    The joke of the strip is that Haldeman and Ehrlichman supposedly prevented other staffers from meeting Nixon, isolating him. Thus, the idea that H would be standing guard when E came up to see Nixon. Because they both had German-sounding names, they were sometimes called the Berlin Wall (per leftwingpatriot’s comment.) I don’t if Chuck Colson was ever called “Checkpoint Charlie.”

    It doesn’t matter which side has more money. When money sets the terms of the debate, the vast majority of Americans lose their voice. Yes, we still get to vote, but the person we elect owes their position to rich people, and they act accordingly.

    For example, most Americans — heck, a majority of Republicans — favor a $10 minimum wage, but Congress is not acting on it because the people financing campaigns don’t want it. Americans overwhelmingly support universal background checks on guns, environmental controls on coal ash, jail sentences for Wall Street criminals and a slew of other things we’re not getting because the “job creators” (who employ workers only as a last resort) don’t want them.

    Weird – I did not send that message twice, I just refreshed the comments.

    Anyway, I was going to point out that Zipper is supposed to be In Colorado, while Jeff is presumably in DC with his parents.

    [I have always had a distaste for Jeff’s character. “The Red Rascal” really pushed more towards the “I want to skip over any strip with him in it” category.]

    Same here. He’s like Duke but with none of the charm Duke used to have.

    [GBT still drew it himself at the time]

    He has always drawn it, despite a Sunday joke about outsourcing it to India. He has a colorist, but the lines (both drawn and spoken) are his own. He just got a lot better with practice. Still, there are a lot of working cartoonists whose work is rougher than even these early strips.

    Being born on live cable TV does not seem to have turned Alex off the idea of living a life in public.

    [If I had been that brides’ groom I would have been out of there in a flash]

    Unless he was there via Skype. :)

    [WHAT melting ice caps?]

    Well, they were there a minute ago. They must have melted.

    Inflation really grows the economy. Really. It might not be GOOD for the economy—that’s a subject for debate—but increasing wages and prices has the obvious effect of growing the economy. How can you possibly not understand that?
