Duke" on the homepage. :) Ya gotta like Duke.

I rarely read your liberal crap because of its treasonous content but have taken notice of late due to comments and complaints from friends. It is the consensus here that your strip is just an outlet for your communist bullshit. God forbid if it happens, but I would be curious to see your depiction of the Hanoi Kerry administration. He is a commie loving son-of-bitch of your ilk so I'm sure it would be favorable. We are at war, asshole!! My advice to you is to tread lightly!!

2. Did you notice the number of posts from Idaho
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 08:58 AM by T Roosevelt
I second the "glad I'm not there" comment.

On edit: and you're right - Duke is HILARIOUS doing his little dance. And the comments...

6. I'd be careful what you say about that guy
He is probably exercising his second amendment rights, and busy practicing on a cardboard target of a liberal right now.

4. I love the ones that say you have the right to say what you wish,,,,
but not the right to say that.I do not know what it is that makes Republicans so mad if anything is said they do not like yet Dem just let most of it roll of their backs.We seem to go out of our way to find things we do not like to read yet Republicans go almost nuts with foam even coming out their ears. It is almost fun to bait them. I used to do it with a Russ lover I knew and since he knew so little of his own party he always lost the fight. Really made him mad. But never would he read about the Dem and how they think. If your going to debate you better know the subject and this guy does.(Doonesbury) That is why he can hit it on the head every day.

11. Here's my favorite:
"Are you a citizen of the U.S.? If you're not, then you shouldn't have the right to free speach granted under the U.S. Constitution. "

14. Although I' m in the UK...
I've read the Doonesbury strip for years. Like the best commentary, it says something about all of us and not just the people in the country where it originates.

I'm astonished not only that your press seems to insist on treating the public like children from whom anything really controversial needs to be hidden, but that there are actually morons around over there who would write to a newspaper and ASK it to do this on the grounds that, if they don't, they are un-American.

I can appreciate how insulting it must be for those of you in the US to live in a society whose leaders want to keep you from thinking about anything and whose media are, on the whole, happy to go along with this.

At least 50% of our press is appalling but there's a lot of it and it usually gets the chance to say what it thinks.

Check me on this. Are these threats?

After what happened to Pat Tillman today,I'd like to catch the jackasses Trudeau and Andy Rooney in an elevator...I'd only need 3 minutes, just 3 minutes to take care of both of them...

Semper Fi,
Kelly

Hmmm. Let's see, 5 seconds to snap Rooney's neck like a saltine, a good minute-thirty to pummel Trudeau, that leaves you 1:25 to enjoy a smoke...just put the butt in Trudeau's fingers before exiting the elevator car.
