bitter left-winger, comic strip edition

Via Jim Lindgren, I see that Garry Trudeau pokes fun at bloggers in the Sunday edition of Doonesbury. According to Mr. Trudeau, left-wing bloggers like Duncan Black, Daily Kos, and Oliver Willis are "angry, semi-employed losers who are too untalented or too lazy to get real jobs in journalism" and they are so poor, they have to eat catfood. The aforementioned gentlemen are probably also unaware that we are "at the tail's end of the media's fascination with blogging."

Mr. Trudeau is no doubt upset that people no longer get their news and commentary solely from the New York Times or the Washington Post any more. That horrible internets (ha ha, I said "internets", just like that dummy in the Whitehouse) promotes wasteful competition in the news analysis area, leading to false consciousness in the proletariat, uh, I mean, misinformed opinion among the citizenry.

No doubt Trudeau is still angry at the internets for leading HIM astray back in August 2001, but what's really sad is that Trudeau himself used to be a funny and insightful commentator in an unusual forum during the Watergate era. What happened to that guy?
