History will never forget the Kahleefornia recall debacle, which jerk-pressed Arnold the Gropenfuhrer Schwarzenegger to a position of power, despite the unexplained existence of dozens of women claiming to have been sexually assaulted by him. Among the hundreds of also-rans and also-almost-rans are Zonker Harris and his mom. While some in the Doonesbury universe seek office, others serve. Alex and her Seattle co-hordes devote their young, restless, and body-pierced Deaniac energy to hooking up flash art with politics. Half a world away in Iraq, a major bad boy from stateside devotes himself to liberating the city of Al Amok, ruling with a steady hand, a full glass, a devoted Chinese handler, and an economy based on looting. As fate would have it, B.D. finds himself heading upriver on an apocalyptic mission to terminate Al Duke with extreme prejudice, a story line so made-for-TV that B.D. feels compelled to bang out the screenplay on his laptop in real time. Fortunately for the man known to Honey as sir, the media red-lights the hit, though car bombers quickly pick up the option and put the project back in play. In the homeland, a wartime president has the answer to almost all the questions (9-11) but tries to shelve the still incomplete story of his own National Guard duty back in the daze. Mark and Zonk join the war against trash politics by offering a $10,000 reward for any witness who can collaborate the flightsuit-in-chiefs account, but their efforts, alas, come to naught. Yes, its a divided nation. On the west coast sexual assault charges accompany a rise to power, while back east they mandate a fall: Walden Colleges acting coach, Boopstein, lets accusations of way-personal fouls force her football team off the field. Sex parties for recruits? Who knew we were that competitive? marvels President King, ending Boopsies gridiron apprenticeship with two little words: Youre fired.
