Doonesbury character, Roland Hedley, Twittering like mad!

So, for my debut post here on Drifter Media, we're taking a look at our old friend and uppity correspondent, Roland Hedley, who, of course, was the brain child of Garry Trudeau in his famous "Doonesbury" newspaper cartoon. Hedley has been brought back from beyond and is fu**ing Twittering now!

According to Trudeau, via Kurtz, "It became a creative challenge unlike any I've ever set for myself," Trudeau says. "Kind of a comedy haiku. It's ridiculously short. The trick is to make it seem tossed-off. Roland rarely thinks about what he writes."

Yes! "Tossed-off ... " Brilliant.

Here are a couple of classic Hedley tweets/quotes:

"No good stories breaking in failed narco-state, so @ Kabul International Hotel pool enjoying well-deserved me day."


"Palin gives incoherent 2,606-word speech in 14:20, or 192 wpm. I've said this before, folks: meth. People laughed. Now?"

Kurtz also goes on to discuss what's going on down in Austin capitol coverage, Rush, something going on at The Washington Times, the return of Al Gore to Newsweek, Peggy Noonan and that utterly foul woman of a human being, Liz Cheney.

Here's Mr. Hedley's Twitter page (apparently he just went at it with Kurtz on CNN):

Here's Kurtz's piece today in The Washington Post:

  3. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a forty foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!
