Chris Muir Day by Day Journeys to the Future via news-print MSM to eclipse Doonesbury's hackneyed leftism left-over from "sixties."
Chris Muir has now expanded the Blogosphere's increasing encroachment into the news-print MSM via the June 29, 2006, commencement of news-print syndication of his Day by Day Cartoon strip, which has gained overwhelming popularity in the Blogosphere. He syndicates his work at http://DayByDayCartoon.Com. His accomplishments deserve poetic praise:
For decades, the comics tableau
for satire on politics' throes
was ruled from the left
with parody cleft
from viewpoints of Garry Trudeau.
But MSM news-print tableaus
which featured for decades Trudeau
have now seen the light--
That views from the Right
should Day By Day grace their tableaus.
So now, Day By Day, it's for sure
that One whom The Left would abjure
more widely will mock
what Leftists concoct.
The name of The One is Chis Muir.
So, when will Trudeau be eclipsed
by Muir with his Day by Day strips?
In content, it's done.
In numbers, spot "one"
will soon be Muir's Day by Day strips. (If you think this is written in rhythm and rhyme, you're right-- to view it in a line-by-line format and to view a video accompanying this commentary, go to "http://PoliSat.Com/Day_By_Day_Journeys_To_The_Future.htm"-- see "Note" at end of commentary)
A special video by PoliSat.Com (see Note at end of this commentary) features an example of one of Muir's numerous cartoon-strip installments reflecting keen insight into reality which politicians so often seek to obscure.
What are the reasons for the explosive growth of the popularity of Day by Day Cartoons in the Blogosphere? They are the same factors that are feeding the explosive growth of the Blogosphere-- the heretofore unwillingness/inability of what many bloggers describe as the "MSM" (Main Stream Media), which I describe as the FDM (Formerly Dominant Media, to think outside the politically-correct, left-biased cultural bubble in which they exist. Go Chris.
Jim is a proud descendant of 18th Century criminal exiles from England who swam to the Outer Banks when the British ship taking them to a Georgia penal colony sank in a storm near Cape Hatteras. Having the prescience to prevent their descendants from becoming "TarHeels," they immediately migrated to Virginia, where, within just a few generations they worked their way up into poverty. Jim's grandfather was the first in the family tree to see the distant horizons, but his career was cut short by severe injuries he sustained when a cousin cut down the tree.
After a brief stint in the Amry (ours) following graduation from law school, he began his legal career in the state bureaucracy but was never able to break into the federal bureaucracy. Several years later, he entered the private practice of law and co-founded a small law publishing company. Later, finding the publishing of small laws unstimulating and finding his private practice too private to be lucrative, he began writing political satire/commentary. His greatest vice is taking himself too seriously.
Although he regularly teaches Continuing Legal Education courses to lawyers, he's too-often available through he Rubber Chicken Speakers Bureau to speak on politics, satire, etc., at luncheons, dinners, root canals, funerals, etc. His speaking fees are so outrageously high they border on criminal price-gouging, but as a free-market advocate, he defends his fees on the higher moral ground of charging whatever the traffic will bear.
