    The highlight of the 1996 Steve Forbes’s campaign was being used as a plot device for Mike to meet Kim.

    For some of us, we have known Kim a long time. She’s the last orphan out of Vietnam.

    They’re colouring her yellow? What is this, the 1950s?

    One of the fun things about re-reading long-gone comics is seeing major events or turning points like this one.

    Among the oldest Doonesbury strips on line. Of course it has been censored.

    “To meet girls” (especially hot ones in crop tops). Mission Accomplished!

    It is possible to simultaneously meet women and give stuff back!

    Does this count as a “meet cute”?

    I suppose that Mike must have been aware of JJ when Joanie joined the Walden group, but he didn’t really get together with JJ until they both worked on the 1980 John Anderson presidential campaign. Sure worked out better this time. (And Kim even had the good sense not to be working for Forbes.)
