Rebuttal and Remix

Chris Muir in his political webcomic Day By Day criticizes the Coretta Scott King funeral and the political blog Pandagon responds. I thought this was interesting for two reasons: one, blogs “talk” to each other all the time (expecially political blogs) taking each other on through posts, but this is the first time I’ve seen a webcomic directly included in that process (I’m sure it’s not the actual first time it’s happened of course) and second, Pandagon essentially “remixed” the webcomic to make it’s point (and encouraged its readers to do so in the comments). I wonder how Muir, or any politically-minded cartoonist, reacts to that sort of reuse?
