TNT: ‘Doonesbury’ belongs on the editorial page

Does Doonesbury really belong in the comics or rather in the editorial cartoon section? There is rarely anything funny about the comic strip. It is really just political satire which takes aim at George Bush, Mitt Romney and anything or one considered moderate or conservative.

While some of the cartoonist’s points are right on target, they are for the most part political jabs at his favorite targets. Whether one agrees or disagrees with the cartoonist, it should be quite clear the strip is frequently just foisting off political views which should appear with other political cartoons in the editorial section.

Please liberate the “comic” pages from political diatribe. We get enough of that in other sections of the paper.
