Can a mere cartoon strip change the world? Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau is putting his money where his characters' mouths are and may well find out.
Garry Trudeau has been one of the most influential and persistent voices of liberal America since he started drawing his Doonesbury cartoon strip in 1970. And yet, before the last US presidential election, he was backing George Bush.
The reason was simple. Like all satirists, he said, he was hoping for a Bush victory because "Gore's a moving target; Bush is a stable, hard target, like Quayle".
And now he is stepping up from the drawing board to take the challenge more directly to the president. He is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who will verify Mr Bush's account of his military service in Alabama in the early 70s.
