Doonesbury, Garry Trudeau's comic strip can be funny, very funny or totally incomprehensible to an Englishman. His politics are of the Left, as far as that means anything. He just does not like Sarah Palin. Can American politics be that deeply corrupt? You had better believe it. In England it is different. People keep quiet about it.
