    I admit, I had to Google Pat Caddell … and boy do I wish I hadn’t!

    Well, don’t just leave us hanging, what did you find out?

    You can tell that this is an old strip, John Travolta’s career doesn’t need much shoring up.
    The rest of them…

    Reagan was busy that day?

    I don’t think any of this bunch was hired. But someone made a lot of dough selling penguin proboscis-masks….

    Isn’t that the Pope on the far right, looking at Opus’ picture?

    ah, the eighties.
    turn around and it’s the nineties,
    turn around and it’s the twenties
    turnaround and it’s twenty-thirteen
    .
    gotta stop turning around

    Can anybody read the words on Travolta’s shirt? I’ve magnified it but still can’t tell.

    Pat Caddell was a marketing consultant for the New Coke campaign in 1985 (he also consulted for various Democratic candidates, and for the West Wing series).

    I can’t read the copyright here, but the WGA was on strike in ‘88, placing this strip just after Caddell’s disastrous Coke campaign.

    Boy George and Anita Bryant turning to each other and “acking”. Priceless.

    Nicely put. Why does every strip have to have some hidden political message in it?

    Pat Caddell is now a right wing shill on Fox News. He’s come a long way since his day’s as Jimmy Carter’s chief pollster. I believe that he was among those who predicted that Romney would win big in 2012.
