Professional anti-gay may be closer.

“Everyone worked, ate, and had a place there.”
As long as you knew your place. After Wallace, sadly, was shot and crippled, he seems to have changed. That change was not a universal change. Even today. Yes, victors often rewrite history but losers are often in romanticized denial of their original intent. Southern Democrats then are Republicans now. Especially with the tea party extreme. So dream on.
Mr. Trudeau – This is one of your very best, and that’s saying something. There is no anti-body for hate and stupid.
What you say makes sense – as it is. However, those were all “good guys”. When the very talented Anthony Hopkins one day dies (may it be a long while), would anyone like to see him portrayed in a cartoon as being greeted into heaven in his famous role as Hannibal Lecter? And by that name? I feel that many people got to like Tony Soprano. So they rationalized and judged him comparatively to his criminal peers.
Yes – St. Peter’s words, not God’s, are correct. Hiccup.
Your response to Omnius was very good. You wrote: “Can you not separate the actor from the role?”Well, that’s what riled me about the cartoon. Luckovich, who is one of my very favorite cartoonist, should have separated the actor from the role. He didn’t. Even God’s words say “Tony Soprano’s finally behind (heavenly) bars”, completely referring to Tony Soprano, not James Gandolfini, who I feel has been a pretty good actor. This is not uncommon. Viewers usually pull for the protagonists often even if they are “bad guys” like in The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Pulp Fiction, The Americans, and others. It’s similar to politics, where “my side” is more important than right or wrong.
This does not say Gandolfini, but Soprano. A murderer, a thief, a gangster, a bully, now in heaven. The sick side of hero worship.

Kelley makes a good Repub. Not much more need be said.
