    Joanie will have something to focus on and forget about Andy.

    Since there’s only one new strip each week, on Sunday, I wish GT wouldn’t waste it on Fox-bashing. Its repetitive, even though valid. Most of us were long ago convinced, and he’s preaching to the choir. Use that one day to really entertain us.

    I’d forgotten this part. A law student, running for Congress? Was that plausible in 1974? I don’t remember (and wasn’t very politically aware at the time).

    I found it entertaining, just not insightful. At his best, GBT can be informative and funny at the same time.

    I dont see why not. I was born during this time and all you need by law is over 25 for congress, 30 for senator, 35 for president

    Then as now, some incumbents ran unopposed. If a law student is the only person willing to run against the incumbent, then sure, she can get the nomination. In Slade’s case, she wasn’t expected to have any chance of winning until a scandal erupted on the other side.

    Wonder if this is how Sheila Jackson Lee got her start. She’s right out of a comic strip.

    It’s amazing what can happen in South Carolina. I guess you’ve seen this, which is all over the news today: http://www.tampabay.com/news/nation/small-sc-town-rallies-for-fired-gay-police-chief/2188387

    I don’t recall this Doonesbury strip, either, though I’m sure I saw it. It’s neat. As for Garry’s Sunday strips, I find them entertaining. To each his or her own.

    My Lord he was a tedious, dull chap back in the day.

    .
    She’s a great Congresswoman; head and shoulders over the Representative of the Appalachian Trail.
