Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for March 04, 1979
Mike: "Dry, cracked lips? Good news! Here comes Suzy Chapstick!" Good Lord! It just gets worse! Now Carter trails Ted Kennedy by a two-to-one margin! Mark: Too early to mean anything, son. Mike: You don't think Kennedy could take it if he wanted to? Mark: Well, maybe. But he'd have to clean up his act first. Mike: His act? What's wrong with his act? Mark: Well, from what I hear, he sitll suffers from the family fondness for a well-turned ankle. Mike: Is that relevant? Mark: Only inasmuch as it reflects on his judgment. In a perfect world, it'd be nobody's business. But because of his past undoing, it's got a lot of people concerned. Mike: Is it a serious problem? Mark: Serious enough. Mike: Can't he just take shots for it or something? Mark: No, apparently they've tried everything.
