Squeamishness for the Silly

So, there are some newspapers out there who don't want to run a recent Doonesbury strip where Bush calls Karl Rove "Turd Blossom". Are any of these people who were offended aware that Bush has publicly called Rove that name?

Furthermore, I checked the subscription database America's Newspapers and found just in their archives that a total of 19 different newspapers ran articles that included the name and the fact that it was applied to Rove by Bush. I wanted to cross reference these titles with the newspapers that pulled the strip, but none of the Doonesbury articles list the titles. So anyway, If you're a newspaper out there that pulled today's strip and your name appears below, you can just bite me, alright?
