Jim could have lived almost anywhere.
Presidents Andrew and Lyndon Johnson both became President after assassinations of previous Presidents, in different centuries.
There are many, many cases of land transferred from one state to another — due to changes in river borders, re-surveying of borders, court cases, Congressional action, etc. In 2013 the border between N and S Carolina was moved 150 feet — barely made the news. CT and NY, OK and TX, MI and IN, FL and GA all had disputes settled in the 19th or 20th century. Several E Coast states gave up land that became other states.
Also, other countries have states whose boundaries have changed. Jim didn’t have to live in the U.S. to be aware of presidential succession here.
I either don’t understand or don’t agree with your overall point, but whatever - the part I would correct is the statement that Jones claimed she threw herself at Clinton. AK State Trooper Danny Ferguson claimed Jones had offered to be BC’s mistress but she has always denied this, and her behavior throughout the incident supports her claim, not Ferguson’s. Perhaps you are thinking of Gennifer Flowers or Kathleen Willey-the latter also publicly claimed she had not pursued BC, but less convincingly than Jones IMO.

GBT named a book after that phrase – probably why it sticks in the mind. I am surprised at how often in life someone will say a line that I recognize from a D strip, although the speaker rarely knows it. You read a cartoon five or 10 times and that’s what happens.
Far be it for me to comment on a female candidate’s clothing, but doesn’t that yellow outfit get ripe after a few days on the campaign trail?
You’ve perfectly described Rep. Tammy Duckworth, D-IL. Unfortunately born in Thailand.
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.
I found it entertaining, just not insightful. At his best, GBT can be informative and funny at the same time.
Remember that this was a few decades ago, when homosexuality was still classified as a psychological abnormality.
Pretty sure Chase has not died. I’m wondering about Alice, though.
Duke died, but he didn’t stay dead. He came back as a zombie.
It’s too bad American Samoa is so far from the Virgin Islands.
