Learning a lot about the 1988 presidential race. Before reading this I had never heard of Laxalt, Haig, du Pont, nor did I know that Dole, Kemp, Robertson, Gore and Gephart were all running then too!

On the 5th tour through the entire Doonescape. It never fails.

There's one really wonderful sequence in this late 80s collection. In it, Trudeau riffs on Waiting for Godot as allegory of the Democratic Party's futile hopes that a savior will arise to end the Reagan-Bush grip on the White House. Other than that, it's basically a gloomy set of sequences flitting from candidate to candidate with a bit of financial scandal mixed in and not much advancement of any of the character arcs with the exception of Zonker's turn as British royalty.
