The Boondocks Suspended

New York Daily News – Home – Rush & Molloy: Ben Affleck engages in attack on Dubya: “Condoleezza Rice is a sticky subject at the Washington Post this week.
The paper has suspended ‘The Boondocks,’ a comic strip populated by cynical, politically aware African-American children, because of a series of jokes about the national security adviser’s personal life. (You can read the banned comic in this newspaper.)
On Tuesday, cartoonist Aaron McGruder had one of his young characters speculate: ‘Maybe if there was a man in the world who Condoleezza truly loved, she wouldn’t be so hell-bent to destroy it.’
A rep for the Post, which won’t be resuming the strip until Sunday, said: ‘We had no way of knowing whether Mr. McGruder’s assertion that Condoleezza Rice had no personal relationship was true or not.’
Rice’s office didn’t return a call yesterday.
The artist’s rep told us yesterday, ‘Not a single other paper in the nation chose to abort this week’s strip.’ “
